Award winning film-maker Frank E. Flowers was recently on island filming new commercials for Flowers bottled water with a 100 percent local cast.
Mr. Flowers said it’s the first time he has ever worked with this many Caymanians on a production. He was joined by other local film makers including Badir Awe who said it was the most professional cast he has ever worked with.
We caught up with Mr. Flowers on Skype who said the intensity which the crew members brought to the set was enough to rival the work he has seen in the United States.
“It was that kind of dedication, no complaining, the enthusiasm, the excitement it was really, it’s something you don’t see a lot of even on film sets in the States that sort of level of excitement of genuine like, we’re happy to be here, we’re happy to put in the work,” Mr. Flowers said.
Caymanian film-maker Badir Awe said the professionalism which the crew members brought to the film set makes him confident enough to recommend many of them to international film-makers.
“If we can handle this set at this level we can handle more professional sets on professional levels when they come to Cayman we can offer them crew members that we’re confident they’ll be able to speak to and work with,” Mr. Awe said.
The final productions is expected to air locally next year January.
