BEHIND THE SCENES
WARNING: SPOILERS - PRODUCTION BLOG
The 9th of january 2014, Gold Digger premiered. The audience could enjoy a 2k version of the short film.
How does one find the antique pendants that your script calls for? Luckily for us, the local antique dealer had a lot of old jewels to pick from, and together we designed this pendant.
In order to get the adventure forrest mood, there was a lot of color grading involved. Especially the leaves usually got a hue twist, to catch the mood.
Lady on the table
To illustrate Michael and Isabel's earlier relationship, we dragged the two actors to a nearby restaurant for a short photo shoot. Aren't they great together?
Originally the story was written for a cabin in the woods. It turns out that it was difficult to find a satisfying cabin, on top of a hill in the middle of the woods, in denmark.
Inspired by african desert tents, we instead raised a tent from the ground.
Again, coffee was helpful for making stuff look old.
In this board, we secretly put the meaning of the ancient pendants.
- Can you dig it?
A three man crew and our lead actor packed together with equipment, in a mini. Need say more?
Panorama @ 2 pm
Prepping the scene for the shoot, we lit the room mainly from outside to get a natural textured lighting that would work for the entire scene. #Mathias Tegtmeier
In order to create the many old documents and scrolls our archeologist Michael had brought home from his adventures across the world, we had to get our hands dirty. It turns out that the smell of coffee is surprisingly hard to wash off your hands.
A cone of light
Our previsualization called for a cone of light from a strong flashlight. If yours does too, beware that these babies suck the life out of all batteries. Fast.
Cutting edge technology
Tied with a prop rope in the back of the car, new possibilities arise. The shot turned out just as we had hoped.
To get the proper adventure mood for the film, we ventured across Denmark in search for a majestic location. When we came across møns klint, where was no doubt. It was the perfect location!
After 4 great days of shooting, we wrapped the movie @ møns klint.
Another wrap was quite difficult: wrapping our villains in rope - three man carried the massive rope over 100 times around the tree. More troublesome than wrapping them up, was releasing them after shooting.
