29 Jun Job done
Well we have returned from Fiji from our shoot in one piece … it was my idea to blog while there and through the whole assignment , but with 4.30 am starts and not finishing until well after dark there was not much time to blog
from the assignment we Shot 1.3 tb in three days .
the assignment was to finish off shooting Vertigo, ¬†a very large and beautiful ¬†super yacht Built at Alloy Yachts in Henderson . I have been working on this for almost three years ¬†to create a mini Doco andf a coffee table book .
Vertigo is nothing short of Stunning … and having worked on the making of her from the start ¬†I have become quite attached to the yacht and it was quite magnicent to see it sail in the islands . ( I will have to stop calling her “my Yacht” ¬†as I could not even afford to supply the toilet paper on it !!)
my job was to shoot stills and video from the Helicopter ¬†it was Quite a mission to get camera , operators to the island ¬†to shoot the yacht , while we did not ¬†have as much wind as I would have liked it still made great pics, and video and to working on something that in just three years ago was a bunch of Slaps of Alloy ¬†sitting on a rack ¬†, now comes endless hours of editing and the final book design
here is a link to the making of vertigo a timelapse that went for two and a half years ¬†on a canon 5 d ¬†taking four Frames a day
and a few Chopper Shots from Chris Lewis ¬†who was also there shooting a few Pictures , with me is Lance Wordsworth camera man superstar
