One of our favorite international clients recently flew to LA to create a 50th anniversary campaign for Duke India‘s fashion brand. SlickforceStudio produced the “California Dreamin” campaign, which was shot over two days.
Day One took place at our favorite playground in the Mojave desert, Ultimate Graveyard, where the models posed on vintage vehicles, built burning campfires, climbed inside plane shells, and danced along the railroad tracks.
See the 60-second commercial above, and behind-the-scenes images below. Congrats to Duke India on 50 years of success!
We received a call from our frequent renter RocketJump, who was collaborating with Loot Crate, for their latest Crate theme release. For this production, they needed a big desert location and wanted to know if they could blow up a car on our property. We’ve had other shoots with big fire effects before (check out The Dance’s“Cheers” video), so we gave the go ahead and helped them secure the proper permits, Fire Safety Officer and Water truck.
With an amazing help from Special Effects Coordinator Tom Ceglia and his team, the explosion went off perfectly and the clients were thrilled.
If you have a production in need of a location that can accommodate special effects or other special needs, contact us. Also, follow us on Instagram to see what’s new at @UltimateGraveyard.
Check out the final video and behind-the-scenes:

In Issue 3 of WMB 3D: World’s Most Beautiful, photographer Nick Saglimbeni brought two of his favorite rising starlets out to UltimateGraveyard for an apocalyptic shoot-to-remember. Kendall and Kylie Jenner’s fashion feature was styled by the insanely talented Monica Rose, who found the perfect pieces to complement the decaying location.
