In November 2017, we got in touch with an historian that needed a video for a very specific purpose: showcase the country’s most famous public park, and project it on the National Gallery of Art, on an entire wall, in an exhibition celebrating the creation of the park. No easy feat, and an incredible honor.
The park itself was designed by the legendary Brazilian architect Roberto Burle Marx, along with John Stoddart, Fernando Tabora and Leandro Aristigueta. Their mission was to showcase the country’s flora and fauna in an enclosed space, open to the public to enjoy.
The initial step was to assemble a team of professionals, with two producers, a director, three cameras and a drone operator. The first day we arrived at the park at 5:00 am so we could capture the sunrise from the park, and record it the drone, plus various scenes with the other cameras. We placed a camera on a boat to record a timelapse of the hull with the Avila mountain on the background, with the sunrise shining on it’s crevices.
