The TellyJuice crew had a massive amount of fun filming this promo for SAS: Who Dares Wins for Viasat World.
Five ex-special forces soldiers put 30 recruits through their SAS selection process to see who is the most resilient both physically and psychologically. In order to show how grueling these tests can be we cast a Physical Trainer / Course Instructor from Wild Forest Obstacle Activity Centre and filmed him tackling an extreme cross-country course wearing a body camera.
For the tech-heads out there, we used a GoPro Hero 5 with a GoPro Karma Grip. In some of the shots instructor Robin (above) had to hold the Grip in his mouth so that he could be hands-free for the course!
Our crew also shot the action in slow-mo with a Sony FS7. Many shots were repeated for different angles so Robin had to jump off the pontoon at least 10 times and throw himself into the swamp at least 5 times.
For the TV promo we also filmed SAS :Who Dares Wins instructor Ant Middleton in a studio. Ant is not only thoroughly badass but is also a lovely, accommodating guy.
