Impact’s goal was to pull off this entire video in one continuous shot. The transitions appear to be done in post-production, but everything was done practically with the magic of art direction and our powerhouse DP, Philip’s amazing camera work with the MoVi gimbal. This silent LaCie video was created to loop in a showcase display.
- We fabricated a gauntlet of four connected sets to allow us to move seamlessly between them for the single continuous take.
- All sets were designed, lit and built in a studio over two days to accommodate the ambitious one-take goal.
- The main actor had three wardrobe changes throughout the continuous shot.
- We originally planned to rent an actual space suit, but those suits require a special technician and stunt person because they are airtight.
