Mtn Dew Shoot!

Update: Look for a Mtn Dew spot to air this summer. It promises to be cool!

The shoot was fantastic! I had the best time with another actor, Jameson Reeves, whom I later shared the screen with. It was a night shoot and Jameson and I saw the lens at around 5am!

Before our turn in front of the camera, we stayed up all night watching director, Mr. Tarsem and Stunt Coordinator/Fight choreographer, Steven Ho and his stuntmen, shoot the fight sequences that will eventually become anime fight scenes in the commercial! The stunt men were, Yoshio Izuka and Sam Looc. They were amazing! Using the same concept of shooting in front of a green screen where images can be computer generated onto the green areas, the stunt men were in green suits and holding green dowls as weapons. The anime characters will be computer generated onto the stuntmen and their dowls. The Pepsi Cola Company seems to be teaming up with the Blizzard Entertainment Gaming Company. Radical Media Productions took great care of us the whole night!

I can't wait to see how the commercial turns out! Jameson and I are at the end of the spot and we are hoping they make a sequel! Comment here on this blog and let us know if you would like to see us face off!
