The Crystal Piano - Case Study

Goldfinch, a British luxury piano company wanted the whole process of the crystal piano being made from the keys being cut all the way to the last crystal being applied. It was a 5 month project overall from start to finish.

Once the piano was finished, we had two days in the Junction Eleven studio. One and a half days were spent photographing the piano and the other half day was spent filming for the finale shot in the main video.

  We used the Gopro Hero 4 to capture a 3 month time lapse of the crystals being applied. Using a mains timer this prevented the battery from getting fried.
