The Octopus Ride

Post by Bobby C » Thu Sep 02, 2010 10:26 am

We are looking to shoot a TVC using an Octopus ride for a new campaign for an exciting new confectionery called "Carnival". Happy to pay for the ride and hoping to get it in a country show type setting for background footage and vision. Can anyone out there help?

good stuff, pretty flexible can be vic, sa or nsw. But will need time to assemble cast, crew etc. What did you have in mind? You can PM me if you like?

because of the script and the tag, but including other rides too. but at this rate might have to rewrite the whole thing. we have $20K budget for rides and extras but no noise from anyone, crazy.

This is going a few years ago,
but there was an octopus ride that made an apperance
to the Yilgarn Show (Southern Cross) back in 1997 along with the Super Trooper.

Does anyone know what showman owns it, and whether it still does regional circuits still?
