Director of photography and cameraman Rob wanted both a quintessential camper and an ideal location vehicle – but he didn’t exactly want two vans. He asked us to merge the main characteristics of the two, to create somewhere he could stay in comfort, that would carry all his kit and make a steady shooting platform for car-to-car and traveling shots.
With twin sliding doors for filming out of, and the overall driving finesse of the T5, his base van was off to a good start. We played to its strengths by adding a lift out cooker Pod, so that Rob could film freely through the doorway – and rustle up a mean meal out under the stars.
A bed on Cambee’s rail system allowed him to carry a small shipping container of kit to location (or sports gear on his on days off), while a large, removable under bed draw meant storage space definitely wasn’t a problem. We crowned all this with sockets on virtually every available surface – and Souk was ready for (lights, camera) action!… Rob tells us they’ve since been out as far as Morocco on the job together.
