mustard-berlin have just directed and produced another film and photo production for Bentley Motors with agency Connect.
(CD Dennis Wilson / AD Richard Parsons / PM Melanie Tainty – Director & Producer Martin Bennett)

Shooting in California taking in downtown LA and several different locations all over the state we were on the road for 2 amazing weeks filming a new launch film and shooting stills photography.

For the film shoot we collaborated yet again with DP Jean-Baptist. The camera car, a supercharged Mercedes ML55 with edge system head and arm was provided by Performance Filmworks. Driven by Donny Bailey, Crane operated by Mike Barnett and Edge technician Carlos “Cafe” Cibils. An amazing and talented team of guys that were a pleasure to work with and made it possible for us to create some amazing driving camera moves. The film was originated on the amazing Arri Alexa using Zeiss Ultra Primes and Arri/Zeiss zooms. Additional fottage was captured using the Canon 5D MKII using Canon L prime lenses, operated by Martin.

Photographer Graham Thorp was comissioned once again  to shoot the stills. Using the Hasselblad H2 with a Phase One P65 back with Hasselblad lenses. The photos were a combination of statics and dynamic driving images shot in urban locations in LA and rural locations spread over the state of California. For the dynamic driving images we calibrated yet again with Move & Shoot and one of their LA based riggers Aaron Knoke.

We now move into post-production on both the film and stills. We cant reveal at this stage the model of the car but as soon as the images & film go live at the Geneva motor show we’ll upload them, watch this space…
