An expensive photographic camera tied to a rock smashes to the ground as three cavemen grunt in disgust.
It's all regulated in a very day's develop a reveal that appears like Horizon produced by the Jackass crew. Thank you for visiting Making Heritage, one of the most insane and bizarre documentary series to hit TV screens in years.
It features ingenious, daredevil Scots Steve Flynn and Neil Wilson wanting to recreate the pivotal moments of all time that cameras are not around to capture, using many cutting-edge technology, improvised camerawork and crazy stunts.
The Latex Uniforms show, around the National Geographic channel, aims to instruct more about heritage by bringing events alive - though the special effects experts had a great deal fun doing it, they included their finest behind-the-scenes antics - including bloody noses, bruises, vintage car chases and crazy camera techniques - included in the programme.
That helps to make the unique series the most entertaining and truly offbeat looks at documentary-making.
Along with the men behind the show said they loved every bruise and bloody-nose-filled moment from the filming.
The show began yesterday evening with a examine Hitler's early years. Producer Steve, from Dundee, said he, colleague Neil, from Edinburgh, and also the third team member Colin Thornton, of Loughborough, Leicestershire, loved receiving the opportunity to dress up and play soldiers or cops and robbers for income.
He said: "I can't believe how lucky We are sometimes, since this is my dream job and I hope I never need to change it.
"We are there to do employment - but you can't help having a good time when you're dressed up as gangsters for the '20s film and driving around an airfield shooting at one another.
"People who watch the show always say we look like we have been creating a great time.
"But we will need to have the shot - and even though our gag reel is about three hours for a while following a few of the injuries and mishaps, we are there to be sure we obtain the work done.
"We are reasonably sensible about it. I've not lost any teeth yet but It is simply a matter of time - and now we do turn out resembling leopards, with bruises everywhere."
The theory to the show originated in it channel, who have been stunned at a relevant video the team had made 4 years ago.
Then, these were working as graphics experts for your BBC heritage department, who had recruited them from art school in Dundee. They were given a little budget and told to recreate the Omaha Beach D-Day landings.
WITH only the three of which and only enough cash for three uniforms as well as guns, they arrived on the scene from behind their computer desks and got clothed as Allied soldiers.
They took it in turns to run inside the real Omaha beach in Normandy and repeated the method dozens of times.
Then then did it all again, now dressed as German soldiers trying to repel themselves. By merging every one of the individual shots into one image, they provided it look like the mammoth military operation.
A making-of video got four million YouTube hits within days, and their wacky creativity made them the most popular part of special effects.
Steve said: "That was our 'I can't think that worked' moment. It became a calling card for us and, after 4 years on the BBC, we set up our own company, Compost Creative.
"We have thus far handled the kids' show Red Alert and a number of Horizons.
"About 1 . 5 years ago, we got the decision from National Geographic, who basically said they wanted us to perform a Bloody Omaha scene - nonetheless they wanted it 5 times a chapter for four episodes.
"We knew it absolutely was going to be painful and hard work. However it may be fantastic."
