Two projects, one location and in an area that I frequent on a regular basis.
Robot Love Creative volunteered to come along and capture aerial footage of Mugstock Festival, located in Mugdock Country Park situated in the north of Glasgow.
The initial brief was to generate aerial footage of the area and festival grounds, but it quickly evolved into a small production of a unique part of the festival. A band called Orkestra Del Sol were playing a wee low key gig in the grounds of Mugdock Castle. We were asked to do the aerial filming of the gig, our buddy Sean Corbett did the ground steady cam work and later, I took on the task to produce a small edit of the gig in the castle. Resulting in Orkestra Del Sol – Game of Drones.
A couple of days after the festival weekend, I was contacted by Optomen Productions USA asking for some footage of the castle for a History Channel production – Mysteries at the Castle Episode 309 “Rob Roy: The Scottish Robin Hood”. Now as the footage from the festival had a load of tents and party people bouncing about, we were able to return to the site and managed to capture some lovely moody castle footage to suit the requirements of the production.
