American Express Commercial now online

The american express commercial with Jerry Senfield and Superman is now online. It has one full episode and a cool behind the scenes feature. I always get juiced when I see an XL1 rigged up like a pro.

Our own Charles Papert did the camera work with an XL1s on those pieces. (You can see him in a few of the behind-the-scenes feature shots.)

Watch here for more material on this soon.

Doesn't Charles also play the guy in the blue tights and red cape? The resemblence is kind of striking...

VERRRRY Funny

Boy would I love to see Seinfeld come back on the tube. Get the whole gang back together. It's interesting to watch and compare the first episodes to the last episodes and see how more developed the characters have become. OH, and yes, the XL1s footage was amazing in this commercial. Don't say XL1s to Bravo, though. It's like a naughty word.

That's classic!

However it has that typical red-shift that the XL1s always has.

I'm guessing with the client, budget, quality of the DP and post production facilities, that this was color corrected beyond anything you'd see as an inherent color shift.

If I'm not mistaken, that's a mini35 attached to the front of the XL1.

Yes, it is. Charles had a very lengthy post about this a few months back. We were all looking forward to seeing it.
