LAUNCHED: The Athletes

Get yourself comfortable, it’s time for the world wide premiere of FremantleMedia‘s new format: The Athletes! SVT is the first channel in the world that will broadcast this newborn format, and I’m happy to be a part of it all! The producers wanted to give the show an extra injection of production value so they hired my and my beloved Sony F55 for 25 days where my job was to:

* Be the DoP of the title sequence (produced and directed by my friends from Naive)
* Shoot all the slow motion footage in the arena (athletes running and jumping etc)

The creative ambitions were high and the result ended up pretty spectacular for being a television format. Every time you see slow motion footage (filmed in 240fps with the Sony RAW Recorder) from the arena, you know that mr PANGKLANG! was the dude behind it.
