Martini Royale Commercial
I was invited to film the latest commercial for Martini Royale. I was cast as a lead character, set to be playing opposite a talented young actor called Guilherme. I was to play his on screen partner.
The concept of the piece was that a young couple on a glamorous night out get invited one by one behind the bar to make their ‘perfect’ drink. The bar goes, so excited by the drinks thats the couple make decide that they also want the Martini experience and by the end of the evening everyone is drinking Martini.
Although a typical drinks commercial, with the emphasis on the products, it was important to capture the vibe and spirit of the evening, whilst still being true to the moment. Guilherme was easy to work with and gave me great reaction and attention during all my scenes. The lead couple playing the bar staff were also fun and well cast.
The only thing was, that the Martini representative was on set and he wanted us to really drink the drinks – so by the end of the day (having drunk Martini from 10am) I was feeling rather tipsy! I woke up with a headache the next day which was a first for after set experience!
