Honda Lead TV commercial.

Honda commercial for Vietnam. Original commercial was shot a year ago (the pastel colour look). Client wanted to add a new model to the commercial without having to shoot a whole new spot. The new model has a dark colour scheme.

We had one day of pre-light but I couldn't look at the bike as it was not yet released and Honda was very guarded about their product. They didn't bring the bike to set until shoot day itself. Director wanted moving lights so I used a combination of actually moving lights as well as rotating a polarizer to create a moving light effect on the bike itself.

Shot in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam on Arri Alexa Mini with Master Prime lenses.
