Castle Island Brewing, Norwood MA

A sneak preview of a branding video I’ve been producing for a local beer brewery. More to come…

For the keen observer, you’ll see the Sony X70 (wide) there on the slider, and the Sony A7sii (Medium) nearby. We used a Canon 6d as a C Cam.

The screen grabs above are all straight from camera. The X70 on the left is slightly more magenta than the A7sii (top right), but certainly manageable from a color correction standpoint. The 6D (Canon Neutral Picture setting) seems to match the X70 pretty well in terms of tint.

More to come as the project progresses…

I was also spending some time shooting video of landscapes, like the Mt. Pollux video I shot last winter. I knew I wanted to juxtapose the serene beauty of the idealized wild with the frenzied blood bath that nature really is.

A few crude storyboards I made “Long Exposure” scenes

We had to re-shoot a few sequences. The first attempt to shoot the stabbing scene didn’t pan out so well. There were some nice shots, but the sequence as a whole wasn’t working in context of what the (lack of) budget could pull off.  Night time crept up quickly and cut short what I had planned to capture that day. So we walked away with no usable footage, but a better understanding of how and what to shoot next time. Here’s the original stabbing scene.
