As we prepare for another few months of pre-production and planning for the 2016 Nelune Foundation Lilac Ball Feature Documentary, I thought it best to have a look back at the production of the 2015 piece.
Last September, attendees of the Nelune Lilac Ball were again urged to open their hearts and pockets to raise major dollars for the Foundation. As in 2014, No Pool Productions is involved in creating media content for Nelune, and happily donated our services in producing their Feature Video for the event, as well as several auction pieces played throughout the event.
The 2015 video was debuted to over 500 guests at the ball, and assisted in raising $2.16 million for The Nelune Foundation, and the ongoing construction of the Nelune Comprehensive Cancer Centre at Randwick’s Prince of Wales Hospital.
The team shot in several locations around Sydney, including Prince of Wales Hospital, St Vincents Hospital, as well as private residences of cancer patients and families. The piece was shot on a Sony PMW-F55, with a Fujinon 19-90mm T2.9 Cabrio Premier PL lens over a period of two weeks.
Throughout the production, producer & director, Ben Hasic, conducted some very emotional interviews with patients and family members during their cancer journey. Every year, this makes a big emotional impact on the entire crew.
Overall, the team is incredibly proud of the end product, and are so happy to see such generosity towards The Nelune Foundation and Cancer Research.
