Earlier this week we were back in Scotland to film a new promotional film on behalf of our friends at Scene & Herd PR and Marketing for the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board.
The AHBD are a statutory levy board, funded by farmers, growers and others in the supply chain, whose purpose is to equip levy payers with independent, evidence-based information and tools to grow, become more competitive and sustainable.
The two day shoot took our crew to Auchenheath Farm in Lanarkshire to talk to a dairy farmer, a cereal farmer in Fettercairn, and an Environmental and Biochemical Scientist at The James Hutton Institute in Dundee. The three interviews will be edited into a short case study film to show levy payers how their contribution is being spent, and provide real examples of people it’s helped in the past.
As well as our trusty Sony FS700 (photo above on the glidecam), we’ve recently upgraded our B-cam to the Sony A7s (main photo above). This was the first time we’d used the cameras together on a shoot, and so far we’re really impressed with the results. They cut together perfectly, and the A7s is an absolute demon in low light environments.
