About this project
This was a feature piece for Z-Flex’s Jimmy Plumer signature model skateboards. It won the Gold Tripod for Experimental Filmmaking at the Australian Cinematographer’s Society 2012 National Awards. This uses motion control to repeat an identical camera movement at two speeds: a) high-speed to capture the skate in slow-motion, and b) timelapse over several hours to capture the background movement. The two shots were then composited together to create a unified scene with mixed speeds of motion.
