Former Skippers pupil creates drone video of school grounds

Posted: 13th June 2017

Former pupil Toby Plummer recently returned to Skippers to capture video footage of the school grounds using a drone.

You can watch Toby’s video below:

Toby spent a happy five years at Skippers Hill, from 1998 to 2003. He then went to Cranbrook School and to Ampleforth for sixth form. Being dyslexic, Toby never found academic work particularly easy but chose to follow his passion for filmmaking, which he had from an early age and now runs his own company in the United Arab Emirates.

A Graduate of Falmouth University, with a BA Film degree focusing on documentary filmmaking, Toby took up an internship with a media company in Dubai, which soon became a permanent position. His passion for filmmaking combined with a creative flair meant that he was quick to learn and develop his own style. Having built up contacts in the United Arab Emirates, Toby decided to become a freelance cinematographer. Although mainly based in Dubai, his work has taken him to countries all over the world, working on documentaries, commercials and fashion shoots.  In 2015 Toby set up his own company Capture DXB
