About a month ago,the guys from ASUS Republic-of-Gamer approached me for a video project. As they were preparing the launch of a new graphics card for overclockers called Matrix, they needed a video that would show how the new defroster feature on it works. The guys over there had seen the VenomLapse video I had made about a year ago and wanted something similar to accompany the demonstration video.
We didn’t had much time to complete this project, so we got to it very quickly and it took us less than two weeks to wrap up the initial planning, storyboarding, shoot and editing. It took then a few back and forth to finalize some adjustments to the clip and have the final version ready. The video can now be found on the official ROG youtube channel. Here is the version without the text (I prefer the video without all the marketing wordings):
If you had seen the venom lapse video, you might notice that on this one is much more crisp when it comes to the time lapse section. This is due to the fact that when I shot the venom lapse I hadn’t received my intervalometer to do proper time lapse photography. But for this one I had it all. Intervalometer to take stills at regular interval and a full frame Canon 5DMark II camera. I could create a 5k time-lapse sequence of the freezing and defrosting of the card which resulted in an amazingly more detailed and sharp picture.
What do you think? And a quick shot of what the set looked-like:
This video just confirmed how much I love shooting stuff with frost. Next step now is to freeze a whole system and add some more camera pan/tilt and why not bullet time… Stay tune!
Big thanks to Richard for trusting me with this project, Adeline for your help on set and the banana (see picture above) for being so patient during the shoot.
