About The Spot


This zero budget, :30 second commercial was shot on location in a single day.  The client wanted it bright and airy, and requested "larger than normal" headroom to guarantee that the spot is 100% TV safe.

Although it looks quite simple, the lighting setup is pretty big - there are three 1200 HMI pars through diffusion camera right, a wood 2' x 4' goal post truss with 3 x 650 watt fresnels with full blue as top lights over the bags of money, and three KinoFlos as key and edge lights on the talent.  Fill was provided by standard 4' office overhead lighting with KinoFlo K5500 bulbs. It took 5 hours to load in and setup the room, 2 hours to shoot it, and 4 hours to load out.
