High light geeks Emmanuel Pampuri in the place again I am in an incredible place I am in Namibia An incredible country , in the middle of nowhere Only stones grows here Thanks to Honda, I take you with me Behind the scenes of an atypical shooting I was lucky to join the Band Originale crew During the production of 2 different advertising For the 2 new Africa Twins 2020 motorcycles It’s a very atypical movie And maybe the most ambitious content
I ever produced for my YouTube Channel 2 weeks of an exceptional adventure
I’m sharing with you It’s an hybrid movie A bit of Vlog, a touch of documentary
And, a bit of behind the scenes … A 3200 KM long expedition Travelling in incredible landscapes Over size adventure There is incredible big toys With an incredible team ! Let’s go ahead ! He is so hot now ! My job is to trying to brig together a team To play together a lot ! Creating beautiful things Sometimes I drive more than others But we are very open The way to direct the movie is open Everybody can bring ideas This is very cool We have to follow a guideline But at the end we try to have a team Where there is some fun It must be fun ! That gives us the opportunity to be creative That’s my job ! So you bring a kids team to play together ? A kid can only bring a team of kids To make the fool together It’s basics ! It’s basics ! They told me your speciality is to make moonwalk in Namibia On the track ? No, absolutely not ! you talked about Gilles ! Can you frame him ? As I told you it wasn’t me, it was Gilles ! As you can see we have this fixed one And this one is moving forward Like frame edge, with the dust It works ! This is the giraffe shot There is a giraffe sign Sometimes it happens here We didn’t saw any one But you could have a giraffe crossing the road
I hope to see one ! But it’s not the case Little shot with the motorcycle starting This motorcycle is the touring one And our rider is the one who explore and travel Then he stop And then he just watch the landscape With the little giraffe sign We use the crane We also use the drone starting over there There is different motorcycles ? There is different motos exactly The one we shot during the first days Is more off road oriented We shot it in the dunes In more complicated environment More technical With a riding style more “racer” More extrem This one is more touring oriented build to go far away It’s when you take your motorbike to discover landscapes During miles and miles That’s what we try to show in this shot Now they are sweeping the sand To erase footprints Tristan is going to shoot his first photo He just finished to setup his lighting Today we are shooting statics photos We found a nice background We will try to use it this location maximum Because there is la lot of logistical constraints with motorikes After getting the moto out of the truck They need about 20 to 30 minutes to be ready And the same time when we finish to get back into the truck It means that, every location where we stop We must maximize the number of photos we can shoot On the location before storing the bike back in the truck We will start with this one, 3 different axis with the black motorbike Then we will switching to the other bike While the technical assistance will set up the accessories Then we will shoot it again little further This location was used for “Mad Max Furry Road” shooting There is a part of our technical crew Our focus puller who where working on the Mad Max shooting There was no rain since a long time But for us, it’s raining ! Special attention ! Roscoe told us during 6 month of Mad Max shooting There was no rain ! It’s only for us ! So we wait now To go back for shooting To shoot nice pictures in the dunes In a desert Without rain ! If it’s possible ?! I do a little of everything Liloo multipass Right now I work as a drone pilot On this shooting But I am also Director of Photography I manage batteries with Tannan also hard drives, cards and media We do everything, BO it’s a family There is no hierarchy, we are all up or down On the side, on the left on the right We try to do our best all the time to make it works To produce the best footage Without caring of ego and to know who is the director, who is the DOP … We are all together to make nice job ! In a very good mood ! It’s 7h o’clock in the morning Sun will raise up soon I just want to tell you about how it works a day here during this shooting A typical day here Explaining this shooting a little bit We wake up early every days Because the best moment for shooting You must know are surrise / dawn And the sunset ! Famous golden hour in the evening And famous blue hour in the morning We are driving incredible long distances We are in a very exotic country Very large spaces I was very seduced and struck by the great outdoors In the national West parks in the USA But here, Namibia … Very wide Wilde outdoors I feel very small here ! Disconnected from the rest of the world A lot of people told me to be careful When I said I will go to Namibia on a shooting They said “you are crazy” This is dangerous There is some savage animals There is bad people They will kill you ! I never felt as good and safe as here in this country ! I am stunned by this country About 10 vehicles, 26 people .. Travelling, driving hundreds of kilometers Going from a location to another Every night we have a team who build us a base camp Days after days we prefer to sleep under the stars My name is Erick Courly I’m French but I live in South Africa since 20 years And I manage logistics for special travel with motorbikes or 4×4 And also logistics for the shooting Like the one we are making now For TV shows, for Car or Motorcycles manufacturers And things like that Gab, do you know where is the Ronin controller ? We are now in a place where there was a Diamond mine The mine is now empty So houses are empty too, peoples leaves The sand takes back it’s rights Sand is eating houses time after time It creates crazy apocalyptic locations You must stop here if you visit Namibia ! This is incredible ! This is a crazy incredible experience for me 15 days of total change of scenery An incredible team A Wonderfull atmosphere Passionate people who create nice pictures together A beautiful life experience I don’t know about you but for me, the first time When I saw the camera shaking on the crane I thought “wow, it’s gonna fall” ! There is a big trouble ! But no, everything is under control ! It’s not possible ! Do you have your driving licence ? Yes ! This is a very good question ! One more time we are in the middle of nowhere … We found railway … There is maybe one train a day here I’m not sure … A CGI train … that’s all ! never any train came here We jus put the rails yesterday for the shooting ! That’s why it looks so new ! Normal we will put a train in CGI In the background with the moto Thats why it stops You will draw it with Sketchup ? Of course with Sketchup ! Shut up, he is coming !
