Hi all! I will soon be shooting my first car spec. I'm doing as much research as I can in order to craft a well-polished and beautiful piece, and to understand the logistical requirements and best practices. We're aiming for a very moody, narrative driven off-terrain piece, employing a black arm setup as well as some drone work. Looking for some guidance, tips, advice - what has everyone learned from their car shoots? Looking back, what would you have done differently from the beginning? What technical difficulties did you overlook?

Had the negatives scanned, graded, and 2k footage stored in a hard drive. The drive crashed. Data recovery guys were asking a lot of money. I got it scanned again now. I shot this with a focus puller and a driver one early morning on Kodak 200T.

CAR DP needed
Maurizio Zappettini posted a topic in Jobs, Resumes, and ReelsHi, I’m looking for a car cinematography specialized DP for a high end SPEC commercial. Green screen experience is required as the featured car will be driven on a large green screen cyclorama. Although a car specialist, this person must be good at lighting people as well. The shoot will take place on July 25-26 in Los Angeles. Non-Union shoot. Pay negotiated upon experience. Please apply only if you specialize in car cinematography. We need to confirm someone ASAP. If interested, please email a link to your reel/portfolio to firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks.
Hi all, I'm brand new to this forum and happy to have discovered it! This is a little project my wife and I did together; a spec commercial competition guest judged by Merlin Crossingham, Creative Director for Wallace & Gromit & Peter Jackson, of, like, everything (but mostly known for The Lord of the Rings, Hobbit, and The Adventures of Tintin), among others. We are in the early stages of starting a commercial production company, and as part of a contest, we were challenged to come up with a film based on the theme of "Happiness" for an English company called Sofa.com (they also have locations in Paris and NYC), so we went to work, made a 30 second spec commercial, starring our son and dog, and we were thrilled and honored when our little film made the short list of 12 finalists. We would love to get some feedback from this crazy talent pool here and while the winners are going to be picked by the judging panel, but there is a "fan favorite" film as well, so admitedly, this is also a call for help! Please go to watch the film at either below link and if you think it deserves it, click the "Like" button. (It's kind of a pain in the butt because you have to be signed in to youtube for the "Thumbs Up" to stick but every click helps, so we really appreciate it!) We are just a little family operation and as such don't have much in the way of "contacts" so we are reaching out here on this forum to draw attention to it. Please forgive my naivite if I am doing something wrong, but we are in the final weeks of this competition and are only 8 votes behind for Fan Favorite, (the fellow in the lead is very good, and a little more established in this world, so frankly I thrilled we are as close to him as we are!) Maybe your votes can turn the tide for Fan Fav, and with that prize (a gift cert from the Apple Store) we can get some new, better equiptment, and turn up the notch on our little production endevors!

How to source a DP for Underwater Spec?
Nnamdi Ejim posted a topic in DirectingI've been working with an underwater photographer on developing a spec idea. It would be about creating the Cover Catalog photos and promotional video for a fictional clothing line, RENQVIST. Much of the original prep work can be seen in my evernote. https://www.evernote.com/shard/s195/sh/f0166ea2-7f53-4f3f-95e2-3237f2effdcb/abc02fd462d7d4814e324e62b9f53e70 I've even created a rough sketch of the concept by recutting a great video I saw on vimeo. https://vimeo.com/76786516 Password: renqvist Having taken the project this far, I realize I very much need the help of a seasoned Underwater DP, to figure out the lighting and shooting requirements. NOW I'm stuck. Where are people like this? I've done some unsatisfactory searching and thought to ask the community here. How do start sourcing a DP for spec work, if I don't have many connections? Especially, when I want to do something as specialized as shooting underwater. Any help/constructive advice/constructively telling me I'm insane is appreciated.
