    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.

    Passion Pictures’ Compare the Market

    17 November 2014

    This is one of those spontaneous smile-makers! Passion Pictures, VCCP and directors Darren Walsh and David Scanlon brought their iconic Russian meercat “Aleksandr Orlov” campaign to Africa earlier this year to shoot their latest ads and a series of idents. Join them as the Meercats show baby Oleg his roots… (and the stripey pajama horses…)

    Thanks to Moonlighting’s production team & crew on this – led by Shayne Brookstein, Suzanne Currie and Wade Olckers – with filming up at Shambala Private Game Reserve, Lindberg Lodge and Glen Afric.

    Philip Key introduces Moonlighting…

    7 October 2014

    A quick 5 minute overview of Moonlighting – right here.

    Last month, Moonlighting CEO Philip Key was unable to attend the 2014 Conference for the International Quorum of Producers – an organisation that we proudly joined by invitation earlier this year. So – we made a short film to play at the conference; a concise overview of Moonlighting, our sister companies and South Africa as a film destination – complete with a quick intro to the film financing opportunities in South Africa.

    The only thing missing was the sun which refused to brighten up the misty backdrop.
