2 DAYS ON AN INDIAN SHOOT
INDIA COMES TO NZ
2 days of lippy, powder, shimmer, curls, dancing, laughter, southerlies and plenty of head bobbling. What a fab shoot!
Indian crew from Lemon Yellow Sun landed in Wellywood a few days ago to shoot a 2 day commercial for Monte Carlo clothing. The crew were mint people and a whole lot of laughs to work with. The weather played its impeccable part of keeping up the '4 seasons in one day' scenario, not only did we get wind burnt, drenched and are arses frozen off, we also got a touch of sunburn just to top off our days.
We had 3 international models arrive for the shoot, a gorgeous lady by the name of Marcella whom shone like a star and nothing was a problem. She had literally got off a plane from Brazil , got thrown into our fabulous makeup Maui van, stripped of most of her clothes and was made to stand in the sea in a southerly and look happy about it ahhhhh . She was an absolute Storm trooper!
Then there was Faranz, a very professional, popular male model from Iran and Carolina, another beautiful but slightly more on the diva-rish side, Brazilian model.
The crew were top people and really showed us all about fast turn around TV!!! They also showed us when there is a need to cut back on budget, get rid of continuity 1st ahhhhh. Outrageous I hear you say and I couldn't agree with you more, but it sure was a giggle when things disappear and reappear through different angles of the scenes being shot. Certainly it made for an easier day although I wouldn't want to be in the editors shoes at the other end.
All in all,it was yet another wonderful job, a crazy adventure, new fun mates and a lot of laughs... oh and did I mention a lot of head bobbling! Loved it.
PS we were explained that the head bobbling means they are happy , not sad, between yes and no, maybe or not sure. In general i guess you could say fence sitting?
