The assignment was to recreate Bear’s signature “Man Vs Wild” style in service of Solo’s “Beat Bear” competition. Which meant finding a “wild” location (Sydney’s Centennial Park the day after Mardi Gras), some “wild” beasts (a blow-up kangaroo), and keeping up with the very excitable Mr Grylls. He was a joy to work with – by far one of the most enjoyable shoots I’ve ever been involved with. PS No drinking water was derived from elephant dung during the making of this commercial.
