Florian dusted off the jodphurs to direct for the famous steel and manufacturing giant. The gang shot in Calgary and the boomtown of Fort McMurray where temperatures reached minus 30˚ Celsius! Join the adventure!
rkcr/Y&R had a script that shouted Canada, Johnny wanted Kazahkstan, and James Bland, Johnny's producer, said "let's talk to Dave at Means of Production in Vancouver. He knows everything". The result is one of the most fun, exciting epic commercials many of us have ever worked on. Yeah.
Have a look for yourself. You may not believe your eyes.
Daniel Barber directed, Matthew Brown produced and John Lynch DP'd a really big, fun project. Tony Fernandes was the AD. The very talented PM Russell Hasenberg came along and local super star PM Kristi Lippa kept it all smooth and calm. We were in the stage, on the rolling hills of the BC interior at sunrise, and on the roof of a parking garage making a whole lot of rain. All the toys, all the time. Nice.
Stewart Parr directed with Igor Jadue-Lillo shooting with the Phantom high speed camera. Very cool. Jill Sartore produced for MOP and did a fantastic job. Mandy Kothe produced for Tony Petersen and was a joy to work with. So great to have the Tony Petersen gang back again this year.
Sabine Lippert, Executive Producer at NSF (and the most wonderful EP on the planet) and Susan Barenberg (an incredibly lovely producer - I get goosebumps just thinking of the two of them) brought one of the nicest shoots in memory to Vancouver (just ask Sabine!). The cast came from Vancouver, Toronto, Montréal, Paris, and South Africa. Some people even got Canadian Wood!
The team travelled from Germany to Sri Lanka to Vancouver and home again to film an internet and cinema commercial for Rapid Share online file sharing. Ask Kristi to show you her pictures if you want to know what kind of time they had. Read all about it.
Karen Cameron led a group of Vancouver producers and location managers to the spectacular Robson Valley. Dog Sleds, Trains, Heli-Skiing, and great roads abound.
