After a successful advertising shoot in Moscow for Chivas I was asked back to shoot Global advertising for Ararat Brandy. This was made up of 3 main Adverts.
I worked with the production company and TBWA Russia to problem solve and come up with solutions on how to shoot the adverts in just over just 2 days + 1/2 pre light day.
In total including Production, Agency, Clients, assistants, set designers, food + Drink stylist + post production we had over 25 people on set.
I decided that shooting all the assets separately, bottles and backdrops would give post production better control and the freedom to create the perfect advert. It also allowed me to concentrate on the the bottles outside of the intended environment then add in colour tones and reflections to make sure it all tied in well. All the shots were very technical and needed to be light appropriately to match the lightsourcde of the backdrops
Set design 1 included a origin shot with wooden casket and grapes inside a copper tunnel
set design 2 was to showcase the blended brandy at different stages
Set 3 was to show the most mature bottles imbedded in an tree trunk
Final Visuals will be ready soon, look out for the full BTS film soon
