Harvest’s Baker Smith Directs “Fairies,� “Rescue� and “Bear� for France’s Bouygues Telecom

Fairies, a suspenseful water rescue and a raging bear are highlights of the epic campaign for Bouygues Telecom co-produced by Harvest and Wanda for DDB Paris. Harvest Films’ director Baker Smith collaborated with masterful DP Chris Soos, accomplished editor Herve Schneid (Amelie, City of Lost Children) and the visual effects artists at BUF to craft a campaign that includes the whimsical “Fairies� which was released theatrically in 3D.

The campaign reunited Harvest and Baker Smith with DDB Paris and client Bouyues, this time to shoot in Malta’s famous MFS water tank and on location in and around Prague. Extensive preproduction for the 3D shoot and the orchestration of a multilingual production were just a few key aspects of the international project.

“It was exhilarating to work on such a massive scale with such as exceptional team including true artists like Chris Soos and Herve Schnied,� says Director Baker Smith. “I loved having the opportunity to jump into 3D, not to mention enjoy the thrill of a high-intensity helicopter shoot.�

“We pushed to get every ounce of creative energy on the screen with the highest production value available,� adds Harvest Films EP/Co-Founder Bonnie Goldfarb. “It was incredibly fun, tremendously tiring and a welcome opportunity for everyone involved. We are very proud of the result.�
