Talent: Filming, location filming, post-production
What was the brief?
A unique event was being held to publicise the 2014 BMW PGA Championship – an event involving a quartet of England rugby stars putting their golf skills (or lack of) to the test.
Our cameras were there to capture every fluffed shot and flying lump of cut-up turf.
How did we approach the brief?
The England ruby players involved were Owen Farrell, Ben Foden, Joe Marler and David Wilson. Also present was top golfer Francesco Molinari and Paul Barrington, a past holder of the World Gold Trick Shot title.
Paul was the ringleader on the day, devising fiendish trick after fiendish trick for Francesco and the England aces to try their luck at. And the film we created was very much in this spirit of have-a-go fun – culminating as it does with Paul attempting a spectacular sporting mash-up.
YouTube viewers have responded very positively to the film’s light-hearted shenanigans. So far it’s picked up more than 288,556 views.
