topic icon Daisy the Surfing Cow promotional video

In January, we loaned some camera kit to Helen Blackman from Wildcurl. She had made it into the final 3 contestants in the 'Love My Devon' competition and had the opportunity to win £10,000 and become an ambassador for the area. She was given one month to raise as much awareness for North Devon in the press, on television and online.

To achieve this, Helen and her husband Joel embarked on a journey with a giant talking plastic cow called Daisy. We loaned them a Sony PDX10 video camera and give them basic training to allow them to create video blogs of the journey.

You can follow their journey on the Love My Devon blog. Sadly they didn't win but they had a great time and an amazing experience.

As part of the event, they asked us to create a short promo of Daisy surfing, using some of the footage that they filmed while on tour - now you can see it in full.

We should stress that no animals were harmed in the making of this video - it's a plastic cow. The cowskin rug at the end was a prop borrowed from Lambland in Ilfracombe.
