I have just come back from Florida, US where we shot two golf players for the US Open (golf) spot which will be aired in theĀ american channel FOX Sports. Rickie Fowler and Keegan Bradley were our talents.

The shoot started at 9am and the wrap was 7pm.

The condition was sunny and we shot several different setups with 2 units. I was responsible to supervise all the visual effects shots, making sure we got it all right. The main work was done using blue screen, tracking markers, HDR’s and getting camera measurements to make sure we have everything we need to make the spot work in post production.

On set or location I use an App for Ipad calledĀ Settelite. It helps me getting all the camera data, slates, and other informations required for post production. It is a non brainer when shooting a huge amount of material and it links straight to shotgun, making easy to keep and the information synced with the shots.
