Lexus gets all the bells and whistles


19 December 2016

We have just completed production on a super exciting project for Lexus. Because the project is still in post production we can’t say too much so watch this space. The project required helicopter recces and Suffice to say we had all the toys on this one including the Freedom arm, drone action, shooting boat to boat, helicopter to boat. We love projects like this as they really separate the men from the boys.

Directing duo Don Marsh and Mike Aldershot of Man vs Machine created the vision, Friend London, Richard Fenton and Luke Jacobs produced.

The locations included epic sculptural landmarks, sweeping vistas, magnificent scenery and a jawdropping private property. We cant wait to be showing off this commercial.

Shooting in the next few days (early December 2016) is Sprite for Joy Films out of Dubai. Directed by Harold Zwart of karate kid fame out of LA, this project promises to be an exciting one! Watch this space for the completed project

"What a chop!" A chop is a term used to describe an idiot or a moron. If someone has done something silly, or idiotic, you could call them a chop! for example: John left his car lights on and now his battery is dead... What a chop!

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”
