Moved by how many people were being rescued, director Mia Mullarkey embarked on filming Taxi Watch in action. To capture the driver's world at night our cinematographer, Jass Foley, had a special car roof mount built. Sports car builder Ronan Kearns crafted a hydraulic pump mount to counteract the bumps of the road. Cameras were also attached to the bonnets and doors of cars to create an immersive visual experience.
