Red Rover

One of my favorite times of the year...Halloween.  And keeping with tradition we HAD to do another Halloween video this year.  Knowing it was going to be tough to beat last years, Halloween '15 videos, we started thinking of how we could outdo ourselves this year.  I wanted to draw from childhood games so I came up with the concept for Red Rover after we kicked around several ideas.  We had some amazing help from cast and crew that brought this idea to life.  Everyone jumped right into the spirit of it all.  Take a peek...      

 

 

BEHIND THE SCENES

The Fall:

In order to get this we needed our actor to really commit to the fall backwards to the floor.  With that in mind, we setup the camera on a tripod and took a picture of the scene.  Then we brought in some cushions setup behind him to fall on.  Got that shot. And the rest was done in post, masking out the cushions with the picture we took of the empty floor.
