We’ve had some great opportunities to showcase FLIR technology in media, and the past year has seen some great uses in some big movies and television programs. The latest season of “Homeland,” “Rampage,” and “Sicario 2: Day of the Soldado,” all featured some excellent sequences using FLIR cameras. Sicario 2 involved integrating the camera into the picture helicopter – the gear was used both as an on-screen prop, but also to capture imagery from that was featured prominently in the opening scene of the film. Check out that scene above as well as the behind-the-scenes feature we were able to share on the FLIR YouTube channel.
My latest project for FLIR Systems was this video for the introduction of a new line of test & measurement equipment released by the company. The video has a completely different look then anything I’ve created for the company. The motion graphics implemented Trapcode Mir, Light Factory, Form, as well as Video Copilots Optical Flares all overlayed on some long exposure photography I’d done. I also overlayed film grain over the whole piece as a final polish that adds to its organic sci-fi look.
I’ve been dying to cut together a piece using one of DJ Vice‘s remix tracks, “Down by Life” by the artist Elliphant. I’ve always love cutting to music, and I had some time-lapses and other b-roll sitting around. So I cut it together, enjoy!
