Into The Woods we go...
We made this short video for our friends at Into The Woods outdoor nursery ahead of the opening of their second forest school at Kenwood House in Hampstead.
The children at Into the Woods spend the whole day outdoors enjoying a unique education. We wanted to show people what a day in the woods was like and to capture the children’s experience on camera.
We started our filming day with quite a lot of equipment, but quickly realised that trying to set up shots and direct the action didn’t work with a cast of 2-4 years olds.
In the end we filmed most of the video on an iPhone 7. It enabled us to react quickly and capture the best moments of the day, and we were much less intrusive. It’s not quite broadcast quality but the footage from the iPhone camera is still pretty impressive. Once it was edited together with an original song from Wild, one of the nursery team members, we were fairly pleased with the end result.
Into The Woods is based in Highgate Wood and Queens Wood in North London and their new Hampstead nursery opens after Easter.
