Crown Estate – Mountain Biking
Mountain Bike Film: Full Film Due November 2016 – This is the 20 second social media trailer.
At the beginning of 2016 we were commissioned by The Crown Estate to make a mountain bike film that showcased Swinley Forest Trail Centre. The Crown Estate own the forest and our job was to sell it as a venue for people to escape London and enjoy the forest. The clients were keen to showcase it as a year round venue and so the shoot was split into two days in the winter and then followed up with two further days in the summer. We were helped massively by Swinley Bike Hub as they got some brilliant riders in, supplied the bikes and local knowledge and generally looked after us for the 4 days we were on location.
Our brief right from the word go was to produce a film that inspired people to ride and made them want to visit Swinley Forest, this was deemed to be more important than trying to provide an infomercial and it made for some great filming. We had a small crew of 3 of us and lucked out with the weather each time.
