Revolution Viewing - a digital content and technology agency dedicated to the HE and Home Builder sectors – provided local area photography and videography for a new Taylor Wimpey housing development in Copthorne, near Crawley, West Sussex.

The stills and online film produced showcase the best of the area with the aim of appealing to those moving into the new build homes.

FAME Pro supported Crawley Borough Council with access requests and film permit management as a 1-man crew filmed at various locations across the region: 

  • Copthorne Village - High Street and local amenities
  • Acorn Leisure Centre, Copthorne - exteriors only
  • Three Bridges Train Station - exterior shots only
  • Turner Hill Church of England Primary - exterior shots only
  • Tilgate Park and lake.

Filming took place in June 2022 with less than an hour spent at each location.

"We often have to apply for filming permissions and this one was one of the most straightforward we have processed with the number of locations we needed to get approval for. Having the one point of contact to negotiate all permissions for us was a huge time saver and a great service. Filming at all locations went well…"
