Working with the National Horseracing College
The National Horseracing College, based in Doncaster, is one of only two specialist racing colleges in the country and trains hundreds of students each year for a career in the horseracing industry.
We first began working with them in 2015, when they approached us to create a Sky TV commercial
for them. So when they wanted to create 360 virtual reality videos to show potential students what working in the racing industry is like, they saw Lucas Media as the natural choice and chose us as their preferred video partner once again.
The videos would be used in a virtual tour inside an Oculus VR headset at trade shows and educational/apprenticeship events to give users a fully immersive taste of various aspects of the horseracing industry, including riding on the College gallops, and watching a race at Doncaster Racecourse.
We used a Kandao Obsidian specialist 360 camera to shoot the video in 8K resolution this enabled us to also capture 360 panoramic images. Our crew, along with members of the NHC marketing team, filmed at various locations around the UK, including the College, Doncaster Racecourse and Goffs UK Bloodstock Sales, and at top horse trainer Jonjo O’Neill’s Cheltenham stables.
