Aerial filming captures Aintree racecourse for exciting CGI race for the ITV grand national race of champions.
Back in April 2016 we were tasked with supplying aerial film of the Antrim racecourse for an exciting project that would be aired on ITV for the grand national race of champions. Working alongside Inspired Entertainment, the film we captured has been used to track 40 CGI horses and their riders through the entire race track consisting of Echer’s Brook, Valentine’s, The Canal Turn and all 30 jumps.
The programme ‘The Virtual Grand National 2017’ will be aired on ITV4 at 8pm on Friday, April 7 and be repeated at 11.30am after ‘The Opening Show’ on ITV4 on Grand National day. Highlights will be featured on ITV’s first ever coverage of the Grand National.
Equipment used: The DJI S900 is our go to aerial system for work such as this. Combined with a Panasonic GH4 this system still rivals most drones on the market today.
