This Hunter Douglas commissioned video was created as a sales inspiration promo or a window blind product called Duette which is manufactured by Hunter Douglas. We see solo classical musicians performing their sectionals of Mendelssohn Symphony No. 4, “Italian”. As they fade away, the end result shows the symphony coming into view, and how all the parts come together to make up the whole.
Obvious challenge was getting the tempo right as each musician was playing solo, so it helped to have a conductor present off-screen.
Shooting with the Canon XF 100 provided the depth of field and rich empty blackness that allowed for nice dissolves in the final edit.
