Interesting gun barrel type effect...

Post by pete1234 » Wed Aug 08, 2007 1:00 am


I was talking to a freind who did some stuff for James Bond, specificaly where they shot the famous gun barrel thing at the beggining. He said they had about a foot of tank barrel infront of the camera.

Got me thinking...

I was contracted to do a promo video for a firework company (who I also happen to work for) and I thought a down-tube shot would be cool.

To setup the camera, i set it back on the triod looking at the sky. I unfortunatly couldnt use the mattebox so the sky isnt quite as blue as I had hoped, but the effect is there.

I used a wide lense which took the overall lense size up afew inches and allowed a peice of 4 inch water pipe to sit ontop very nicely.

The whole aparatus looked like this;

Came out quite well i think...

Let me know what you think,
