Brief Explanation

In this official trailer for the new movie “DUNDEE”, Brian Dundee (played by Danny McBride) and Wally Jr (played by Chris Hemsworth) embark on an incredible adventure around the whole of Australia. Midway through they explore a beautiful beach, where Wally Jr. points out that Australia has “37,000 miles of pristine, beautiful beaches.” Next, they discover some amazing wineries, where Wally Jr. points out that “Australia makes some of the finest wines in the entire world.” Finally, we see them dining at a world-class restaurant. Suddenly, it becomes obvious to Danny that he isn’t in a movie - he’s actually in a tourism ad for Australia. Chris confirms this and quickly reminds Danny that even though it’s not a real movie, they still had the best vacation ever. Danny wholeheartedly agrees and we see a wonderful montage of them having the time of their lives at other locations in Australia.

Execution

The combination of shooting with different units and doubles for cast where possible, the remoteness of locations and limited travel times all presented challenges. The great script by Droga5 was brought to life with a certain production value that needed to look as though Hollywood had played a part in the making of it. This meant that all aspects had to be covered quickly but with finesse. The key aspects of a feature film such as the cinematography, wardrobe, production design and an all-star cast had to be achieved and covered extremely quickly to mold an effortless and convincing trailer as well as showcasing the beauty of the Australian landscape.
