This is a behind the scenes shot of one of the retailers we helped highlight for @thebrentfordproject

It was a lot of fun deciding how we wanted to set up this interview shot as we wanted to show the incredible space we was in to the best of our abilities and we are very happy with the end result 😁🚗

STOLEN ☹️ on 27th March 2023 after stopping briefly for some food, a group of 4 balaclava clad thieves smashed the back window of my car, pulled out 2 bags, one containing approximately £15k of camera equipment and the other, my MacBook Pro. Today, I got my MacBook Pro back, hooray!
 
Anyone who’s had their possessions stolen will know the sinking feeling, the violation of your space, the financial loss, the confidence hit and the continuous “what ifs” in the aftermath. Although I got my MacBook back, the camera equipment is long gone – I even saw the scumbags distributing the equipment on CCTV to multiple different cars, pulling up and quickly leaving, clearly an organised gang.  The one silver lining to this story is that my MacBook continued to ping its location for 2 days after it was stolen. I was able to tell the police exactly where it ended up with very accurate timings (a storage facility), CCTV was checked, warrants were obtained and a storage unit containing over £100k of stolen items was uncovered. It gives us great comfort in knowing that although our camera equipment wasn’t amongst those items, many people will be getting their possessions back. We view this as a worthy investment at least.
 
So, what have I learnt and what’s the point of this post:
 
Don’t put things on view (even behind tinted glass) on the backseats of cars – it’s not insured there (a hard lesson learnt). It’s also unlikely to be insured even in the boot of the car if it’s not covered by a parcel shelf!
 
Put AirTags or some kind of tracker with kit. When I saw my car was broken into, I thought everything was long gone, but the ‘Find My’ app really came to the rescue.
 
After 10 years of Devoted Films, we’re lucky enough to own a large range of equipment, so there’s been no impact to our projects or shooting schedule. It’s onwards and upwards from here, we’ll put this behind us and continue to focus on making the best films we can for our brilliant clients ☺️🎥🎬.
 
Thank you, @metpolice_uk for your hard work, it’s been greatly appreciated. #videoproduction #kit #film #sony #lesson #insurance
