Stills and video of Dreamworks Experience for Royal Caribbean Cruise

Stills and video of Dreamworks Experience for Royal Caribbean Cruise As a leading commercial photographer, Karan has worked with client Royal Caribbean Cruise on a number of occasions. The most recent project he was involved in was for the Dreamworks Experience, a vibrant and colourful entertainment experience for customers on board the luxurious cruise liner Allure of the Seas. "Shooting stills and video for the Dreamworks Experience was a busy job," says Karan. "I got to work with a range of characters including Kung Fu Panda, Po, Shrek, Puss in Boots and all the characters from the Dreamworks animated film Madagascar." For the project, Karan was asked to shoot both still images and video. This is something he is seeing more and more of in the commercial and promotional side of the photographic industry, and believes is a set of key skills any successful commercial photographer needs to develop and maintain. "The most challenging aspect of the Dreamworks Experience project was the elaborate parade," explains Karan. "We had only one chance to shoot this, and had no option to stage it, pause it or retake any shots at all. The parade only lasted 20 minutes, and we couldn't get in the way of any of the characters or floats, yet had to capture as much of the colour and movement as possible. We tackled this unique challenge by setting up five cameras to shoot stills and video from various angles." See what you think of the final version of the parade video here.
