On January 23rd’s sunny Sunday, Kontent Films and
Underground Advertising gathered in Dolores Park – cast, crew, partners and all – to shoot with the slow motion Phantom Gold Camera recording an incredible 500 frames per second. Many onlookers kept us company while the cast repeated their actions for three second takes – recreating multiple scenarios one would usually see at a San Francisco park on a gorgeous day. All done with the ultimate goal of creating a trailer to premiere at CAAM’s 29th San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival. The thirteen 3 second takes were narrowed down to one (Take 7) and went through the post-production process with the excellent folks at Elastic Creative. With graphics and 3-D effects added, the piece was finalized last Thursday February 10th. Can’t wait to watch it on the big screen!
We hope you attend the festival to view what promises to be a great line up of films. The SFIAAFF is one of the crown jewels of the San Francisco film scene, but really we know you’ll be going to watch the slow motion Phantom Gold Camera in action. The film festival runs between March 10-20, 2011 at San Francisco, Berkeley and San Jose venues. For more information on the screenings, please visit CAAMEDIA.ORG.
Thank you to everyone who participated in making this production come to life.
