topic icon 4K advert filming at Wookey Hole with Colour247

We've spent two days filming the various types of accommodation at Wookey Hole with Colin from Colour 247 for a series of upcoming adverts.

We were shooting at three locations, a campsite near to Wookey Hole, the Wookey Hole Hotel and also a set of holiday lodges nearby. The aim is to create a number of adverts which will be shown online tp promote the accommodation offered by Wookey Hole Caves.

The footage was shot in 4K using two of our Sony a7s II mirrorless cameras, one of which was mounted on to our DJI Ronin-M 3-axis gimbal. This was set-up with a wireless transmitter allowing Colin to direct from nearby without the need for trailing cables.
The second camera was mounted onto a tripod & slider to capture any shots that needed to be more repeatable for use with special effects in the edit.

The first day of the shoot was carried out at the campsite, with day 2 focussing on the hotel and lodges.
We were joined on set by 2 different families, who playe the role of happy guests, enjoying the accommodation, play areas, hot tubs and the food in the restaurants

At the end of the 2 days all of the footage was handed over to Colin for the edit.
