We are honoured to have attended the Prime Video World Premiere for new Amazon Original series, Jungle, at Odeon Luxe Leicester Square last night.
The six-part musical drama, produced by Nothing Lost, was filmed on ARRI Alexa Mini LF and ARRI Signature Primes by series’ co-creator and cinematographer Chas Appeti. Procam Take 2's London branch proudly provided camera and grip packages for the series.
Jungle follows the connected lives of several strangers, each facing their own struggle, viewed through the prism of UK rap and drill music, and giving a perspective on an often unseen world. Frequently misunderstood, it’s a world where one law governs everything: only the strongest will survive. As the strangers’ worlds begin to unravel around them, they come to the realisation that every action, no matter how small, has a consequence.
The series is told through a unique blend of music and dialogue, working alongside creatively ambitious cinematography and design to create a tilted, timeless version of today’s London and bring to life a compelling and complex narrative. The series features some of the UK’s top drill and UK rap artists and looks to capture a very different side to an often told story. Portraying the city through compelling visuals, whilst detailing the many perils and dangers involved in day-to-day life in Inner City London and ultimately conveying a bigger message about the true value of life.
Jungle will launch exclusively on Prime Video in over 240 countries and territories on 30th September. Watch the trailer below.
