Client
Auckland Unlimited is Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland’s economic and cultural agency. Committed to making Auckland region a desirable place to live, work, visit, invest and do business.
Requirements

Auckland Unlimited and the Michael Cassel Group wanted to create a video capturing  the iconic Disney character Rafiki singing the opening notes of the song ‘The Circle of Life’ atop Auckland’s Sky Tower highlighting Auckland city.

Solution

Filming on the outside of the 64th floor of the Sky Tower was always going to a high risk job.  We formed a meticulous team including Tony Monk (helicopter pilot ), Louise Spraggon and Jennifer Butcher (AD) . With our clear and concise way of communicating with our clients and stakeholders we were able to create an epic piece of film in an environment where everyone felt safe and supported.
