Fluig Identity Project – BTS Info


Here’s a little BTS Blog on a corporate video I did a few months back. I added links to the BTS video and the final video as well.

Silicon Valley tech company TOTVS Labs recently asked Torres Studios to produce a corporate film for them. Take a look at this time-lapse video of us in action. Here you see my assistant Amy Ng and I set up for an interview with TOTVS executive director Vicente Goetten.

Our tools include a Sony FS700 camera for our A-Camera, a 5D Mark III for our B-Camera, and F&V K4000 and Z96 lights.

We also used a Konova slider for B-Camera to make our secondary camera more dynamic. For sound, we used a Sennheiser G3 wireless-lav system and Rode NTG3 shotgun microphone.

The windows in the background were blowing out badly so I had to blast Vicente with two LED panels instead of the usual one to counter that problem. I used the F&V Z96 to add a slight backlight to the shot as well. Special thanks to my make-up artist Claudia Ponce did a great job keeping Vicente looking his best.

We also had to eliminate many of the overhead lights as the light temperature of the fluorescents above did not match our daylight balanced LEDs. This was a difficult balance as we couldn’t turn off all the overheads as the shot look too dramatic and we didn’t have the budget or resources to re-light the entire office.

Here’s the final video:
