SOHO House Festival

What a hot day on Hampstead Heath, filming The Soho Festival 2018 with The Manic Street Preachers, Rita Ora and Nile Rogers & Chic for 7A Films.

This was twelve hours of full on location scouting, flying, filming and battery charging while 5000 festival goers partied into the night. Working with English Heritage at Kenwood House and a full production team to ensure all permissions were in place. Working in an environment with so many people we had to ensure we flew our Inspire 2 drone at the regulatory distance of greater than 150m from those party goers who were not under our control. Filming into the night in 4K with our 45mm MFT lens meant this wasn’t a problem for the production team who could zoom in post.
