Derral and the team recently went to Las Vegas for an exciting night shoot with musician Amy Guess. She chose to do the music video for her new song “10-Times” at a skating rink, which made the shoot very interactive and unique.
Amy sang in the middle of the rink while roller-skaters around her performed tricks and stunts. What made the shoot unique was that the skaters actually held some of the cameras for this shoot–not just the professional camera crew. The skaters were given a handheld rig called a “Gimbal” that held a GoPro camera on a steady mount. The team also brought in high-energy laser lights and smoke machines to create the intended atmosphere.
The crew had a great time working on the shoot all night, then they headed north a few miles to the beautiful desert of Southern Utah to do another shoot the next day. This shoot was a continuous three-minutes-long take, so it was tricky to get the full three minutes recorded without any mistakes, but they got it done and it went really well.
From indoor night shoot to hot afternoon in the scenic red rocks of Utah’s Dixie, Derral and the team had a whirlwind couple of days working to get these video shoots done.
