UV x La Prairie

Limelight where back at UV; Paul Paireit’s multi sensory dining experience. We were tasked with covering La Prairie’s experience at his fine dining establishment. The job required both photography and a video.

The team started at Mr and Mrs Bund Paul’s Bund side restaurant hours before La Prairie would meet for their drinks reception. Here a general preparations and setting shots where taken at the scenic bund side restaurant. La Prairie arrived and after a drinks reception where escorted to the bus that would ferry them to the super secret location of Ultra Violet.

Upon arrival the La Prairie guests where ushered into the building where they had drinks at the UV bar before being escorted into the dinning hall. From here on in the team had to cover 15 courses the guests would enjoy while working around the low light conditions and fast paced kitchen atmosphere that chef Paul Pairet insisted we not interfere with.

The team had to be subtle in filming the guests and efficient yet non-obstructive when filming the kitchen. With lots of impressive dishes and their glamorous presentation the team had a lot to film.

Within the dinning hall the show was truly a spectacle with visual effects on the table and walls the use of dry ice, music, the waiters and chefs interactions the show gave us a lot to capture. The challenges of filming came in the form of low light conditions that we could not interfere with and a need not to be notice and ruin the dining experience.

The Limelight teams familiarity with the restaurant and its workings meant we knew where to be and what to cover and when. By the end of the night we had covered the evening and could provide La Prairie with photos of the event and a video. 

我们又再一次回到我们熟悉的地点 – UV餐厅。 我们这次的拍摄客户是-La Prairie的餐会。这次是摄像摄影的结合拍摄。

我们团队提前到达外滩18号的Mr and Mrs Bund。在等待酒会开始之前,我们拍摄一些外滩的片段,作为我们剪辑的素材。当客人全部到齐之后,他们有专车护送他们的贵宾至上海最神秘的餐厅-Ultra Violet

他们抵达UV之后,他们会先穿过UV的酒吧,然后在进入到用餐大厅里面。之后我们得在十分昏暗的条件下,拍摄15道菜,加上主厨也不允许我们打扰到客人们用餐,我们只能在上菜的时候进行拍摄。

我们在拍摄客人的时候得十分的留心,在有限的时间,捕捉他们的表情。当我们在厨房拍摄时,也得十分小心,不能妨碍到工作人员做事。每一道菜都是主厨的心血,每一个都像是精美的艺术品,我们的团队从头都没有停过,不想错过任何一个镜头。

餐厅里餐桌和墙上的投影打造了一番视觉盛宴,食物里的干冰,音乐,还有服务员和厨师的互动给了我们很多拍摄素材。摄制的挑战来自昏暗的光线以及保持低调不能打扰到用餐过程。

我们长期的跟UV合作,我们对于他们的流程十分熟悉。我们知道那边会是最完美的拍摄地点,什么东西我们是必须得拍摄,和什么时候是最好的拍摄时间点。又一场完美的盛宴画下句点,我们的团队也是满载而归。请欣赏我们这一次的影片。
