Video Production Cornwall – Why We Love Filming In Cornwall

Video Production Cornwall is what we do! Without wanting to sound like a tourist board advert, Cornwall’s landscape is a never ending feast of beauty. Moorland, huge granite cliffs, white sand beaches, daffodil fields, tin mining stacks, quaint villages, ancient castles…

And no two days of filming in Cornwall are the same – that’s why we love our jobs! One day we may be filming an international music legend in Eden’s biodomes, the next producing a music video in my garage.

The people

Filming hotels, guest houses and restaurants brings us in contact with an intriguing variety of people in locations that we might otherwise never visit. Over recent years we have worked with a kaleidoscope of Cornish businesses, producing web content. Their skills and stories and genuine hospitality and appreciation of our work are reward in itself.

Some of our filming locations

In the past 12 months we have found ourselves filming in a massive variety of locations.
At sea with Rustler Yachts in Falmouth Bay filming their promo videos.
At Goonhilly Satellite Station working on an intriguing project concerning the use of satellite communications.
A perfect summer’s day off Cornwall’s North Coast with Padstow Sea Safaris filming dolphins and seals.

And some of our recent jobs

  Filming in a secret Cornish garden location with Frugi the children’s clothing fashion leaders.
In the underworld of the Halloween Masked Ball.
Filming chefs creating their magic at Porthleven Food Festival.
As part of a team filming Van Morrison for the BBC at Eden.
And producing a series of videos and articles for Motor Boats and Yachting Magazine entitled Secret Cornwall, when we explored hidden secrets of the Cornish coast that even after 40 years living here we didn’t know existed.
While not forgetting the Isles of Scilly. Plus a music video in deep lichen clad woodland. And working with an artist in her moorland studio.

Sailing in Cornwall

However it’s not all sunshine and cream teas! Filming in Cornwall has challenges of its own. The wild Atlantic weather is one. Falmouth’s first ever international powerboat race was almost abandoned and eventually went ahead on a restricted circuit in hideous weather. But we were out there to capture it and have been booked for the 2018 event with a field of around 60 boats expected to compete.
Because Cornish mizzle. It’s what the rest of the country call drizzle but ours is much wetter! Mizzle has put paid to many planned shoots, so we have to be flexible. We sometimes literally shoot at the shortest of notice to grab a weather window.

Then there are seagulls attacking our drone, being chased through a field by a flock of geese…
But when you can look out of your studio window and see dolphins leaping, encounter seals, basking shark, and even a pod of pilot whales in the course of a day’s work, before winding down with a pint of local brew on a Cornish harbourside – well maybe you can understand why video production Cornwall is what we do!
