The release of the epic rowing film The Boys In The Boat – a film Livett’s renowned marine filming and coordination team were extensively involved in – is edging ever closer.

Back in October, the exciting first footage was released in a behind-the-scenes look at the film. Hot on the heels of this came the unveiling of the movie’s dramatic first full trailer.

Now, just days before it hits big screens in the UK, a captivating new 15-minute feature has been released, offering an exclusive peek into the making of one of the film’s standout scenes.

In this special featurette, director George Clooney and his team take an in-depth look at filming the Poughkeepsie Race scene – and reveal how a reservoir near Heathrow Airport was transformed to look like the Hudson River in New York.

This is one of the biggest scenes in the film, and one that Livett’s marine filming team were pivotal in bringing to life. Notably, the featurette highlights several of our vessels – including Bravo Lima GB, Charlie Lima, and Indigo Lima – which were all crucial to the scene’s success.

Keep your eyes peeled and you may even spot our very own Ed Livett making a brief cameo too!

You can see the results of our work on the film when it arrives in UK cinemas on Friday 12 January. Stay tuned to our website and social channels to find out more about how our expert team were involved in the film’s production.
