Mike Coombes from the Two Bridges Hotel contacted me several weeks ago to see if they could use Meryl for a promotional video in return for working together offering classic car hire to visitors to Dartmoor. I thought this was a great idea, the Two Bridges is a beautiful Hotel right in the heart of Dartmoor and what better way to enjoy the Moors and South Devon than in a classic or modern open top car. We had to wait a few weeks for the weather to be kind but last week promised some real Devon sunshine so the filming was set up for Thursday afternoon. The filming was being done by Wildhorse Films and covered a number of scenarios with the guests arriving, having lunch, dinner etc. We did a number of sequences filming Meryl driving across the Moor and the arriving at the Hotel over the famous two bridges. The sun shone and Meryl really looked the part. On the second day the film crew used a drone to film Meryl from the air, This was fascinating, but it also attracted a crowd which we tried to disperse or shoot around. I hope the results are as good as it all looked from where I was standing. I am really looking forward to working with Mike at Two Bridges offering Self Drive Classic Cars to the Hotel guests as part of the excellent facilities available at the hotel - including the best cream tea in Devon!
