The Maniac team spent a rather soggy Wednesday filming a live dog training event with the crew from AbsoluteDogs.
We were on location at a holiday park near Okehampton for 'Naughty But Nice Live', a week long event aimed at helping dog owners to train their unruly pets through a number of seminars & workshops.
Across the day we filmed three workshops and a seminar at the end of the day. Each workshop included an hour in the 'classroom' followed by an hours practical session outside with the dogs. The seminar was three hours long and included a 45 minute dog skills demonstration and a Q&A session that was broadcast direct onto Facebook.
Unfortunately the weather was not very friendly and for the fist two outdoor workshops we had to creak out the rain covers for the cameras and Tom & Lauren had to teach under umbrellas. Thankfully it dried up a little for workshop three and the seminar demo session.
The day was filmed using a Sony EX3 & a Canon XF100 camcorder mounted onto monopods for manoeuvrability. We also used Sennheiser radio mics to capture clean audio throughout the day.
The event will be edited down to allow new and existing NBN and Absolute Dogs customers to watch the workshops & seminars online.
