    HKDL + PhotoPass App

    2017

    A Tale of Two Apps...

    The brief was to create 3 different edits, showcasing the HK Disneyland Park app, PhotoPass app, and one edit that would combine both. Pressed by the upcoming holiday season, we had to pull the whole production - storyboarding, location scouting, talent sourcing - in just a couple of weeks. Shooting from sunrise to sunset on one of the hottest days of the year certainly added another level of difficulty, but made it happen.

    During post-production, the challenge was to tell a story that demonstrated the two different apps' functionalities without being too long or confusing, and up to Disney's high standards.

    We had two days to shoot all the footage necessary for three different edits - hotel, food & beverage and spa. Therefore, to avoid disrupting the guests at Banyan Tree Macau, it was essential that we planned production down to the smallest detail. Storyboarding each scene was crucial to maximising our time at each location. Our movements had to be carefully coordinated with access location limited to specific times during the day. 

    Admittedly though, it was the first time talents asked for more takes.

    If you thought you could escape from your electronic devices when playing sports, think again! Coachbase's neat app is making its way onto the best basketball courts around the world.

    In this 60 second explainer we needed to feature the app's extraordinary ease of use, so we put it to work in real-life.

    We based our story around the character of a full-time professional / part-time coach, switching between third and first-person perspectives. To do this we built a custom "iCamera" rig to track the app while our actor was on the move.

    Oh, and casting a team of American-looking teenagers in Hong Kong during the summer holidays was not the least of our challenges...

    How could we turn a classic case of corporate need into a piece of entertainment?
    How could we engage an audience of existing customers with the details of the whole of La Rose Noire's processes?
    We turned the story upside down! Instead of highlighting the positive points of production, we lead the audience into a dramatic exploration of LRN operations from the perspective of hired investigators.
    For what was a rather dark movie, we had to come up with a positive resolution to ensure the audience came away informed and satisfied.

    AsiaSat was launching their new corporate branding initiative, and needed a video to broadcast their revamped identity and reaffirm their business positioning.

    Shot in 4K/Ultra HD over just a few days, we were particularly challenged by consistently bad weather over Hong Kong, so the time-lapse involved a lot of composition magic to look glorious.

    For this Fall/Winter 2013 and third installment of One Central Macau‘s promotion movie following Gaile Lai and Donnie Yen, it was no less impressive to work with Mainland China’s Megastar, Huang Xiao Ming.

    A renowned actor, singer and model with over 20 Millions followers on Weibo, brand ambassador for Tissot and ridiculously good looking, Huang Xiao Ming turned out to be very friendly and easy to work with. This was crucial as the whole movie was shot in just half a day since we had to share time with the photographer and keep the excited fans at bay.

    But as Huang Xiao Ming played the game, reacting very positively to our direction, we were able to wrap the whole movie just in time for sunset on the One Central Macau promenade.

    2014

    Being nominated in 3 categories at the prestigious the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) 2014 Annual Awards is quite an achievement, but this was only the beginning for Knight Frank because they only had days to piece together their 45-second video submission per category nomination.

    We got a call just a week before Chinese New Year. That’s right; THE Chinese New Year that paralyses the entire region for a full week. By experience we knew that submissions would be judged on hard facts contained in the printed submission. However, we knew that we had to create something fresh and bold for the fastidious jury panel. Moreover, win or lose, we wanted the videos to steal the show!

    So we proposed to intertwine 3 athletic disciplines with the 3 categories in order to surprise, delight, and leave a long-lasting impression. It was a risky pitch, but we were pleasantly surprised to receive the full trust and creative support from KF.

    “Big thanks to you and your team in producing such high quality videos! We got two [out of three] of the awards nailed – Residential and the Professional Services. The videos were the talk of the town last night and we received big compliments in terms of our out-of-the-box presentation of our teams.”

    Chef Umberto Bombana tells us about culinary inspiration, Marc Chagall’s painting, and stealing cherries…

    8½ Otto e Mezzo Bombana is an Italian restaurant in Alexandra House, Central. In 2012 it became the only Italian restaurant outside of Italy to receive 3 Michelin Stars.

    Classic Fine Foods is the market leading importer and distributor of fine ingredients, serving the vast majority of five-star hotels and high-end restaurants in Asia, with an expanding presence in the Middle East and Europe.

    To pay tribute to their favourite Chefs, CFF have started a “World’s Top Chefs series”, with a first movie about Alvin Leung from Bo Innovation.

    Creating a second installment for this series was a challenge for us as we wanted to take a different approach, maintaining the same level of quality and consistency required to build a series.

    Needless to say, we had a lot of fun creating this video! We will let you be the judge: if you watch this video and your taste buds do not respond, either you've just eaten or we failed.

    We would like to thanks Opera Gallery Hong Kong for their support.

    Doing Business in Asia

    2010

    A 3-minute compilation of 9 movies that Filmages produced for UK Trade & Investment’s “Business Opportunities in Asia-Pacific” campaign.

    Our challenge was that we had only 2 days to shoot in each country over a 4-week period. During this time we endured the rapidly changing Asian summer monsoon season. Surviving no less than 4 typhoons, we directed the interviews in a plethora of places, skillfully managing our shooting schedule throughout these chaotic conditions. 

    Additionally, editing each segment to promote the uniqueness of each country, finding 8 music tracks to match, whilst maintaining the overall consistency of the series was a tough nut to crack. Eventually, the entire post-production process for the 9 edits was then completed in 8 weeks.

    “Very passionate, creative and dedicated team with lots of ideas and suggestions. We are very pleased and impressed with the video teasers Filmages has done for us. Two thumbs up.” Meeta Dancel, Marketing Manager – UK Trade & Investment, Asia Pacific & South Africa

    2013

    HK Tramways was bought out in April 2011 by a French JV between RATP (the Parisian MTR) and Véolia Transportation. Most low income people were worried that foreign investment would take advantage and raise fares. The general public was also very worried about the future of their beloved Ding-Ding. So far the new management has been very respectful of the tradition and is doing its best to modernize the fleet whilst remaining the lowest travel fare in Hong Kong.

    With a limited budget and enormous logistical constraints due to the nature of the railways lines, Filmages chose to portray the evolution of the city and its architecture by following the same woman through 4 distinct eras:
    - Pre-WWII (1904-1945) with elegant Cheongsam or Qipao
    - The 50s and 60s, with the emergence of a growing female working force
    - The eccentric 70’s
    - Modern-day with a natural look with a touch of Chinese silk tradition.

    Special thanks to Charlot Kryza (Stylist), Jan (Model) & Jojo (Hair & Make-up)
    Another version of that movie was created for the Hong Kong Tramways 110th Anniversary

    Collaborating with the very talented illustrator Harry Harrison (SCMP, Wall Street Journal), we concentrated all our efforts on animating his two-dimensional drawings.

    We intially received them in black and white, then applied various composition tricks to bring elements of cinema to the illustrations. Additionally, we supplied the storyboards, sound effects and Scottish voice over.

    Two weeks, roughly 160 drawings and several coffee breaks later, we delivered a unique anniversary video for a private event hosted by Eventsman.

    Our ITX character is simple, yet tells a rather complex story with basic movements and facial expressions.
