Each Herman Miller chair was shot separately on blue screen by remote control with a Panasonic HVX 200 camera in 720 P30, set to one-shot, single frame recording. More than 2,000 frames were recorded.

The blue background was removed with chroma key filters in Final Cut Pro. Each chair had it’s own video track. The size and position of each chair (and logo) within the frame was controlled with motion parameters in the canvas window. The logo was altered in Photoshop to move independently.
