I was lucky enough to be the 2nd Unit Director of Photography on this Carlsberg commercial for Shoot NZ

The commercial was Directed by Daniel Kleinman
from Rattling Stick. Danny is the most awarded Commercials Director in the world, and he was fantastic to work with. I am a fan of his work, and it was great to be on set with him.
The Director of Photography was Stephen Blackman
. He shot the aerials on a Red MX using a Super G.
The rest of the spot was shot on 35mm film. My shots were all on the snow, I used an Arri 435 with Angenieux Zooms, Kirsteen Green was the Focus Puller.
We shot on the Earnslaw Burn Glacier during summer. It was kinda odd to be in the snow in the middle of summer, but seeing the finished commercial made it very worthwhile. It's been a while since I have shot film in the snow - and I really enjoyed it!
