Embark on a Storm Chase in This Gripping Doco-Drama for Weather Bot Groomsh

MOON FILMS director Ben Jacks deals with extreme weather conditions, muddy jeeps and an uncooperative herd of cows

Embark on a Storm Chase in This Gripping Doco-Drama for Weather Bot Groomsh

A great spot should be extremely relevant, interesting and beautiful. 'Storm Chasers,' produced by Moon Films, for the weather bot Groomsh, is just that. Not only a great action-packed two minute ride of excitement, but also a totally relevant message for the product. After watching, you'll definitely remember the tagline: Stay warned and warn others.

The shooting took place in the absolutely mesmerising Klodzka Valley with director Ben Jacks. Ben is represented in Poland exclusively by MOON FILMS. Without Ben's passion and commitment, and his amazing skills as a director and cinematographer, the effect of the production would not have been as fantastic as it turned out.

“Climate change is affecting all of us, so it was important to create a universal narrative that was driven by visuals and sound design, rather than specific dialogue,” explained director and cinematographer, Ben Jacks. “To me, this project captures the potential of what branded content can do — we created a powerful story that resonates with viewers in all markets, and educates viewers on how they can arm themselves with accurate on-the-ground info when a storm is nearby.”

The film's production abounded in adventures and survival experiences, and was full of all the favourite elements of the filmmaker: animals, special effects, drones, helicopters, hard-to-reach locations, and muddy jeeps.

A memorable part of the production included herding a flock of sheep to the second floor of a palace. Fortunately, with the help of a pastoral dog and some very brave actors, the scene was a success.

Another challenge the team encountered included a herd of cows that were not willing to cooperate. 

Despite the hardships, there's a silver lining in all this: 12 chickens were bought from a battery farm, and having starred in the film, they were then placed in their new home - an incredibly eco-friendly farm.

The MOON FILMS cast was found during an equally extreme casting that took place outdoors. The actors sailed in boats, ran about and experienced extreme weather conditions.
