Hanuman Films worked on the first major international commercial to be shot at Angkor Wat for Dragonair, the regional wing of Hong Kong’s national carrier Cathay Pacific. Hanuman has since gone on to work on many important commercials for UK and US partners, including Radical Media. Our portfolio of clients includes some major global players such as Pepsi, Cisco, TUI Travel and Toms. We have worked with some major international commercial directors such as Tarsem Singh, the award-winning director of REM’s Losing My Religion video. More recently in 2012, we collaborated with Toms Shoes and Toms Eyewear for their 2013 Catalogue, shot entirely on location in Cambodia. In 2013, we once again teamed up with Radical Media to shoot a top jewellery TVC for leading Hong Kong company Chai Tai Fook. We also worked with leading international beer Heineken on their cutting edge ‘Dropped’ commercial in Cambodia that saw a blindfolded contestant dropped in the Cambodian jungle and have to navigate his way back to Phnom Penh on a giant yellow duck.
It is relatively straightforward and very cost effective to shoot a commercial in the Mekong region, particularly in Cambodia. Attainable permissions, flexible budgets, experienced local support crew, international standard equipment and unexplored locations add up to make the Mekong region a must for pioneering commercial directors.
