Behind-the-Scenes with Vida Manila Episode 1
When people say that production work is taxing, you better believe it!
If I could give an overall theme for our shoots it would probably be improvisation. You must know the story of our first shoot with Fit Food Manila, but I must say this particular shoot with Vida really showed off the team’s skills in this area. Is the hallway looking a bit empty? Let’s bring this beautiful couch over to spice things up. Does the scene need more life? Let’s be extras ourselves! Crane isn’t working? Here’s a chair with wheels you can shoot with! (This has to be my favorite)!
With every shoot, there will be various obstacles that come up. Be it uncooperative gear, lacking light sources, or even getting stuck in an elevator (when you were only there to hold it for the model to walk into) Yes, this happened to me.
We do our best to just roll with the punches and make the best of every situation. And hey, we still managed to wrap up a bit ahead of schedule! The 2 days we spent shooting this video were crazy busy, but no doubt an amazing experience!
