Chief Productions has released a short-form film titled ‘Bat Sh*t’ which challenges the misconception that bats are to blame for the coronavirus pandemic.

The tongue-in-cheek film, featuring comedian Romesh Ranganathan, highlights the real issues behind the Covid-19 outbreak including the destruction of natural habitats, the illegal wildlife trade and unchecked consumption.

Filmed in May during the depths of lockdown, ‘Bat Sh*t’ is a collaboration between two of Chief Production’s directors, Nate Camponi in the UK, and Chris Cottam in LA.
