Gilgamesh – Indy Movie Poster photoshoot

Start with your basic indy film extravaganza. Add a dose of post apocalyptic mayhem, some crazy characters, a gas mask or two. Mix well and pour into Gilgamesh, the movie poster!

The Boston Film Family’s Gilgamesh poster photo illustration is a study in layers – 42 to be exact – starting with a photoshoot of a surplus navy gas mask we had laying around the studio (don’t ask, but it involved the chili incident).

Are you making an independent film? Have you been thinking about your marketing images?

Give us a call. 617-910-9314.

From character portraits to three sheet poster executions, we would love to talk with you about your project goals!

 

The BioTech Vision:

One of the biggest challenges for commercial photographers is that we need to try to climb inside our clients’ heads and look at the company through their eyes. Each company has its own specialties and features.

One of the ways that you can help us, and get better results during your photoshoot, is to put together a vision board.

Lots of my clients will create one on Pinterest (Labs, headshots) that they can share with me, so that I understand the mood and feel of the photography that they are looking to achieve.

Once we get a feel for what needs to be accomplished and how you want the results to look, the next step is for us to do a location scout. That is, we visit your location and start really refining the shot list and schedule for the shoot day.

This involves taking the shot concepts and the mood board and seeing where we can set up to create those images. Often times, the architecture of the lab has unique spaces that can be good for creating that unique look.

We also look at what kind of props and people we will need and how to best light the image. We can take into account any scheduling challenges that may come up and any “set dressing” that may need to take place. This could include organizing a corner of the lab, removal of sticky notes, getting lab coats laundered, and making sure the correct PPE is available for the shoot.

Some times, it is not possible for us to do the location scout ourselves (distance, schedule, etc). In that case, we have a couple of choices: the next best bet is to have someone from the company shoot scouting pictures for us.

The Photography Schedule:

Once the location scout is complete, we will work up a schedule for the actual shoot date that will include the approximate times for each location, what team members will need to be there and any other notes, such as props etc.

On the day of photography, everyone will know where they need to be and when they need to be there. All of the props and wardrobe are ready to be prepped and we will have all of the equipment that we will need to accomplish your photography ready to rock.

Everyone’s time will be used efficiently and all that is left to do is show up and start creating great images!
