Naked & Afraid
Renegade 83 Productions for Discovery Channel, Jan-Feb 2014
A popular show on the Discovery Channel, the Naked & Afraid team travelled to Cambodia to shoot an episode in the first part of 2014. Contacting Hanuman Films months in advance, we coordinated all the scouting for this shoot and selected the final remote location for the contestants to survive. After initial consideration of jungle areas as varied as Mondulkiri, Bokor and Chi Phat, we eventually settled on a remote location in Koh Kong Province about 45 minutes upriver from Koh Kong town. This satisfied the crew’s need for a convenient logistical base together with the requirement to have the talent dropped in a very remote area with no human contact.
The three-week shoot started in the middle of January with the two contestants being dropped in the jungle. Hanuman Films provided a large support team for this shoot, including our Fixer Vutha Soth and a local crew that included two medics, two runners and several boat drivers to get the crew in and out of the remote location. Although the contestants had to get naked for this shoot, it was clear they didn’t need to be afraid with Hanuman Films running the shoot.
