Arkema | Virtucycle – Step Into the Loop

July 28, 2022

Earlier this year, Arkema partnered with MAKE/FILMS to create a video to help launch their latest sustainable product release – one that’s been a decade in the making. It was important to the client to show the dedicated team behind the research and development of Forane® 1233zd.

We wanted to elevate the look and feel of this video to showcase the level of care and professionalism that the R&D team brings to their work. We carefully lit each lab scene, utilized anamorphic lenses, and crafted a thoughtful script and shot list. Watch the results!

From Steve, the DP

We wanted to find a way to not make just another lab video, instead, we made it dark and moody and gritty, shooting on Atlas anamorphic lenses for those crazy flares and wide cinematic goodness.
