What happens when Spider-Man crosses paths with a Lady Gaga playlist in our Tampa video production studio? This year’s Comic Con TV commercials of course! For the last five years, our Tampa vIdeo company, Litewave Media has had the pleasure of working with the team behind one of the largest Comic Con franchises in the country to produce TV commercials and YouTube spots.

This year, our production company produced spots for San Francisco Comic Con, Atlanta Comic Con, Indiana Comic Con, Michigan Comic Con, and of course, Tampa Comic Con. The commercials will begin airing this March through the end of 2018. The one and only Spider-Man made an appearance and brought with him an arsenal of toys and collectibles for the spots.

Got comics? Spidey strikes a pose on our Tampa video studio floor.

The 30 second TV spots as well as shorter commercial segments for YouTube were filmed on our ARRI Alexa Mini camera in 4k with Canon lenses. The spot was lit with our ARRI Skypanel s60 as well as a few Litepanel Astras, and our Altman Spectra 100 cyc lights. Check out our Tampa grip and lighting rental page for more info on our lighting packages.

Our Tampa video crew had a blast spending the day with the web-slinging superhero. With shooting wrapped, post production and editing of the project took place in one of our 4k Tampa video editing suites. To finish off the spot in true Comic Con fashion, our own Christian Cashmir composed a Lady Gaga-inspired song just for the commercials.

That's a wrap for this Tampa based film crew.

Comics, action figures, trading cards, and of course Spidey…just another day at the office here at Litewave Media!

We had a great time on this project and look forward to doing it again next year! In the mean time, check out the first commercial for Indiana Comic Con right here!
