topic icon Promo shoot for Paignton Zoo at Exeter Chiefs Stadium

Well that was a little different to our usual filming days. Mark & Charli spent yesterday evening at the Exeter Chiefs rugby ground filming a number of the team.

Nothing unusual in this until you realise that they were wearing nothing but their boots and briefs and had had their entire body painted to look like an animal!

The shoot was organised by Cineon Productions from Exeter and the video was being filmed for a new ident for Paignton Zoo and Maniac were there to provide kit hire and crew for the shoot.

We were using the Porta-Jib and took the opportunity to use the new remote follow focus and Teradek wireless video sender. Mark was mightily impressed with the remote focus unit and can't wait to use it more often!

You can check out the video above!
