Video of an Art Installation
Video One recently completed a video of an art installation. In fact, the video will be an art piece of its own, playing next to the installed art! Check it out!
Art Installation Video from Video One Productions Chicago on Vimeo.
This video production required three camera operators and a lot of patience. As you can see, we had one operator on the ground filming the preparation of the art, one on the roof of the building filming the mechanics of hoisting it up and lastly, an operator inside the client’s home filming the installation of the art piece.
Not only was it very cold outside when we did the filming but there were problems with the hauling equipment as well. The art was hoisted up and through a 6th story window of our client’s high rise building. The wind had to be just right (under 5 mph), the building management’s permission was required, insurance requirements needed to be met, and our videographers needed to stay out of the way of the crew doing the installation. But as usual, all went well on the production side of things.
As we discussed with the client, we sped up the video in the editing room, added music and delivered it as an mp4 file so that it could be played on any device or uploaded to any video distribution site.
