We were extremely honoured and privileged to create a stunning aerial video for Southend United Football Club. The video was filmed over two days, including one night to make sure we got the best media we could to represent this stunning ground. Since 1952, this has been the home ground for Southend United Football Club and has been the home of thousands of Southend fans over the decades.
Supporting The Shrimpers
The job itself consisted of only one drone, one Remote Pilot and two Spotters. We arrived on site and first planned our storyboard to make sure we took advantage of all the different angles this stadium had to offer. We wanted to make sure we captured “big picture” scenes like the “orbit” of the stadium and the “flyaway”. We also wanted to capture the “detail” that makes this stadium special that its fans can related to, such as hovering over the seats and the filming the clock above the goal post. Naturally, the most important part was, of course, the pitch – this is where our editor, Harry, lead the way and guided the remote pilot and his crew to capture the rising, twisting, bird’s eye view of the pitch at both day and night from the exact same position in the air.
The final edited edition two nine different drafts and hours of editing to get it absolutely correct but Harry never gave up and was not prepared to send it to our Commercial Team until the video was 100%. We also had to work closely with London Southend Airport Air Traffic Control to gain the necessary approvals to operate in the Air Traffic Zone Controlled Airspace and be able to operate up to 1,000′ above surface level. Combining this informing the local police and getting the necessary signatures from the club itself the final outcome was this stunning video below.
