  • Objective: Unit9 (unit9.com), a London based global production partner, were in the middle of shooting a Campari sponsored documentary in Rome, Italy, focused on AI technology and the work of legendary Italian filmmaker Frederico Fellini. The covid pandemic prevented Dr Hava Aldouby, a world renown Fellini expert from Israel, from flying to the set in Rome. So crucial to the film was Aldouby that the producers and directors wanted an Israel based to film and record her whilst sending a high quality live feed via web software to a movable robot with a screen in Rome. After reaching out to Glow Films, we built a set in our studio (The Jerusalem Film Studio) that closely resembled the set in Italy. Following extensive testing, a live session and interview were carried out with a teleprompter used in an unorthodox and innovative way so that the crew in Rome could easily communicate with Dr Aldouby during filming.
  • Services: Pre-production planning, brainstorming and studio/camera testing with Producers/Directors/DOP • Provided The Jerusalem Film Studio  + teleprompter • Shot/directed the action
