The Worshipful Company of Furniture Makers and I have a long-lasting friendship – in fact, I have made eight videos for this wonderful organisation so far! It was business as usual for me, then, when I was asked to film a fundraising event video for their charity golf day.

You’ll find some of my other work with the Worshipful Company of Furniture Makers in their corporate video here. My most recent project with the team was probably one of the most enjoyable – I headed up to Brocket Hall in Hertfordshire to capture the laughter and sportsmanship as the team played a round of golf together to raise money for good causes.
My brief was simple: capture the day, the fun, the challenges, and of course, the awards. The event video would serve not only as a fun reminder of the organisation’s day out, but also to encourage more members to take part in the event next year.
Located in Welwyn Garden City, Brocket Hall was a wonderful location to shoot, even if we were a little let down by the typical English rainy weather! Thankfully this didn’t dampen the spirits of the golfers, and they were only too happy for me to follow them round in groups as they teed off.
I also took the opportunity to get some wide shots of the course itself, complete with its vast selection of plants and wildlife. It was great fun getting close up shots of all the plants and water – even more so of the ducks! I also had a few chats with some of the players to get their two cents on how the day had gone for them. After a hard day’s play, the gents enjoyed the famed “19th hole” as the awards were distributed.
When I’d got all my footage together, I added some upbeat music over the top to make it a little more engaging. I managed to get the final cut over to the group just two days after the event, and I’m pleased to say part of the footage even made it into the company’s main corporate video.
Once again, it was lovely to work with the Worshipful Company of Furniture Makers and I hope to see them again soon. If you’d like to see your company featured in a corporate video, get in touch with me today to discuss packages.
