The Japanese House

Tamayo Hussey has missed Japan ever since she moved to the UK with her husband Nigel. To stave off the homesickness they've decided to transofrm a forester's lodge into a Japanese house complete with roof bath, tatami room and sliding paper walls. 

All actuality was shot using a Sony F800 XDCam in 25p, with the odd reverse shot on a Canon 305 by a shooting AP. For the final reveal of the building, all detail and cutaway shots were filmed using a Canon C300 with Zeiss CP2 prime lenses, to achieve a high quality shallow depth of field look. A jib and track are also used to help bring high quality production values.
