Filming the ‘Making Of’ Monarch Airlines’ TV Commercial

In January 2013 I was asked by the production company creating the new TV commercial for Monarch Airlines (the “Let’s Make Flying Fun Again” campaign) to film and edit the making of the ad’. I spent 3 days at Manchester Airport following the crew as they meticulously shot the commercial.

The whole video was shot on the 5D Mark III, mostly using the Manfrotto 682B monopod which is my trusty, go-to monopod of choice. Standard lenses were used including the 24-70mm L, 70-200 f/4 L and 50mm 1.4. For capturing the sound on the interviews I used a Rode lavalier microphone with a VC1 extension cable directly into the 5D.
