Houston, TX (PRWEB) April 13, 2006
Houston based Blue Star Video Productions completed principle cinematography Friday March 31st, 2006 for the Bravo Group's Miller Lite Beer Spanish language documentary. Conceptualized as a "window" into the real life of Hispanics and Latinos, care was taken by Blue Star VP to not interfere or direct any of the subjects of the shoot and to capture real world "day in the life of" various Spanish speaking immigrant income and education levels. The project was shot in 16:9 widescreen and is scheduled to be broadcast in Mexico as well as other Central and South American countries.
Blue Star VP's challenge was to forgo the expected production amenities of a lighting and sound crew in favor of camera mounted devices to achieve the look of "your friends home camera" that the Bravo Group wanted. Blue Star VP shot more than 15 hours of footage during the three-day production in and around the city of Houston, Texas and included such locations as private homes and apartments, nightclubs, convenience stores, downtown Houston and local neighborhood exteriors. Scene selection included a neighborhood BBQ featuring Miller Lite beer in the driveway of a homeowner, boys night out to play pool at a local nightclub featuring ice cold buckets of Miller Lite beer, and a private party with catered food, DJ, and Miller Lite beer. All participants spoke Spanish exclusively and some even described personal accounts of their culture and experiences to the cameras including why they prefer Miller Lite to other beers.
Blue Star VP used FedEx to overnight the dailies to the New York office of the Bravo Group after the completion of each shooting day. The president of Blue Star VP, Tom Sessions, brought in veteran marketing professional and television producer Nathan Cliett from the EdgeMedia Group to assist and consult on the complexities of shooting a realty based documentary.
