Annie / Mad Men BTS Video
Any further flash coding tech help mucho appreciated!]
If you saw Vanity Fair's Mad Men spread in the current issue, here's a quick behind-the-scenes video of Annie Leibovitz shooting it. (After the obligatory pre-roll ad, of course.)
Just a little bit of lighting seen in this one, and she's mostly aping ambient with the Photek Soft-Liter and a voice-activated boom again. Balance-wise, she is more fine-tuning the quality of the ambient than overpowering it. And the result is both subtle and beautiful.
As for your Labor Day weekend, rest assured it is probably more relaxing than Annie's. She has a $24,000,000.00 debt payment due Tuesday. I'd roll that baby forward to a new Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards card and fly free for-EVER.
[UPDATE: Oops. Annie's weekend just got worse...]
(Thanks to Sean for the tip.)
