We recently shot a campaign for AXE with Directors of Illusion. Director – Marios Nicolettes from DOI, wanted to shoot all the scenes with our two models, Cara and Leandie Du Randt, at 60fps. The off-speed footage made all the movements even more fluid and created a dreamy atmosphere. Yes, the boys had a great day on set! Never have I seen a more enthusiastic crew.

Once again we shot in AVC INTRA 100 codec and the images look amazing. I chose to shoot in FILM REC gamma and after grading, footage looked even better!

I used a very gentle knee in the paint menu on the Varicam to retain all the subtle variations in the skin tones that were near 80% or 90% lum. Very little amount of skin tone detail softening was used just help make the skin look like satin. It is a good idea to let the make-up artist look at the talent on a good monitor so they have an idea of what we can add to the look in-camera. I am always respectful of what these talented people do to make not only the talent look good, but also the DOP!

The photo of Cara above, is a frame export from the Varicam. Both Cara and Leandie were fun to work with, taking things in their stride. Not only are they beautiful, but both girls have degrees and a great sense of humour.
