*** Dulux Let’s Colour Project ***
Working with Stink UK and Director Adam Berg (well known in the moco world as the Director of “Carousel” for Phillips, shot using the Milo by the VFX Co.) Let’s Colour was shot over five weeks and took us to four continents. The shoot started in Lapa, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and ended in Jodhpur, Rajasthan, India with a couple of days in Paris and London in between.

In Rio and Jodhpur Stink UK required a light weight system with pan tilt and tracking of up to 30m that could be checked in as luggage and flown to these locations with the crew. We customed a rig with the Ulti-Head on track with a belt system that would allow the rig to run on standard dolly rail. In Paris and London the Talos was used with 21m of track. For fill in and multiple viewpoints we used the SFH-30 with DSLR cameras.
Most of the shooting was done using ten or twenty second exposures shooting preplanned moves, with the Arri 435. For the variable speed moves we ramped the camera using the features in Flair from these low frame rates up to 25 fps as part of the move.
