YLO is highly qualified in arranging the correct legal permits and paperwork needed to work with any of our road locations. These are so monotonous and time consuming – we know! Our main goal is to make these processes as painless as possible from the beginning to the end of your production schedule. This is what lays the solid foundation for producing TVC commercials that capture the soul purpose of your camping gear or clothing line. Our rapport with the local industry suppliers build onto this strong foundation which allows us to bind key elements together to offer an effortless production all round and express the authenticity of your outdoor clothing range.
The key to establishing world class films or TVC commercials is defined in one simple word – Location. The YLO team makes this tedious search an exciting one! From the first step of nailing down those perfect road locations, to managing them, along with the tight work schedules we all know too well, YLO will be there. We work with leading road location agencies in Cape Town, to turn your vision board into a reality. The locations we have to work with range from gravel roads for the rough terrains that highlight your camping gear range, to the urban road locations that offer a natural surrounding to enhance your new urban wear line. To have the support of a production company that offers a wide range of locations within one category and has the management skills to manage the legalities of it all, is a vital component. YLO’s expertise ranges far beyond this need.
Roads can often be a tricky location due to the legalities and permits needed to shoot there. This is certainly where YLO and the team offered their efficient expertise in getting it all done for us! The entire shoot was uncomplicated, assisting in capturing the road content we needed. Don’t underestimate road locations, the scenery it comes with might be exactly what you need.
Our road location was near to the coastal dunes and gave a distinctive flair to our footage. Even though the road was still in use, an isolated view emanated from the sand that had blown across it. This was well suited to the context of our footage. It is one of our favourite road locations to use!
We worked with some secluded gravel road locations and they completely fulfilled our brief. The environment and landscapes were withered and dry with many shades of brown and greens meshed into one another. I would recommend these road locations to highlight an outdoor gear or clothing range. It certainly created a “hiking in the outback” outline for our shoot. We loved it!
The road location we used had a variety of natural beauty around it to bring the road from just a simple one to a scenic one. There was a body of water beneath it and surrounding mountain ranges to provide contrasting backgrounds. This gave us options when it came to deciding the final products. We would recommend this location without a doubt!
