MasterCraft Rewind Intro

Posted on: September 15, 2009

Project: MasterCraft Rewind

Client: MasterCraft Boats

Involvement:

Mark - Camera/Director

Eric - Camera Assistant

Chris Durfee: Gaffer

Both Eric and Mark went to the MasterCraft Factory in Tennessee to shoot the opening sequence for this year’s REWIND DVD. The concept was pretty simple but easier said than done, mostly because boats are designed to be in the water not hung from cables in a confined space.  While were all set up we shot some interviews with the big chiefs of MasterCraft.

We used our HPX 500 with a PS Technik 35mm adapter along with a set of Super Speed Ziess primes.  Our Gaffer, Chris, did a great job controlling and bouncing the light given the very tight time schedule. We also rented a Skater Dolly which worked great for the close stuff but we were not as happy with it for anything longer that a 35mm lens.

Update:

We finished the segment and you can check it out here.
