There’s a lot time and planning that goes into shooting a Cato TV Commercial, but there is also a lot of fun had on set. Come behind the scenes with us as we give you a glimpse into a day on set with Cato.

8:00am: Time for coffee!
Once everyone has had their first cup of coffee, it is time to set up and start the day! The lighting, sound and camera crews prepare the sets for an eventful day ahead. The styling team prepares each outfit for its moment in the spotlight, while the hair and make-up artists pamper the actress and model.

Filming is in full swing with our entire crew ready to make it perfect. Take by take, full concentration is on our actress and model. This is where the crew can see what works and what doesn’t, so they can adjust accordingly.
