Filming with UVEX and Winter Paralympians Millie Knight & Brett Wild

Filming a corporate for Blueberry Picture’s with UVEX provides inspirational day of filming.

Filming a corporate for a company that make ski goggles, just one of the briefs we received when collaborating with London based Blueberry Pictures.

We were hired to supply the cinematography, lighting and sound. You tend to think it’s going to be fairly standard fare, some branded location b-roll, establishers, packshots, interviews, cutaways etc. They can become quite formulaic, so it’s refreshing when we’re lucky to meet some amazing characters that brighten up our day and are a joy to film with, people like Millie Knight.

Millie’s gold winning brownies!

It’s also worth noting that part of the crucial technology that kept us running throughout filming were Millie’s brownies! Quite simply heaven, possibly the best we’ve ever tasted. If you want the recipe, you’ll have to ask Millie.

UVEX technology aids golden success

Our interview with Millie was focused on how the technology in both her ski goggles and her helmet aided not only her sight, but muscle fatigue, aerodynamics and communication.

It became apparent very early on, that the UVEX technology in her equipment was exceptional.
Anti fogging, specialised lens coatings, light but incredibly strong build, aerodynamic, interchangeable lenses, bluetooth headset communication.., all technologies providing Millie with more time to focus on skiing down a mountain at 100km with only 5-10% vision.

Where’s the video??

The video is currently in production at Blueberry Pictures but once it’s done, and if we’re allowed to (you don’t always get to display what you make) we will update this page with a link to the final film.
