Recent Work – Bedford Kite & Car Festival With Run Bedford 10K

We were approached by Bedford Borough Council to create a short PR video to showcase the Bedford Kite and Car Festival as well as incorporating the Run Bedford 10K race.
This video was also featured in the Bedford Independent news coverage of the events and that can be viewed by clicking here.

How We Filmed It

We were approached with only a couple of days to go before the events were to start, but this is never a problem for ADC Films as we are always ready with our film equipment to go!
We decided to obviously use the drone to open and close the video. In order to capture the cars we used a camera gimbal which gave us maximum flexibility on the day, as well as providing smooth footage when moving the camera. To reduce glare and to really “pop” the colours of the cars we also used a polariser on each lens.
The kites were filmed on a tripod using a long zoom lens, which was needed as they were very high in the sky!
Finally the Run Bedford 10K road race was filmed using a drone to capture the scale of the event as well as ground camera to give some more perspective.
This a a fun weekend to film and we hope to be back next year!
