Our brief from Foodpanda was to create a brand video and a set of images or key visuals. The catch? The shoot was to be conducted locally (in Singapore) and our client was based in Bangkok. We needed to have them see all camera outputs - both from our Red Komodo as well as the CaptureOne photography session. Challenge accepted.What hardware/software do you need?The list was pretty simple:- [ ] A capture card device. We used the Blackmagic Design - Ultra Mini Studio. This carried the signal from the camera’s SDI output to the laptop.- [ ] A laptop running a Google Meet session. Running OBS is very useful but not essential.- [ ] A power supply for the laptop. We used a portable battery system - bulky, but it lasted us the whole day.- [ ] An internet dongle. The “meeting” lasted all day so we probably used a fair bit of data.- [ ] What’s a good process to get clients easily involved with the shoot?We had one dedicated person (a 2nd CA) managing the call - which includes the connections from the camera, internet dongle etc. The client had their project managers, art directors, marketing officers etc on the call. We had our key team members join the call with their Mic’s muted. We used a regular Apple Airpod Pro to listen in for client comments on the fly via the Google Meeting. This allowed us to carry out the shoot as if the client was present on set.We would pause the call, where people went on mute, between shots. We found our rhythm with this fairly quickly into the shoot.We could call playbacks as we normally would and feedback was received pretty easily.One of our scenes involved the camera crew and director in a chase van filming a car. Our system worked exceptionally well considering the van was moving through the city and we were “broadcasting” our camera output to Bangkok.Photography Shoot Live SharingThis is where the system was put to test. We decided that the client should both see the live view from the camera as well as the finished photos as large thumbnails. And we wanted to use one laptop for it all - - [ ] Tethered shooting (using CaptureOne)- [ ] Sending a “live” view of the scene (we were able to see the talent pose in real time together)- [ ] Sharing the output window.How?We had one of the monitors (an iPad connected wirelessly) show the live view. This was useful to show talent where they should have been standing as well as to show the client quick options if they wanted to see variations of the poses.On OBS, we set the second monitor to a “screen capture” and that output was sent out as a “virtual camera”.On the google call, we shared screen (showing the output folder) as well as had a camera on - showing the live view.The MacBook book pro M1 took all of this pretty well.
