About This Project

Blacks of Kinsale

Armed with a crate of Black IPA, we set up a studio to shoot this advert. A White balance of 5600k and a mix of 3 daylights and 2 tungsten, gave us the warmth & contrast we were looking for in the lighting.

We mixed up the shots between 60fps 4K and 150fps 1080. The 4k allowed us to keyframe in some movements in post.

Looking at the brand, as well as the flavour description of Coffee & dark chocolate, we went for a grade that brought out the brown tones.
