“You guys did this digitally right? Added the flames in post?” said one of our production friends. No. We actually had a drain shoot flames and actually had it cued by our brave actor (Yuri) turning the faucet on.
Real flames, all in camera. We all had to sign waivers.
The good news is that the shoot cost no one their eyebrows, but the even better news is that on TV, the spot is pretty hard to miss.
