U Mobile TV commercial Malaysia.
Fintan, my eight year old son, is presently in a TV commercial for U Mobile, the telecommunications provider, in Malaysia.
Fintan had a great time on the TV shoot particularly because the requirements of the shoot, were physical challenges, and he likes those. As you can see, from the film linked here:
Fintan had to dive bomb into a swimming pool and swim underwater. This, of course, required many takes to get it “just right” from the Director’s point of view. It was interesting to note Fintan’s unflagging enthusiasm, as he did take after take; underwater swim, after underwater swim. It seems to me, that he would be up for any physical challenge, on film, given a chance – he just enjoyed it so much.
If you observe carefully, you can see Tiarnan, five, in the shot, as well – though he is seen only fleetingly. There was much more footage than they eventually used. Indeed, there was enough footage of the boys at play in and around the pool, for the ad to be about them, alone.
This is Fintan’s first TV commercial, though he has been on film, before, in documentaries. I did not know, until I saw him at work, how much or whether he would enjoy it – but it was clear that he did. Thanks to Reservoir Productions for giving Fintan the chance to have a good day putting together a commercial.
Apparently, the commercial is running on all channels in Malaysia. Our contract stipulates a two year period, in which the U mobile commercial may run – so it might be around for some time to come.
Well done Fintan.
