The Dorset Plane Pull is an annual charity event like no other.
Hosted near the sunny south coast at Bournemouth Airport, the challenge for each competing team of up to 20 people is to pull a fully operational Boeing 737 passenger jet, weighing in at 35,000 Kg, across a distance of 50 meters. This mighty effort raises thousands of pounds for charities both locally and nationally.
Since 2013 Plato Video have been proud to be part of the event as its official videographers. Each year we produce the official highlights film and until 2015 also produced an official DVD to help raise it's profile and raise further funds. Below is our highlights film from 2016.
Following the 2016 event we changed things up slightly and replaced the DVD with a series of short videos that could be shared on social media to celebrate all of the teams that took part and encourage them to share with their friends and fans. Each video, roughly 1 minute in length, features one of the competing teams, along with the event's own personal host and expert interviewer, Colin van Geffan. His task is to commentate each pull and interview the teams both before and after to get a full sense of the fun, excitement and achievement that comes with it. Here’s an example featuring the winners of 2016, team Al of a Pull.
Now with an inventory of video content for use as promotional assets, the Dorset Plane Pull’s social media team have been sharing one of these videos per week since May 2017 in the hope of building awareness and hype for the forthcoming event on Monday August 28th 2017.
