French term or phrase:plan maccro
Instructions for shooting an ad for fruit juice, which is being shot as if it were a perfume ad but at the end, the perfume bottle turns out to be a bottle of Schweppes:
On peut également imaginer de démarrer dans un plan maccro du « jus », comme si l’on était au cœur du parfum puis dézoomer pour révéler la bouteille Schweppes
Do please let's note that in photography and cinematography, the term 'macro' has a very specific technical meaning, which is not the same as 'ECU' (though the end result may fortuitously appear similar).
Now it remains to be seen if the writer (probably a 'creative'!) was deliberately using the term with technical accuracy, or just rather fuzzily.
But it ill behoves us as translators to take that decision for them, and to depart from the technically accurate meaning.
(Oh and yes, BTW, I feel quite sure this is just a simple typo for 'macro'.)
