I just had a freelance project fall in my hands the last 2 weeks that is pretty intense. The scope and timeline are both incredibly ambitious.
Here’s the idea of what we have going on. We have a 2.5 week turn (starting Monday) on a relatively large-scale/low-budget commercial we will be shooting at Qwest Stadium in Seattle, WA. We are going to be shooting a small sequence of a football game on a football field against 40-60ft length of green screen. We are also shooting other elements, such as coaches, fans, photographers, etc against green screen so that they can be placed in the background. I am looking for someone (or some people) who can help with BG tracking and replacement, adding the fans into the stands, coaches and photographers in the background, etc.
We shoot Saturday on the PhantomHD and would cut together the narrative in 3 days, then deliver plates (pre-keyed if necessary). I am not certain what the number of shots would be, but it’s an ambitious number. Some are fast moving as well as out of focus BG’s, so the detail in many of the shots would be easy to hide.
Anyway, the timeframe is from the 21st through the 1st of October for VFX completion, and at this point, we have a paltry 12K to work with. We might be able to get another 4K. I know the work is intense to tackle something this scale, but I’m hoping to find someone that sees the potential in some much larger work. This project was inspired loosely by Nike Football Write the Future.
