Cows are big gentle animals and that’s why we love working with them. A-Z Animals has prepared, provided and supervised cows for upwards of 50 TV commercials, stills shoots, live events. From 50 cows on A stage at Shepperton for a vacuum TV commercial (the most cows ever assembled on a sound stage in the UK) to a single cow on a street in London at dawn for a stills portrait and all the way in between. These two Swiss Milk spots are from the achieves. At the time they were revolutionary in terms of in-camera dovetailing seamlessly with post. As ever we were then and are now, at the cutting edge.
The Sun doing what it does best; bold headline, in your face, simple, engaging, great idea beautifully executed. They come to A-Z and say…… we want 2 x great character horses wearing hats, a stables location to give context and we’ll shoot it in a day. This is what that looks like.
This spot is one horse, one jockey, multiple images and great post. An exceptional horse and an exceptional jockey providing exceptional imagery for motion control to capture. A-Z Animals provided the horse, the jockey, the shooting environment and the certainty to the client they could surpass their expectations. Decades of experience helps A-Z Animals deliver that certainty.
This spot was shot in Ukraine – great people. GC travelled to Kiev and worked with a domestic Ukrainian production company. Over the years A-Z Animals has worked with many overseas production houses who do not have our skills domestically available. This spot is a good example of that process – good memories.
Here is a sequence at the end of a Samsung spot for which we provided this beautiful Peregrine Falcon, filmed at Potters Field in London.
