Sweatpants Media on Commercial Video Production (X180-082)

Last week we had ASC cinematographer Bruce Logan talking about the work he did for Zacuto’s “Revenge of the Great Camera Shootout 2012.” Today we have the two filmmakers who were in charge of the GH2 team (the infamous “Camera B.”) They are Colt Seaman and Jonny Zeller of Sweatpants Media. These young guns give us some awesome info on how they landed huge commercial gigs like Red Bull, Panasonic and Toyota. Plus they give us their take on all the drama on the internet surrounding the work they did for Zacuto’s shootout.

This show is co-produced by Dan Rollins of LiveWire Films.

  1. Wrong. The GH2 was not chosen as the best looking. What was shown by the (quite strange ) Zacuto test was how much re-lighting and post was required to get an acceptable image from it. Nobody would seriously use it as a production tool if they had the choice.

    1. I don’t think anyone is or was saying the GH2 is the best camera, or the camera you should choose to shoot a production. But, In part 2 of Zacuto’s shootout, the impression I got was that the GH2 was picked by many people as their favorite. Regardless of what it took to get there. On the NoFilmSchool poll, Cam B (which was revealed as the GH2) was the overwhelming among the readers who actually picked a favorite (“No Favorite” was the actual first place winner in that poll). Yes, it is revealed what a lot of fill light is required, and of course that may affect your choice to use it or not (among a bunch of other things). But, that doesn’t change the reaction people had to the imagery when they first saw it.
