L'Or Barista

We operated the BOLT high-speed motion control rig for this commercial, in which coloured fluid effects were shot underwater with a periscope lens. The liquids interacting with a scaled dummy model of the coffee machine - to be combined in post production - were shot high-speed to create the silky effect. Getting the timing right in as few takes as possible was the big challenge on the shoot, as the water tank had to be completely emptied and cleaned between each take. BOLT's precision and the experience of the sfx and motion control crew involved was key in meeting this challenge. The director was Stef Viaene and the DoP was Jean Poisson.
