The California List
California Wines approached us to create a film celebrating The California List, a prestigious award for the best-in-class wines produced in the California Wine region.
A panel of experts including Jancis Robinson MW, Mark Andrew MW, Sarah Knowles MW, Ronan Sayburn MS and Stephen Brook whittled the list from 200 potential producers down to just 51.
The final edit needed to include interview-based pieces to camera, allowing the wine critics to expand on the process of judging wines and why each producer was selected for inclusion.
The film was shown live at the launch event to commemorate the list, as well as being sent out to a variety of publications to be included in industry news roundups.
Kit, Set up & Production
We filmed at Holborn Studios, shooting on the RED Raptor at 8K, allowing us flexiblility in a 4K edit. We used the camera on a slider and placed the wine bottles on a motorised turntable, adding movement to everything we captured.
For the intro and outro shots, we used the Laowa probe lens to get a really interesting perspective of the wine collection as the camera moved through them.
In addition to the studio shoot, we went to a workshop to capture the process of the List posters being printed. We also planned to film an interview with the designer but he was based in Columbia at the time, so filming this ourselves wasn’t feasible. So, we put together a shoot brief for a local Columbian film to pick up the interview and transfer the footage to us via Dropbox once it was completed.
I actually got shivers watching the video… you both have completely nailed it.
