This past weekend we went and shot a short micro doc about a candy maker Minas Zuniga (Coastal Confectionery). There were some fun challenges with this shoot, and one of them was limited space. Fortunately for candy shots it bodes well to have a tight, shallow depth of field which eliminates the need for wide shots that showcase the background.
One of the other challenges was getting creative cinematic shots in a fraction of a second! The pulled sugar (and gummy hearts) both go through a rapid change when transferred from pot to mold or mat. Thus Minas worked the candy products fiercely and kept us on our toes.
The entire shoot took roughly 5 hours to complete, and most of that time we waited patiently and captured b-roll. The finished video will run about 2-3 minutes and will be completed in the next few weeks.
