La SuperMovida

So, I got a call from Nilver Huarac and Jeanet some days ago. It came out of the blue as I haven't heard from them since four years ago when we worked together on her TV show.

Since I've been away most of 2007 I didn't get to pay attention to local TV and that she was back since september.

We had a meeting and they wanted me to work with them to improve the show. I was reluctant at first as the prior experience working for Panamericana TV (where they air from) was rocky and they still owe me some cash (Panamericana is known for not paying clients and employees) but they were handling the show independently so that was good to hear. I was introduced to the producers of each sequence so we could share ways to make things better. It was a bit odd to decide as I'm flying back n forth and didnt want to attach myself to it. Ive done TV before and it's very frenzy, very demanding in time and mind.

The ratings were going down and they wanted to polish up their TV show with a new look and content. I suggested first to change their show Intro as it would be the inmediate thing people would see before the show began....so off we did, made a script idea, shot it yesterday and this is the result. This time it was done using the Canon XL-1 with four lenses: the 16x, a Tokina AF 19-35mm f/4, a Canon 13x and a Canon EF 35mm f/2 Prime Lens.

After editing I applied our Digital Cinematic Process-PCD to make it look like film but didn't use the 3:2 pulldown cadence as I wanted to keep it more 60i. This time just took a break on that move.

A behind-the-scenes was made also. I will put it in the next post.
Take a look at the final intro below.
