Director statement

" We worked closely with agency Future Strategy Club and Zoetis to capture all the key messaging in 30 seconds which was a challenge. However because we had the prep time to get the script and messaging right, we did it. Working with pets and children is always a roll of the dice but we limited that risk through the diligent prep work before hand; selecting the right cast and of course crew. You need a calm and easy going film set to get that natural performance from our child and cat. It has to be fun for them.
What could have been hard, was actually because of the whole team, a joy to be involved in. "
