Hey everyone, 

I work for a commercial production company based in Atlanta, GA and we just launched a behind-the-scenes video highlighting the making of a commercial for the GLOCK 41 Gen4 tactical pistol. The special challenge in this commercial (and why we think it may be interesting to you) was that the storyboards called for a pivotal scene to start on a crane 30-feet directly above two parked SUVs and ended 300-yards away at the moment the plane was breached by special forces operators -- and the director wanted to shoot the entire thing in one shot. 

 

“We needed to find a way to take a series of shots we normally would have done individually - crane, dolly, steadicam - and to join them all together without the benefit of a budget large enough for heavy visual effects,” says director, Matthew Pope, who worked with Director of Photography Matthew Rogers and Special Effects Coordinator Drew Kimball to devise a shot that included the use of pulleys, a Movi rig, hand-offs of the RED Epic camera from one moving vehicle to another, and half a dozen camera operators.

To see the finished spot, as well as a behind-the-scenes look at how they pulled it off, go here: 

 

We used the following gear on this shoot: 

RED Epic Dragon

Freefly Systems Movi M10
