SPICE – “Everybody Needs A Little”; a new iKind Media-produced commercial for Durban-based Club Leisure Group was released earlier this month into the European market. The exceptional SPICE Vacation Exchange Package offers members a selection of over 4000 luxury resorts across 100 countries and is powered by RCI, the world’s leading vacation exchange company.

RCI, a division of the Wyndham Worldwide, has over 35 years’ experience in the vacation industry and has an unparalleled reputation for quality and service. Wyndham Worldwide is one of the world’s largest hospitality companies and includes well known international brands such as Avis, Ramada, Travelodge, Howard Johnson, Blakes, and Budget.

The varied and intense shooting schedule for this challenging project had the iKind Media production team scouring Durban for the most intriguing and exotic locations the city has to offer, whilst maintaining a distict European “look and feel”. Locations ranged from breathtaking sunrises on the unspoilt beaches of Ballito to romantic sunsets in the quant canals of the Durban Point Waterfront.

Post-production saw the iKind Media team’s creative integration of local footage with existing film as well as the composition of a powerful soundtrack to complete a world-class product.

A special thanks to an exceptional cast who endured the rigorous shooting schedule, as well as to La Montagne Luxury Resort & Spa for their generosity and hospitality during shooting in Ballito.
