Plas Y Brenin – Why Snowdonia

Plas Y Brenin are the National Mountain Sports Centre. They are based in Snowdonia in North Wales but are funded by Sport England. Our brief for this film was to showcase Snowdonia as a destination for the adventure sports of mountaineering, climbing, mountain biking, canoeing and kayaking – a dream brief! We were given 9 days of filming which were spread out over a period of 4 weeks to fit in with the PYB program. Post production took about 6 weeks.

Filming: Rob Johnson
Rigging: Bryn Williams
Underwater Camera: Natasha Brooks
Music Score: Oliver Brayshaw


This film received 100,000 views in the first week on Facebook alone with a reach of over 300,000 people (Source: Facebook dashboard)

Here is what the client had to say: “You have done a fantastic job that has surpassed our expectations of what could be achieved, especially in the given time and with concerns over weather etc. I think we now have a truly inspirational film and a great basis on which to build some future projects.” Carlo Forte – Plas Y Brenin

Sine the launch of the original film we have also been employed to create a specific mountain bike edit for social media, this can be viewed below and is a great example of how we can maximise filming days to produce a variety of content.
