I had the pleasure to do the colouring on director Christian F. Schüssler´s 5 x Nordic Top Gear promos for BBC Brit.
The Stig thrashed around the track with five different Scandinavia celebrities.
The main cinematographer for the shoot was Espen Olsen. A wide range of cameras were used, Red Dragon, RED Epic, Sony FS7, GoPro, DJI Inspire, AEE Actioncamera.
So matching all these different sources was challenging, especially since the look was high-key and vibrant. The GoPro images from the interior of the car had constantly changing light, so we tried not to fight that aspect too much. It´s better to go with what you have got.
Alot of the shots on the track were shot with a Russian Arm.
The creatives wanted a rich, punchy, vibrant look in the true faith of Top Gear!
Not all the promos are released yet, I will publish them as soon as they surface.
