Director David Gaddie of production company The Colony recently lensed a spot for Coke’s new ‘Mother’ beverage. With the target market being everyday ‘blokes,’ the spot takes place in “Motherland” - a place that celebrates sizzling steaks, epic explosions, and shooting guns with abandon. Gaddie lensed the footage on location at an old rail yard in Sydney Australia using built set pieces that were later enhanced in post production. The explosions are all real and in-camera though - The Colony loves pyro! Second unit was shot in Coney Island, New York and LA theme parks.
This professional campaign titled 'Motherland' was published in Australia in April, 2010. It was created for the brand: Mother, by ad agency: Smart. This Film medium campaign is related to the Soft Drinks industry and contains no media assets. It was submitted over 12 years ago.
