Let's talk

Sunset on the Beach

Swainson Productions

The Brief.

We wanted to showcase exactly how stunning really good aerial filming can be. The aim was to demonstrate how the marriage of 4K drone footage, music and careful colour grading can produce really effective results.

The Solution.

Using a 4K camera and professional drone, we chose to film on the coast, at sunset on a perfect winter's day. With a clear blue sky and setting sun, we utilised the astonishing colours created by the sunlight, the water and the beach itself. It was essential to film in 'The Golden Hour' (explained thus by Wikipedia: "...the period of daytime shortly after sunrise or before sunset, during which daylight is redder and softer than when the Sun is higher in the sky").

Using plenty of different angles and smooth turns with the drone, we captured lots of great footage. In editing, the footage was carefully and subtly colour graded just enough to enhance the colours and bring richness to the darker elements. Finally a music track was chosen that was evocative, joyful and extremely catchy.

Filmed at Gibraltar Point, Lincolnshire.
