    Moonsport and 6 months with the Proteas Cricket Team

    21 January 2014

    The Castle Lager Proteas Test Team “Road to Number One” documents the journey by the SA cricket team to lead the log by a huge margin.  The South African Cricket board partnered with Moonlighting and some of the greatest cricketers the world has ever seen – Graeme Smith, Gary Kirsten, Jacques Kallis, Dale Steyn, Vernon Philander –  to tell this story.  Released in time for Christmas, the doccie is the result of a 6 months labour of love directed by Liza Key and with production by Emanuel Ferreira.  It is also the first production from Moonsport – a division of Moonlighting that is providing digital sports content resulting from strong player relationships the company has nurtured through the years.  The company capitalizes on having serviced the sports industry in many disciplines since inception.

    Windhoek Lager with Didier Drogba in Turkey, Kenya & South Africa

    15 January 2014

    Unusual for Moonlighting, the brief came from South African agency Jupiter Drawing Room; the requirement – an international director used to working with sports stars. A few weeks and a lot of flights later, the result was this spine tingling spot with Ivorian soccer star Didier Drogba that aired on December 19th.  Directed by US-based Matt Bieler, this was a very cool international collaboration.  Moonlighting’s Head of Production Shayne Brookstein produced, taking her team (Bieler, Japanese award-winning DP Masa Takayanagi and Australian AD Ian Astridge) to Turkey, Kenya and back to South Africa in 2 short weeks. Shot for the African market, the commercial celebrates the story of a beer from Africa that has grown to be loved and celebrated worldwide and draws comparison with a man who has followed a similar journey. Drogba is seen journeying across African landscapes and rough terrain before arriving at a soccer stadium to claim victory. Big congratulations to the team!

    Credits

    Director Matt Bieler, Producer Shayne Brookstein, Agency Jupiter Drawing Room, Exec Producer Philip Key, DP Masa Takayanagi, AD Ian Astridge, Creative Director Jonathan Beggs, Creative Group Head Andrew Lang, TV producer Lauren Trevelyan.

    Dressman came back for the 4th year running with Stockholm’s Film by us and director Jerker Joseffson who then returned with Ellos; The Producers flew in to shoot Cubus with director Eric Brims and then returned to shoot AMF and Marabou with Traktor. Hobby Films went camping at Groot Constantia for their Statoil ad with Magnus Renfors and we took Stockholm’s Family Planning out to one of the last pine forests for their Hitta ad. We loved working with Oslo’s Tangrystan again who came with director Jakob Strom to shoot in Salt River Studio where art director Mark Auret created a Norwegian hospital set build for their Insurance ad. And we met Oslo’s Plastikk for the first time who came over to shoot Komplett on 2 perfect days in Constantia.

    Agustin Alberdi’s Gancia

    7 February 2013

    Award winning director Agustin Alberdi came out to Cape Town with Landia Buenos Aries to shoot this Gancia spot with us. We love it. Look for sneaky lover zip-sliding out of a Camps Bay villa bedroom to escape irate husband; explosions at Rhodes Memorial; the ever-stunning drive along the ocean in a convertible and some great café / club scenes.

    Bat Suit base-jumping for Rexona’s digital viral

    7 February 2013

    Extreme sports heroes, base-jumpers JT Holmes and Espen Fadnes (Wingsuit World Champion 2010) flew off the mountain at Banghoek in Jonkershoek Nature Reserve in December  for the latest viral campaign for Unilever’s Rexona. Working with agency R/GA, Ranch Exit Media, ex-Moonlightinger Richard Moerdyk’s Fixerfilm, Leander Lacey from Stunt Network and a great crew, we had the shoot day of our lives! The logistics of the shoot meant we had a very small crew; environmental concerns required minimal contact with the mountain surface; and the script included a set-build in the saddle of a remote mountain pass. Richard’s “nothing can stop us” attitude overcame all these challenges.  “We literally dropped the “set” in, and removed it, by helicopter” he recalls drily. “Weather conditions were perfect and I was privileged to work with an incredible team of experts.”

    10 days: 9 tvc’s for the Black Arts Company

    7 February 2013

    UK agency The Black Arts Company spent most of November with us to shoot commercials for their TTI Floorcare campaign for iconic brand Hoover Vax and Dirt Devil for the UK and USA. Directors Ian Cassie & Richard Ward, stills director Jaiman Harji and producers Nina van Heerden and Kevin Giblin shot 9 scripts simultaneously over the 10 days. We were also privileged to assist The Black Arts Company with their film to promote the charity “Give us Time” while they were here. The charity asks people to donate the use of their holiday homes so that troops returning from Afghanistan can spend time with their families.  The South Africa portion was directed by Ian Cassie with photography by Paul Bond. Crew and suppliers gave their time freely for the extra shoot day and Moonlighting made a beach house in Pringle Bay available for both the shoot and for a soldier family to use in the future.  Thanks to all involved for their huge generosity, including Priest Cape Town, Panavision SA and Panalux SA.
