The Duke, the hangar and the hangover

We are working on this promotional video production for a bike and bike accessory company, Custom Creationz in Krugersdorp, Gauteng. Not a high video production budget, but nevertheless challenging.

In this particular instance, the challenge is to film the luminous, electrical paint job on the bike. Custom Creationz added it as a subtle touch, by just enhancing the factory colors of of the Duke, with a slight glow. The glow is very slight, about 1/2 a stop change in brightness. To see the effect It has to be filmed in darkness. The problem is that the bike is black, so it is difficult to see the shape of the bike in the dark, you only see the luminous paint.

We're working on a solution, and after our first experiment, at the picturesque Jack Taylor airfield in Krugersdorp I walked around and took some snaps and visited the pub under the auspices of Corrie, who runs an aircraft service business on the premises. The pictures tell the story...
