A daring pursuit through the rooftops and back-alleys of Melbourne.
Whilst filming in Melbourne’s iconic ACDC lane, our cameras captured graffiti artists illegally tagging walls. The police arrived and requested to review our footage to catch the perpetrators.
We wanted to achieve an aerial camera movement that soared downwards beside an outdoor stairwell as the two actors bolted down it. In a time when camera drones and GoPros were non-existent, we had to couch a Z1P video camera in a cine saddle, tie it to a heavy rope, and slide it off the roof of a six storey building; making sure we grabbed the rope before the camera smashed into the ground... the things we do for the perfect shot.
