I did a Google Image search of pier 44 waterfront garden.

Looks totally different from anything in the commercial plus the distance to the statue is way off.

And the angle is off too.
Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

Camera tricks.
If I get time later today, I'll paste it up for you.
Might not be the same commercial as whatever is the one is this tread, but I'm almost positive it's the one with the twit woman.
 
Oh wait, that doesn't narrow it down much does it...?  LOL

No, it really doesn't.

But I think we are in basic agreement that what we are seeing on the commercials, is not an accurate reflection of what really exists.

I'm guessing they wanted/needed to shoot the ads with the statue in the background, close up enough to see clearly and from the proper angle, facing the camera, but the physical layout of the harbor and surrounding land masses are not such that they could simply set up their equipment on the shore and just yell "Lights, camera, ACTION!!!".

So they probably either took a few pictures or short film/video clips from the proper vantage point, then shot the actors on a closed, indoor set in front of a blue screen. OR... as you suggested, they hired a barge to tow out to the perfect spot and, with a mock background for the actors to stand in front of, shot it from an artificial vantage point.

Either way.... camera tricks.

I tried to find some facts, some thought they might be shot from a Ferry.
Maybe a CHARTER BOAT TO GET TO THE SAME LOCATION AND ANCHOR.
Others thought it was trick 'BLUE SCREEN' photography.

A ferry or a barge.

I'm thinking a barge because it is a big, flat floating platform that has plenty of room to set up lights and cameras and sound equipment etc, as well as a mock up background for the actors to stand in front of.

I was thinking that maybe they just got a camera person to shoot some random footage from the right distance and angle, then did the rest inside a soundstage in Hollywood or somewhere in front of a blue screen.

Maybe they tried both methods.

One thing is certain, there is no land mass situated at the angle and distance from the statue as is depicted in the ads.

From the nearest land that is from the angle they show, the statue would look so small, it would be almost unrecognizable.

I can't argue with anything you and Anduril are saying.


20mb image hosting


image upload no size limit

They could get that backdrop of the statue with a zoom lense from the shore...then add the foreground as they choose. Confused
