Naked + Afraid

Bodega + Director/CD Haley Geffen team up with Discovery to launch Naked + Afraid

New York/San Francisco-based content creation/production company BODEGA teamed up with Discovery Channel to launch the newest season of the reality series Naked and Afraid.

In the spot, a man and a woman stand side by side suited up for outdoor adventure, then begin removing layers of clothes and are left with only satchels and completely naked with dirt on their skin, while a narrator says, “Fully equipped, mankind can handle anything—but naked and stranded in the wild, we’re back in the food chain.”

Bodega director Haley Geffen worked with Discovery VP, Creative Pablo Pulido and senior writer/producer Luke Aeschliman to create the promo.

The spot was cut by Northern Lights editor Mark Tyler, who worked with the VFX team to incorporate effects. SuperExploder mixers Ted Gannon and Ted Marcus augmented the promo with a sound design that tied together the visual transitions. And Lustre colorist Chris Hengeveld added the finishing touches with his color grade.

Geffen worked with Pablo and Luke to create the subtleties of the stylized promo, overseen by Discovery Channel SVP Lara Richardson.

“We focused on how to remove clothes in a stylized way that enhanced our concept,” notes Geffen in a statement. “We didn’t want the act to look silly or even sexy. On the show, there’s nothing sexy about being naked. So we choreographed their actions and focused on specific motions that added energy to the visuals and uniquely branded the promo without sensationalizing the nudity.”

Naked and Afraid airs on Discovery Channel on Sunday, March 5 at 10 p.m. ET.
