Radio 2 - Zoe Ball Breakfast Show Promo

Rigs, Food Props & SFX

explore project

Every now and then we get an opportunity to go back to basics, using some very simple in camera tricks to make things happen.

This lighthearted 'Smashing Mornings' promo for Radio 2's Zoe Ball Breakfast Show used some of these. Filmed in reverse we helped dress a baby (by whipping its hat and gloves off - shhhhhhh) and make lunch for Mum. We also burnt the toast and watered the garden.

Project Details 

Artem was asked to create food props for the shoot and to design a number of rigs to enable the various effects for this quick-turnaround job.

Our technicians installed a mini smoke machine into a modified toaster, which, on a cue, popped the burnt toast up and filled the room with smoke as Mum danced around and made lunch.

We also made a lovely fake  sandwich from foam rubber and polyeurethane tomato and cheese. The sandwich was pulled out of the lunchbox on a nylon thread.

We used a small water supply and pump to create the water effects in the garden.
