GTC Day in the Country

Following the success of previous years, the GTC returned to A Day in the Country, near Banbury. GTC members enjoyed a day of fun activities, the chance to meet up with fellow members, to take part in the AGM and to celebrate last year's great camerawork at the presentation with the GTC Awards 2017.

The 2017 activities were:

Hovercraft driving (sponsored by Panasonic UK)

An unusual and fun test of coordination skills with an element of competition to add some spice!

4 x 4 Driving

Drivers negotiated a specially designed jungle track through woods with deep water splashes and steep hills.

Dog Agility & Ferret Racing

Head-to-head agility relay race with dogs and ferrets  over obstacle course.


Try your hand at hitting static and moving targets in the beautiful 250-acre estate, with traditional bows and arrows.

Kit demos

New kit was available for attendees to view and try. This included the opportunity to have a go at operating a gimbal camera on a drone courtesy of Aerial Vue, a demonstration of 360°, provided by VE Group, and a chance to try out the ARRI Trinity.

Video highlights

During the day GTC members, with the help of GTC and Award sponsors supporters recirded the activities using a selection of the latest kit.
