Macro filming with Hamilton and Inches

It was a treat to get some privileged access working with Hamilton and Inches in the lead up to Valentines day on a new film the ‘Making of an Engagement Ring’. Opening with the selection and inspection of the diamond, we followed Master Jeweller Chay through the process of selecting the platinum band to shaping and creating the band and bezel, right through to setting the stone and the final polish. Finally the ring finds a home in the beautiful George Street showroom. It was the perfect opportunity to try out our new selection of macro lenses to really capture the fine detail and craftsmanship that goes into these rings. It’s always great to partner with brilliant companies who are literally only a stones throw from the studio.

Studio shoot: ShotScope Technologies

By | Edinburgh Film Company | No Comments

We were back at Red Roof Studios last week for the studio component of a new film we’re working on for ShotScope Technologies and the launch of their latest golf product. Shooting in high-frame rate 4K, under the watchful eye of Gavin White, we captured a mix of footage for storyboarding out this film, as well as a series of shots for  their upcoming TV advertising campaign.

The studio shoot followed a day on the course in late November 2015. The mixture of a beautifully manicured course in East Lothian, some flawless golf from Keir, the golf Pro and getting the weather window just right meant we could get a bit creative with the shot list, not least getting the drone up for the top-down views of the green.

Looking at this footage it’s still hard to believe that this was shot in the middle of whatever was otherwise a fairly bleak November.

It’s exciting to be back on our tour this week with Make Works in the first of a series of mini-tours right across Scotland. Focus of this tour was makers in the Scottish Borders. Great to be on the road again with Fi, aka Make Works Founder and it was everything that we love about Make Works, great makers, beautiful spaces, brilliant variety and we just love seeing whats out there and getting reminded that Scotland is pretty epic when it comes to making! 😉

Festival & Guardian Partnership

In amongst our work this year with the Edinburgh International Festival was a partnership with the Guardian newspaper to produce a series of classical rehearsal performances for their national site. We teamed up with the EIF crew and bsound Ltd to produce 5 short films showcasing the top classical performances in rehearsal from this years festival programme. All films were directed by Stuart Armit and co-filmed and edited by our team. You can find the full collection of these short films at this link.

Abernethy do Glentress

We’ve absolutely loved our partnership with Abernethy Adventure Centre this year and we’ve already shot 4 of the 6 shoot days we had planned this summer, including sailing out on Loch Tay, Canyoning in the Cairngorms and Kayaking across on the West Coast at their Ardgour Centre. The biking up at Glentress though was definitely something we were looking forward to and we were fortunate enough to get some glimmers of sunshine as a crew of about 20 riders carved out some shapes on the downhill course. With a Go Pro Hero3+ mounted on the handlebars for the downhill trails we managed to get some cracking footage to take away.

We were working again with GSI events on their new promo advert for the Glasgow and Edinburgh 10K which they’ve rebranded this year. Was great to be working with William Robertson on this and hear about his personal journey from 21 stone. Check out his story in the Daily Mail Online. Look out for this Ad on your Facebook news feed!

It was quite a weekworking on Skye with the R.House team – award winning architects and builders who’ve developed an innovative way of building homes for the Highland and Islands.  The brief for the film was something that showed the process and encapsulated the values but wasn’t pushy or a ‘hard sell’.  It was great to be able to capture aerial footage in such beautiful locations.
