In 2014 we had the massive job of creating the greatest show on earth for the greatest soap on earth!
Collaborating between Australia and the UK, had us pulling out every trick for the Stills and Motion imagery, of the 30 Years of Neighbours Anniversary.
Everything from prop and set builds, casting look-a-like humans, and look-a-like dogs! Working with 24 current cast members, a 40+ crew on the shoot day alone, and we can’t forget having the 2 dogs and a rabbit in one scene. Plus loads of glitter, smoke, coffee, and plenty of beers! To of course having to find a suitable studio to fit us all for 5 days.
We could not of done this without the great combined UK and Australian crews hard work, that we put together for the shoot. And of course the fabulous Fremantle Australia and UK clients.
Here is a little look behind the scenes of our biggest, and best job of 2014.
