Old Speckled Hen - Haunted Pub Prank RD Content

'Artem are reliable, inventive and an incredibly talented bunch. Their friendly approach to solving all manner of on set challenges is a joy to work with.'

Artem designed and created a number of clever rigs and set-ups to be used on unsuspecting participants as part of a hidden camera prank to coincide with the launch of the new ‘Old Spirited Hen’ ale.

The shoot took place at The Red Lion pub in Avebury, reportedly one of the most haunted pub in Britain and the only pub to be within a Neolithic stone circle.

Participants for the project, who believed that they were selected for beer tasting, were left alone in the pub’s ‘haunted’ bar, at which point Artem stepped in to give them a bit of a shock. Amongst the set-ups conceived and designed by Artem were tankards falling spontaneously from their hooks, vibrating beer taps, a chess set seemingly launching itself from a mantelpiece, and sheets of paper blown by a phantom wind.

Members of the Artem team were on set to operate all of the set-ups and can be seen within the film, which can be viewed here.
