Chevrolet - Manchester United Autographed Trax

Adam De Silva - Friday, January 10, 2014

Recent commission for Chevrolet

The brief was to shoot a set of images of Man Utd players with a one of a kind ‘Trax’ SUV, liveried with a motif bonnet that was signed by the entire Barclays Premier League winning team of 2012/13. The shots were to promote a series of Ebay auctions hosted by the brand, in which all the profits raised from the various auctions of signed goods were donated to The Manchester United Foundation.

The shoot took place at Old Trafford itself, which being a supporter of the club since I was a young lad was pretty special for me.

It was a fun shoot technically as we only had the players for 10 minutes & that slot had to be split between both my crew and the film crew that shot the online video content.

In order to achieve the end result we had to have our set up completely nailed and marked out as we were jumping in to shoot second.  This meant, first positioning the kit and getting sign off from the client & then removing it to allow the film crew to get the shots they needed. Eventually when our moment came, we had to move quickly to reposition the lighting & get the whole set up back in place to nail the shots.

Luckily I had an awesome crew that helped out and were all over it. Big shout out to Phill Bradley who was all over the lighting crew management and keeping things running smoothly, top lad and a brill assistant.

Super pleased with how the shots turned out, and they certainly got a lot of coverage, so all in all a success me thinks.
