The Four Seasons Hotel in Hampshire are very unique in that they have an amazing equestrian centre that allows their guests to experience the joys of horse riding in a safe and secure environment. Birds Eye View Productions were excited to be able to capture the equestrian facilities from the air and present the centre in a unique way.
We wanted to show off day to day workings of the equestrian centre, its proximity to the main hotel, the stables, the menagerie and additional riding arena, private lessons and outstanding facilties. We wanted to film a lesson and also have running commentary with the video to add further details for the viewer.
How we achieved it
Starting in the morning, we launched our drone and proceeded to capture the school and its proximity to the main hotel. We flew slowly whilst panning the camera to create some lovely smooth shots and had the camera at 50fps to give us options in post-production. The ground filming combined some macro shots and general visuals of the day to day activities of the school.
We wanted to capture an active equestrian centre and captured a lesson, which we had pre-arranged with the school, to ensure the pupil was happy to be filmed.
Furthermore, we filmed inside the various rooms that the guests can visit and where possible filmed the staff executing their duties. We also wanted to film the horses as they were relaxing in their stables and being washed down after a lesson and show off the way they are looked after.
Challenges and how we overcame them
As always, the main challenge when aerial filming was the bright sunlight on the camera lens. We used different ND filters depending on whether we were filming directly down on to the school or capturing shots where the sky and sun would come into play. Furthermore, we ensured that the school were made aware when we were about to launch the drone so as to not spook any of the horses.

They provided a swift turnaround, were patient and professional about required edits and listened to our brief and our aims for having aerial footage. We have ended up with a brilliant addition to our digital marketing material - they managed to capture the feel of the school in a minute and a half! Thank you Birds Eye View.
