Best of British

Here’s something I made recently, filmed at the Glen Dimplex Home Appliances factory in Liverpool.

I did quick recce and the client’s only real concern was that we had to keep disruption to a minimum.

The production line switched to making our specific colour and design when we needed to start filming, and we only had the parts to produce five of our ovens, so I had to film it as fast as I could.

There was some daylight in the factory as well as fluorescents and some other discharge lighting. But the strong key lighting in the video is from a 1.25kw and a 2.5kw Arri MSR.

I filmed it all using my trusty Hague Multi-Jib on a Heavy Duty Manfrotto tripod, and that’s on a Vinten tripod dolly so I can wheel it around the location on my own if I need to.

The clients were watching my 22 inch location monitor via wireless HDMI.

In FCPX I used the ‘Epic’ look from Luster Grade on an adjustment layer. And I’ve done a few colour corrections under the adjustment layer to balance between shots.
