I must admit, I did not expect that the director´s Cut of the Lenovo Commercial would end up in the Cinema. The more then 90 second long Director´s Cut is now playing at the Cinemas in UK.
Sometimes it is great fun and a privilege to do commercials.
This project, a 5 days(nights) shoot in Kiev and Odessa with director Martin Campbell and assistant director Bruce Moriarty was one of those…
We rented one of the biggest container harbor ´s I have seen. The local crew where very helpful and helped my gaffer to build a “moon”, where I ( wireless) could mix between daylight and tungsten and move the 100K softbox all over the 4x football field size area.
We filmed in Odessa for 3 nights, then moving to Kiev for EXT street and some beautiful Interiors. The great stunt´s where precisely supervised by Gary Powell. A big kiss to Producer Diane Leuci that that made it all happen very smooth.
Bruce and I. He – always smiling and calm.
