Overhead Productions were recently contracted on behalf of ArkMedia to shoot a historic event – the first HS2 engine being delivered to the National College for High Speed Rail.

This engine will be used to train the next generation of engineers, drivers and service personnel who will work on the HS2 rail link.

This operation required meticulous planning as it was conducted within Birmingham City Centre. Overhead Productions had to secure the permissions of all nearby businesses to enable us to perform some of the shots you see above, we also had to liaise constantly with both the emergency services and Air Traffic Control at Birmingham International Airport due to the location of the operation. We were also required to have a dedicated ground crew to help secure the area of operation.

Overhead Productions can assist you with capturing your aerial shots, from planning and risk assessments, through to the actual operation we will cover all bases. Contact us to find out more.
