Ride Across Britain

A cycling event with heart. Almost 1000 people with varying levels of experience cycle nearly 1000 miles to from Lands End in the southwest of England, to John O’ Groats in the northeast of Scotland. The event is a huge undertaking for many of its participants, with many raising money for charity.

The event is operated by Threshold Sports and the main sponsor is Deloitte. It celebrated it’s 10th year in 2019. Islander worked with our good friends at 8 Seconds Media to film and create an on-event edit that captured the atmosphere of the journey and the spirit of the riders.

〝Islander delivered two videos for our client Sligo Tourism. From the original brief response, through creative storyboarding, resourcing and scheduling the shoot, Oliver over-delivered professionally and creatively at every stage.

The turnaround time to final delivery was always super quick and delivered before deadlines. Ultimately it was the quality of the final videos that speak for themselves, literally. We could not have hoped for videos as cinematically beautiful, creative, magical or absolutely nailing our brief requirements. Oliver is a consummate professional and has both the creative and technical talents to deliver beautiful videos but more importantly the most professional work ethic. We look forward to working with Islander many more times.〞
