The Nation’s Favourite Advert
We were required to provide large-scale props and effects to help create atmosphere in the advert. These included a 20 foot long giant sausage, confetti, wet weather and snow.
HOW WE DID IT
To produce the confetti effect we positioned confetti cannons along the street the party was parading down. We preprepared cylinders full of confetti and were able to switch these in for each take, triggering each at the appropriate moment using wireless remotes.
The giant sausage was filled with helium and tethered with ropes. We were able to position the sausage using these ropes and hide among the crowd while parading down the street, being careful to avoid catching it on hanging basket brackets.
