After racking up millions of hits worldwide, we thought it was time to reveal some nuts and bolts footage of Penny ‘Arctic’ coming together complete with staplers, glue guns and little grey balls.

Here are some snaps of the hard-working team who brought this film to life. It was a marathon task with the studio shoot squeezed into two weeks and only made possible with all the willing hands from Glassworks, Clockwork Frog and Second Home getting stuck in together. Photos by Luke Unsworth, the Camera Assistant and DIT for the shoot.
