Volvo V90 & S90
Another big project with the amazing sweden car brand: Volvo.
This time we had two new models on our set: the V90 and the S90.
The project is composed by 4 sections: on studio shooting (abandoned factory plant), outdoor on mountains (Dolomites), interiors and the security / people protection onboard technology and finally the park where we did the 360°.
First we went to the ”studio”, for the interiors and some exterior. As usual we had 8 hours from park the cars, shoot, pack our gear and leave!
This was my first time on a set like this. We had some troubles for the electricity in fact, we rent a generator. Its noise was our soundtrack full time. Also, the dust was a big hassle to deal with. The hood or a window covered by a little layer of dust is not that great when you work with such a big brand as Volvo.
Second location: the amazing Dolomites. Are there any better places? In fact we weren’t the only one shooting up there. We found a Monaco based media agency called In Motion, that was shooting a teaser about new Alpina models. Awesome gear and awesome cars.. Damn.
The mountains shoot took 2 days and winter days didn’t help us that much!
On our way home we shot the third chapter dedicated to the technology. Simply awesome. Watch the video to learn more.
Last chapter: 360°. Maybe the easiest. Set all the 6 GoPro Hero 4 with the right settings, put them on the ”Fredoom” cage and press ”REC” on each camera. Then edited first with Adobe Premiere Pro to sync them, export each camera by its own and made the last step on ”Autopano”. make sure to use the proper browser to fully enjoy the 360° video (e.g. Google Chrome).
