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.
