I recently shot a project for Eric Cook from Shine United in Madison for their client Huhot Mongolian Grill! These visuals are going to be used as animated social media ads. The theme of the ad series is “Conquer Bland” and married bad looking food with weapons! Interesting combination I thought but none the less the shoot was fun! The first time I hired a food stylist to make the food look not very appealing! Kind of counter intuitive for the food stylist! Eric found the weapons we’d be using, a medieval battle axe and knife, found on eBay and had hand made arrows made in the same vane to attack the food!
So approached the shoot as usual with some preproduction planning and pre lighting for the best end result for the animations. Pretty much a straight forward shoot keeping in mind that the shots will be animated later for the various social media channels they’ll be used in!
