The Convo

The Garnier Spot directed by Fabienne Berthaud


14 January 2013

We are delighted to show off The GARNIER spot, shot here earlier in the season with Uturn out of France on behalf of Publicis.
A beautiful commercial directed by Fabienne Berthaud lit by Arnaud Stefani. Fabienne is reknown for the special way she directs her female characters, giving them a free spirited beauty.

Shot over several days on a lavender farm in Stellenbosch 40 mins from Cape Town city centre and a magnificent garden location – the beauty of the landscape and the magnificent South African light is very obvious.

To off set the knee high lavender bushes an olive tree was brought in by crane for the shoot to add another dimension to the exquisite backdrop. Picture this - 10 men, one digger loader, half a day, a fair amount of sweat and a brilliant end result! Another reason we Love what we do...Its all about creating moments of MAGIC!!
