Belmond teamed up with the London Philharmonic Orchestra to offer exclusive concerts at breathtaking Belmond destinations worldwide. The second of these was in Taormina, Sicily.
We spent two sun-soaked days filming with the seven LPO musicians, from walking scenes in Taormina town to rehearsals in the incredible surroundings of the two Belmond hotels. We wanted the video to feel fun and light-hearted, but also exude an elegant style that befits both brands.
This was our first project filming with the RED Gemini rigged on our Movi Pro gimbal, and it didn’t disappoint. Teamed with a remote follow focus it was a joy to operate, and combined with some aerial shots from our DJI Inspire 2 we are really pleased with the final result.

Brother Film is a creative production company, founded by brothers.
From making skate films on VHS as kids, Brother has developed into a production company based in Peckham, London. With a small core team and a tight network of world-class directors and crew, we pride ourselves on delivering creative work with good people.
We love seeing a concept through from idea generation to the final file upload, but are equally adept at jumping into a project at any stage.
Peckham is a big part of Brother’s DNA, and we started up a local event series, Peckham Filmmakers, to link up local creatives and hero their work.
Our sister company Brother Music is an award-winning music and sound studio, creating bespoke scores and soundscapes for both Brother’s work and a range of other directors, agencies and production companies.
We’re still enthusiastic skater kids at heart, and want that to bleed through into everything we do.
