It’s a wrap! December saw probably our last video project of the year, and we really did save the best until last

We have just finished filming in downtown Dubai this week, and the city some call the ‘playground of the Middle East’ did not fail to deliver. Everywhere you look is something truly extraordinary!

Extraordinary does not always mean something great or amazing, but whether breathtakingly super-sized, gaudy, indulgent, over-the-top or just a bid mad, it’s all pretty extraordinary nonetheless – almost an alternate reality even – and as such it’s a very special place for those of us in visual media.

Spending fourteen hours in the air (and four hours in Customs!) did not dampen our spirits too much, because there were so many other positive aspects to focus on and enjoy. Our lovely client looked after us in every way, meaning we still had a little time here and there to dash around the city’s main iconic sights and enjoy a couple of memorable meals.

Everyone we met out and about was friendly and accommodating, and I could have easily stayed another week! So here’s to ending the year on a high note, and hoping this won’t be our last working visit to Dubai…
