We had a great time working again with Chrome Pictures and renowned Indian director Amit Sharma in December 2012.
With two shooting days around Cape Town and four in and around Johannesburg, we managed a really smooth job of packing it all in and allowing for the creation of a beautiful commercial that really shows the splendour of Africa.
Locations around Jo’burg included the classic Savanna landscapes offered by Lindbergh Estate, where we shot the hot air balloon, Masai warriors, wildebeest and zebra, and captured the true African feel. For the dense jungle scenes we took the production to Graskop. Each of these locations are about five hours out of Jo’burg, though in completely different directions, so there was a lot of travelling. Look out for the giraffe grabbing a snack through the Mahindra’s window, which we shot at Glen Afric.
We used Cape Town to cover a diverse range of beautiful scenery and landscapes, going up to 5 hours out for the arid dry Karoo areas along the R355 to Calvinia, and the Tankwa Karoo – and then to the beautiful range of mountains, lakes, roads which can be found within an hour and a half of the city.
Another ambitious shoot serviced by Atomik Pictures, resulting in another high quality piece of work.
