I've been hired to shoot a 30 second advert for an electric scooter, my director and the client are hoping to make something very similar to the first 25 seconds of this advert:
Firstly, I can't tell if the first few shots in this advert are of an actual scooter or if it's a 3D rendered model, what does everyone else think?
We won't be filming the scooter moving at all, it will just be a sequence of closeup product shots in which the scooter remains stationary with lots of lights reflecting off of the surface of the scooter until the last shot which will be a wide reveal.
This is the first time I've filmed anything like this, and I was hoping that the good people in this community would be able to give me some advice on how a look like this could be achieved or maybe point me in the right direction so that I can do some more of my own research?
Unfortunately I am working on a very small budget, so I'm afraid lowest cost option is all that is available to me.
