Two Days, 3 Minutes

Later this month, we'll release a promotional video for Muddy Water Camo on our website www.muddywatercamo.com. The footage was shot last Monday and Tuesday near Stuttgart, AR. Following are a few "behind the scenes" shots that you might enjoy. It's hard to imagine how much goes into a three-minute video. 




Day 1:  Scouting the location, setting up a jib in a swamp, and prepping the site for the next day's shoot.

Day 2: Setting up electronics and cameras, rehearsing lines in the swamp, and shooting scenes
