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 Filmsâ€™ 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 â€œFairiesâ€? which was released theatrically in 3D.

The campaign reunited Harvest and Baker Smith with DDB Paris and client Bouyues, this time to shoot in Maltaâ€™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.
â€œIt was exhilarating to work on such a massive scale with such as exceptional team including true artists like Chris Soos and Herve Schnied,â€? says Director Baker Smith. â€œI loved having the opportunity to jump into 3D, not to mention enjoy the thrill of a high-intensity helicopter shoot.â€?
â€œWe pushed to get every ounce of creative energy on the screen with the highest production value available,â€? adds Harvest Films EP/Co-Founder Bonnie Goldfarb. â€œIt was incredibly fun, tremendously tiring and a welcome opportunity for everyone involved. We are very proud of the result.â€?
