Saatchi & Saatchi Arachnid, the creative agency for the project put together an all-star team that turned what was on the drawing board into reality. Starting with the stunt team, coordinator Raja Aris Dzulkifli gathered four stuntmen; BMX Freestyler, Fizzy; Extreme Pro Flyboarder, Shuk; Paramotor Pilot, Rizlan; and Base Jumper, Nasa.

The two-day shoot that took place in Putrajaya was not as smooth sailing as they hoped. “Whatever could go wrong, went wrong on the first day”, said Creative Director of Saatchi & Saatchi Arachnid, Kelvin Wong. Uncertainties and mishaps loomed the first day of production, even before the camera started rolling.

From gloomy weather to landing choppers. It however did not dampen their spirits. The production team, Creature Communications took it as a challenge and wrapped up the shoot in that two days as planned.

According to Director, Seelan Param, “Two days for this (production), theoretically it is impossible. But i’m surprised we managed to pull it off”. He also added, the most challenging part was trying to coordinate four stuntmen and the stunts.
