  1. #1 Ryds "Peebreak" Shot during Corona Atlas orion / monstro. 
    As the title says, here in Sweden we are corona deniers, no lock down. Just less people on set.

    This little film we did as a homage to Roy Andersson´s old commercials for Trygg Hansa. RYDS Bilglas is one of the two biggest carglas chains here in scandinavia. The hope is to bring some top of mind attention to their brand with a bit of humor.

    Shot it on Monstro with my 65mm Atlas Orion. And then we did some CG trickery. The original idea was to actually smash that car with a rock, but this way we hade some fun CG to do at the office during corona and as the bought car was intact post shot we got another company car so the guys dont have to take the subway back and forth to work.

    Nice work! Played it several times and still laughed.

    Camera and lens combo worked well too.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks, Glad you liked it.

    BTS film, closeup and last shot was actually shot with helium and Orion 40mm. Monstro + 65mm and helium + 40mm gets about equal FOV I noticed while shooting this, very hard to tell the two appart if matching the DoF with iris.

    And poster is a stitch from multiple helium/orion 40mm frames, a pan around with super sampling to make a highres 8k 70x100mm poster.

    Thanks.

    Its a swedish thing. Back in the days when Sweden was a bit more on the extreme socialistic side we did not have advertising on TV so the only commercials that we saw was what played before the movies in the movie theaters. And me and a lot of other kids always made sure to get in early and sometimes cared more to see the commercials than the actual film, and a lot, if not most of the commercials back then where directed by Roy Andersson and they all had this kind of one take style to them and I loved to see them as a kid and I still do. Find it nice the way he just stick the camera in the corner and let the action play out.

    But yes, even though I really wanted to do it as a one take as a homage to Roy I could not resist going in and do a closup. Did a animatic before shoot where it was just a single take but then I liked the confused look of the actors face, so yes did not completely Roy it this time maybe next time. :)

    @ Roy - them were the days!! They were real short films, loaded with anticipation, true cinema. Reminds me of 'Carling Black label' etc.

    Now days, advertising seems so shiny, glorious, explosive .... but all too often something is missing?

    The medium close-up was a good call instead of one single camera position. Also, I think a telescopic camera crane move would have changed the simplicity and realism of the comedy.

    Still laughing...

    On a micro-budget, I believe just the 40mm Orion could do the job.

    I presume you could even use an anamorphic on the Red Monster and a regular spherical lens on the Red Helium and it would still cut together.
