Hollyoaks brought us in to shoot a major stunt on the Ch4 serial drama involving a train crash and derailment. The objective was to add some motion and glimpses of the train as it hurtled along the track as well as two signature developing shots of the train after it’s derailment and offer an overhead perspective of the artists within the carriage as they ventured for their escape.
Broadcast clients often require a certain level of specification when deciding on what cameras to use for special instances such as aerial filming. We were able to facilitate flying the Canon C300 camera (a preferred B-camera for many productions) with Carl Zeiss CP.2 21mm lens for the shoot, capturing both explosive and emotional moments of the scene. The dynamic elements of filming moving trains fitted well with our aerial camera, taking the shoot to the next level.
