VIT.B shoot - Zurich City

I just came back from a 2 day intense shoot in Zurich City. I filmed a Viral internet short film for an excellent wine maker named Wade Metzer. Zurich is a stunning city and it was brilliant to spend so much time in the heart of the city going from location to location.

The highlight by far was the filming we did inside a theater house. The place is just too good to be true. It has it all. It reminded me of the Star Gazer Cinema in Worcester South Africa, owned by Trevor Daly. It was the place where I had my first ever surf film premier. The good old days....

Anyway, back to this theater. Whichever scene we had to shoot, we found it within the theater house. Whatever props we needed we found them with very little effort. It was like a giant movie studio just for us to do what ever we wanted. And we did. It would have been inspirational for any filmmaker. The sad thing about the place is they have until 2014 before the bank sector demolishes it and build some sky scraper office block in its place.

Here are a few behind the scenes photos. It was a small production, but surely stood out as an epic experience working with wonderful dedicated people.

New RTM Slide film

Just finish a demostrational film for Rotomod with surfing from Mathieu Babarit and Caroline Angibaud. Taylor Lausten did the narration. Everything was filmed on location in Portugal a few weeks ago. Hope you enjoy the short film.

Lourens van der Westhuizen

One more Wine Rockstar film done! Since this guy is a real rock climber and wine maker, it makes him a true rock star in the wine industry. As if that's not enough, he planted his vineyards in dry rock! The other interesting thing about Lourens van der Westhuizen is that all his wines are single cultivars. He does no blending. What you get in a specific block of grapes is what you will find in the bottle Enjoy the film.
