Creative visual content for a world famous event.

Crate47’s event photographers and video makers have been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to capture the sculptural centrepiece at Goodwood Festival of Speed every year. Littlehampton Welding Limited fabricates and installs a brand new Gerry Judah sculpture at the Goodwood Festival of Speed each year. These feature some of the most prestigious car brands in the world. Each individual sculpture is completely different from the last and invariably inspires awe and delight in the many visitors to the annual automotive festival. Our event photographers go to great heights to capture every artwork in detail.

Event photography that covers all bases, from start to finish.

Our event photographers and filmmakers have recorded each of these impressive sculptures over a number of years. Using a combination of time-lapse and still photography, together with video, we document both the workshop fabrication and on-site construction, as well as the finished pieces. In addition to a final video, we create engaging sequences of images of each sculpture for Littlehampton Welding’s website and social media.

We created a promo video for the reveal of the sculpture at the 2016 festival launch which showed tantalising shots of the BMW sculpture. Our videographers took aerial footage with our state-of-the-art drone so we could film using full 360º rotation, producing some stunning panoramic views and dramatic shots taken from unusual vantage points. Our event photographers have continued to do this for every subsequent year.

Content creation for some of the top names in the Automotive Industry.

Our videomakers and event photographers have had the pleasure of working with some of the very best in the automotive industry at Goodwood; allowing us to create some visually stunning content for both BMW and Porsche directly, as well as the renowned sculptor Gerry Judah.

Working so closely with Littlehampton Welding gives us behind-the-scenes access which has resulted in film footage unlike any other. We can cover the process from the very first stages of receiving the metal, all the way through to site delivery and erection of the finished sculpture.

It’s always a pleasure seeing my Goodwood sculptures on film, given they are only up for a couple of weeks. The process of their fabrication and installation by Littlehampton Welding is nothing short of heroic, therefore fantastic it’s on record. The care and execution by Crate47 in their film making is exemplary and visually exciting, and I look forward to future collaborations.”
