Last year we had the pleasure of working with the Chanel team twice. They were preparing a video for their new amazing cream the Blue Serum, that brings elements from the world's blue zone into one cream that leaves your face looking amazing ( you can check it out here: www.chanel.com/en_MY/fragrance-beauty/skincare/c/blue-serum.html
From Costa Rica they use the essential oils of coffee, in the Peninsula of Nicoya where people leaves over 100 years old. The reason why this is a blue zone has been in discussion for many years, but in general terms everyone agrees it has to do with both their active lifestyle and their diet. We did a tv show with Jamie Oliver about this subject too, which we will post about later.
Going back to this project, we had a lot of fun. The crew, both from Chanel and the production company Suffraggettes was incredible nice and fun to work with, and we met beautiful people in the coffee plantations area, that actually accommodated us as it is. a very remote location. So not only everyone got amazing images, they also left with a very nice memory and experience the life in this kind of rural areas.
The crew as small and flexible, perfect for this kind of location: Director, Director of Photography, Assistant Camera, Executive Producer and the two Chanel representatives. From the Costa Rica team Costa Rica Filming Locations provided the local production services/ fixer , gaffer and production assistants and drivers.
We were very happy when we saw how great it ended up looking, have a look at it and enjoy:
