It’s Time for Sport – Merchiston Castle School

By - Richard - 15th November 2015

Earlier this year, Merchiston Castle School in Edinburgh approached us to produce a film to help launch a fundraising campaign for their new sports facilities. The multi-million pound campaign will see the inclusion of a new swimming pool, sports hall and all weather astroturf rugby pitch.

Featuring 30 Merchiston pupils and a current member of the Scottish rugby squad, the film was shot over a number of months earlier this year. It culminates in a 3 dimensional realisation of the new facilities filmed from the air. Click here to view the film on Merchiston’s vimeo channel here.
