Here’s another example of a low budget spot for a decent sized brand. The brand was Fit-to-Fight the production company was Famous No.body. The spot was used for web and other promotional purposes.
We had a decent sized crew on this one but nothing all that fancy in terms of equipment. We shot on Canon DSLRS and used Canon lenses.
I worked with Famous No.body to conceive the idea. I also directed shot and edited it.
This is a good example of a low budget, unsupervised, “run-and-gun” spot for a large brand. The brand was Hormel — the agency BBDO. The project premiered on the deck of the USS Midway in San Diego at Hormel’s annual bacon festival.
I reverse engineered the spot from footage I took with a short film in mind. On occasion I’d take advantage of other situations like work or leisure to gather footage to accompany an idea.
I conceived the idea, shot and edited the spot with very little crew.
