Post production ‘great’

By David Rak

Nagambie Post Office is being beamed into homes around the country and the world.

The small post office is being featured in an advertising campaign by Australia Post that has been seen by people around the country and a few in New Zealand.

Localised versions of the commercial featuring Nagambie residents speaking about the post office are also being shown on social media.

Licensees Andrew and Alison Biggs were proud to have the post office featured but said filming on March 30 was a whirlwind experience.

‘‘We were still running the store as normal while the filming took place,’’ Mr Biggs said.

‘‘Two windows had to be taken out to get the cameras in and there were people all over the place.

‘‘We had makeup and hair being done in the office and people hanging off ladders in the shop. It was very disruptive at the time but a great experience looking back.

‘‘Thankfully our customers were very understanding, and it didn’t worry them at all.’’

Mr Biggs said he was pleased to have the commercial highlight the importance of the post office to the community.

‘‘The idea was to show how the post office provides services country people need and I think it did that well,’’ he said.

‘‘More filming is planned in the next couple of weeks. It will focus on community groups that use the post office.’’
