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.
