We have recently enjoyed working on a new series of videos profiling the services Lightning Enterprises offers here in the Channel Islands. Lightning Enterprises really are the go to company for all of your lightning protection needs. Their work currently sees protection offered in the Channel Islands and now they are looking to widen the net by offering their services on the UK mainland. As a result they have launched a new website and wanted to supplement it with a short promotional video and a more in-depth video for use on their website explaining what services they offer.

The first video in the series features work that was completed on St. John’s church. Tim, their Director, insisted we did the interview on the roof, so we obliged, a little reluctantly, not because of the heights we would be reaching but the many ladders we had to scale with our camera gear. But we do like a challenge, so we accepted and shot the interview on the lead roof.

After closer examination of the new lightning protection system installed on one of the spires, we returned to ground level where further establishing shots were obtained. An additional site visit was also arranged to hear from a local architect who was commissioned to oversee all of the renovation works to the church until completion. This site is one of many we plan to visit in the Channel Islands later this year, where we can build upon the footage already obtained from the church.

You can view our short promotional video below. Check out their website for a full overview of the services they have to offer.
