Feel free to ask me anything. This commercial is part of a much bigger 15 minute short film I was an operator on in New Orleans. Around 85% of the shots in this commercial are mine. I destroyed two 5Ds and a Zeiss prime shooting it. The plan was to destroy the t2i but that one came away unharmed.

The shot where the Jeep is going through the water and the camera is attached to the side of the door. It's about a one second shot in the commercial at :16. Right after the cut the camera went completely underwater. The shot is amazing and the camera was still rolling when I pulled it off but it and the lens was full of water and mud.

The second camera bit the dust (literally) at :03. The camera is mounted on a four wheeler and we are speeding down the dirt road. I think the vibrations really messed it up. But the lens was good.

Sounds nasty, but I guess your budget covered it. :P

It's funny you say that. After the first one went out on the four wheeler I asked the producer about it. He looked at me like I was nuts, held his arms out, and said "Look around at all this stuff! Does it look like we care?"

We had more people and gear on that shoot than we usually have on a big movie.

The budget was $1.5m. Really.

I guess at those sums a cost of Zeiss glass and few 5Ds is peanuts :D

Yeah four days of shooting and LOTS of stunts. I can't wait for the 15 minute short film to be released. We crashed a lot of cars.

how do you compare the alexa and 5d? what do you love/hate about each side by side? i'm only curious.

sounds like a sweet project, commercial came out great.

You can't really compare the two. One is a high end digital cinema camera that shoots Prores 422 HQ at variable frame rates with SDI outputs, a high resolution viewfinder, and a huge dynamic range. The other is a consumer DSLR that shoots compressed H264, has no real output, no viewfinder, and a more limited dynamic range. In the end, you can't really tell the difference, but in operation they are completely different and not comparable.

The two camera systems are on set for two different purposes. The do complement each other well in that they can be color corrected to match very well.
