It’s always really special when you get to direct a star or celebrity. But like most of these productions, there are challenges.
This was a community service announcement to highlight the challenges truck drivers face after long hours behind the wheel during the grain harvest.
We had an hour to film 2 x 30 second commercials with World Champion boxer Danny Green as the talent.
All good.
The auto-cue helped.
Then off in my son James’ ute to shoot some overlay footage. His ute looks like a truck.
A few hours to edit, music track, done.
Top team effort. Many thanks to Annette from Rubis and Dave Elliot, Head of Colouring In, at Fuel. Dave also knew someone who knew someone else, who Danny. Danny’s father used to be a wheat farmer back in the day.
