Plato Video has proudly worked with Bournemouth Tourism on many occasions since 2013, producing video footage for a variety of its marketing and events. The one which stands out the most has to be its award winning, action packed thriller, the Bournemouth Air Festival, wowing crowds across the resort's beaches with its day and night air displays and entertainment. 

Our brief is to capture the size, variety and spectacle of the event, and how it engages and interacts with the people who have travelled from across the town and country to be here. The official highlights video is designed to recognise and celebrate the success of the event. Primarily, it acts as a tool to promote the following year, with the footage featuring across the multiple social media channels and at official events to patrons, the media, pilots and potential sponsors.  

In the years that we've worked with the event, we always look for new ways to use our footage. New camera angles, perspectives and vantage points help make this happen. For example - we create video selfies by handing a GoPro mounted selfie stick to as many officials as possible, which has included the Festival Makers, stall holders, life guards, police and even the Royal Navy! This allows us to get up close with the very people that make the event happen.

Working with the Bournemouth Air Festival is always a privilege, and we’re proud to support the town and the success of the event with what we do best. 

Official 10 year celebration

The Air Festival first launched in 2008 and to coincide with the tenth event in 2017 we were commissioned to produce a celebratory video in recognition, giving an insight in to the planning, determination and resilience that the event has become famous for.

This video was presented at the official media launch at the Cumberland Hotel in Bournemouth on 16th June 2017.
