While the story takes place in New York and Ecuador, SkyMotion Video was tasked with capturing aerial footage in Toronto with the RED Dragon equipped drone to make it look like Gervais and Bana were sailing the seas on their way to Ecuador. Filmed at the shores of Lake Ontario at Scarborough Bluffs in Toronto, the drone was simply flown from the shoreline to capture the transitional travel shot in a mere morning. One such pass of the boat with Gervais and Bana on board can be seen in the official trailer below at 1:14. Enjoy!
