Commissioned by The Royal Albert Hall, Wilkie TV created an imaginative promo for the live conference ‘Imagining the Future of Medicine’.
Filmed late at night during the freezing month of December, Wilkie TV shot at some of London’s most stunning landmarks. The city was the backdrop for our narrative. Being a medical event, we played with metaphor of the Royal Albert Hall as the heart of London and the City’s streets as blood vessels leading to the heart.
The main prop used was a glowing red perspex orb, stuffed with LEDs. We wanted the only light to come from the orb itself to intimately light up the actor. This meant the architectural illuminations of London would pop and glimmer as the camera moved.
The promo video was shot completely on a Canon C300, selected for it’s brilliant low light handling and selection of lenses. The C300 was mounted to a Movi M10 Stabiliser rig from FreeFly Cinema, allowing super fluid camera movements. This flexibility allowed the operator to move with the actors and dancers on their journey. The camera was also remotely controlled from a wireless director position, allowing fine tuning of the camera’s position and iris during the shoot.
Shot in geographical order from Waterloo’s London Eye, right through to Knightsbridge, the video included over 10 locations.
The client was delighted with the finished piece, and the team really enjoyed the creative side to this project.
