Kiwisaver "Life Moments"

Inspired by Aardman Animation's Creature Comforts, here is a montage of a series of commercials aimed at introducing a new retirement savings scheme by illustrating normal people's ideas about saving in the form of objects around the house and workplace.

An interesting job. Alan from Yuk Foo needed a DP to help him through the photography part of this TVC, and we went out and did fairly extensive stills on our recces, which built up a solid idea of different types of characters we could find in the locations. We then shot on 35mm film in each location as part of a 2 day shoot. 

Yuk Foo then created CGI versions of many of the props to animate the conversations. 

this was a great job for me, to work so closely with the animators and compositors, to make sure that things fit together photographically.
