Horizon AP have been working with ITV filming for the new series of Vera. One of the sequences involved a police car chase and subsequent foot chase at night through a wooded area. The Vera team wanted to replicate what a police helicopter would see with a thermal camera.
The Horizon AP team sourced, mounted and tested a thermal camera suitable for the job and flew in the evening to capture shots of the car chase, the subjects leaving the vehicles and the chase through the trees on foot. This involved some difficult flying through trees with very little light, and some tough camera work to frame the subjects. The Vera team were on a tight schedule and we got most of the shots done in one take.
