Short film for The Edinburgh Academy

By - Richard - 30th August 2023

One School, three campuses.

Over the summer we produced this short film for the Edinburgh Academy, which aimed to showcase the three different campuses within the school.

Filmed during June, we would love to be able to say that the weather is always like this in Edinburgh. Alas, that wouldn’t be telling the truth.

Using extensive aerial filming, the client wanted the film to showcase the prime location for the school – right in the heart of Edinburgh’s New Town.
