Nashville Crew Shoots for Merck Pharmaceuticals

Featured image


It’s not everyday you get to work for one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies.   Merck is in the process of implementing some new employee “well-being” policies.  They needed a video shoot outlining those policies and luckily they turned to us.

Before arriving at their corporate headquarters in Whitehouse Station, NJ, I made a stop in Charlotte to pick up my audio guy.  We were supposed to film this video outside but unfortunately the weather was terrible.  Plan B was to shoot this in a long corridor.  The hallway was a good back up.  It had lots of windows,  texture, and great depth.

I was shooting on the Panasonic HDX 900.  I lit my subject with HMI’s to match what sunlight was coming in.  I used my 1K and 600watt open face to add some texture and color.    We were only shooting one interview so the day went pretty fast.  Before I knew it New Jersey was in my rear view mirror.

Look mom I can apply makeup!
