Production Service in Ivory Coast

Tasked to kickstart Magnum’s 2025 Cocoa Strategy to empower women in cocoa farming communities of Ivory Coast, LOLA MullenLowe called on PSN to locally execute a comprehensive list of deliverables under remote direction while minimizing environmental impact. 

“The cocoa fields located in the rural areas of Ivory Coast are undoubtedly one of the most spectacular but also complex destinations we have ever had to shoot in,” writes Oscar Fernandez-Baca, Account Director for Magnum, Lola MullenLowe.

“We wouldn’t have been able to put this together without PSN’s expertise, on ground and local know how and diligence,” adds Head of Production Lola MullenLowe, Felipe Calviño. “To be able to help support and empower Ivorian women is a reward in itself but the groundwork required to put together the film and assets was just as fulfilling.”

The resulting portraits of more than 100 women farmers provide the invaluable authenticity on which AI was employed to create the very first digital brand ambassador, AWA. Ivorian designer, Rebecca Zoro, dresses her with a limited line of fashion accessories on sale here to generate funds that will be invested 100% into local cocoa farming communities.

“The campaign’s success would not have been possible without PSN’s incredible work,” concludes the Magnum Account Director. “Huge thanks to them and to all the production partners involved. We will definitely count on PSN for future trips.”
