Dartmoor Videos for Visit Dartmoor.co.uk
We recently agreed to provide a number of filmed Dartmoor videos for Visit Dartmoor.co.uk. They’re the official tourism website for Dartmoor National Park which attracts around sixty five thousand site visitors a month.
I’d originally filmed a couple of short videos capturing a childs day out exploring one of Dartmoors woodlands and also climbing a Tor.
The Dartmoor videos are great fun to work on and give us an excuse to head out to all of the stunning and unique locations on Dartmoor with our young families.
They also provide a break from the more typical (excellent) 2D and 3D animated business explainer that we regularly work on in our Devon based animation and video production studio.
Quirky / Cute / Fun
I’ve always enjoyed making quirky Dartmoor videos capturing our kids growing up. It’s great to have a further reason to keep raising the bar in the quality of these videos, often filmed on the odd weekend as we explore Dartmoor and the Devonshire countryside.
They allow me to mix a passion for the great outdoors and filming using our studios ever evolving camera equipment. Plus it gives me the excuse I need to invest in some more light weight kit, with my sights set on stabilisation camera rigs and new carbon fibre tripods.
As our animation and film studio is just 15 minutes away from Dartmoor we’re perfectly positioned to capture it’s enchanting mixed environments throughout the seasons.
Pooh sticks and snowmen
The latest in our upcoming number of Dartmoor videos is ‘Pooh sticks and snowmen’, a quirky little video capturing kids playing a short game of Pooh sticks on a winters day in Post Bridge Dartmoor. They also played with the last of the snow to build a snowman.
Pooh sticks is a game played in the classic Winnie the Pooh stories with Christopher Robbin written by A.A.Milne.
Geeky Camera and film kit bit
I used a Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera, Sigma 18-35mm Lens with a Metabones Speedbooster. The video was edited inside of Adobe Premiere Pro and the grade was done using Lumetri.
