Atol in the French Polynesia

Eco-Luxury in the Heart of the South Pacific

Film Production

In 1967, Marlon Brando purchased the island of Tetiaroa, 50 miles north of Tahiti and vowed to preserve it for future generations. A few decades later, The Brando was built as the world’s foremost sustainable eco-luxury resort, where innovative technologies enable carbon-neutral luxury for guests, and the resort operations fund grants for visiting environmental scientists and cultural researchers.

The Brando is one of several properties the Wallop has worked with on behalf of parent company, Pacific Beachcomber.

The Challenge

Wallop Film was brought in to tell the visual story of this unique luxury resort on French Polynesia’s breathtakingly beautiful private island of Tetiaroa – an exceptional eco-luxury resort on Marlon Brando’s private island. With access to the island by private plane, the resort features 35 villas on white-sand beaches frequented by sea turtles, manta rays and exotic birds. The resort was designed to reflect Polynesian lifestyles and culture.

We needed to tell a story of the property that would persuade prospective guests to fly halfway around the world to experience this one-of-a-kind resort because, believe us, it’s worth the trip.

The Results

The Wallop Film team spent ten days on Tetiaroa producing a series of short films, which included a stunning hero video which has amassed over 225k views, an eco-driven documentary, a video montage and a B2B sales video.

You might try to tell us that a place like The Brando sells itself, but you can not say for sure that Barack and Michelle didn’t book their post-Presidency, month-long writing retreat here because they were so impressed by the hero video.
