Scotland Wind Farm


​I was commissioned to produce a short film on the construction of the Clashindarroch Wind Farm in Aberdeenshire, Scotland for Swedish energy company Vattenfall.

I spent 2 days in July 2014 on site filming interviews, timelapses and illustrative footage as well as trying to capture a turbine being lifted into position. Unfortunately, due to weather, the operation was delayed so I had to come up with a plan to cover the procedure. A time-lapse solution was decided upon, I rigged the equipment and trained Senvion engineer, Dean, to set the camera going when the lifting was due to start.

All went according to plan and the footage was compiled and edited into a 5 minute cut.
