PZ Cussons 125

Portfolio, Productions No Comments

A 22 minute film to commemorate the 125th anniversary of the founding of PZ Cussons plc – most famous (in the UK) for its Imperial Leather soap.

Our brief was to position The Group in the context of its history, yet show its current wide geographical spread.

To recreate a Trading Post in 19th Century Africa we created an atmospheric set with some amazing props. As this was being shot, our tireless Art Department was also building a complete 1940’s lab next to it. You’ll see both of these featured in the film. Also, our wardrobe and make-up people surpassed themselves with their attention to detail to create some truly memorable scenes.

The later shots in the film – the ones from around the world (the UK, Greece, Nigeria, Thailand and Indonesia) were also filmed by SPL – all in high definition. On a whistle-stop tour of several territories on one eleven-day shoot we took 8 flights including two overnights!

At SPL Communications we have a great deal of expertise in setting up shoots all over the world – as well as in our own backyard! If your organisation requires location filming why not contact us for a quote? Just use the Contact Form and we’ll be right back to you!
