Experience Mid Sussex approached us with a fantastic project to produce 30 second aerial films for ten of their members. This was then followed by an all encompassing 2 minute aerial promotional video for use across their social media channels. They wanted the films to help promote the great variety of memorable visitor experiences on offer in Sussex. Drone filming of these various locations allowed us to capture and show viewers a truly unique perspective of some of the most photogenic attractions in the South of England. This included the stunning grounds at Wakehurst, the historic Bluebell Railway and the award winning vineyards of Bolney and Ridgeview. Having the opportunity to film some of the most beautiful locations in mid Sussex from the air was a great privilege and the resulting videos have been received very well indeed.
As with all drone shoots planning was key. In each location we needed to scout out the area, decide on an ideal shot list and then find the best places to take off from. This particular project was made a little simpler because each of the privately owned locations had sufficient land for us to take-off and land in. The majority of filming was done when the locations were either closed or when they were at their quietest, making it easier for us to capture the exact shots we wanted. Have a look at our drone laws UK blog for more information on the latest laws and regulations regarding drones. We used a two person crew, the pilot could concentrate on flying the drone and the camera operator could concentrate on controlling the camera. This method allows us to capture much more dynamic shots compared to a single operator and we feel this really shines through when watching the films.
