Skyhawk AP contracted for first TV commercial… Oxford-based production company Padget Media chose Conwy in sunny North Wales as the aerial location for a Nisa Local supermarket ad, contracting us to shoot the opening and closing shots. 56 takes/runs throughout dawn and sunrise gave the client plenty of options for that ‘town wakes up’ atmosphere. Coming soon to an ad break near you.
We all met at 5am, as we needed to catch the magic hour. It took us an hour and a bit to climb up Bryn Euryn. Okay it might not be Ben Nevis but at 5 am, it was cold, dark, slippery, muddy it felt like Ben Nevis HONEST ! The breakfast delivery went down a treat at 7am, which raised morale.
We were all done and dusted by lunch time. Excellent team effort.
Thanks to Jeremy, Tim, Mya and Anwen.
Testimonial by Mya Padget (Director, Padget Media Ltd.)
“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Skyhawk AP on a number of aerial video shoots and have always been extremely impressed with the professional way in which they conduct their business, both from a legal and safety viewpoint (following the strict protocol set out by the Civil Aviation Authority) as well as from a technical and aesthetic viewpoint, with the video footage they are able to achieve being some of the best I’ve seen, showing the beautiful Welsh scenery from a unique bird’s-eye view. I will certainly be working with Skyhawk AP again on future projects and I am confident that the Welsh Government will benefit hugely from partnering with the best in the business.”
