Real Olympic Fame

No Longer a Desperate Claim………

Well can you believe it? We waited so long for them but it seems that as soon as the Olympics started that they were all over. Like the rest of the country, here at Halo Towers we have been glued to the TV, Twitter and the Radio, its been fantastic.

We mentioned before that three of the people we have filmed were about to compete, well amazingly 2 of them won gold medals. Carl Hester and Charlotte DuJardin won team gold in the dressage and Charlotte won individual gold. A historic performance for British Dressage that we feel some connection to. Both live and train locally and appeared in our 5 part series, At Home With Carl Hester made for Horse and Country TV last year. Check out our project page here, Dressage.

But there is one other bit of news… our much missed production coordinator and researcher, Emily Doyle was actually in the closing ceremony. A trained dancer and performer she was part of the final dance sequence appearing as one of the Phoenix Ballerinas supporting Darcey Bussell. To say we are proud… and jealous is an understatement. Emily got to perform on the world stage, watch the Olympic flame being extinguished and had a front row seat when The Who brought the house down. Hats Off and Chapeau. Emily is the dancer on the far left above.
