One Month To Go - London Welsh RFC

Last month, I had a free weekend back in my hometown of Twickenham and spotted it coincided with a London Welsh home game.

I sent a quick email over to the London Welsh media manager to see if it would be fine to fly my drone at London Welsh's home ground of Old Deer Park pre-game - & after checking I had the necessary PfAW, and after I talked them through my pre-match risk assessment and safety considerations, they agreed.

I wanted to edit together something like this video, made at the WT20 in India while working for the ICC, but the game wasn't really big enough to warrant that sort of production so, instead, the video focussed on the big Xmas eve, local derby clash with London Scottish


Shot in one day & edited that evening, the video will be used to promote the game with London Welsh releasing it on YouTube with month to go until the clash.

I also edited other versions from the one day's worth of filming, creating shorter bitesize videos (for social sharing), so that London Welsh have been able to promote every home match and every home match still to come this year (although you'll have to keep following London Welsh on Twitter to see these upcoming videos!)

On top I provided London Welsh with photography from the game, shared directly from my camera to phone, edited and then sent to the London Welsh media manager, who could then post them onto social right as the action happened.

Images included photos to use at the final whistle - shared moments after the game ended & for which you don't need Twitter's insights to see which got the better engagement for a post without photos vs high quality imagery 👇
