Earlier in the summer we were commissioned by Siren Design, a design agency in London, to capture a comprehensive package of aerial imagery of the enormous East Midlands Gateway project near Derby, Derbyshire. 
 
Initially we were planning to use our drone to take the imagery, but we soon realised that this project would need a different approach ... given that a) it was directly next to the busy international East Midlands Airport, and b) the site to be captured was at least a square mile in size!

We recently started working with luxury estate agency Mr and Mrs Clarke and our first property to capture was a stunning 6-bed house with breath-taking views over the Surrey Hills — an AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty). 
 
We were asked to provided a comprehensive set of drone aerial photographs, interior photographs, exterior ground-level photographs and external dusk photographs, along with an aerial promotional film for the property.

A few months ago we were commissioned to provide a complete package of promotional imagery of a stunning new-build property in Fleet, Hampshire. Our client, Elsmore Homes, wanted us to provide a set of interior photographs, exterior photographs, a Matterport virtual tour as well as a walk-through property video – or as we call it, “the works”!

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.

Earlier in the year we were approached to film a prestigious black-tie awards event called the Surrey Property Awards which takes place every year at the G-Live venue in Guildford, Surrey, and this year would be attended by over 400 guests. 
 
Our client, The Promotional Edge, were looking to have a short promotional film produced using footage at the 2018 event to be able to use when promoting the 2019 event. As such it had to be short, snappy and engaging, whilst conveying the glitz and glamour of the event, and the calibre of companies it attracts.

We were recently commissioned by luxury property developer Hedge Hunter to take a set of promotional photographs of their latest project, the stunning 'The Bridge' development of flats in the heart of Farnham, Surrey. The striking golden and cream building occupies an enviable position with views over the River Wey and the Gostrey Meadow public park, as well as having a large frontage onto the bustling South Street. 
 
The brief was to capture: external photographs of the development, showing how it nestles into the surrounding landscape; internal photographs and a Matterport Virtual Tour of one of their show flats; and a promotional film of the development.

Horizon Imaging was recently commissioned to produce a set of promotional imagery to mark the opening of a luxury kitchen and bathroom design showroom in Mytchett, Surrey — Your Beautiful Kitchen. 
 
The brief was simple — they needed a set of beautiful photographs of their new showroom, an engaging promotional film of the showroom to give people a flavour of what it's like to visit, and finally a virtual tour to allow their website visitors to explore the showroom from the comfort of their homes. Ultimately, all this imagery will have the same purpose — to whet the appetites of the website visitors and to encourage them to come and visit the showroom!

During the course of the last year we've been putting together a promotional film for the Charton Manor Care Home based in Farningham Kent. The video required several visits to record the various activities that Charton Manor wanted to have captured for the video, including interviews with residents and footage of the grounds. 
 
The finished video is a great example of how we can provide a full suite of filming and editing services to produce a comprehensive promotional film, as the film combines drone aerial footage, inteviews, static ground footage and sliding dolly shots — all of which come together to produce an engaging introduction to Charton Manor.

We recently finished one of our largest commissions, producing a comprehensive package of marketing imagery for a brand new care home that's just been built in the outskirts of Farnham, Surrey — Farnham Mill Nursing Home. 
 
Our client, MCS Construction, was justly proud of this incredible building and wanted 'the works' when it came to professional marketing imagery to be able to use on their website — we took drone aerial photographs, ground-level photographs both internally and externally, a Matterport virtual tour and we produced a short promotional walk / fly-around video of the whole site!

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.

A long-term family friend recently asked if we could create a short film about something very dear to his heart — a wooden bureau that took him many years of hard work during his spare time to design and build as a gift for his daughter. As he now lives very far from his daughter, he rarely gets the chance to enjoy the fruits of his handiwork and so this video would serve as a permanent reminder of the bureau which he can take with him everywhere. 
 
Even if one has no background in carpentry, it's hard not to be bowled-over by the beauty of this piece of furniture. The attention to detail is impeccable, the fit and finish is extraordinary, and the amount of thought that went into its design and execution is plain to see.
