70,000 Crystals & a Vespa
Agency: Red Tettemer O’Connell and Partners

Featuring: The Crystal Ninja
In April we shot a 2 week time lapse showing a Vespa being hand-covered with Swarovski crystals. The process resulted in a 35 second web promo spot for a new Swarovski giveaway campaign. We set up three cameras: a primary and a back up DSLR from the front angle, and a GoPro directly overhead. All the cameras were powered from AC outlets. The DSLRs remained powered up for the full 2 weeks, each run by its own external interval timer set at one shot per minute. The GoPro also shot one frame per minute but it was turned off each night via the iPad app so as to preclude overheating issues. Be sure and keep your sunglasses on when driving behind this scooter!
