February 2021: Everybody at Le Grand Set team is busy preparing the LF7 for its first official flight.
Shooting this teaser involves a complex flight plan, designed to showcase the full technical potential of the LF7 aircraft interior.
For this first demonstration, the LF7 team had a twofold aim: to clearly present the technical possibilities of the LF7, and to illustrate the benefits of these technical resources for both image quality and scriptwriting.
To address this twofold challenge, director Jonathan Vuille decided to combine the dramatic intensity of a trailer with the technical appeal of a making-of in a single film. Making this original film with its hybrid format involved addressing the subject from a dual perspective and with a dual technical team.
By using a trailer format, the director was able to compile the largest possible number of scenes and to showcase the aircraft interior from all angles.
The set design team, led by Laurent Foulquier, was thereby able to validate the objectives set during the model design process. Each module was installed in turn in different configurations: business or economy class, galley, toilets, crew rest area, etc., with a fully functional mockup for each scene!
Each scene shot for the trailer was mirrored by the shooting of a making-of. In this way, the film illustrates the modularity of the LF7 in full:
Naturally, many more possibilities remain to be explored: the LF7 mockup is designed to adapt to the needs of any shoot and is now ready to host the next productions!
Le Grand Set brought all its skills into play to make this film, in which all the team members embrace their role with enthusiasm.
Some technicians even switched to the other side of the camera to double as extras. It has to be said that there was a great atmosphere on board the LF7 and the extras had considerable fun. Le Grand Set would particularly like to thank Dorine and Elodie, the two air hostesses who played their role to perfection.
