Seven Sunday Films and JWT Jakarta give a cinematic view into Indonesian culture + lifestyle

DJI Sam Soe_1.jpgDJI Sam Soe_2.jpgCombine the sheer beauty of Indonesia, cinematic shots of the culture and way of life over 18,000 islands and you get this visually stunning piece for Dji Sam Soe's latest by agency JWT.  Directed by Jan Wentz and produced by Seven Sunday Films, "True Indonesian Soul" delves into the country's urbanity and takes you on a spectacular, spiritual journey.

This impressive spot opens by panning over the vast horizon of Indonesia's scattered islands and diving head first into their culture.  Ranging from the beautiful beaches and mountains to tribal gatherings to the intricate craft of carving wood, this spot proves that what Indonesia offers knows no bounds.

"I think everyone needs to experience Indonesia for themselves, as there are so many unexplored locations that can enrich any production.  This project was physically tough with traveling to capture all the shots, but the production support from Seven Sunday Films was incredible.  Working with them was an absolute pleasure as they made every aspect of the shoot effortless and fun!" says director, Jan Wentz.

Gil Kenny, Producer from Quad, Paris said, "Indonesia's incredible scenery and level of professionalism delivered by the crew really made my experience great.  Seven Sunday's also ensured that production ran smoothly despite the tough logistics."
