I've made a lot of action-adventure and natural history documentaries and, whilst filming, met a lot of extraordinary larger-than-life characters. Often in conditions of extreme danger.
Although he is not based on one person, Rod the Sharkfighter is an exaggeration of many facets - both good and bad - of this personality type. Other Info:
I have want to do more drama and comedy when I saw Jamie Smelt (who plays Rod the Sharkfighter) in a comedy I knew he would be perfect in the role devised by myself and Neil Dorman.
Having no money, we shot on borrowed equipment and edited on cheap software. Being used to broadcast equipment this is a real challenge for us. It's also a 25fps clip. Sorry about that. When I work for US TV I stay native NTSC all the way.
