Something Curious is brewing in Ashford town.
Flyby Photography were commissioned to capture progress film of the Curious Brewery development in Ashford, Kent. We have been asked to film the site pre works, and once the development is complete.
We love being involved with high profile local developments, and are very excited about this project.
The planning and risk mitigation was especially difficult for a relativity small site, located on a busy crossroad, with the high speed rail line to the rear.
Airspace is class G- with no NOTAMS at the time of filming, we contacted network rail, and notified them of our intentions, and agreed to mitigate risk by keeping a set distance from their infrastructure during flights. Local police were also informed.
The visit was postponed for quite some time, with the Brewery, and ourselves wanting to hold on for a calm day, with blue skies, (surprisingly hard to come by in march!)
We utilized the services of our creative camera operator, Toby, to capture the most cinematic footage possible, and allowed myself at the pilot in charge that day to just focus on the safe flight of the missions, and to maintain situational awareness working in such a congested area.
Watch this space for updates towards the end of the year, and be sure to try the new 'curious brew' re-fermented with Champagne yeast and a dosage of rare Nelson Sauvin hops creating a delightful, sharp larger.
