We’re in Dover this week filming our tribute to Vera Lynn to help celebrate her 100th birthday!

There’ll be bluebirds over the White CLiffs of Dover; the forces sweetheart first sang about these iconic cliffs in 1942 as an anthem of hope for the nation in the heart of a global conflict, the song is arguably the defining tune of the era and is still widely recognised today.

We’re planning on projecting one of her original performances on to the cliffs themselves, with the help of 6 super powered projectors and a crack team of projectionists. We’re learning about the history of the woman herself, finding out about the extraordinary life she lead during and after the war; and the amount of work she put in for the troops. Just as with the woman who made the song famous, there’s more to the piece than meets the eye.

The shoot was a first for our newest member of the team, Lewis Garrard, our production runner. He’s working on the boom for this shoot, and assisting our brilliant camera team.
