When you are directing a three year old child who has never seen a large camera, let alone a film crew of fifty and a white man speaking a foreign tongue, one needs to tread carefully.
So instead of filming outside in a garden during the rainy season with all the challenges that it presents, we decided to build an entire garden and the edge of a house in a studio in south Jakarta.
And when it was time for the child to take a nap, so did the crew.
This is still one of my favourite ads I have had pleasure in directing. DoP Yadi Sugandi. Filmed on 35mm film.
