Ballantines Whisky TV commercial commissioned by M&C Saatchi London for Ballantines Angola.
Shot on Location in Johannesburg, South Africa
Last year I was commissioned by M&C Saatchi London to direct a TV commercial for Ballantines whisky in Angola. We ended up with a piece shot in downtown Johannesburg, re-creating what I thought was a mad party on the streets on Luanda. It was windy and cold, but pulled of a sweaty, smoky and vibey 30 / 60 / 90 second TVC.
Here is the 30 Second version, I think its the most to the point out of all three.
