Exeter Chiefs / Paignton Zoo

Project Brief

We were asked to make a video to promote the sponsorship of Exeter Chiefs Premiership Rugby by Paignton Zoo that portrayed the players as animals.

What We Did

We sourced a body-paint specialist and set to work making the players up as a range of wild animals. Shooting was limited to a single (chilly) evening and was technically complex as the paint was easy to smudge and took time to reapply. As such tackles had to be carefully choreographed! The film was enriched by the addition of comprehensive sound design undertaken by our composer Andy. The film was a huge success and its production made the national press.

Client Feedback

“Excellent cinematography”
