Sensorium Works// George Saunders' "Lincoln on the Bardo"

A few months back we had the fine folks of Sensorium Works at our Brooklyn soundstage to shoot their virtual reality adaptation of celebrated short story writer, George Saunders' first novel, "Lincoln in the Bardo". Though the book itself doesn't drop until Feb. 14th, filmmaker Graham Sack and his team wanted to contribute their vision of one of the key chapters of the book in the form of a full on interactive short film shot entirely with a 360 degree camera. The New York Times just released this imaginative piece today and can be viewed through the NYT VR app.

      The short film focuses on President Lincoln and an encounter between him and his son where Lincoln goes to the cemetery soon after his son's burial, removes his body and cradles it in grief. A list of different characters appear from a number of different sections within the book for the viewer to come across in this interactive representation. Before coming in to our studio rental space to shoot the remainder on our green screen, the Sensorium team shot on location at Brooklyn's Green-Wood Cemetery, mapping out all of the character placement, inch by inch so that they could stitch it all together seamlessly for your viewing pleasure. Take a look here.

Sensorium Works // George Saunders // VR Adventures

NYC's very own Sensorium Works came in for a rather extraordinary green screen production, shot entirely in 360 virtual reality for a short film based on writer, George Saunders upcoming novel,  'Lincoln In The Bardo'. Before coming into our photo studio in Brooklyn, their team was out on location at a local graveyard where they shot and mapped out what would the setting for the film with director, Graham Sack. Once in the studio, everything had to be precise so the placement would line up perfectly on green screen. You can tell that this crew was well versed in this process as they certainly made it look easy throughout their few days with us at the studio. Looking forward to see the final product in this interactive film experience.

Converse Shoots Greenscreen

Converse was on set this week shooting some pretty elaborate tabletop shots in front of a greenscreen cyclorama. To promote some new winter footwear coming out next season, they used dry ice and a fake snow machine to simulate weather conditions and modified the lighting to simulate the street in New York they filmed in the week before. An excellent use of our beautiful greenscreen stage

Mizuno Wave Video Release

To Wave Or Not To Wave...

After an incredible amount of post-production, Mizuno Running North America has finally posted the commercial shot entirely on our greenscreen stage. It's hard to believe the entire thing was shot indoors and in one place! The animation in here is astounding, we're so impressed with what they did, and so happy they filmed it here with us. Check it out!

Lights! Camera! Action! (and MORE LIGHTS!)

Last week, director Sigurd Widenfalk came to Be Electric to shoot a video for designer Charles Warren. What a shoot it was. A TON of lights were set up putting Be Electric's 900 amps of power to full use. This is what our 40' cyc is MADE for. Heck, there was even a green screen set-up involved. Combine that with a pair of RED Epic 5K cameras, and this shoot was one for the record books for Be Electric photo studio.
