Nant-Y-Glyn Forest School Promo Video

Project Lead : Group Collaboration

Head into the woods with cameras!!!

Brief : Film a short promo video for the Nant-y-Glyn Forest School to feature on the top of their website and at possible promotional events.

Armed with cameras & grip gear we trudged off into the hills behind Colwyn Bay.

We met Greg from the forest school in the at the fire pit and he gave us a quick overview and introduction to the forest school. After collecting different types of firewood and building a nice pile in the fire pit, Greg showed us how to light the fire. Sausages (cooked by Dan) and hot drinks were soon underway.

The crew explored a mixture of set, planned shots and improvised angles and experiments with the cameras. These included some nice fireside tracking pans and ‘through the woods’ sequences on the camera stabiliser. These combined with the pre-planned ideas and careful comping and editing by Paul and the fantastic soundtrack produced by Eden, have made this short promo a really effective tool for the Greg & Delyth’s Forest School.[/box]
