The last moments of a high stakes pokergame between Monsieur Rado and Madame Soraya comes down to the turn of a card.
Behind the Scenes
We wanted to concentrate on a scenario where we can capture very minute, small sounds, so we decided on a poker game.
Cards flipping and chips falling on the table where recorded in the actual scene, but also during an extra setup where we recorded the sounds once more where we only focused on the individual sounds.
The final moments of a poker game where the perfect scenario, because the setup was easy to do and could all be acchieved in a small studio.
We flipped the setup for the reverse shot and turned the (very small) table to make it appear bigger than it acutally is.
