PROMO FOR MY DISCOVERY CHANNEL SERIES ONE CAR TOO FAR

ONE CAR TOO FAR PROMO FOR THE DISCOVERY CHANNEL

Here’s a taster of a recent show I series directed for the Discovery Channel.

We dropped an ex-special forces soldier, a petrol head and an old Jeep Wrangler into four of the world’s toughest environments, turned the cameras on and waited to see what happened.

Behind the scenes, it was a monster effort just to get the cars onto their starting positions for each episode. Thanks to some of the best off-roaders in the business, headed up by Duncan Barbour, we managed to get the car and talent into some ludicrous fixes. My favourite had to be the summit of a glacial covered, Chilean volcano.

Roads were out, so moving a small army of crew (sometimes up to 6 cameras) and support teams across sand, ice, water and a mountain range wasn’t easy but the stunning locations and great action made for an epic adventure off and on screen. Hope you agree.

I’ve been Series Directing a new adventure / survival series for the Discovery Channel which takes a car, a survival expert and a petrol head to four of the world’s toughest environments. In South America I experienced some of the most challenging shoots so far in my career, taking a film crew across volcanic glaciers one of the driest deserts on earth and a very, very wet rainforest.

This picture was taken on top of a volcanic glacier in South America and features Sound Recordist Darrell Briggs and myself tracking behind the talent on skidoos.
