Sustrans Scotland – The Caledonia Way cycling route

Here’s a new promotional film we produced for Sustrans Scotland, and the launch of their new cycling route.

The Caledonia Way – National Cycle Route 78, runs from Campbeltown to Inverness, through Oban and Fort William, covering 237 miles alongside some of Scotland’s most stunning landscapes. You’ll cycle by the banks of Loch Ness, experience the views of Arran from Kintyre, see the standing stones of Kilmartin Glen, follow the Crinan Canal and ride the locks of Neptune’s Staircase.

A special thanks to all the volunteers, supporters, partners and members of the public involved in filming this video and being part of this project.

Great Northern Warehouse promotional film

Here’s a short promotional video we produced on behalf of Deansgate Media Group, to help highlight the attractions at the Great Northern Warehouse this Christmas in Manchester.

We finished the day off with a few frames at All Star Lanes (with some Long Island Ice Teas thrown in for good measure) and a wee skate on the Manchester Ice Rink.

As it was a run-and-gun shoot, we mostly opted for using natural light, with a little kick from some battery powered LED panels. I decided to shoot with Sony A7s, as it’s small and lightweight and is wonderful in low light. We used the Sony FS700 for the slow motion shots.

Park Lives

An initiative developed by Coca Cola, ParkLives is a free and easy way for people of all ages to get the best out of their local park. It includes a whole host of activities from tai chi to donkey grooming!

Coolbox worked with PR agency Citypress to produce two social media videos highlighting some of the fantastic activities ParkLives has to offer in Manchester’s parks.

Spectra – Aberdeen Festival of Light 2017

Once a year, Aberdeen’s award winning and stunning Festival of Light: Spectra returns to the city to brighten up the winter evenings. Bringing together leading international artists with established Scottish collaborators the festival delivers a light spectacular to animate several key locations including Union Terrace Gardens, the atmospheric Kirk of St Nicholas as well as iconic Marischal College.

Coolbox worked with arts-led production agency Curated Place to produce a festival highlights video, to entice visitors to attend next year’s events.
