Micro Cinema Cameras Used for LEXUS Japan’s LC500 Web Movie

PostFri Sep 22, 2017 1:19 pm

Blackmagic Design today announced that multiple Blackmagic Micro Cinema Cameras and Video Assists were used to shoot the web movie for new LEXUS car, LC500. It was shot by Kei Takahashi, a Cameraman and founder of Tokyo-based KID Co. Ltd., on location on and above the highways of California.

With power and comfort, the LC500 was born as a luxury coupé which symbolizes LEXUS’s next generation. To bring out the attractiveness of the car, the production shot the car driving along the stunning Angeles Crest Highway in California. Shot using a number of cameras, including six Micro Cinema Cameras, the movie captured the intense nature of California and the LC500 powerfully running through the curvy road from various angles. Along with the Micro Cinema Cameras, Takahashi used two Video Assists for monitoring.

Takahashi said: “We temporarily blocked about 4 km of the road for the shoot, and let the LC500 run the 4 km. When the car came back to the starting point, we started shooting again. We repeated this several times. It took 15 to 20 minutes for each round, and we only had one day to shoot the entire movie. And since we were at an external location, we had to finish while the sun was out. It was a very tight schedule, so we wanted to capture as many angles as we could.”
