G.A Brand Design Kuala Lumpur have recently completed a film to launch Rascal Republic – a dynamic portfolio of investments offering unique lifestyle experiences along with excellent financial returns.
Based out of Singapore, with projects spanning three continents, Rascal’s inimitable ‘experience-driven’ philosophy has given rise to projects in land and property development, luxury charters in the Indonesian archipelago, F&B franchises, and a global arbitration blockchain system, amongst others. The film brings to life the unique ‘money-can’t-buy’ nature of the experiences offered as part of Rascal Republic’s investments. Shot on location in Lombok, Komodo island and Raja Ampat in Indonesia, Singapore and in GA’s KL office in Malaysia, the film is the first in a series covering Rascal’s core projects.
Another film by GABD KL for Rascal marks the recent Conservation International expedition to Raja Ampat, supported by Rascal Voyages, the luxury charter business of Rascal Republic. The 30 metre, hand-crafted ironwood and teak ‘phinisi’ yacht, Rascal, is the first of its kind and represents a blend of the latest in Western boating technology with the very best in traditional Eastern craftsmanship. Rascal took a team of CI scientists, including world-renowned ichthyologist, Dr. Gerry Allen and Vice President of CI’s Asia Pacific Marine Program, Dr. Mark Erdmann, on a 7 day voyage covering remote parts of the Raja Ampat archipelago, reputed to be the planet’s epicentre of marine biodiversity. The expedition involved conservation monitoring; tagging a number of the region’s magnificent Manta Rays, and an exploration of the area’s marine biodiversity. Findings include the discovery of a new species of Gobi fish and the identification of a new Manta ray cleaning station. Rascal’s partnership with CI is part of the brand’s support in sustaining local communities and reducing the negative impact of tourism on the area.
