We’ve signed our fair share of NDAs over the years, but that’s not to say we weren’t surprised when our friend from O2 got off the Eurotunnel, gathered us around a cafe table, and handed us the unreleased Huawei P20 Pro in a giant sealy bag. A hushed and hurried voice whispered “keep it secret, keep it safe”. That pretty much set the tone for this one.

Our mission was pretty simple; get around and see as much of Paris as we could in a day, whilst showing off the features of Huwaei’s new flagship phone, the P20 Pro. There was just one hitch: the phone hadn’t been released yet and was heavily under wraps. If any member of the public was to pap cheeky a photo of the phone, the game was over, and our content would be pointless.

For this reason, we decided to keep a very low profile. We stuffed an FS5 armed with a Shogun Flame into a rucksack and opted to travel around the city under the guise of tourists.

Opting for public transport (and our legs) worked out really well, as we were able to cover a lot of ground, walking several miles around Paris, avoiding the chaotic traffic situation above ground. As it turned out, securing a permit to film anything in Paris was a pretty complicated endeavour. Having such a low profile meant that we could get our camera into places without being too conspicuous; nobody fancied spending the night in a French prison.

With the sun setting over the beautiful Sacre Coeur horizon, our job was done, and nobody knew we were ever there. Oysters all round.

Fancy a chat?
