Holmethorpe Lagoons


Project Summary

Brief
A corridor of green, nestled between an industrial estate and a power station, intersected by a railway line and overlooked by a landfill site, this hidden gem of a nature reserve is just round the corner of our office in Redhill. We took the opportunity one afternoon to capture some wildlife in action and experiment with motion tracking.

Hurdles

Filming wildlife requires a lot of patience! There was a need to have exquisite shots and the agility to re-frame the shot to accommodate the moving nature that we were trying to film. Additionally, we had to consider the placement of text on screen and the effectiveness of the shot for motion tracking.

Outcome
We think the outcome is rather lovely. It’s a calming and pleasing video which celebrates the wildlife in a refreshing and contemporary style. It also uses motion tracking, which maps the motion of the subjects in your video footage and enables you to create graphics or text that follow that motion. We’ve written a blog all about it if you want to know more.
