We were asked to create a promotional film a few weeks ago for the the National Museum of Wales. They were holding an event by the Welsh National Opera in the museum and we were asked to create a short film showcasing the day. We covered the event with multiple cameras and created an interview based film that will be posed shortly.
For the opening sequence of the film I suggested that we try and get come aerial filming done of the museum as this always gives the promo film that added production value. After liaising with Cardiff Council’s film unit they suggested that the best place to fly from that will allow us to adhere to the minimum distance rules would be the grounds of Cardiff Castle and Bute Park.
We got to the Castle at sunrise so that it was still closed to the public and managed to grab some fantastic shots for the promotional film. While we were there we took the opportunity to grab some aerial photographs of the Cardiff and the castle. Here are some of the results.
