Interac Holiday Spot

Worked together with director duo Peter Martin on a Interac holiday commercial where the toy store comes to life to warn a customer away from using her credit card. We shot in a very quaint and charming toy store in the small town of Creemore Ontario. Working with only a single version of any one toy, we had to shoot all the toys as plate shots, and then the talented group at Smith took over and made them sing together. Peter and Martin wanted to ensure the spot was cinematic and graphic, so we chose to shoot anamorphic on Panavisino E-series, such incredible timeless lenses.

Key Crew was as follows:

  • 1st AC – Jay Vettese
  • Gaffer – Sami Hajjar
  • Key Grip – Lennon Shute
  • DIT – Randy Perry


  • CAM -Alexa XT 4:3
  • Lenses – Panavision E-series anamorphic lenses
