One of the highlights of the Edinburgh winter calendar is the Giant Lanterns of China, an epic display of stunning lanterns hosted by the brilliant Edinburgh Zoo. The theme this year was the enchanting Myths and Legends of China but also with a few cameos from our own Nessie and a horde of Haggis! (Must be seen to be believed.)
We were delighted to produce the TV and cinema advert for this exhibition, which ran for several months on STV and cinemas across the region.
Working closely with Flock Creative agency, we oversaw a late night shoot at the zoo to show off the lanterns at their brightest. We also had super fun with a smoke machine and brilliant cast of young actors. Seeing it all come together on a cinema screen with a specially created dolby sound mix was a fantastic way to end the year. It even featured the first on-screen appearance of one of our producers!
If you haven’t ever visited the lanterns, be sure to look out for it next winter!
