Weasels on TV01/11/2019
Other weasels were filmed such as our polecats and pine martens, but they didn’t make the cut… in fact they ended up using American martens! Blasphemous!
Not that our pine martens mind though, they are on to bigger and better things. This weekend the first episode in the “His Dark Materials” series airs on Sunday night, BBC1 at 8pm. The animals that appear are cgi, and the team responsible for this visited us to get some film footage of some of our animals moving to be able to accurately replicate this back in the studio.
While here they filmed our foxes and harvest mice among other animals, but the main star was Drogo one of our pine martens. He was captured to help create the movement for one of the main characters, Panteleimon, Lyra Belacqua’s daemon, when in his pine marten form.
