Hovercam is based on a large site near Plymouth, but our work takes us all over Britain and often beyond. Here’s a selection of our work.
James May’s Cars of the People
Two helicopters working in perfect harmony with several cameras on the ground at Dunkeswell Airfield in Devon to produce a shot with added impact… you’ll have to wait and see when this one is transmitted!
Exciting chases over the water. The boat crews told us we were having more fun up in the air than they were in the sea below them – but we hope to be back for more powerboat racing in the near future!
London Array Wind Farm
The wind farm is some 12 miles off the Kent coast – perfect for sunset pictures of Europe’s largest array of turbines and their ancillary facilities both on and off-shore.
Chasing a getaway car over the Severn Bridge, and following the action from our vantage point above the docklands town of Sharpness, Inside Men gave us a chance to work closely with the director and bring added excitement to this BBC drama series.
Two gorgeous days in Snowdonia, shooting pictures of the Ffestiniog Railway, slate mine workings and of course the mountains. Sunshine and cloud mottled the landscape and made shooting a little tricky, but the results were well worthwhile. We also shot the Cornwall programme in this series, chasing trains over the Tamar bridge, and the dramatic cliffs and seascapes of the West Country.
