How We Faced our Fears to Get The Shot

One of our clients Tutoria, which provide educational resources to students, asked us to make a DVC with a humorous twist to it highlighting the sorrow the advent of exams bring on. The video involved shots of a boy sitting morosely in each frame while everyone around him is having a good time. One of those shots involved a pirate ship… which our DoP has a deadly fear of. He decided to face his fears. The following video has the complete footage which shows him screaming as soon as he’s gotten the shot and the actors struggling to keep a straight face and then laughing out loud at his reaction
Luckily, he got the shot in the very first take.
