Alain Robert the man they call French Spiderman planned a guerrilla climb of the 185-meter tall GDF Suez tower in Paris’ financial district in protest against hidden foreign exchange fees. We were tasked with capturing the stunt and creating a video.
Remaining unseen until the last second meant we could only capture limited content, we wanted to ensure what we did film would be engaging and high quality.
Creating a banner for Alain to unveil on his climb, we captured pre-climb interview footage, knowing he would be arrested upon his descent. We used Alain’s voiceover to narrate the video, giving greater depth and honesty to the final product.
The stunt achieved far-reaching press mentions in France and the UK, while the video has 1.15 million views and 550 comments.
