ARGOS "Just Can't Wait." A Christmas production from the past.

Here's a look at one of the biggest holiday productions we've been a part of.  The production was produced by ROGUE films UK, created by CHI and Partners and Directed by MARK ZIBERT. The Argos campaign for Christmas 2015 was a monster of a production and we were over the moon to be involved. Filmed just below the Valle Nevado ski resort in Chile, South America.  This production was a perfect fit for us here at CWM. We were involved from the ground up.  Helping secure talent for skiing and snowboarding, consulting on terrain locations as well as getting a DOP credit for all the POV angles in the ad that we set up and filmed. Here are some behind the scenes photos and links of "JUST CAN'T WAIT" to check out. Enjoy!

 High Elevation expedition?  Kind of....  It's sunrise at the production camp-site. It was like a pop up village of the media kind.  Chile, South America.

 Inside the ZORB there was an actual stunt-man we sourced in Chile for the shoot.  They had this dummy in for the test day.

 A massive storm came in during this shoot.  It went from not enough snow to being too much! These tents were key in making it bearable.
