topic icon Christmas TV Advert Filming with Colour247 for Festival Shopping

We have been working with Colour 247 on a project as camera crew, using our cameras & delivering the rushes for editing & post production. We have just wrapped on another shoot, this time we were creating a winter wonderland right here in Croyde. The final output will be a number of short 10 second TV adverts promoting Christmas shopping at a shopping centre (festival shopping) located in Wales and will be shown on local Welsh television.

This is the first time that we have been called upon to set up Christmas trees on set and the crew brought some of their own trees and lights from home to help add to the volume of trees in the background scene. We were also joined on set by Nicky, a model from Gloucester who travelled down for the day & was made to wear a Christmas hat in October. Crew roles we performed on this shoot included Director of Photography (DoP), jib and dolly grip, lighting grip. We supplied cameras and lighting as part of the engagement and organised the location logistics too.

The adverts, shot on the Blackmagic 4k camera, are set to air next month.
