THE PILOT

The Pilot is a short Film production by Lee Blanchflower, owner of Blanc Creative. It was shot entirely on location at Old Buckenham Airfield, (a former Royal Air Force Station used during World War II by The US for strategic bombing campaigns) located south East of Attleborough in Norfolk. The Pilot was a spontaneous production filmed over only four hours and documents Civilian Pilot, Simon Beckett-Allen as he takes to the skies for the afternoon in his own aircraft.

Using predominantly hand held shooting techniques with some monopod stabilisation, the entire Film was captured on a single Canon 5D MKIII with Samyang 24mm & 85mm Cinema lenses.The project was initially going to be stills based, but the airfield held so much character, that Lee Blanchflower could not resist the opportunity to document Simon’s flight through moving image.

Working on the fly and in a solo capacity in strong cross winds and inside a small aircraft during flight raised difficulties with audio production so a decision was taken to either use a separate voice over or dispense with audio in favour of a music score.

Final Cut X was used for editing and graded through Red Giant Magic Bullet  and Pixelfimstudios Plugins.
