English Heritage Tour

commissions documentary

​I was commissioned by the Big Journey Company to produce a short documentary following a group of American tourists on their English Heritage Tour, run in conjunction with Diamond Resorts. 

I travelled with them for 10 days and filmed their experiences along the way. 

Before the shoot I contacted all the locations to arrange permissions and put together a kit that would allow me to be very discreet in some quite sensitive attractions including: Buckingham Palace, Stonehenge and Highclere Castle, otherwise know as Downton Abbey.

The guests reactions were to be an essential element of the film so it was vital for me to establish good relationships throughout the tour so they would feel comfortable around me and open up on camera. 

The film was edited and colour graded in Adobe Premiere and exported in multiple formats for web publication.
