We were approached by the Newcast team at Zenith Optimedia to create a 3 minute television event for Nestle’s new Kit Kat Chunky 3 range.
After collaborating with Chieftains Communications to detail the direction of the project and the stunt, a storyboard was created for the shoot. We then partnered with the agencies from the pre-production phase and provided complete production and post-production services.
There were no shortage of challenges and considerations as we were tasked with creating and capturing a dramatic story in the lead up to a death-defying live stunt as our hero was taken from his workplace, shot off a cliff on a flying fox, and landed in a moving speedboat down below!
Eight cameras covered the stunt as follows:
2 x Canon 5D cameras,
2 x Sony EX3’s,
4 x Full HD Mounted Go-Pros.
Our primary cameras captured great footage from all angles both close and wide, whilst our four GoPro units were mounted on the talent’s helmet, our speedboat, and the nose of our two jet-skis.
With only limited suitable tidal conditions, and being in a valley at Woronora we also had to make sure we had everything covered before the sun ducked behind the valley wall for the day. Thanks to great organisers and a talented stunt team we managed to capture the perfect shots we were looking for.
The final three minute piece of content was played as an advertised event on the Go! Channel on Sunday night television, before going online.
Our thanks to Nestle’s exec team for letting it go ahead!
