This commercial spec was cut together using footage from our 1960’s TV Pilot Presentation: Wise Guys. In the script all we needed was the knockout punch and a few hits but we ended up having a bunch of decent footage to make a commercial out of.
We couldn’t afford a hundred extras for the shoot so we ended up draping black drapes all over the boxing ring.
Because this was a lower budget shoot we shot it all on a Canon 7D with Carl Zeiss Primes, which enabled us some decent slow motion shots.
