3D Production

Sweet 3D has been busy with a 4 week long 3D shoot on our new Panasonic 3D camera.
With the details of the shoot still under wraps we can't publish any production information but here are some photos of the team on location.

UEFA Aerials

With the 2012 Euros on their way, UEFA sent Don out to Eastern Europe to produce aerial footage of the host cities and their stadiums.

The aerials were filmed on a cineflex owned and operated by ACS (Aerial Camera Systems).

The production coordinator on location was Sylviane and the pilot was Louis, both from Heliandco in Belgium. The 3 week shoot went without any major problems and UEFA were satisfied with the result.

Sweet New Video for 'I Am Giant'

Sweet Pictures has been busy directing and producing the latest music video for rock band I Am Giant.

The video was shot on 2 Canon 5D's with Jon Hill as the director of photography and Max Friswell was the director of photography on 2nd unit.

Their rushes were cleverly cut together by Kieran Humphries, who has put in some long hours on the edit.

Alongside I Am Giant, the video starred Lucy Drive and was shot in an old church in Paddington, London.

Last week Don worked for Century TV providing the BBC with a live broadcast at the Silverstone Moto GP.

 Working on a Sony PDW F800 XDCAM, Don shot features in the days leading up to race day and went live on BBC2 from the starting grid before qualifying and racing. The program had a record number of viewers - 2.2 million people watched the race on Sunday, twice as many as in 2010.
