Milo The Magnificent was filmed entirely in one location across three days in the heart of Winchester, United Kingdom.
Shooting on the Black Magic Ursa Mini and in 4.6k, Writer/Director Ben Wicks and DoP Jan Solberg were influenced by the glossy images of the John Lewis Christmas adverts.
Sound recordist, Alistair Bathgate , utilised his RODE arsenal, using products such as the RODELINK wireless system to send sound to crew and into camera.
The challenges included working with a live animal, three young actors and a house still in occupation by a family of five but we feel the result is truly magical.
