Tennis Academy Scotland film

By - Richard - 17th December 2015


Recently we’ve been working on a short film about the Tennis Academy Scotland at Merchiston Castle School. The prestigious Academy is home to 19 players aged 11-18 years old and is currently ranked second in the UK and sixth in the world for schools tennis. Filmed over the course of a few weeks at Merchiston and Craiglockhart sports centre in Edinburgh, the film shines a light on the routine of some of the brightest up-and-coming tennis talent.

Filmed on the Canon EOS C300 and EOS C100, Canon XF305, Panansonic GH4 and Ronin-M.
