Drone video offers unique bird’s-eye view of leading international school in Tokyo

In late 2015, St. Mary’s International School in Tokyo completed their ambitious campus redevelopment program.

Their 9-acre (36,000 m2) site now features a substantial school building, a multipurpose gym/art/music building, a cafeteria/pool building, a large soccer field, a number of tennis and outdoor basketball courts.

Their only problem now was, “How do we show off these amazing new facilities?”

They came to Paradigm to see how we could help and, instinctively, we told them to take to the skies!

They liked our idea and we began to plan a drone shoot. Using this incredible aerial footage along with conventional video of a normal day at the school we edited it into a final five minute film.

This now takes center stage on their website, and we have heard from students, parents and staff, that they love it!
