SAVE THE CHILDREN - ARSENAL FC
This comedy online promo for Save the Children's Christmas jumper, was in partnership with Arsenal FC and featured their manager and key players. The video sees Arsene Wenger coaching his players on how to knit the Christmas jumper, where some are struggling more than others.
The key to this shoot was speed, due to it being shot during an Arsenal media day and only having a 10 minute slot with Arsene and the players at different times. Colin had to use the available flood lights in the training ground, so used large flags to add shadows and modelling. Shot on an FS7, Colin created a custom LUT based on the ARRI Film Style for the Alexa, which also corrected for the colour of the flood lights. This meant no grading was required as the LUT could be applied straight to the footage in the edit to get the finished images.
