A couple of weeks back I accompanied the guys from M3 Creative on a one day video shoot for Westand Milk Products. My job was to set up and gather portrait stills. Organization and art direction were provided by the very capable team from Q Brand Agency.
The main two challenges were the time of year and working around the video crew so as not to hinder what they needed to accomplish. Winter weather not only gives fewer daylight hours but can throw a few curve balls. Our particular curve ball on the day was a heavy frost which covered the normally lush green pastures in a layer of white. Fortunately the sun stayed out and we could start the portraits in earnest by 10 am. By then I had scouted the locations and lined up the most suitable areas. The video crew of Craig Forster & Mark Marchand were great to work with and it was not difficult to work around them to get what I needed.
Thanks to Robert Jamieson from Q Brand Agency for excellent art direction as usual, and to my wife Jacqui for being the charming assistant on the day.
