Dave’s Grip and Lighting was hired again by Austin, Texas production company Spotzen to provide crew and equipment for the LPGA’s 2015 branding videos shot in the days preceding the CME Group Tour Championship at Tiburon Golf Resort in Naples, FL.
For the grip team we provided a 3-ton grip truck with ARRI M40 and M18 HMI lighting, generators, and a 4ft CamRunner slider. Camera department worked with Canon C300 and Canon 5D MkIII camera packages with Zeiss CP.2 Compact Primes and Canon 16-35 and 24-70 zoom lenses.
We used two shooting styles during this production. There was the sit-down-interview portion with proper lighting and grip support and then more of a run-and-gun style skit setup using available lighting throughout the golf course. Light and lean was the name of the game to get our skit shots in quickly without needing to close down a portion of the course.
LPGA 2015 Branding Videos was a Spotzen production on behalf of Sacred Cow advertising agency. Produced by Amanda Fox, Production Manager Kate Eads, Directed by Rich Tlapek, Director of Photography Greg Daniels. (www.gregdanielsdp.com).
