100 Acre Films just completed a new video for Glucovation, a Carlsbad based company, to promote their glucose sensor device. We very proud to have worked with them to promote a device that has the potential to help so many people.
The video was shot in one day. It was filmed at their lab, a local park, and a residence. 100 Acre Films used the Sony FS700 camera, shooting at 1080 24p, and recording to the native AVCHD codec in the camera. One of the tools we used for this shot was the Orbit Dolly from Digital Juice. While not perfect in every situation, for this shoot where space was tight, it was the perfect tool to use for some of the shots where we wanted motion.
Post was handled in Premiere Pro CC with the graphics being done in After Effects CC. With this project, we used (for the first time) the Direct Link feature with Speedgrade to do some color grading. We found the process to work flawlessly. The project imported perfectly – dynamically linked AE comps and all. And it all played back smoothly. After the color grading work was done, opening the project back in Premiere showed all the work done in Speedgrade. This workflow is pretty impressive, and will start being used more this coming year.
The team at Glucovation was really great to work with, and we look forward to working with them again on future projects.
