Vicci is one of South Africa's top directors of photography, so the women involved were always going to look beautiful, but she focused on bringing out natural performances. "I wanted a real documentary feel of everyday reality," she says.

Platypus handled both the production and post production.

"I can honestly say there isn't a single aspect of the production that didn't meet and more often exceed client expectation," says Anthea Beylis, Union Swiss' TV producer. "The result was excellent creative execution of all the commercials and outstanding overall production value."

Founded in 1992, Platypus Productions is one of most established commercial production companies in Cape Town, but is enjoying a new lease on life since their Vodafone Zoo Zoo campaign became a global phenomenon.

Representing directors Ian Chuter, Prakash Varma, Vicci Turpin, Michael Buckley, Fiona Macpherson, and Renee van Reenen, Platypus offers a full-service creative solution for any board, from production to postproduction.
