You know when you see an iconic sports star on the tele, you wonder what kind of person he or she would be? I thought that Rugby League legend Johnathan Thurston would be a nice bloke; humble, easy to talk to, down to earth.
I was spot on the money!!
Such a lovely guy. Queenslander of the Year, 2017, I believe and I can see why.
Well, we had 2 x 30 second TV commercials and a 60 second online video to shoot in Townsville, plus some drone aerials – all in two hours, give or take a minute or two.
Here is the first one we finished, with Johnathan and a bunch of kids who volunteered for the opportunity to be rubbing shoulders with a Rugby Rock Star.
None had been in front of a camera before.
We were all so happy with the result.
