THE BRIEF

From the highest peaks of the Pyrenees to the warm sandy beaches of Barcelona, armed with just his car, a boot full of sports gear and a camera crew, he’s got to make it through a week full of challenges. From heart stopping heights, to fast flowing rivers as he makes his way from summit to sea. It’s going to be exciting. It’s going to be exhilarating. And he’s ready for anything.

How we did it: 

We filmed a TV-style mini series charting the journey from summit to sea, with all of the challenges along the way. From paramotoring and white water rafting, to rock climbing and skydiving, the Social Films crew were put to the test every day. With weather conditions ranging from snow capped mountains, to blistering mediterranean heat, the pressure was always on and there was little room for error. ‘Car to car’ shots were captured on the journey between challenges and these were critical to show the versatility of the Seat Leon ST in all climates. We used a combination of handheld shots, along with head and chest mounted GoPro’s to capture the action as it happened. A drone captured epic aerials, whilst on the ground shots filmed in 120fps added to the drama. We returned with over 2TB of footage, which was cut down in to 4 x 3 minute segments that featured on the Telegraph.
