The TVC 'Small but Powerful' explores the simplicity of setting up the RODE Videomicro with a dslr camera. It is where most filmmakers start out. A camera and microphone. Small, simple stuff.

But we wanted to display how cinematic simplicity can be...

With only 17 hours left to the end of MYRODEREEL2018, Manav and Adrian decided to quickly participate by making a commercial.

We kept lighting simple with coloured LEDs and we used fast lenses to create very cinematic images. The main camera we used was the Blackmagic Ursa mini 4.6k. We quickly concepted an idea and we began.

We decided to shoot the commercial based on setting up the rode videomicro with a dslr. A small but powerful microphone.

After getting all the shots we needed, we chose a song from Artlist.io and based the edit around the music. We continued by recording foley with the rode videomicro to create a new dimension to the commercial.

We finished it off with a final colour grade and sound mix.

We were very happy with the results and we are now planning for next years MYRODEREEL 2019.
