With the state-of-the-art studios owned by Bob Bekian, and the director expertise of Claudio Zagarini in Italy, the two co-produced the video from both sides of the globe in real time. “This was really an international collaboration,” noted Bekian. “We had Claudio skype-directing from Europe, and our team at Loyal Studios with JayKay performing the content.” This method of directing became favorable for long distance review after Peter Jackson utilized it to direct the musical score of the third Lord of the Rings movie on location in New Zealand. “Our Director of Photography was Jesse Brunt, who is a master at making Digital HD footage look like film” Bekian added.
The shoot utilized a combination of high definition cameras along with Kino Flo lighting systems on a greenscreen to produce the raw content. The final cut was produced in Italy as the files traveled digitally across the internet. Any changes that needed to be made could be set into motion, shot, and sent back to Italy for review. “We specialize in using technology to produce high quality content while keeping costs under control” Bekian noted.
