Caro Tapson Producer

The Godrej Darling Hair South Africa brand relaunch was a fun, and super crazy production to execute. The brief came in from my fabulous colleague Shannon Weber who knows that my forté is pulling off mad volumes of content in ridiculously limited timeframes. The preprod was 5 days in total prior to a 5 days shoot with 17 models, 2 video crews, 3 photographic crews and an infinite number of possible outputs. 

What made it even more crazy was the pure number of fabulous and inventive hair styles rocked by the beautiful models.
