A report from our recent shoot at the European Athletics Championships in Berlin
Baking in Berlin
15th August 2018
Berlin was the stage for another European Athletics Championships and we sent crew out there to film behind the scenes. With the UK and Europe baking under the sun, temperatures on one day reached 38 degrees, pushing even the fittest athletes to the limit. Luckily we didn’t need to be as fit to film them! The Berlin Olympic Stadium is steeped in history and is built like a Roman Colosseum. This creates a wonderful setting for a major athletics event and gladiatorial competition. Oh and it’s a pretty great place to film too. The hours may be brutal for everyone working behind the scenes, but the event delivered brilliant athletics and we shot some really cool footage. Tom, as usual, worked his socks off and the local German crew of Uli and Alex were excellent, and good company. We also learnt about and filmed a new format of athletics called DNA (Dynamic New Athletics) and we hope that what we produce will help promote this exciting new event and win over the doubters.
