“Out In The Street” Footage Call out.

23 December, 2010 (21:17) | Animation

Sixty40 is doing another clip for mark pritchard (aka the jedi knights, harmonic 313 and now Africa Hitek).
Here’s the last one we did http://www.sixty40.com/battlestar/
This one, called “Out in the street” is the tale of urban helper robots running out of time and choosing the easy way out and achieving 8 bit rapture.
Basically, we’re asking people we know around the world to send us footage of streets into which we can comp dancing robots. The robots are all joyously dancing along the street while their expiry time approaches, wherein they jump out into the traffic and get killed.
We’re looking for a variety of urban backdrops to animate the robots onto.
Would you have the opportunity of taking some footage on something like a canon 5d ((or whatever, something with a lens, even a iphone would work) of city streets.
Find a cool street with a sidewalk next to a street and grab a few shots. They’re just plates onto which we’ll put wicked robots, so try for no people.
  1. By you walking down the street (as smooth as possible) – 20 seconds
  2. Low Angle of cars going past, looking into the traffic – 20 seconds
  3. Side on of traffic.
  4. Some cool looking skyline shots
We just need a few seconds for the edit. Night time or day. Camera can be wobbly.
Once you’ve got it, just email us the files via wetransfer.com to mark.simpson@sixty40.com
