This is the biggest production I’ve done for Vikas Marwaha recording this mashup cover of a Hindi and French song. Lots of people involved (see below for credits)! We had lots of dancers and extras, choreographers, musicians, along with our actors. We filmed it all in the Embarcadero area of San Francisco, mostly near the Ferry Building. Great looking locations.
Filmed with a Sony A7sII camera. Lenses used: Zeiss Batis 18mm, Rokinon 35mm, Zeiss Batis 25mm, Zeiss Batis 135mm, Sony Planar 50mm, Zeiss Batis 85mm. Tiffen Variable ND filters. Recorded at 4K externally to a Atomos Ninja Flame recorder in Prores, though the slow motion shots were recorded internally at 120fps, 60fps, and 50fps. The gimbal shots were using a Zhiyun Crane gimbal. Aerial shots with a DJI Mavic Pro, pushing that drone to the limit of it’s image quality.
