Working with Iris Worldwide’s Singapore office, we created a striking brand film showcasing the food and beverage offering of the luxury Sands Hotel in Marina Bay, Singapore.
Presented as one single shot, the film takes the viewer on a dizzying journey back and forth from front-of-house to behind the scenes at the hotel, showcasing the various elements that come together to bring the customer the perfect dining experience.
The film is the result of months of planning and comprises of eight motion control shots filmed on a series of stylised mini-sets. The camera constantly orbits around the table tops, transitioning us between each scene, in one continuous fluid motion. Finally, the camera pulls wider to reveal our protagonist in one of the Marina Bay Sands restaurants, which required a more elaborate, larger-scale set.
Specialist chefs and food stylists were also enlisted to create the ‘White Cosmopolitan’ cocktail, complete with orchid ice-ball, as well as the incredible ‘Sea Urchin and Caviar’ signature dish.
