This week saw the last day of shooting for one of our upcoming films for the Wakefield Grammar School Foundation. The foundation provides private education for co-ed toddlers of 4 years at Mulberry House nursery and single sex education for those upto 19 years of age at Queen Elizabeth Grammar School (QEGS) for boys and Wakefield Girls High School (WGHS). All of which deliver some of the best learning practices and results in the country, so it’s been a fantastic environment to work in and capture.

Double 8 had produced a series of 6 films for the foundation in 2008 in the form of a DVD so it’s been great to return and re-imagine a new film which encapsulates the journey of the schools in their current state. It’s been a wonderful opportunity to challenge conventional takes on educational films and embrace the importance and beauty of the journey itself. We’re really excited to get working on the post-production and will be posting the final film in the next couple of months. In the meantime; here are a few behind the scenes shots and video from our day using the Octocopter for the amazing aerial footage.
