Born A King takes place in the 1920s, when there was a desire to unify Saudi Arabia. The story covers the childhood of the future King Faisal, who went to England as a child to resolve the conflict. As a boy of 14 or 15 he was suddenly opened up to the world having gone from the desert to the cosmopolitan city of London. On top of that he had to grapple with English diplomacy, which was a real nest of vipers.
Filmed across the UK and Saudi Arabia, it will it the screens in 2018.

We used our Matrice 600 with Alexa Mini and a set of Carl Zeiss CP2. On the ground steadicam, tracking vehicles, a MoVI M15 and all sort of grips.
Crazy enough, we even launched our fully loaded Matrice 600 from a rib boat in the middle of the sea!
