About this video...

Six months ago, I put this together for a dear friend in the office who is into everything Space Marine (it's a game). This is a parody of the original Space Marine commercial with Lance Hendrickson and Tricia Helfer.

I decided to cut it down a bit and give it a home on YouTube.

Here are the links to the actual Space Marine products or companies:

About the gear used...

Green screen with 2 lights, actors with 3-point lighting, Canon DSLR, 50mm lens, off and on camera mics, edited in After Effects and Sony Vegas Pro.
