Behind the scenes on the set of the Metisha Model Profile
For this shoot, we used our RED Monstro 8k with the Vista Vision sensor because of the outstanding dynamic range and higher ISO. We outfitted the Monstro with a Leica Vista Vintage Lens to incorporate a tone that couldn’t be applied in post-production.
Leica has always been a beacon for incredible craftsmanship, so incorporating their gear into this shoot was a no brainer. The combination of high-tech, ultra-modern tech with Leica’s old-school equipment created a unique cinematic tone, which really made this production what it is.
We were fortunate to work with Metisha on this shoot. The original talent canceled last minute. Rather than scramble to reschedule, we were able to find Metisha, who showed up at 5 AM to deliver on an awesome performance.
Perhaps the highlight of this shoot (and most definitely one of the most nerve-wracking moments) was when Metisha scaled the edge of the building. There was nothing separating her from the ground eight stories below — no guard rail, no harness, nothing. Capturing that daring maneuver put this model profile on another level.
