Skylark has just provided aerial footage for France 2.

Filmed on 15th August then aired during the same week on France 2. This documentary is about the Lake District and features more drone footage than land based camera. Skylark also features in the credits.

A notable factor about this filming was Skylark's ability to provide full assistance with locations, interviewees and access to Windermere Lakes Cruises for filming at short notice.

"Simon, a huge thank you once again for the fabulous Summer drone shots of my holiday cottages here at Howe Foot.

The quality of the photos is outstanding and the angles superb at which you have taken the shots. I really couldn't

be more delighted with them and they show Howe Foot off  to its full potential. You are so accommodating with your

customers requests too and act in such a professional but friendly manner, making your customer feel so at ease and

confident from the start. I really look forward to the video of the properties and grounds which we have discussed...

so exciting, thank you so much".
