The storyboards are approved. The set is prepped and lit. The food is ready for its close-up. LIGHTS. CAMERA. ACTION!
Easy, right? Well, what you may not know is it took two days, seven crew members, tons of video lighting and equipment, special effects rigging, specialty food equipment and then some to shoot two nine-second videos.
Oh, and I didn't mention all the footage editing and post production time.
We love shooting stills and video, but there's a lot of work that goes into it. If you're considering getting into shooting beautiful food and still life videos, remember, it can be way more complicated than you think!
