For the '1 Million Pickup' stunt for The Sun/News of the World, we were asked to engineer the picking out the winning entry, from a huge pile of nearly 1 million envelopes, by an OSF Stunt Team bungee jumper, and hand it to presenter Davina McCall.

In spite of having only four days - from first contact to filming - to design, engineer and execute the stunt, we achieved this highly precise stunt at the first attempt - and in one take!

We used a Liebherr 50 tonne, all-terrain crane, giving a jump height of 180 feet, and our special 'GoldenEye' jumpstation which provides an excellent camera platform.
