After a couple of weeks of much needed break over Christmas, we were excited to be starting the year afresh with a great experimental project for Koko Krunch. This was our first time to be shooting a full ‘point of view’ digital film and TVC where you will be able to click online whether you want to see the story from the child’s or mum’s point of view.
This shooting required special camera rigging to be made to be worn by the two main talents and as the specially designed helmets were quite heavy to be worn all day, we had to get body doubles for Anisa and Yudetra for shoot day.
We spent the morning chasing the sunrise as always with lots of kids in their school uniforms running around in our outdoor school scene, and were blessed that the sun made an appearance for us during rainy season in Jakarta.
The ever smiling and happy Yudetra was a pleasure to work with as our main talent

Our lovely talent agent, Priti, spent the day as Yudetra’s hand double due to her small frame and super cute hands and she even surprised us still being able to easily fit into an SD school uniform!

Our next scene was shot inside a school set where the kids drew and coloured in and had fun, while Priti sat in as the talent for the child’s point of view, and had her head swivelled up and down and side to side by Putra while wearing the heavy helmet camera gear.

While the shooting was going on outside, the hair and makeup team were having some fun giving Rengga from the talent agency a funny makeover and curling his long locks.

…and the finishing touch, bright pink lipstick!

Overall it was a great day of shooting and we learnt that the full face helmet was far too heavy to wear for long periods of time, and ended up using the lighter helmet and even took it off completely for Yudetra’s scenes, so it was easier for Putra to control while filming.
We look forward to sharing our behind the scenes video and final edited version of the Digital Online film with you shortly.
