Early summer 2014, kicking up storms of dust at dawn in a disused quarry in deepest, darkest Gloucestershire, Construct Creatives, BTTP Films, and the Flying Camera Company got extreme. Filming from the air, the ground, and underwater, and all in Ultra High Definition, this shoot commenced the first in a series that will culminate in the creation of the Adventure Promo, due for completion early next year.
Working on a premise similar to that of the Cadbury’s Milk Tray adverts from the 1980’s, ads where a dashing, 007-esque daredevil risks life and limb to deliver chocolate to various women-in-need, this promo follows our hero’s quest to deliver his dame a glass full of ice.

Last week we combined our DJI Ronin 3-axis camera stabilisation gimbal with a Steadicam XCS Ultimate 2 Sled (connected to a vest via Pro Arms) to create fully stabilised shots. Our DJI Ronin has a specially made quick release clamp to attach it to the Steadicam. As soon as our eagerly awaited MoVI M15 arrives we will be able to attach it via the new ‘Toad-in-the-Hole” quick release system.

This “foot stompin’, free wheelin’ quintet playing their own brand of “triumphant folk” were a great band to film. Their self-proclaimed lack of organizational skills made for some sidesplitting content.
