GM wins ACS Gold for “Z-Flex Skatelapse”

We’re uber excited to have been awarded a Golden Tripod at the Australian Cinematographers Society awards, held at the Novotel Manly Pacific in Sydney!

It was one of those projects that required no internal discussion, workshopping or debate. We all know what we wanted to achieve, and it turned out precisely as envisioned.

To celebrate, we’re releasing a little Behind The Scenes video. We’ve had rather a lot of people – cinema nerds and otherwise – asking how it was done. So we hope this demystifies the process a little:
