Gargunnock House was built during the 16th and 17th centuries. It stands in 2,000 acres of farm and moorland, and is let out to guests from all over the world Working closely with the custodian of the House, I created a short promotional film, to capture the house and grounds in their full Autumn glory, and which will be used to give potential guests a feel for what awaits them.
The footage for this film - which you can see by clicking here - was shot over several days, using a DJI Mavic, and included some very interesting indoor flying! The footage was edited and colour-adjusted by me, and the music backing the clip has a special significance - it is Nocturno in E flat by Frédéric Chopin, who visited Gargunnock House in 1845. Did he play the piano you can see in the video? Probably. Although no evidence exists to confirm that he did, it's hard to imagine him not playing during his stay. Regardless, Chopin's music makes a lovely, and very relevant, contribution to the overall nature of the film and its subject matter.
Four Seasons Campers are a family-run campervan hire business, based near Loch Lomond in Scotland. They have a fleet of VW Campervans that can be hired for short or longer periods. Given Scotland's stunning scenery, a campervan holiday seems like a great way to experience all the country has to offer! I worked with Liz and Ivan to create a short promotional film to showcase the vans, the campervan experience and also to show off some of that amazing Scottish scenery.
You can see the finished product by clicking here. The footage was shot over several days in April and May 2018, using a DJI Mavic. I found it to be a very enjoyable experience, and worked closely with Liz and Ivan to ensure the finished video was precisely what they wanted. We worked through a number of different versions of the video, trying out different footage and looks, to get to the end product. A great collaboration!
I hope you agree that, in the end, the video does justice to both the subject matter and the stunning countryside.
Tyrrells Wood is a parkland golf course designed by five-times Open winner James Braid, located near Leatherhead. Its Grade II listed clubhouse complements its stunning surroundings in the beautiful Surrey countryside. The course itself is laid out over a number of gently undulating hills, and this aspect ensures there are great views to be had from many of the holes.
330airial was asked to provide aerial shots of each of the holes, and the clubhouse, for the club's website. Initial footage was shot in August 2018, again using the Mavic. Whilst the open nature of the golf course layout meant the general planning was relatively straighforward, the undulating nature of the course dictated some interesting flying routes.
A further two days' filming was carried out in October 2018 to capture all of the necessary footage. This was added to a 360 degree panorama picture of the course to create an immersive interactive experience.

Secret Edinburgh: An Unusual Guide is a fascinating guide to some unusual, hidden or little-known aspects of Edinburgh. For example, most people have heard the (greatly embellished) tale of Greyfriars Bobbie - but what of the city's other famous dogs, with real stories to tell - Toby, Bum, Cuillin, Dobbler and Maida?
Working with the book's author, Hannah Robinson, we provided aerial shots of a number of 'secrets' in the book. This involved operating in 'Congested Areas', and so careful planning was required to ensure that filming was legal, safe, and with full permission from the various bodies responsible for each location. Flying low over the rocks at Joppa and high over Edinburgh at Saughton Rose Garden have been great experiences!
Filming has now been completed for the promotional video, which can be found on Vimeo by clicking here.
