    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.

    Winter holidays?

    3 October 2012

    We spent our winter months happily on set, working around Cape Town’s rain with studios, Joburg shoots and luck! Projects ranged from small to big and included: filming elephants (always such a privilege) up at Brookers Farm for Fifty-Seven GmbH; working with 18 babies in studio for 3 days; filming interviews for Canada; and one of those dream shoots up at Atlantis Dunes with  4 x 4’s + galloping stallions + stunning model + helicopter + sunny days (phew) + great clients = a lot of fun. Thanks Frans Marais for stunning behind the scenes pic. Meanwhile, Grinder’s Tabletop director Rob Payton was in Poland shooting for Knorr; in Moscow shooting for Prodo and then in Bangkok for National Foods.

    NCIS’s Daniella Ruah and Underwater Time-Slice

    3 October 2012

    This is the commercial we shot with Portugal’s Krypton Films (Media & Advertising’s Best Production Company of the Year) for Agua das Pedras, with NCIS actress Daniella Ruah.  South Africa was one of the only countries in the world that said underwater time-slice could be done within the budget. Shooting with a Phantom and 28 Canon 600d’s, Director Augusto Fraga got his stunning underwater shots of the NCIS actress  in a specialised diving tank at the Simonstown naval base where the water is the clearest you will find in the country. Special thanks to: time-slice technician Jono O’Connel and Frog Squad’s Jason Martin.
