Diner’s Club, in collaboration with the World’s 50 Best company, sponsored Asia’s Best Restaurant’s event in Bangkok, Thailand. The client wanted us to capture the event and additional content on a very limited budget. Luckily the dollar goes pretty far in Thailand. After weighing options, I partnered with a young DP in our internal productions department, and, as a two-man team, took off for Thailand to capture the event and b-roll around Bangkok. The client requested the highlight reel go live within 48 hours, so we transitioned from a production team to a post-production team in our Bangkok hotel suites post-event. We delivered this video before we flew back to the states.
The two-man model worked so well, that FCB positioned us as a production option to client projects that require a bare-bone approach.
