Million Dollar Hole In One

All7 Productions had never even considered becoming an international business so early on. Thanks to Daracle Photography, last year we found out that we would be traveling to Portugal to film the Million Dollar Hole in One.

During the months leading up to the event we researched and practiced how to follow a golf ball, which proved to be quite difficult. With this perfected All7 were ready to go! 

We arrived at Faro airport on the 20th June at 21:30, as soon as we stepped out of the plane we realised that we had under estimated the temperature! My first impressions of Portugal were increased when Daryl and I met with Jamie at the Conrad Hotel! I’d never set foot in a five star hotel before this moment so it was a bit overwhelming, although I’m not saying we wouldn’t do it again.

The first and second day of filming went off without any problems, other than a non-existing drinks buggy that was meant to be looping the course, leaving me and Daryl dehydrated for a lot of the tournament. Shot of the day had to go to the lady who put a hole in an electricity box.

Unfortunately none of the winners managed to get the hole in one, but that didn’t dampen their spirits! I’m sure flying our drone over the group would have at least cheered up anyone who was down about missing out on 1 million dollars.

We would like to thank Daracle Photography for intorducing us to MDHI1, letting us stay for the week and inviting us on the days out to the beach and waterparks when we had finished filming.
