HSBC Cycle Ride

This HSBC Cycle Ride promotional video was commissioned by British Cycling to promote the HSBC Cycle Rides taking place in Edinburgh and Glasgow.

“This is a huge moment for cycling in Great Britain,” said Ian Drake, CEO of British Cycling. “Working together with HSBC UK, we will provide the encouragement and opportunities to make cycling the most popular activity and sport of choice in Great Britain. We want to help transform an increasingly inactive and unhealthy nation through cycling.”

British Cycling and HSBC UK will deliver events and programmes across local communities, towns and free to enter mass participation events to get millions of people on their bikes.

Commonwealth Games XX Venue Films

Last month I created Glasgow Commonwealth Games films for each of the Commonwealth venues on behalf of Game on Scotland. I filmed world-class sporting venues across Glasgow from the Emirates Areas through to the Athletes’ Village.

The film was produced by Metro Broadcast and I shot all the greeenscreen over the course of a day at Commonwealth House and often shot two or three venues a day. So a tight turn-around, filming with a sound recordist and a director. All the films were shot on the Canon 5D mk3 and where time  allowed I used a slider, steadicam and crane – all my own kit which is also available for hire.

Since I didn’t edit this series myself I may cut a quickie highlights film of my favourite bits if I find the time in the coming weeks. But I’m off the the Highlands tomorrow morning shooting documentary  ‘Where You’re Meant to Be‘ – a Scottish Musical road trip. The film is part of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games Cultural Programme, and the ensuing film is set to premiere after the close of the Games, in late August. So if you’re near the Village Hall at Drumnadrochit tomorrow night you can still get tickets.
