No rest for the Cypher team! Following last months two global live streams, we switched it up a little, and assisted in the creation of some product videos for one of our clients…
Before the first lockdown hit the UK, one of our clients had asked us to create some slick, eye-catching sales and marketing product videos for their speech recording hardware and software.
We started by doing a complete transformation of our upstairs office, converting it into a fully functional fit for purpose recording studio. Following the COVID-19 rules closely we had ensured that social distancing measures would be respected, and masks would be worn at all times, except for when the presenter was in frame. The backdrop was constructed with 2 white screen photography drapes on stands and lit with 4 x 85w bulbs. Simple and effective!
Kit and crew
Due to the social distancing measures we are taking in the office, we limited this shoot down to 3 crew. A director, cameraman and teleprompter operator. It was filmed primarily using our Sony PXW FS-7, along with our range of Samyang prime lenses for some impressive visuals. The key lighting was provided using our SWIT S-2610 & S-2620 flexi-lighting panels, with the backdrop being lit with out PhotoSEL lighting kit. For sound, we used the small but mighty Sony ECM-77B lavalier microphone for crisp audio quality. We also purchased a 360-degree rotating turntable to assist in capturing some of the stunning cutaway product footage.
Filming & Editing
The shoot lasted just over half a day and we managed to produce 3 gorgeous product videos, all edited in house by Stuart.
