Endemol Shine, producers of Big Brother, Deal or No Deal, One Born Every Minute, MasterChef and many other top shows, were recently commissioned to film flying adventures for Coca-Cola’s CokeTV. I was lucky enough to be involved in the shoot as part of the film crew, working with Aerobatic Tactics who were providing the flights.
Featuring YouTube stars, Jake and Manny, this short entertainment feature produced exclusively for Coca-Cola’s prolific UK online channel demonstrated the very literal ups and downs of the pair’s extreme experiences throughout the day. To date, the end result has been view almost 2.2 million times on Facebook and thousands more on YouTube.
My role was to film a series of wing walk flights and an aerobatics flight, both from the ground and using seven GoPros, mounted inside the aircraft and on the wing walkers’ clothes. The footage turned out well, and in combination with the interviews, cutaways and excellent and dynamic edit, made for a great video.
