2021 Stunt Puppy Shoot

2021 Stunt Puppy Shoot

Client: Stunt Puppy

Z

Completed: April 2021

Stunt Puppy approached us to work with them on a multi-day, multi-output shoot to capture their amazing doggy accessories. The project required some tricky angles, with underwater shooting being a key element.

Being dog owners and lovers of outdoor sports ourselves, this project was a very natural fit. We were even able to use our own pups within the varied talent pool of furry friends.

About Stunt Puppy

If you imagine your favourite outdoor brand teamed up with someone like Lululemon to make gear for dogs then you’d pretty much land right on top Stunt Puppy. Based in the belief that the best times we have with our dogs are when we are outside, doing stuff together every piece of gear is designed and built from the dog up, taking into account their anatomy, behaviour and physiology to create gear that’s light, comfortable, performance-oriented to keep dogs safe and happy wherever our adventures take them.

“Didn’t someone famous in film once say ’never work with children or animals’?

Thankfully for us Keith and Richie at 360nz missed that memo. Dogs, kids, boats, kayaks, SUPS, wind, water, dirt and all kinds of other chaos were thrown into this mix. With each shoot the images got more golden – literally as Raphie and Miro (their own dogs) became the stars of the show; and figuratively as Keith and Richie captured both the functional and emotional elements of our brand putting the design of the gear and the bond between man and dog front and centre in every shot.

This was our most ambitious shoot ever to get the kind of material for Float Doggy and the results speak for themselves. We are a primarily online brand and we’ve sold out of the product they shot for us twice this summer in the northern hemisphere. The gear, the skill, the perseverance, the on time delivery and the navigation of so many moving parts that 360 brought to this is remarkable and we are eternally grateful.”

Completed: Ongoing

Rolla-wipa have been engaging our services since early 2020, in multiple areas. Here at 360nz, we provide them on-going marketing support and e-commerce strategies, plus regular filming and editing services for their video campaigns.

Depending on the purpose of each video campaign, the client may ask us to film it professionally for them or they may shoot it themselves on their smartphone and ask us to edit it. These two levels of service work well for this client, who like to use a balance of consumer-style and professional imagery in their marketing.

About Rolla-wipa

Fed up with spending hours cleaning roller sleeves for over 30 years as a professional painter, and worried about watching so much paint literally go down the drain, Brett Stanley knew there was a better way to clean up.

Brett then designed and manufactured his unique 3-in-1 painter’s tool which effectively removes paint from roller sleeves, whilst acting as a handy paint tin opener and stirring stick that gets into the corners of the tin.

It just so happened that we were in the Whangamata area on another project around the time of the 2021 Repco Beach Hop, so we reached out to Destination Coromandel and used our down days to shoot this extraordinary event.

Destination Coromandel asked us to capture the human side of the event, with both still photography and video.

Queenstown Lakes District Council approached us to create a documentary-style short film to showcase their waste minimisation initiatives for the Lakeview Development project in central Queenstown.

The shoot required a specific schedule over a one month period to work in with the key presenters. The main purpose of the film was reporting to stakeholders and other councils.

About Lakeview Development

The deconstruction phase of the Lakeview Development presented an opportunity for QLDC to demonstrate leadership in minimising waste during a major project. By incorporating clear waste minimisation objectives into the tender process and selecting an experienced contractor able to deliver on these objectives, the project has resulted in over 86% of material diverted from landfill through reuse and recycling initiatives – an outstanding result and a story worth telling.

“It was an absolute pleasure working with Keith and Richie from 360 New Zealand on the production of the Lakeview Deconstruction video.

These guys are highly professional, experienced, organised, creative, and their proactive approach allowed for the capture of come great footage to support our key messages.

They really took on board what we wanted to achieve and helped guide the project by making some fantastic suggestions prior to filming, on-set, and with the video editing. The final output exceeded our expectations and has been a real asset for Council to use in conversations with the industry.

I would certainly recommend the 360 New Zealand team.”

Completed: August 2019

Following on from the success of our previous projects with Drowning Prevention Auckland, the DPA team chose to focus the next project towards those involved in Māori community activities in the Auckland region.

This included filming three educational videos covering the topics of Diving for Kai, Net Fishing and Waka Ama. All the videos were presented by Clayton from DPA in Te Reo Māori (Māori language).

This was followed by the creation of a new e-learning course with three modules, covering the same topics above. With some Te Reo Māori language skills in-house, we were able to deliver a draft version of the content for the courses in Te Reo Māori before using an expert to polish up the final version.

Client: Aomori Spring Ski Resort, Japan

Completed: February 2018

As part of an on-going relationship with Aomori Spring in Japan, we spent the first two weeks of February 2018 on a contracted shoot at the resort, working with numerous professional freeskiers and snowboarders.

With the 2018 Winter Olympics being within one short flight from Aomori Airport, a number of teams chose Aomori Spring as their pre-Olympic “wellness” camp location. This included the Finnish and German Snowboard Teams, the US Freeski Halfpipe Team and a few other American athletes like Louie Vito and Chloe Kim.

With so much talent riding at the resort at the same time, Aomori Spring’s management chose to enlist our services to shoot on-spec action photography and videography with the available athletes. We also shot portraits of every visiting athlete to be printed and hung in the lobby at the Rockwood Hotel.

The majority of digitally published content was used throughout both the resort’s and athlete’s social media streams, with a big focus on Instagram. As a result, most of the produced edits were less than one minute in length, with the exception of the video below.
