Behind The Scenes – Planning
We sourced an actress specifically for this shoot, who was a real animal lover. It was important to get the chemistry and connection between the presenter and the dog, to give a more natural feel. We purposely didn’t script this as we wanted the presenter to use her own words and again, to give a more natural and fluid feel to the delivery. Our actress Bryony, is usually a TV presenter of a Wildlife show, so we knew she’d feel right at home and make the perfect fit for this role.
“Never work with children or animals!”
Sourcing the dog wasn’t as difficult as we initially thought. Fortunately, Ellie, our film producer and project manager, managed to grab ‘Maggie’ her sister’s dog for the day, who happens to to love a good bath! Phew!
Filming took place in hired family home for the day, who also happens to love dogs, with the final video being filmed outdoors, where the whole crew got completely soaked in the rain! It made for a quick shoot!
