Special Olympics Texas Spot – Filmed at Pacific Motion Control with the Graphlite

Special Olympics Texas from Landia on Vimeo.

These spots were filmed for Special Olympics Texas, for their “We See Abilities” ad campaign>. They were filmed on the stage at Pacific Motion Control, with the Graphlite motion control camera crane. Multiple passes were filmed, at multiple frame rates, both forward and reverse, to allow for the multiple elements to appear in each piece. The safety and comfort of the babies was the highest priority on set and the Graphlite allowed for safely and precisely moving the camera very close to the children. The spots were filmed on an Arri Alexa.

Ecko Unlimited Commercial

Spec commercial for Ecko Unlimited featuring a ton of motion control by Pacific Motion. Multiple passes were filmed using the Gazelle motion control camera crane. For the first pass, an actor in a Chroma Green suit was filmed as he “painted” the man on the wall. In the second pass, another actor stood with his back to the wall, then “broke away”, wiped himself off, then walked away. A third pass of clean background plates was then shot. This was done over multiple setups, in an actual dirty parking lot and alley in downtown Los Angeles.
