Know How:

Recently I was invited to work on a project with Ford Motors Europe and photographer, Jesse Rieser. The task was to build three cinemagraphs using 4K footage, Phase One background plates and a CGI car module. I tailored a workflow consisting of 4 monitors displaying the background plate, the live feed from the RED camera, and two for assembling the still and motion components into one seamless high resolution video clip ready for client review. We were able to receive information from the Phase One operator who shot the plates in Europe as to camera height, pitch and lens focal length, which were used to match the angle of view

in the RED. I processed the RED files in Adobe Premier with a chroma-key effect to remove the talent from the green background. Finally, using Photoshop I was able to export a GIF animation to accompany the daily samples I’d already exported to share with creative on their mobile. The project was such a success that I was invited to Miami to help the team complete a second set of new cinemagraphs. We spent 3 days in Coral Gables pushing the possibilities of the technique. We ended up to creating some really amazing elements for the Ford team in Detroit to use on their new website for European markets.
