万事俱备 一镜到底

With CGI becoming the end-all and be-all of special effects it’s interesting to look at different ways to create visual effects. The beauty of the recent Turkish Airlines “Epic Pool Dunk” spot reminds us of how intensive planning can create a spot which can outshine any fancy CGI effect.

As the sponsor for this year’s Euroleague final, Turkish Airline grouped 11 top basketballers in a pool to choreograph a massive slam-dunk for a 30 second commercial. With no cuts and no edits, this epic relay slam-dunk was perfectly achieved in 1 take (after 22 previous takes!, see the making of here). The Sunday Time ‘Icons’ is created to bring forth six iconic cultural figures, from Rodin’s Thinker, Forrest Gump to Daft Punk in one set and in one shot. With seamless transition of costume, prop and settings, the ad ingeniously replicated the 6 icons.

Think the challenge of one-shot commercials as stage plays, there are absolutely no mistakes allowed, both of them takes a painstaking preparation and rehearsal to guarantee all the element, from lighting, setting to performance, are all precise. Once you succeeded, you are guaranteed to enjoy the applauses and cheers instantly. No finishing of computer works can achieve the same satisfaction; this is the charm of producing ‘one-shot’ commercials.

The Sunday Time ‘Icons’.

The Making Of Icons

 

当强大的CG技术在电视广告制作成为无所不能的工具时 – 它既修饰了人为的过失,也制作出各种眼花缭乱的视觉效果……反观现在不依赖CG而同样出彩的广告就显得弥足珍贵了。 ‘

无独有偶,在同期推出的两个好评如潮的电视广告:土耳其航空的“游池大灌篮”以及美国《星期天时报》的“偶像”都不约而同地用了无剪片无编辑的“一镜到底”的手法,凭借精心的策划、反复的彩排和各个在场工作人员的努力,制作出的视觉效果完全可以媲美CG大片。

作为本年欧篮决赛的赞助商,土耳其航空公司的全新广告片齐集了11名欧洲顶尖球员,要求他们协力完成一个超级无敌接力大灌篮。在23次NG后,球员们终于在第24次完成这个“旷世举动”,; 而“偶像”则需要要在同一空间,用同一个镜头,重现罗丹雕塑“思想家”、电影男主角“阿甘”和乐队Daft Punk等具有时代代表性的6个偶像的风貌。在服装道具和布景天衣无缝地过渡当中,广告一气呵成地演绎了6个人物。

如果把一镜拍摄的广告片比喻为舞台表演就再适合不过了,因为两者都不容有失;为了把灯光布景和幕前表演等元素做到精确到位,两者都需要通过繁冗的准备和彩排;立竿见影的成功带来的掌声和欢呼,这种满足感是任何由电脑成果无法比拟的,这就是“一镜到底”广告的魅力所在。
