NBC - The Openmusic and commercial
NBC - The Open
This was interesting. NBC wanted to promo their coverage of The Open with something giving a sense of the history of the event. So I was asked if I could do something with the notion of the original rules being written in a pub. Using one light and a small smoke machine we managed to get a sequence of images that were perfect for what they needed. Shot on Sony F5 using zeiss cine mod stills lenses. It is all shot with a 50mm and and 85mm. The final image is barely graded as what came out of camera had a lovely feel to it. A local historian came to help us with the wording and show us how to use an old quill. As soon as he sat into the table to practise I started rolling. He was so engrossed in what he was doing that everything felt correct and natural. The street outside went quiet and traffic seemed to disappear. For a short time in a Scottish pub, it felt like we had been transported back 100 years. Very happy with what we got. Sometimes less really is more.
