Lakelands by NEO

For those who don’t know, Neo‘s Ian Adams was a SWAT cop back in the UK. The best of the best. He has an unashamed, unabashed comedic quality about him, not dissimilar to the great Benny Hill. He can have fun with being sexist, taking it right up to the line with through self-deprecating sense […]

Ballin Downs. A’lysee’s Story

This marks the first time we’ve introduced a real human touch to a property film. This is A’lysse’s true Story.

I Love My Villa

Love My Villa. ‘Amalifi’ cost over $10 million to build. With that sort of price tag, in this sort of market, any type of marketing is going up hard against it.

The First Property ‘Short’ – Linnaeus

Pin sharp from front to back; every sky blue; each and every colour in the spectrum amped. Shadows brushed white, with radiating light; all lawns painted fresh-cut green. Today’s real estate photography – almost all real estate photography, including much of the material produced by this production house – has managed to remove itself from […]

In our world, cutting shorter is harder. It demands creativity and discipline. Any mug can throw together a […]
