Two of my favourite things came together in this recent shoot for Kirin with the fine folk at Host, beer in a bottle and beer in glass, (and there was also a grey corner, but I don’t care about that as much).
That’s right, listen to Nonna,
or she’ll cut you.
Whilst most Nonna’s can be fierce, usually they have a softer side that comes out. Not this one, after a long day of shooting, barely able to stand, she was still threatening to kill her grandchildren if they didn’t fall into line; literally, she said she would kill them. She is not to be messed with.
See her up close and personal here.
Crates of rum, cane toads, a rather large spider, a dude in a big metal ‘hat’ and some guys in tiny metallic hot pants made for a few interesting days in the studio. Of course the rum has all been drunk, the spider and the cane toad are probably still hiding under a table or flat at Sun Studios, and the guys in the hot pants? I really couldn’t say.

Kids having fun eating juicy, messy food is most definitely a Stylist’s nightmare job. However, I have it on good authority that not a single wardrobe item was injured in pursuit of some candid moments on set recently for the Fresh Food People. A relieved Sophie Hart was seen leaving set post shoot in possession of a collection of unmarked wardrobe in pursuit of greater challenges.
If you haven’t had the pleasure of seeing one of Far North Queensland’s great resort hotels up close and personal, you really should make the effort. Lancemore Group’s Alamanda Resort is located in quiet, but stunningly beautiful Palm Cove, 30 mins north of Cairns, it’s literally paradise.
Shooting such a location of course is a dream, it’s pretty hard not to point your camera at something beautiful.
See the all moving awesomeness of food in motion in the brand new showreel from Jamie MacFadyen!
Watch in glee as things drip, ooze and glisten in glorious HD slow motion! Be amazed as music and images merge seamlessly to create rich visual content! And quiver in anticipation as the next fantastically appetising morsel flashes before your very eyes!
Food and hands.
Hands doing things with food.
Body-less arms reaching out to feed non existent mouths.
What more can I tell you about this other than, as always, expertly food styled by Ms. Sally Parker, and tastefully propped and dressed by Ms. Janai Anselmi and her very fine team.
