Following a two-year break, Celebrity Hunted returned to our screens in January for Series 4. Participating in Channel 4’s Stand Up for Cancer. Eight celebrities now known as fugitives were paired together. To remain undetected whilst on the run for 14 days to avoid getting tracked down by professional Hunters.
Former police officers, intelligence agents and military personnel make up the team of hunters who used their expertise to hunt down the celebrity fugitives.
The celebrities who appeared in season 4 were:
- Ollie Gareth
- Chizzy Akudolu
- Lisa Maffia
- The Vivienne
- Chloe Veitch
- Iwan Thomas
- Richard Whitehead
A requirement for this project was to submit a filming application to the National Trust. Successfully obtaining these permissions allowed us to complete the required shots by production teams. The permissions from The National Trust allowed us to film aerially above Formby Beach in Merseyside using one of our Twin Squirrels.
For episode 6 of the series we had a hunter on board our aircraft who was coordinating with the on-ground team, in attempt to track down the fugitives. We followed and captured shots of the Huey Heli taking off and in flight as part of the production had on board hunters on route to track down the celebrity fugitives.
Our Twin Squirrel aircraft was equipped with our nose-mounted GSS C516 camera and a Sony P1 HD camera paired with a 30-300mm lens to film aerial footage of the fugitives. The camera systems were rigged to our aircraft.
Celebrity Hunted Stand Up for Cancer is available to watch on My4.
