One of the interesting aspects of working in video is the variety of unexpected activities we can find ourselves filming. 5 years ago this month that turned out to be filming the glass craftsman Will Shakespeare. Not shy of the camera, he has featured on several TV shows including Inside The Factory and Kirstie Allsopp's Homemade series.
Hot work shooting next to the glass furnaces, and wary of melting our lenses, we shot at high speed to produce attractive slomo shots of the glass blowing process to make a glass apple for a Dental Healthcare promo. And once we had wrapped, Will let us have a (rather unsuccessful) go at glass blowing ourselves.
Hurrah! We've started filming again and it feels great - Dunkerswell Airfield a few weeks back and looking ahead we're filming more toys promos and have a couple of new on site corporate jobs in the offing. Some sense of normality at last :)

Safe distancing measures in place of course. With Coco on the crew and Iris as lead talent, where there's a will, there's a way...

To commemorate VE day we're sharing one of Dan's fantastic paintings - this one shows the Seafire (the Royal Naval version of Spitfire). Nice work Dan!
We can hardly believe that it's a whole year ago today that we were filming for the Lift The Baby campaign for NHS Creative - it was a great day!
Pilot the puppy looks at home already - first day in the office...
