I’m working on a big project to shoot some top secret locations using new technologies and new techniques. Part of this project involves trying out various ideas and equipment to see how it works. So on Saturday myself, Geoff Boyle and Justin Pentecost met up to lug a motion control rig (provided by Justin), a “stretched” version of the Hurricane 3D rig and a pair of F3’s up a bloody great near vertical hill before dawn. Only a couple of the bits of kit for this shoot will be used in the main project, but we needed to look at the logistics, portability and practicalities of some of them before embarking on the main shoot next year. It’s an exciting project that should be a real eye opener.
