Ryan DPed the commercial and I was 2nd AD on set. It was the brain child of our other friend Ryan. We shot in Silver Lake and I got to see downtown at sunrise and sunset from an angle I rarely see.
The shot of the day was a fun in-camera trick. We wanted a Viking POV shot as he looks from one end of the room to the other, so we set up the RED cam on sticks about 7 feet high, then rigged the viking helmet to the camera. Here's a photo:
The camera looks straight down the center of the helmet, so the frame is flanked by two big horns. Pretty funny shot. I'm excited to see how the commercial comes out -- its for a Super Bowl competition with various cash prizes. You can google the details.
Unfortuntately the codec doesn't work on my computer, so I can't post stills from the music video just yet. I bet I'll have it up and running by tonight, though, so that'll come sooner than later.
