    Cannes Lions 2015

    30 June 2015

    Moonlighting’s Beccy and Shayne spent a hard (yeah right), fantastic week at Cannes Lions. Once again we were part of the GPN base which ran from 11 – 5pm every day, this year at La Mandala Beach Restaurant on the Croisette – great for meetings and a base for clients to chill out and use the WIFI. We had our GPN Summit on the Tuesday – attended by some 30 production service companies from around the world. We went to the Shots Party, The Location Guide Soiree, the P.I.G Films / Tantor Barbequeue, the Lee Films Tapas party, the Geek Films party, dined with many old friends and were proud to sponsor what was hailed as THE party of the week. The South African Party rocked it his year. Pulse Music’s Marc Agranti DJ’d along with guest DJ Juan Woodbury and Boerewors rolls were served at 1am. We we had to close the doors when the guest-count hit 600.

    David Review’s write-up on Paul WS Anderson’s Audi spot “Coup”

    29 April 2015

    No one does bombastic nonsense quite like The Mob’s Paul WS Anderson. In this film – for example – it’s pretty obvious that this gang of crooks would be better advised buying the cars they steal as it would certainly be the cheaper option.

    But that doesn’t matter one bit… instead of thinking about that, just concentrate on the glorious spectacle of a well-organised heist. Even if the whole point is to demonstrate they’re not going to get away with it because of some elaborate tracking system that allows the police to recover the vehicles.

    Anderson is very much the ‘go to guy’ for this kind of action film facsimile and rightly so. There’s something about the way he puts together sequences like this that makes you think the police ought to be interviewing him about the Hatton Garden diamond job. Not that he was involved, of course, but perhaps the cops should be asking him how he WOULD have done it if he was!

    Paul WS Anderson’s ‘The Coup” for Audi

    29 April 2015

    The Hollywood blockbuster style Audi spot we shot with Resident Evil Director Paul WS Anderson with UK’s Mob Films and Berlin’s Markenfilm Berlin for agency thjnk berlin was flighted last week. This is the spot that had us shutting down entire sections of highway in Johannesburg last year.

    It made Editor’s Pick in this weeks’s Creativity online – ” “The Coup” centres on a team of daredevils hijacking a transporter full of Audi S Line Special Edition Models while it’s actually on the highway and lifting it over the busy traffic via helicopter. To achieve that action movie excitement, the agency tapped director Paul W.S. Anderson (“Resident Evil” and “The Three Musketeers”). The message, of course, is that these Audis are so desirable that people would go to these extreme lengths to get their hands on them. Thjnk’s Berlin office worked on the spot, with production by German firm Markenfilm Berlin.”

    Toyota – a 3 country epic

    23 March 2015

    Directed by Daisuke Kobayashi, this is the epic 3-country project shot by Spoon, Tokyo for Dentsu and Toyota. The identical sequence was shot in Tokyo, Sydney and finally with us in Cape Town, with the production team flying between the 3 cities over 5 – 6 months. Two identical hero cars (the classic Toyota Levin from the 1980’s) were used between the 3 countries. Every camera angle, every shot was matched in each version. The Spoon and Dentsu teams were great to work with – we loved this project.
