Tom Middleton and Miche Parkinson, who run SMN Film, were commissioned by Destination Ludlow Partnership to create the promotional video.

“Ludlow is such a picturesque town and we really want to showcase its beauty and inspire people to come and visit this summer,” Tom said.

“It’s a real honour to have been asked to produce this film and we are so excited by the creative challenge of finding new ways to film the town from the ground and from the sky.”

The married couple took advantage of the weather to use cinema standard drone technology to record never seen before angle of Ludlow in the spring mist.

Miche said: “Its a great opportunity to get involved with the local businesses in Ludlow and this presents a way to unite the town as a whole."

Destination Ludlow Partnership is a group that represent key visitor attractions and events in the town.

Its aim is to improve and sustain an attractive offer to visitors and further Ludlow’s popularity as a tourist destination.

Tish Dockerty, chairman of Destination Ludlow Partnership and member of Ludlow Chamber of Commerce added: "This is a great opportunity to work with two very talented people who happen to live and work near Ludlow and feel as we do, passionately about Ludlow and its quest to attract visitors to the town and area."

The project will continue until early summer when the finished film will be released on the Ludlow Guide website and across social media.
