Client: DNA Television Commercial for Scandinavia
Production Company: Shootaway and CapefinnMy Role: Production manager
This was a highly ambitious shoot over a 3 day period , 20 + Character roles, Children,Babies, Animals , Machinery ,high end locations, busy locations, many vehicles, a big crew and a lot of pressure. This was the most challenging but also most rewarding shoot I have ever done. We did all the local production service for the Finnish production company who also flew 2 of the clients from DNA out to be on the shoot with us. We were able to cast 20+ Roles of people who needed to all look Scandinavian and shot everything from a tourist scene in the middle east to a hospital scene of a baby being delivered. The commercial itself has been a very successful one for DNA and the nature of it quick cuts through life showing many characters of all ages going through different life moments was the challenge for us from a coordinating and logistics point of view. This was a full scale television commercial and I was very happy to work with and under some amazingly gifted people including my producer Patrick Walton a very experienced and well known producer in Cape Town film and television circles.
