In the month of December, our clients reached out to us to create Christmas based creative videos. The most recent work we did was with a new start-up hotel, 181, in Sai Wan, to produce a video promoting their new Christmas dinner package deal. The video captures beautiful cinematic footage of a range of foods and ingredients offered, celebrating the ‘coming together’ of the Christmas meal.
This shoot took around a day. We worked with our local DOP, Quinton Wong, to elegantly capture moments from the preparation of the food with a range of cinematic shots that showcase different ingredients being cooked, sliced, and garnished. As a Christmas themed video, we envision color, texture, and layer. In the scene where the finished dishes are plated beautifully and neatly arranged on a grand table, we believe we achieved presenting that in an elegant way through the use of a special lens, the macroscopic lens. The video uses a mix of film techniques, with the way we use camera lighting, shot composition, and camera movement. Each shot has its unique style.
Post-production was a bit of a challenge, making sure to have a good eye with the way it is edited and the flow of the video took a lot of time, patience, and hard work. Our team at Lime* worked really close with the 181 hotel branding team to ensure that we meet their expectations of high-quality production whilst importantly representing the 181 Hotel brand but making sure to spread the message of Christmas.
