Capital One “Houdini” Ad – Filmed with the Gazelle


Capital One “Houdini” Ad

Filmed with the Gazelle and a Pan/Tilt/Roll head, this Capital One/Houdini ad combines a few techniques to achieve the appearance of a seamless escape. The shot is basically a straight dolly shot (pull back), with a 180 degree roll, but it is broken into two separate passes, which are combined in post. A simple motion control shot for a very nice looking spot.

Wang Leehom x Avicii “Lose Myself” Music Video


Wang Leehom x Avicii “Lose Myself” Music Video

Filmed with the Gazelle motion control camera Crane, in a Los Angeles subway station, this video put the extreme portability of the Gazelle to the test. The rig had to be partially disassembled, taken down two separate elevators, and pushed hundreds of yards to be set up on a subway platform. Throughout setup and wrap the subways were running and riders were entering and exiting the trains. A very short window of time was available for shooting, as the train had to be stopped. The very complicated load-in, shoot, and wrap all happened in 10 hours.

The video is a great example of “Twinning”, a visual effect that combines multiple takes to allow an actor to appear two or more times in the same scene. In the subway shots, the young lady appears 5 times in the same scene. To achieve this effect, 5 separate passes were filmed, in which the complicated movement of the shot had to be repeated perfectly. These were then combined in post for what appears to be a single shot featuring the same actor five times.
