On Location in Kent
Kent is well known for its stunning beaches, dramatic castles and sleepy villages, but it’s also the home to a forgotten industrial heritage, perfect as a dramatic shoot location.
We were approached by UPG to create two promo videos for their client Rochester Drinks. The promos would consist of a workout shoot and a shoot in a kitchen to showcase the health benefits to someone who is active but also to show how the drink can be incorporated into your daily life.
We set about looking for an interesting location to shoot the workout promo which would feature an actor working out and then drinking a 5-day health shot. The client suggested an old torpedo silo that he knew of in Kent which was to be a potential future office for the company. The silo was long, thin, dark and also had no power – not ideal for a shoot but certainly not insurmountable for our producer, Tom Marner.
We set up the Kent shoot on a warm day in late spring and the lack of light leant itself to a dramatic and exciting shoot of our actor working out before have a shot of the ginger drink, showing how it fits with an active lifestyle.
Filming Part Two
The second part of the shoot took place again in Kent, nearby at the client’s house where we set up in their kitchen. This was to film a second video which was aimed more at lifestyle use of the drink. We used another actor to show how the drink can be incorporated into your everyday life.
Here at DreamingFish we are no stranger to undertaking shoots across the country and have shot at a number of locations in Kent over the years. Most recently we filmed case studies in Sevenoaks and Gillingham for our lovely client Reward Gateway. These films were to showcase the companies at their annual awards ceremony, The Engagement Excellence Awards, which is open to clients of the company.
We’ve also recently shot an interview in Ramsgate for Spinal Muscular Atrophy as part of a series of shooter which will be edited into a new brand film for the charity.
