Looking for somewhere new to visit in the South West? Well, look no further, we have just the place for you…We recently discovered the charms of rural Dorset whilst filming for our client Visit Dorset. We arrived early, just as the sun rose – which gave us the full day to film. And its a great feeling to see the world whilst most people are still sleeping. You feel lucky to have somewhere so special to yourself. So with a welcome cup of coffee in our hands, we started the location shoot  as the early morning mist cleared.

Iconic locations.

The film is called ‘Explore Dorset’ and we were lucky enough to do that. We filmed at some fantastic and iconic locations. Our first spot, Golds Hill, Shaftesbury, was famously the setting Ridley Scott’s Hovis bread advert. It was once voted the favourite advertisement of all time. We also filmed at Cern Abbas, and captured its world famous giant, cut into the hillside.  With so many iconic landmarks, like Sherborne  below, we captured some of our best footage with our drone.

Aerial video

We took to the air to get some great views, sharing the skies with swallows at Sherborne castle and kestrels at Colmer’s Hill. Aerial video is the best way to get a view of a location and gives a great insight into destinations that visitors might not otherwise have. See our blog about aerial video. But our video wasn’t only about the views. Our brief was to capture some of the great activities on offer to those lucky enough to visit Dorset.

Busy GoPro

And at whatever pace suits you, there’s a wide choice of activities in rural Dorset. From cycling to flying, off-road quad biking to donkey walking, it has it all. With this range of activities on offer, our action camera was an essential tool in our kit. Filming with a GoPro is a great way to get a capture action. So, attached to helmets, donkeys, bikes and quad bikes our GoPro had a very busy and thrilling day. And all in all it wasn’t too bad for us either – we got to work in some fantastic locations.
