I was out filming at Abbotsford House, the home of Sir Walter Scott, recently in relation to an online course about the Jacobites I was filming in conjunction with the University of Edinburgh and National Museums Scotland.
So I finally got around to editing a new showreel. It shows my filming, editing, drone work and motion graphics work over the last couple of years.
One of my biggest passions is snowboarding and winter mountain life. It's the best. It's also a great opportunity for filming some stunning aerials.
I was up north again doing some aerial drone filming around the Cairngorm National Park. Managed to get some cracking winter weather, long lasting golden hours and beautiful snowy landscapes. I was really happy with the shots I managed to get.
I was lucky enough to get a the well-known hi-end hairdressing company Charlie Miller Hairdressing, for a client for an STV advert. Also lucky enough to work with talented model Tabatha Lamb for the backdrop based photo-shoot style shoot.
I was up north doing some drone filming of the Glenfinnan Viaduct and Glenfinnan Monument. Weather was a bit against me, however after waiting it out I managed to get a gap in the rain and make a short film of it.
I needed to create a aerial drone showreel so others could see the potential of this type of filming. Most of the locations are around Scotland, with some shots of the Polish coastline and Swiss Alps in there too.
I was given a brief from STV / STV Edinburgh to create an advert for Omni Furnishing which has a few shops around Edinburgh. The client wanted a bit of humour in the commercial but also, of course, to get across the message of all the great furniture he had in store.
