Earlier in the month, one of our clients threw us a logistical challenge for a consultancy brand video. Key consultants were to be filmed on green screen in two locations, Utrecht and Paris. And we had just three days to set it all up!

Luckily, we’ve filmed in the Netherlands before, and have an agency we collaborate with over there. The Paris location was a greater challenge because we were filming the day before the Cannes Festivals started. Camera kit was scarce as it was all heading south for the biggest film event outside of the Oscars.

It was a busy two days. When we got to the client site in Paris, the room we were decorating had these fantastic art nouveau windows, advertising everything from beer to bikes to theatre shows. It was a shame the shoot was done against green screen and we couldn’t use them!
