Behind The Lens - Minneapolis, MN “Adidas”

We are proud to release the latest episode of our Behind the Lens series, "Adidas - Minneapolis, Minnesota".  This 3rd installment offers a detailed look at the making of the spec. / test project, "Adidas: Head to Head."  The project showcases a literal “head to head” match-up of two rising stars in the world of table-tennis.

Collaboration has never been more of a key element in the creative industry.  Working on this production, our most elaborate test shoot to date, we tapped some of Minneapolis’ most talented production partners for a fast-paced evening of action sports capture.  This Behind the Len’s episode offers a glimpse into life on set shooting and producing visuals, as well as the key developments in post-production through editing, music and sound design. 

A common reaction to our Behind The Lens videos is that people don't realize just how much support and behind the scenes manpower goes into creating a project on this scale.

The episode was shot and edited by Nathaniel Schmidt, view the full list of cast and crew below and keep an eye out for some of them in the video.
