EditorTVCs, News Make a Comment

AUCKLAND, Tuesday: Up-and-coming production company Southern Studios (based in Ellerslie) has launched a new brand campaign for New Zealand Sotheby’s International Realty.

Live Extraordinary, filmed across some of the country’s most spectacular landscapes, is now playing nationally on TV (streaming and on-demand) , Air NZ and throughout social/digital channels for the next four weeks.

Southern Studios’ brief was to showcase the brand. The campaign was created and produced in-house. The writer was Richard Loseby (ex Ogilvy & DDB).

The film, designed to appeal to buyers and sellers from around the world, blends elements of the founders’ story with luxurious properties and aspirational lifestyles.

“We’re no Flying Fish – but we are ambitious, and we’ve just released our best work to date.”

“For us at Southern Studios, this brand film means a lot,” said Southern Studios MD Geoff Holmes.

“We’re no Flying Fish but we are ambitious – and we’ve just released our best work to date.

“Over the past few years, we’ve been working our way up through the ad industry and to deliver this flagship piece is incredibly rewarding.

“We can’t wait to partner with more agencies as we align with and bolster our roster with new young guns and directors.”
