Uppingham School – An Aerial Perspective
Uppingham School commissioned the Birds Eye View Productions team to capture the school grounds from the air by drone to give a unique perspective of this stunning building. Nestled in the countryside of Rutland, the video starts by flying over the ‘main school’ and then over to the newly built Western Quad. It finishes with some pieces illustrating the fantastic sporting facilities the school has to offer.

What we wanted
We wanted to show off the main school, its stunning buildings whilst capturing the pupils walking between lessons, illustrating a hive of activity. In addition to the main school we wanted to show off the newly developed Western Quad and amazing sporting facilities.
How we achieved it
Starting first thing in the morning, we filmed some of the buildings in the morning sunlight before pupils arrived for Chapel. As Chapel ended, we had the drone flying up high in the air, filming straight down to frame the pupils filtering out from all directions to their first lessons of the day. Some of the other aerial shots were captured during classes, as this gave us a free reign to fly lower down and closer to the buildings whilst moving up and panning slowly around the building.
In the Western Quad, we had the drone already launched in time to film the buzz of activity as pupils moved to their next lessons, relaxed and chatted on the grass, whilst in the beautiful setting of the Western Quad buildings.
And finally, we filmed the sports fields at the end of the summer term and the beginning of the Christmas term highlighting their facilities during the sport afternoons.
Challenges and how we overcame them
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 buildings or capturing shots where the sky and sun would come into play. Furthermore, we ensured the safety of the pupils and staff, briefing them and keeping the drone a safe distance from everyone.
