My Role: Location Sound Recordist
Date: October 2015
Production Company: Spindle Productions
Directed By: Greg Hackett

In October 2015, I joined the lovely crew at Spindle Productions in France to film with Guillaume Bonnafond, a professional cyclist as he climbed Col du Galibier. However, there was a twist. As part of a series in which we met Philippe Poncet, a keen cyclist despite being a COPD sufferer, Guillaume was challenged with completing the climb with 50% of his oxygen capacity; conditions that mimic those that COPD sufferers face everyday.

I have also written a blog post about the shoot and my approach to the recordings.
