Recently, we shot a concept project for a fictitious product, "Silky Moist Wipes." The vide is available in this forum. This is the first in a series of themes for the same product. It's goal is to serve as a demo reel for the actors and to possibly sell this idea to a company. The main actor is a local part-time actor who came up with this idea. The woman is an acquaintance of his who owns a horse and had access to a stable. We initially set up lighting with a 4' X 4' reflector placed outside the stable which gave a nice, natural light, but clouds kept moving in front of the sun ruining the light. Eventually, we packed up the giant reflector and brought out a 2,000 watt HMI light and put a white diffuser panel in from of it to soften the light. While it wasn't perfect, it did keep the light consistent. We shot with a Canon XL2 and used a Sennheiser boom mic. We had a lot of laughs during this shoot due to the nature of the product and all the animal sounds outside the barn.
