BTS: Munich Filming

munich 2
Great time in Munich earlier this week shooting with the ‪Birdycam 2 and Sony ‪A7s‬, DJI Phantom 2 with gimbal and GoPro 4 for some great aerial shots, plus the Canon C300 and C100. We had a fantastic crew for this shoot and working with The Creative Grid is always a treat. We’re looking forward to sharing the final adverts when it’s all live.
For now, here’s a couple more videos from behind the scenes on the shoot:

Fear in a Handful of Dust


On the 3rd September 1916, Simon, an Englishman raised in India, and Buck, a ‘trench-rat’ from Ireland, are alone in the middle of the Battle of Guillemont. Trapped in a trench, one bleeds losing the threads of reality while the other must face the reality of the war. In order to survive the night they must learn not only to overcome the enemy, but also the stranger sitting next to them.

The gritty and visceral reality of the trenches comes to life in this new play which examines how war exposes the humanity in a man, rather than the monster.

Last week we filmed actors Jack Morris and Henry Regan as they re-enacted scenes from the play ‘Fear in a Handful of Dust’, written by Sevan K Greene and directed by Jonny Collis. Above are some stills from the footage which will be used in the trailer.
