Art, Music Videos, Stunts and Olivia Somerlyn – Parachute
Director Ryan Pallotta has an artistic eye to create beautiful music videos much like you see on high profile fashion exibits. It was his wish to levitate Olivia with wires to give her a weightless dream state sequence. Being able to fly an artist makes it even more special for a director so that they could see the artist face and body language in the same shot.
Some people may think floating a bed in the middle of a dry lake bed would be impossible. But to Stunt Rigging Companies like T Minus Stunt Rigging Inc and Action Design Company T Minus Productions lead by Stunt Coordinator TJ White it is all in a days work. Fabricating a steel frame to enforce the bed for the first hurdle had to overcome. With out changing the integrity of the bed and not damaging this expensive piece of furniture. Every cable, clamp or fitting was custom fabricated to be able to levitate this bed up in the air from a crane.
This particular project was Production Designed by Alex Delgado “Lady Gaga, Calvin Harris, Nicki Minaj”. In working with such a busy and talented production designer like Alex, a person needs to be able to create an action sequence that is safe while giving him the shot they want.
