Roborace: Human vs Machine - Nicki Shields takes on the DevBot in HK!

At the end of last year we travelled to Hong Kong to shoot an exciting new concept piece for Roborace. Hong Kong is one of those places you need to see to believe, it's skyscraper after skyscraper as far as you can see! Awesome! The shoot saw Formula E & Motorsport presenter Nicki Shields race the DevBot on the tight street circuit in Hong Kong. It was brilliant to work with Nicki and see how dedicated she is to supporting new technologies. Find out what happened in the film below.

Back in September we had the absolute pleasure of being asked to go to Switzerland for the day to shoot aerials for ITVBe's production of Tamara's World.

FORD- Europes Greatest Driving Roads, Norway

One of the best shoots I've ever been on... that's how I left Norway and how I felt I'd leave as soon as the plane landed on the way out. 

We were delighted to be asked by Steve Sutcliffe to work with Ford once again and the new Ford GT on the series 'Europes Greatest Driving Roads'. This time, it was to be the Atlantic Road in Norway. I knew looking at pictures before going out that it was going to be stunning but didn't quite realise just how stunning till we arrived. 

The best way to experience this is really, just to watch the film. Get it full screen, turn the sound up and take a look below to see some BTS pictures from the shoot...

What a car! Take a look at some of the BTS below
