We were approached by an Exeter-based filmmaker - Fresh Ground Films - to join their shoot, to capture some aerial footage for Co-Cars, a the hire-by-the-hour car club across Exeter and the greater South West
As well as delivering some stock footage from our previous projects in Exeter City Centre, we had two main take-off areas - Exeter Science Park and Exeter Technology College, each of which presented its own set of challenges;
Exeter Science Park is only 2km away from the end of the runway at Exeter Airport, meaning we had to work closely with Exeter ATC to coordinate our flight proposal around their take-off schedule (i.e. a lot of paperwork).
Exeter Technology Centre, which allowed us to fly along the new "cycle superhighway", to get shots of both the Co-bikes and Co-Cars in the same shot - tight crowd control was required to keep nosy students at a safe distance from our take-off area (also a lot of paperwork).
Take a look at the final film and let us know what you think.
