Welcome to the next evolution of office design: intelligent nature soundscapes for a multi-sensory experience. Impact partnered with the Habitat Soundscaping team to distill this complex story into a lighthearted narrative, peppered full of easter eggs, cloned actors and nuanced humor.
- The miniature office in the intro scene was hand fabricated by Production Designer, Zoe Kim. The box was mounted on pole that we later comped out in post.
- The lead actor was duplicated 13 times throughout the video in order to portray multiple roles simultaneously. This effect was achieved by filming with a robotic arm to precisely repeat the camera moves.
- The library scene (:35) was filmed at UC Santa Cruz’s McHenry Library during Spring break.
- The production was a total of five days of filming across more than a dozen scenes.
- The Niagara Falls scene (1:28) was the first ever production at our newly built Santa Cruz studio location.
- The tight wraparound head shot (1:35) was achieved with a speed ramped robotic arm movement with the camera only inches from the actor’s face.
- For the final river shot, the entire crew was wearing large yellow rubber boots, and unfortunately about 1 in 3 books leaked — so it quickly became Russian “boot” roulette.
- We built a platform bridge so we could mount the robotic arm and cameras in the center of the water flow.
