Secret Policeman’s Ball
An Indiana Jones-inspired short, promoting Amnesty International’s Secret Policeman’s Ball.
It was quite an ambitious project, with characters based on some of the comedy greats who’ve been on the show in the past – along with the ones from this year. Then crushing them all!
The set was made from chunks of wood and all filmed on the edge of Rob’s desk.
The Mighty Boosh threw us for a loop by double-booking themselves on that night, so we hastily reshot what was quite an involved end scene of them being trapped between encroaching walls.
We had to film it twice, due to the aformentioned laptop fire.
Check it out!
We also shot a couple of other promotional shorts.
