Spiral Cellars
Case Study

Dragonfly were commissioned by the UK’s leading wine room supplier, Spiral Cellars, to produce a promotional video for their bespoke walk-in wine rooms and cellars.

The Work

Visual signets like the slow moving camera zooming in on an opening door add to the feeling of welcoming in the video, in an effort to position Spiral Cellars as a unique and desirable addition to a home.

Dragonfly's work with Spiral Cellars

Capturing great footage of something as elegant as a wine cellar should be easy, right?
Well, the production of this promotional video was actually a little trickier than one might expect. Whilst these flash wine cellars might sound like they lend themselves to James Bond-worthy cinematic video, it’s incredibly challenging to make dynamic, exciting content when the subject matter is, by its very nature, static.
Our team worked hard to create motion whilst filming – we brought in models to interact with the locations, had steady cams panning the cellars and even used a camera crane. An amusing memory from one of the shoot days involved one of our cameramen lying on the floor to create the illusion of a self-opening slow motion door.
The atmosphere of the entire video had to feel high-end and sophisticated – this was a premium product, after all. We sourced specialist location lighting to create depth in the cellars, adding in touches of haze to compliment the overall mood.
