Top Banana was set a time crunching challenge to deliver a conference opening film for global beauty brand Oriflame, which was to be aired at their annual conference by the global team to celebrate their 50 year anniversary...

The request came in 9 working days before the Christmas break, with a deadline on January 3rd for the first cut, so, we pulled together creative concept, script, casting, location sourcing, crewing, filming permits and managed to shoot the entire film in 2 days the week before the festive break. Shot in London, we filmed with a small and agile crew of director, Director of Photography, assistant, producer, HMUA and model. Multiple locations were used to create the full effect, including along the Thames, cafes, a house and multiple street locations. Editing was completed over the Christmas holiday including after Effects and music mix. After minimal changes by the Oriflame Head Office team in Stockholm, we were able to deliver the film on time and even completed 10 short social media edits! The client was over the moon with the results and incredibly complimentary about the service, saying that their CEO was delighted to personally introduce the film at the event... “Great communication from the very start and fully understood our specific needs whilst also bringing their expertise to create a finished product we are extremely proud to share. We had a short deadline for our project and the service we received from Ian and his team to develop the film in time to such a high standard was fantastic. Would highly recommend!”
