Shot across 4 days in Cheshire, the brief for this video was simple. 'Follow this unit while they do cool drills and make it look great'. Sir, yes sir!
At the initial address the Captain told the soldiers to treat myself and the director as though we were commanding officers. It was surreal having a platoon of soldiers at your command, if we asked from something we were met with 'yes sir!' and it was done.
Between smoke bombs and machine guns we had plenty of tools to make awesome, cinematic shots and it remains as one of Red Pencil's most talked about pieces of work.
