FX channel promo spot/ vfx photography

I had the opportunity to work with Visual Effects Supervisor, Eliza Pelham Randall on an FX channel promo spot for a new television show that starts in January. The Arsenal was the production company. Allen Daviau, director of Photography known for ET and Empire of the Sun, amongst a whole list of films, was the DP for this spot. The still photography is to be used as location projections in a 3-D space that will be used as motion freeze moves in the commercial. It was a pleasure to have the opportunity to photograph the scenes light by Mr. Daviau. The images looked amazing with the cinematic style of lighting employed by Mr. Daviau. This project shows the continued integration of still photography with motion cinematography. We started with shooting the hasselblad with a P-65+ digital back for the main backplate and covering the full range of angles with the Canon 5D mk.II. By the end of the day of shooting, we were capturing almost exclusively with the hasselblad as the directors realized the amazing detail in those images.
