Dimplex Fireplaces

Studio set builds

Thinking Juice came to Kube & Andy Cahill to capture different set builds for the latest range of fireplaces from Dimplex. Andy would be capturing the photos, and we would capture the video footage.

We were commissioned to capture a number of shots of each fireplace, rather than produce the videos. We were not at all involved in the post-production of the clips (although we did do the colour grade, and the edit on the video). We wanted to capture flowing shots of the fireplaces in their natural install environments, cutting between wider generalised shots and more detailed shots of the fireplaces.

Motion was going to be a big part of this shoot, so we opted for the Kessler CineSlider with the 3 axis motion controller. This enabled us to shoot low down and in between gaps which would be impossible on a traditional dolly. We used the slider on every single shot, it gave the motion that a static scene required, to make it look alive.

Equipment

We used our in-house Canon C100 MkII as our camera body for the shoot. It was the perfect camera for the shoot, being small and light enough to mount to the Kessler CineSlider, with the USM Canon 24-70 F2.8 attached.
