A simple commercial, it's starts in close on the yoghurt pot that's
in frame one and in one move pulls back to first of all reveal that
it's not a quiet country scene but a building site and then continues
out to an aerial wide shot of the entire power station. In one continuous
shot of course!
We shot with an Adder crane, 45 feet extension, and a Cooke 14 to
70 zoom. The shot starts at 32fps at 70mm on a CU of the yoghurt,
as we pull back, track & zoom, we reveal the pile of wood the
model is sitting on and drop to about 25fps. As we pull back further
and reveal that it's a building site we continue zooming out to
14mm and drop the speed to 6 fps by the time we're at frame 4. We
then morph to a helicopter shot pulling back at 5 fps ramping to
50 fps at the end to stabilise the wide.
sunshine was created with an 18Kw HMI hidden just out of camera
shot and the colour was drained in TK out as we moved back.
