camera of choice was the canon 5dmkII, with a 17-40mm L series lens, fully open, shooting 3 second exposures every 7 seconds. shooting stills that would then create our live action sequence was great. it gave us such a massive starting resolution, from which we could crop however we wanted. it also gave us tons of information for tracking, as well as grading. i shot that corner 7 or 8 times before i got a take that was perfect, tweaking the rig between each shoot to get the smoothest possible move.
this was such a great project to work on. the guys at suspect were so helpful and dedicated to the idea. it has been a wonderful collaborative partnership. after much sweat, patience, and commitment, this is where we were able to take this project. enjoy.
