I have been working with Our Bury St. Edmunds pretty much since I started out freelance and since then I’ve produced a number of videos for them of their excellent events in my home town. The first video I put together for them was a simple tourism-style promo of the town, showing off the mix of history, culture and shopping that Bury has to offer. That video is one of my most watched to date with over 50,000 views.
In 2014 I was asked to update the video to show more of what the town has to offer as well as some of the new additions to the high street. It was my first project using my new Mac Pro editing system and it gave me the opportunity (due to it’s power) to experiment with some 4K time lapses. The first shot of the video is my absolute favourite, of the iconic Abbey Gardens and Cathedral. It’s one of Bury’s most beautiful spots and with the right weather I was able to shoot a great time-lapse to open the video.
