During the festive period we were out and about filming at Musselburgh Races Course to produce a short highlights video of their New Year’s Day races. We were to capture the buzz, the excitement and the social aspect of the overall day. We arrived early to set up and to capture a few establishment shots, which we used in the intro. We also were very fortunate to have the winter sun beaming down. Despite people nursing their hangovers, the day went really well and everyone was out having fun – which was good for us to capture. We took one cameraman along on the day with the Sony fs7 and captured everything we could and were allowed to. One issue for us was we were not allowed to film the live horse racing itself, so we had to collect that footage from RacingUK.
After the day had ended, we were straight into the editing suite to pull this together as the client was wanting the video the next morning to pop out to their social media channels. The video turned out great and the client was thoroughly pleased. Despite it being freezing it was a pleasure to work on this job for Musselburgh Races.
