The Convo

Kagome commercial shot in the magnificent Cederberg.


27 August 2013

We have also just completed work on a Vegetable juice commercial for KAGOME.
This is a Japanese commercial out of LA and Tokyo.

Shot in the magnificent Cederberg mountains on a plateaux overlooking the plains below. A logistically challenging shoot given the terrain and the fact that because it was in the middle of the great outdoors, crew had to be housed in several different locales for the duration of the shoot.

The extraordinary sunrise captured on film and the feeling of being at one with nature that the films suggests, makes it all worthwhile.

Check out the commercial here as well as some great behind the scenes shots on our Facebook Page (it was not warm that week!!)

We South africans like a bit of a party, and “Epic” denotes a pretty fab party. If its even better than fabulous we may throw in “flipping” before “Epic” . so ... "That Afrika Burn jol was flipping Epic my Bru”
