Posts from October 2017

A long-term family friend recently asked if we could create a short film about something very dear to his heart — a wooden bureau that took him many years of hard work during his spare time to design and build as a gift for his daughter. As he now lives very far from his daughter, he rarely gets the chance to enjoy the fruits of his handiwork and so this video would serve as a permanent reminder of the bureau which he can take with him everywhere. 
 
Even if one has no background in carpentry, it's hard not to be bowled-over by the beauty of this piece of furniture. The attention to detail is impeccable, the fit and finish is extraordinary, and the amount of thought that went into its design and execution is plain to see.

Earlier in the summer (yes, it seems a long time ago now doesn't it!), we were commissioned by The Dower House Nursing Home in Winchester, Hampshire, to produce a new promotional video as part of a marketing refresh for their website. 
 
The video was to include aerial footage of their site to show off its beautiful green setting in the Hampshire countryside, as well ground-level footage taken in and around their care home.

It's not often we share posts that are purely of an aesthetically pleasing nature, but here at Horizon Imaging we still enjoy taking aerial photos for the fun of it! 
 
Last week our Director, David Hogg enjoyed a holiday in Mauritius and he took a portable fold-up drone with him - the technologically state-of-the-art DJI Mavic Pro.
