Ford Transit – Film


Martin Bennett and Stephen French (mustard-berlin) produced and directed a film project for Ford with agency The Blue Hive (AD Nick Hearne). The film highlights the newly re-designed Ford Transit.

We shot the film over 5 days in and around London, Ramsgate and the wonderful Pinewood studios. This film tells the story of lighting engineer ‘Dave’ and his latest big project. The film was shot on RED One MX and also on the Canon 5D MKII. In some instance we shot with a three 5D MKII cameras, utilising its quick setup and small foot print to place the cameras in tight spaces. The lenses were all Canon L series primes 24mm, 35mm, 50mm, 85mm. The DOP was Dave Tree, with Simon Kennedy operating as 2nd unit and 1st unit assistant. Movement was brought to the piece by use of a Kessler cineslider and our superb Camera car / Scorpion Crane team. Our Jimmy Jib material was superbly shot by Arun Taylor.

The lighting rig was supplied by Simon Alderman and his great team at Neg Earth Ltd.
The soundtrack was an original composition by Paul Stoney & Joel Cadbury and edited at Redworks, London by Russ Clapham.
