Qatar Airlines Commercial

By patrickjack84, Mar 30 2017 12:13PM

Hey Y'al!


So this blog gets neglected far too often. Just doing a quick update about a commercial I styled for Qatar Airlines to promote their new Business and upper class service.

We shot over four days completely on Green Screen, Stills and moving image.

There was a cast of 14. Obviously when working on Green Screen there are certain limitations – no green in the costumes for one! Also white is very difficult against green screen so avoid where possible. The client had requested white shirts for some of the business looks plus the biggest thing we had to contend with was the fact that a traditional Qatari mans dress is something called a thobe. It’s a completely white pull over robe, which has a shirt collar detail and cuffs. Its usually heavily starched and worn with a head dress- this is called a Kaffiya. This is also white. There are various ways this can be worn. Cobra style is my personal fave! White tends to reflect green and in the edit its hard for the editor to place backgrounds behind – so each frame has to be cut out! WORK! So hence why production are usually very keen to avoid white in costumes where possible.

Qatari Women usually wear something called an Abaya – this is a long black robe worn over their clothes. A hijab is worn to cover their hair and neck.

It was really interesting getting to research these looks and learn out to wrap a hijab and style a cobra.

Below are some images from final edits!
