Early starts for the necessary pastries, before a lovely day with crew and clients on set for a few diamond pasta TVCs. That’s our lovely director Laura Sargisson being well looked after, poolside, by Chris Ruane, and crack camera team of Bevan Crothers with able assistance from Niki Winer.
Loved working on this one with the boys at Kaleidoscope - check the spot out below!
A beautiful reveal of some of the best spots for a couple to experience in our home town of Auckland. Photographed by Todd Eyre for ATEED, and proudly produced by us!
Some behind the scenes with our great friends at Kaleidoscope for DDB and the Warehouse’s Big Toy Month. Lovely words from our client at the Warehouse - totally deserved by the amazing team on set!
I just want to say a HUGE thank you to all of you for the filming day of Big Toys on Friday 1 June.
I am so impressed by the team and the various suppliers and collaborators. On the day, the actors, the film crew, stylists and the caterers were so generous, kind and incredibly professional. Without a doubt, one of the best film sets for a commercial I’ve ever attended. Thank you!
So excited to see the edit and how this translates across the various media.
Finals from our shoot with Todd Eyre, a bit of sparkle for our lovely client at SkyCity

My favourite beach in the world was the perfect backdrop to create some cinemagraphs for a social media campaign for Oyster Bay Wines with Todd Eyre.
