The RNLI are constantly creating and distributing safety awareness and training materials to fishermen, sailors and anyone with an interest in the sea.
Despite operating an in-house video production unit, they regularly ask Classlane Media to produce training and safety videos for them. The Survive! video was developed as a training tool to encourage fishermen to survive at sea if they should have to abandon their vessel.
The programme uses a mixture of drama (shot on a real trawler in the English Channel with real fishermen in acting roles), training footage and a location-based presenter (Sarah Beeny from Channel 4’s ‘Property Ladder’) to thoroughly yet entertainingly outline all areas of sea survival.
Underwater photography, minicams and stunt work all added to constant sea-sickness to create a programme which has been distributed and viewed throughout Europe and is now recognised as essential viewing for novice and experienced sailors alike.
