We had over 100 crew on set, with take over’s in central London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital, Blackfriars station and Hammersmith Bridge. Nodachi looked after all aspects of production in London, from Visa’s, stay and transportation for the 45 crew that came over from India, to crewing up, unit bases and locations in London.

It stars Zaira Wasim, Priyanka Chopra, and Farhan Akhtar, and is based on motivational speaker Aisha Chaudhary who was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis.[1]

NODACHI SHOOTS UNITED POLARIS CAMPAIGN

Last month, Nodachi worked with the innovative design agency, PriestmanGoode for their latest animation for the launch of United Polaris, the new business class experience for United Airlines. Working alongside the visualisation team at PriestmanGoode, Nodachi helped to recreate the 3D aircraft cabin interior within a green screen environment. We used our lighting expertise to recreate interior airplane and airport conditions and assisted PriestmanGoode and United Airlines in directing the actors to portray the comfort and luxury of the new United Polaris experience. We had some fairly complex lighting setups to recreate, to aid us we used our Black Magic ATEM Switcher to give us a live chroma key on set to match up camera angles, and lighting on our actors. The resulting stills was first shown at the global launch of United Polaris in New York City. Received to wide acclaim, it has since appeared on some of the world’s most high profile press outlets including CNN, Mashable and the Huffington Post.

See below for some behind the scenes and the final images.

NODACHI SHOOTS GLOBAL STILLS CAMPAIGN FOR ACCOLADE WINES

Last month Nodachi undertook the challenge to shoot 25 products from one of the largest distributors of wines in the UK. Accolade wines – owner of award winning brand Hardys, commissioned us to shoot their product lineup in a lifestyle scenario. We worked with their marketing department to develop “personalities” for each of their wines and then shoot them in scenes where they would be most fitting. We used a combination of studio and location techniques to create a perfect lifestyle exposure that featured studio style reflections on the bottles. The result was location shots that looked like they were sets built in a studio.

Here’s a few of our favourites:

Nodachi shoots emotive photography in a multitude of styles. This is one of our earlier personal shoots where we were inspired by some concept art one of our artists created, and we decided to bring it to life. Have a look at our personal gallery of images that we self commissioned.

NODACHI WORKS ON EE MUSION PRESENTATION

As EE launched in August of 2012, they used a novel way of giving all of their new employees – from T-Mobile and Orange, a personable experience with the heads of the company. They used a Musion Holographic Projection which we were glad to be a part of.

Musion works much like a giant peppers ghost effect, and EE used it to get all the heads of the company in one room at the same time as a recorded artefact. This way they could invite their 5000 strong staff to come and watch the “presentation” and all of them would feel like they were really being spoken to by the top brass.
