    Never Stop: Epic Adventure for North Face from Mekanism

    1 October 2015

    North Face went for epic adventure in their first ever global ad campaign, created by Mekanism. The team came to South Africa this winter and shot at 6 locations in 4 “Amazing Race” type days. They braved Hout Bay Harbour’s choppy winter swell, skate-boarded down Steenbras Pass Road, froze at Sutherland (home to our Observatory), jumped off Kynsna’s Red Bridge and then raced up to Johannesburg and Pretoria for museum and market shots. The South African scenes were combined with shots from Alaska and Nepal to create the beautioful end product

    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!
