Thomas Foods International

Brand Video

Imagine shooting in 11 cities in 12 days with 9 crew. Throw in 2 flat tyres,1 helicopter crash and Hurricane Sandy, and you’ve got the makings of a Thomas Foods International brand video.

KOJO shot everywhere from Nairne to New York. Hurricane Sandy’s presence in NYC made the team’s stay much tougher than they could have ever imagined. In fact, within 24 hours they lost access to all of their locations. Thanks Sandy. But whether it was queuing 2 hours for petrol in New Jersey, changing tyres in downtown Manhattan or begging store owners to let us shoot, there was no way that this production would be derailed.
