Description: The Disney Hotstar film was the most talked about film at the start of the lock down.
Shooting kids are always the toughest shoots, shooting kids remotely while briefing their parents over a zoom call is a whole new level of direction.

This entire film was done remotely and was the first of its kind. It involved casting 60 different kids, shortlisting them, teaching all their parents how to while keeping the camera steady, unlike the other lockdown films which were static. The preparation for this shoot was intense, we did a recee in every kid's house to see the best locations and the amount of light. Every child was briefed and given a specific action to do. The shoot happened with the director on a call via whatsapp and zoom with both the kids and their parents. It happened in 4 different continents, from America to Europe to Dubai to India to Hongkong and finally New Zealand & Australia.

The amount of footage we had was enormous, the edit was done to bring out the madness in the idea and then finally did a track which was not only crazy but stuck out at this time.

This was the first ad during the lockdown which made people happy and gave them something to smile about.
