the pirate commercial is due in all Larry H. Miller theaters on Nov. 11. Arg. Here are more production photos. We chartered 2 1700's tall ships to sail from the coast of Roach Harbor, WA through deception pass, to Cornet Bay. We were filming a pirate battle between the two ships, which meant we got to use the cannons. It was an amazing experience and the ship crews were awesome.
Here we are meeting the ships at Roache Harbor, it was a beautiful morning. Kind of surreal. Meeting up with 300 year old ships, crew in costume to film a pirate battle.
Felicia produced the entire production. She's the one who made it happen.
greg was tired of carriying around the 40lb camera on a rolling ship, so I decided to try and get some b-roll.
they started firing the extra cannon blasts in deception pass. I decided to shoot them in super slow motion, and ended up getting some awesome footage. Too bad it doesn't fit into the commercial edit.
Our movie star Skyler got a little sun after a hard day's work jumping over canons and dodging swords on a tall ship. we roped him into doing this against his will.....
