Denso



I was the DOP on this commercial for Denso. Masashi Muto was the Director.

The commercial was showcasing both athletes in nature, and cars.

We filmed in New Zealand, at Mount Cook and in Queenstown.

There was a lot of tracking involved. To achieve this, I used a MoVI M15.

I like to use the MoVI with a two man team. My Grip, Josh Dunn carries it using an Easyrig and Serene arm. We communicate with intercoms and I adjust the framing using the joystick.

This setup also works well with a small tracking buggy, and in this commercial I used the MoVI on the mountain runner, the swimmers (from a tracking boat), the cyclists, and the jogging couple.

The client requested a Go Pro to be mounted on the bike. I did not want to drop quality by using a Go Pro, so Grip Sam Strain rigged a Dragon for me. I really like the small size of these cameras. They are so versatile.

It was a great shoot with lots of locations, and a lot of set-ups. We had some challenging weather which really added to the images. I worked with my Queenstown based crew and we had a lot of fun with the Japanese crew.



Here is a wonderful Behind the Scenes video filmed by Emi Arai.
