Iris’ Nina Taylor goes on a shoot and loses a falcon | You Couldn’t Make This Crap Up

The creative director at Iris Worldwide recalled a recent shoot, where things didn’t quite go to plan.

“Pretty much everyone in the industry says don’t work with children and animals, and it’s true! But I didn’t know that.” Nina had planned to film a falcon flying from one location to another. Everything was looking good, though the team had a tight schedule.

Unfortunately, during the second shot, the falcon flew off and went missing for days leaving everyone - particularly the bird handler - panic-stricken. Luckily, it turned up miles away and the vet was able to sign off that ‘no animals were harmed in the making of this film."

You Couldn't Make This Crap Up is directed by Nicole Bosky and filmed by Tom Baker.
