Barbarians Rising by Mitch Jenkins
The new billboard campaign for The History Channel’s ‘Barbarians Rising’, captured by Mitch Jenkins, was recently unveiled. Known for his unique cinematic style, the commission stemmed from Mitch’s previous projects for The History Channel including ‘Vikings’ series.
We were involved in the shoot’s early stages with Rental Desk Executive Grace Mpono working closely with Mitch and his team. A range of smoke and ice machines such as the Antari Ice Z-Series Low Fog Machine, designed to produce a beautiful floor-hugging dry ice fog effect, were tested as well as lighting kit.
After two days of fog, smoke-infused air, the final result is nine action-packed shots of Barbarians as they invade the Roman Empire. The shoot was produced by Sasha Rickerd and the incredible set was designed by Matt Huddleston all of which was completed back in January 2016 at Malcolm Ryan Studios in Wimbledon.
