Location: Ibiza. Year of Production: 2013.
The brief: To produce a behind the scenes music montage for top London agency MOT Models. The assignment was filming models on location in Ibiza for the duration of the promotional shoot for their Rainbow Campaign.
We spent three days filming models at this famous Mediterranean beauty spot and edited the film back in England at VSI TV’s production suite in Marlow. It was a three-day shoot that began with an exhaustive scouting trip round Ibiza in order to find the best locations for filming. On the third largest of the Balearic Islands, this was an endurance test on day one.
The biggest challenge when we began filming models was keeping the equipment from overheating during long sessions in extreme temperatures at locations where there was minimal shade.
