Over the years Spike has focussed on diversification not just across Geographical locations but also across whole industry sectors. One of the most exciting projects this year was filming with new Spike clients and aviation giants, Meggitt Aircraft Braking Systems (MABS). The MABS communication team contacted us with a view to updating their corporate film which they use on a regular basis to show prospective and existing clients the ‘scale and capability’ of the Meggitt UK operations.

A large portion of Meggitt clients are military fast jets and helicopters used by the world’s largest air forces. As many of the processes and testing facilities are top secret we had an MOD representative on hand to make sure that any classified equipment and technical specifications we filmed could not be identified.

Spike sent a crew to film on location in the UK and we spent a busy few days filming with our ‘top spec’ cameras as well as with a GoPro and time-lapse cameras to cover every angle. The editing was done back at our production facility in Jersey using a combination of spectacular stock aircraft footage sourced by Spike and the factory footage we shot. One of Meggitt’s longstanding clients is the BAE Systems Hawk T1 flown by Red Arrows and it was great to edit ‘onboard’ footage of the world’s top air display team into the film!

Spike’s in house graphic artists took on the challenge of producing a suite of graphics – both 2D and 3D – that were on brand but also with a tech look similar to the Heads Up Display (HUD) in a pilot’s helmet.
