We were working in Macau near Hong Kong, when we received a call asking for help to create this movie with both the mens and womens England Cricket Teams.
So we cancelled the play time at the end of the job in China, changed our flights and flew directly home from HK to London, just in time to set the rig up (with severe jet lag) with the talent arriving the next morning.
We used 120 degrees of an 8 meter diameter system and had with us 80 cameras. We only used 61 of them and put 2 Canon C300s on either end to capture the movement before and after the shot.
Also using our incredible controllable trigger system, which allows us to change the firing of the cameras. So rather than firing all at once, they could fire along the path sequentially, with precise controlled timing with accuracy of 1/10,000ths of a second.
We ramped the speed of the firing to start fast and then slow, and then other way around. This was all done on the fly, allowing us to not interrupt the shooting at all.
From the trigger being fired to a fully aligned preview movie, took about 12 seconds. Allowing the director to view it on the set moments after the shot was taken.
We provided the movies in 6K to the client, allowing them to digitally zoom in and not lose any quality and still keep the 4K resolution needed.
