As someone who has done time in an office I'm sympathetic to staff when rocking up with a film crew to shoot a promotional video.
A workspace can be a personal thing; photos of the dog, the novelty mug, the lava lamp (guilty as charged). The last thing you want is some outsider asking you to rearrange your desk.
So please bear with us. We're only looking to enhance the 'cinematic reality' of your daily workplace.
Part of the cinematic experience is being taken away to imaginative lands or seeing something exciting happen in a mundane setting. That is why so many films use a cinematic reality — a world that is grounded in actual reality but best serves the overall aesthetic of a film.
