We’ve had some impressive corporate events and TVCs shoot at the Studios this year. Holden Astra vs Drones TVC and integrated campaign shot here only weeks ago and is already ‘hovering around’ on the web and TV sets. Earlier Volvo hosted a rather luxe launch of the VolvoXC90 https://instagram.com/p/3OgLfwODyO/ in stage 4 and for another car company stage 1 was transformed into Melbourne’s Mini Garage and pop-up cinema. The latter incorporated 25 new Mini 5-door hatches, food vans, 250 Mini fanatics and VIPs who converged for the launch night. Check out the video and great time lapse of the stage set-up for Mini Garage.
