The Edinburgh Santa Run

By - Richard - 15th December 2014

We wanted to know what it looked like having 2000 people dressed as Santa run round Princes Street Garden in Edinburgh. So we went along to the 2014 Santa run and made the film above.

Shot on the Panasonic GH4 at 96 frames per second with the Tamron 24-70mm f2.8 lens.
