Portfolio Update: Infiniti QX50 BTS Commercial

At the beginning of last year, we were flown out to LA to capture the official behind the scenes of the filming of the Inifiniti QX50 commercial for China – filmed by DOP Phedon Papamichael ASC and Directed by Juame Collet-Serra.
An amazing shoot set over 5 days, there was a lot to capture. This week we revisited the photos and have now added a selection to go alongside the video on our portfolio.

Time flies when you’re having fun! Constantly working on different projects it’s hard to keep up with sharing what we’ve been up to. Six months ago today we were live side on an active runway in Cambridgeshire filming some slow mo product shots for Go Travel.

This time last week we were in sunny Paris! Filming and photographing on a two day shoot for Clarins Paris we were capturing the build of a 130m2 installation for their annual Brand Seminar as well as the actual event itself.

Eiffel Tower
Today the Eiffel Tower marked it’s 126th anniversary of it’s public opening and we just so happened to be in Paris for a photo shoot! After a very early start and a lot of photographing, we managed to finish late afternoon giving us just enough time to visit the Eiffel Tower before heading back to London.

Great time in Munich earlier this week shooting with the ‪Birdycam 2 and Sony ‪A7s‬, DJI Phantom 2 with gimbal and GoPro 4 for some great aerial shots, plus the Canon C300 and C100. We had a fantastic crew for this shoot and working with The Creative Grid is always a treat. We’re looking forward to sharing the final adverts when it’s all live.
