The shoot took place at Park Royal Studio’s, London. Graham was assisted by the wonderful Chris Rands and Natasha Lees who helped create complex lighting setups under Grahams direction. Using a combination of direct and reflected lighting to create realistic daylight and night time moods within the studio environment.

Working with the Blue Hive team again was a real pleasure. Their professionalism, motivation and sense of humour made the shoot a lot of fun and very productive.

Bentley GT Speed – Launch Film 2013

We can now reveal our film for the new Bentley Continental GT Speed. Launched at the Paris Motor Show September 2012

Bentley’s new Continental GT Speed coupé is capable of fast lap times, but it’s a real-world supercar, not a track special. Distinctive it may be, but it’s also the latest in a long line of devastatingly fast, smooth and rewarding Bentley grand tourers.

mustard-berlin were commissioned to produce and direct the launch film for the new 2012 Bentley GT Speed. Filming took place in Slovenia and Croatia. The combined film and photo shoot was Directed & produced by mustard-berlin (Martin Bennett & Stephen French). Filmed with the Arri Alexa, Phantom and the Canon 5D MkIII & MKII.

Bentley Film and photo shoot: Croatia

mustard-berlin Martin Bennett & Stephen French have just directed and produced another film and photo production for Bentley Motors with agency Connect
(AD Richard Parsons / PM Melanie Tainty)

The combined film and photography shoot took place in Croatia. We shot in beautiful mountain and coastal locations in the Dalmatian region of Croatia.

Photographer Graham Thorp was commissioned, once again to shoot the stills, assisted by Chris Rands. Graham shot on the  Hasselblad H2 with a Phase One P65 back and a range of Hasselblad lenses. The brief called for dynamic driving shots in different landscape environments. To create the element of speed in the dynamic driving images we worked with a Move & Shoot rig, superbly rigged by David Turnley.

The film shoot was only one day so we had a lot to cram in. We shot a mixture of car to car, grip shots, slider and sticks shots. As we needed to be fast and create a lot of material we shot on 2 small footprint cameras:  Canon 5D MKIII & Canon 5D MKII using Canon L prime lenses, operated by Martin & Stephen. These gave us the flexibility to shoot fast and get shots not possible with larger camera setups.

Our superb precision drivers for the duration of the shoot were Tiffany Chittenden & Rob Gray. The local crew were absolutely amazing and worked tirelessly on long shoot days. The stop and go and security team made the closing of roads and the locking down of locations happen without hitch or delay. All of this was co-ordinated by Local Producer Dragan Josipovic “Joss” and our superb Location Manager Žarko Ivković. Both of whom are extremely experienced and made sure that the shoot ran smoothly. I think we now hold the record for the longest roadblock in Croatia!!!

We now move into post-production on both the film and stills. As usual we cant reveal the model of the car at this stage, but as soon as the images & film go live we’ll upload them, so please watch this space…

If you love to drive far and fast, if the exhilaration of a 625PS, 800Nm engine and eight-speed close-ratio transmission makes your heart race, this is your car.

We can now reveal that mustard-berlin produced the recent photographic shoot for the New Continental GT Speed with photographer Graham Thorp, agency Connect, for Bentley Motors. Shot over 14 days on location in Austria and Slovenia. The photo shoot with Graham was part of a larger film and PR photography shoot that also took in locations in Croatia.
