For the past few months, we’ve been working on some national broadcast commercials to introduce/promote the new Stealth 4×4 Night Hawk Electric Vehicle. We had two days of shooting in two very different locations (one out in the middle of nowhere, and the other on a private golf course) and both were a lot of fun. Here is a short behind the scenes video of the crew at work. You can see the final commercials and read about the gear we used below this video:
Gear We Used
As you can see from the video above, we really put our 18′ Kessler Crane to work on this project. It wasn’t easy to move around out in the fields and in the woods, but it was totally worth it for the shots we were able to get. The other Kessler product we used was the Philip Bloom Signature Series Pocket Dolly, which we used to capture the opening scenes of the second commercial below. The big surprise of the project though were the GoPro Heroes. We utilized three of these tiny cameras and mounted them all over the vehicle. That’s how we were able to get some of the amazing shots like the underwater shot, scene of the wheel well, the driver’s POV, etc. We absolutely love these little cameras! The primary camera on the shoot was the Canon 7D with a Ziess 24mm ZE lens and we used the Panasonic HPX170 on the jib.
