Project Description

A fast-growing international airline with one of the youngest fleets in the sky and more than 400 awards for excellence worldwide.

The Challenge

We were commissioned to film the latest Emirates Boeing 777 making it’s maiden voyage to King Shaka Airport in Durban. The event was to celebrate the launch of both the new plane as well as the new first class cabin.

The Result

In the same way you break a bottle of champagne on the bow of a new boat to christen it, when it comes to a 777, tradition is that the plane must taxi through a water tunnel fired from the airports fire trucks. In addition to filming this epic scene we also filmed within the airport at the checkin area’s welcoming the new clients to first class as well as the planes new loading facilities. The event was well organised which made the entire project a really fun experience! An example of how Halo Media is able to produce an event video that requires a different approach.
