Counter-terrorism film for the Home Office exploring vehicle as weapon situations.
To produce a short film aimed at councils and large developers to impress upon them the importance of Hostile Vehicle Mitigation to protect people in public spaces.
Health & Safety – EVCOM London Live and Film Awards 2023
The aim was to create a high-impact and very memorable film that would highlight just how vulnerable crowds are in unprotected spaces. Filming involved closing roads and diverting traffic across three days in Blackpool, hundreds of support artists, a fake food market that drew the attention of quite a few confused locals trying to buy some lunch; three individual camera crews and a stunt team all to bring the vision together.
We also filmed an actual van crashing in a controlled test site and built CG 3D models to achieve the desired effect.
Their professionalism in taking this project forward, and keeping it moving forward was outstanding. Despite the major issues that the covid pandemic brought to filming production schedules, the Pukka team were always positive and found solutions to the issues that seemed to continually block our progress.

It was really fun getting to know the team during the project. They were all helpful in answering questions and made me feel at ease. The design ended up being better than I could've envisioned!

I'm wondering why I never contacted these guys sooner! They have commendable talent in their fields and knocked my concept out of the ballpark. An amazing experience!
