Helicopter summer

We’ve had a lot of fun over the summer making films for a couple of long-standing clients Honeywell Skyforce and Specialist Aviation Services.

For Honeywell, we produced a video showcasing their Sentinel helicopter navigation system. This is a follow up to the video we made in 2009 for their police-based Observer system.

The Sentinel film was shot in 4x days in the UK and Seattle, USA and featured 3x case studies (a private customer, an executive charter and the Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance) and a sequence at the Honeywell Flight Test Centre at Paine Field, Everett, just north of Seattle, USA.

As well as air-to-air footage in 2x of the UK locations, we also shot brochure stills on each day.

For SAS, we updated a 12’00” corporate video that we made, also in 2009, to celebrate their 25 years in business. We shot sequences with new clients Essex and Herts Air Ambulance Trust and Trinity House, a 500-year old organisation that looks after the lighthouses around England and Wales. We shot new sequences at SAS HQ in Gloucestershire.

Once again we filmed air-to-air footage on the 2x client days including stills of the Trinity House helicopter landing on the Needles lighthouse, Isle of Wight and load-lifting from the Trinity House ship Galatea.
