Over the last few months we have been developing two uniquely different films for German telecoms and ICT manufacturers, Auerswald, as they launch into international markets under the new brand name, FONtevo. 
 
The Totem Consulting Group commissioned us to produce a 'UK and International Brand awareness film' focused on a specific Technology market, capturing the innovative and family-owned spirit of the parent company, Auerswald, as well as the international ambitions of the sub-brand, FONtevo.

During the past year we have been commissioned to produce two promotional films for national construction firm Willmott Dixon — one for the new Village Hotel in Bristol and the other for the new Woodmansterne Secondary School in Lambeth, London. The brief for both films was quite similar — the films had to feature both aerial and ground-level video footage and also needed to include interviews with members of staff who work in the respective buildings. 
 
The difference is that the Bristol film was captured after project completion, whilst the Woodmansterne School film was captured twice — at the beginning and towards the end of the construction work.

Last month we were commissioned to photograph a large residential extension of a stunning countryside property in Wormley, Surrey. From the outside the extension ... well, didn't look like an extension! — so well-executed was the design by Godalming-based MVL Architects. The extension consisted of a remodelled kitchen and open-plan dining area, and a large additional wing including a new entrance, utility rooms, washroom and study.  
 
MVL Architects asked us to fully document the extension from both outside an in which involved visiting the site twice to capture the exterior of the property in the most favourable lighting conditions — once in the morning and again in the afternoon.

Last month we travelled up to Northampton to capture a set of promotional ground-level and aerial promotional imagery for builders merchants, Hevey Building Supplies, who had recently moved to a much larger and more impressive yard. 
 
The brief was to create a short film promoting the size of the site, the range of stock and also to capture the 'snake' of delivery lorries leaving the site at 7:15am sharp! We were also asked to take a set of promotional images across the site, both out in the yard and inside their warehouse and shopfront.

Our brand new Drone Aerial Filming showreel is long overdue ... but it's finally here! 
 
This video incorporates some of the wide range of aerial footage we've shot with our drones over the past 3 years. From construction sites to campsites, business parks to universities, private gardens to lavish weddings, we've filmed it all in glorious high definition (and some of the latest footage is in 4K too). 
 
So sit back, grab a coffee and immerse yourself in the incredible bird's-eye perspectives that only our drones can provide.

Last Autumn we were commissioned by national construction firm Willmott Dixon to produce a short film which had to convey the important role played by apprentices in ensuring the continued success of their business. 
 
The film brought together footage from a number of different events including the 'Class of 2017 Graduation Ceremony' (for the latest group of apprentices who had successfully reached the end of the scheme) which took place at a large hotel in Greenwich, London, as well as numerous interviews with key members of staff which had been filmed at Willmott Dixon's Cobham office in Surrey in the months leading up to the Graduation Ceremony.

Earlier in the summer (yes, it seems a long time ago now doesn't it!), we were commissioned by The Dower House Nursing Home in Winchester, Hampshire, to produce a new promotional video as part of a marketing refresh for their website. 
 
The video was to include aerial footage of their site to show off its beautiful green setting in the Hampshire countryside, as well ground-level footage taken in and around their care home.

Over the last few months we have been working with leading commercial property investment firm CBGA Robson to document some of their newest assets in London and across the South East of the UK. 
 
The properties have ranged from an empty supermarket store in Eastleigh, Hampshire, a block of units in an industrial park in Rochester, Kent, and a modern office block in Staines, London. The common thread linking all of these sites? The use of our fully-portable 50-foot telescopic mast to take elevated photographs of all the premises to help illustrate their scale and location.

Back in 2015 we first visited this amazing landscaped vegetable garden near Petersfield, Hampshire, to take some promotional photographs for its architect, Graduate Landscapes. Now, 2 years later, we revisited the same garden to document how it had matured and developed over the intervening years, and to produce a brand new set of advertising material which could be used on the landscape architect's website. 
 
As well as taking a set of aerial and ground-level photographs of the garden, as we did last time, this time we were also commissioned to produce a short aerial and ground-level film to show off the grandeur and beauty of this very unique landscaping project.

A few weeks ago we were contacted by high-end estate agent Savills based in Guildford, asking if we could produce a short aerial video to help show off the location of a brand new property development that they were selling. The site in question is situated in the beautiful, stereotypically-English village of Puttenham in Surrey which lies in the 'Surrey Hills' — an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). 
 
As well as producing the video, we also took some aerial photographs which they could use in their printed marketing literature and on their website.

Earlier in the year we were commissioned by national construction firm Willmott Dixon to take a set of aerial photographs and produce an aerial and ground-based promotional video of one of their latest flagship projects — the 'Sibson' building at the University of Kent. 
 
The extraordinary W-shaped building is likely to be entered in for a number of awards, as the project has met / exceeded a number of stringent requirements in terms of energy efficiency and sensitivity to the surrounding environment, and Willmott Dixon were keen to have some striking imagery to represent the project.

Over the last few months we have been photographing a number of sites for digital marketing agency OneAgency on behalf of their client Bailey, specialists in roof and general building cladding products. 
 
The work involved capturing a mixture of ground-level and aerial imagery of a number of sites where Bailey's products have been used. So far we're only able to show photos from two of these projects, but we will be sharing more once permission has been granted.
