Morecambe by air – Update

So the number of views on Facebook has just reached 40,000, with 661 shares and 246 likes. This has taken just 6 days. The YouTube video has been seen 530 times. The press release has led to a number of websites featuring the video in their news. Morecambe is certainly a much-loved, unique and special place and I am looking forward to being challenged to promote other places. Please get in touch if you would like to discuss what might be possible for you!

Morecambe

This is my most recently completed project, and again it is a film combining aerial and regular video. It was commissioned by John O’Neill for Morecambe BID (Business Improvement District) and the video can be viewed above. The film was posted on Facebook yesterday and I am amazed that 24 hours later it had been viewed 15,491 times, shared 304 times, with 28 comments and 118 likes. I was really bowled over by so many of the positive comments about both Morecambe and my film (there are lots more comments on the shares) and I really hope Morecambe BID are pleased with the response. There is a 30 second version over on Twitter (@MorecambeBID) and I took lots of aerial photographs too, so when I get a moment I will put everything together within my projects page in the gallery. I will also provide an update on the Facebook response later in the week.

Ross Bay Retreat – New Video

Above is a new version of my video created for Ross Bay Retreat (rossbayretreat.com) 20 months ago. We really enjoyed our stay there and if you like the idea of staying in a holiday cottage that looks directly out onto the sea then I would certainly encourage you to have a look at their website.

In the intervening months I feel I have learnt so much more about video editing and filmmaking. Although I am proud of the original I do think that this version is an improvement on it for a number of technical and aesthetic reasons. If you want to compare the two and let me know what you think, then here is the original!

ITV Aerial Video Work

It was great to have my services requested by ITV this week. Yesterday I went to a well known local tourist attraction to capture some footage for a piece that was being created for This Morning. I was due to also do a little aerial filming of a certain celebrity but unfortunately he called in sick on the day! When I know when it is going to be used and aired on TV I will post details.

“One For Sorrow…” Fort Walney War Memorial

Stuart Bastik and Maddi Nicholson of Art Gene commissioned Aerial Artwork to produce a film to document their impressive and newly installed war memorial “One For Sorrow…” at North Walney. The challenge to capture the mood and unique location of the work was one to which I really enjoyed responding. I know Stuart and Maddi are pleased with the end result and I hope you enjoy it too. Although it takes a little longer to load up I would recommend watching it in 1080p (Full HD).

I would urge you to read all about the artwork on the Art Gene website by clicking on the link in red here:
