A CHALLENGING JOB INDEED.  WE BUILT A CORNER SHOP IN AN ABANDONED SHIPBUILDING WAREHOUSE TO GET THE HEIGHT, RAISED THE SET-BUILT SHOP 6 METRES OFF THE GROUND TO ALLOW IT TO TILT A FULL 60 DEGREES ON A CENTRAL FULCRUM, WHILE ALL THE GOODS IN THE SHOP WERE GLUED TO THE SHELVES SO THAT THEY STAYED IN PLACE.

A 20 X 15 METRE REPLICA FACADE OF THE EXISTING BUILDING WAS BUILT TO 1:1 SCALE AT A 30 DEGREE ANGLE TO ALLOW THE ACTORS TO RUN UP IT.

THE DIRECTOR RICH LEE REALLY WANTED TO SHOOT IN A REAL CAVE.  THIS PROVED CHALLENGING, AS THE ONLY WAY TO GET INTO THE CAVE WAS TO WADE IN THE WATER THROUGH AND OVER ROCKS AT LOW TIDE.  OUR WINDOW WAS VERY NARROW TO GET ALL THE PROPS INTO THE CAVE AS THE TIDE WAS RECEDING, SHOOT AND GET OUT AGAIN IN THE DARK BEFORE THE TIDE WOULD MAKE OUR EXIT IMPOSSIBLE.

I WAS 11 YEARS OLD WHEN APOLLO 11 LANDED ON THE MOON.  I WAS FASCINATED, BUT ALSO FRUSTRATED, BECAUSE WE HAD JUST MOVED TO SOUTH AFRICA AND THEY DIDN'T HAVE TELEVISION YET, SO WE HAD TO GLUE OUR EARS TO THE TRANSISTOR RADIO.  IMAGINE MY JOY WHEN I WAS COMMISSIONED TO DESIGN THIS TV COMMERCIAL FOR ONEPLUS, WHO HAD JOINED FORCES WITH HASSELBLAD.  WE WERE GIVEN ENOUGH BUDGET TO CREATE A 1:1 SCALE SET IN STUDIO.  WE OBTAINED ALL THE ORIGINAL DESIGNS FROM NASA AND RECREATED EVERYTHING AS CLOSE AS POSSIBLE TO THE ORIGINAL.

FOR THIS AD, WE CONVERTED A CAFE' INTO A BARBER SHOP.  REMOVED ALL THE SHOP FITTINGS, REPLACED WITH OUR OWN DESIGNED FITTINGS WITH "MARBLE" COUNTER TOPS AND WHITE PORCELAIN WALL TILES.   SADLY, A LOT OF THE SHOP WITH ALL THE DETAILS AND CAREFULLY SELECTED PROPS, DIDN'T MAKE IT INTO THE FINAL CUT.

THIS WAS A LOT OF FUN INDEED.  NOT YOUR USUAL KETCHUP COMMERCIAL.  A TRUCK LOAD OF TOMATO PLANTS DISGUISE THE GRAPE VINES.  A LOT OF DETAIL WENT INTO THE DESIGN OF THE FABRICATED PROPS:  THE CAULDRON, SPICE DISPENSER, TOMATO CONVEYOR, TOMATO TRAYS LINED WITH SOFT VELVET.  OUT OF RESPECT FOR TOMATOES.
