The Performance Series – Race #3 Gardens by the Bay Coverage

On 7 August 2016, The Performance Series held their 3rd race at Gardens by the Bay East. Participants of all categories: 10km, 5km and 2.5km geared themselves up, hoping to enjoy the scenic view of Marina Bay Sands, the Singapore Flyer and of course Gardens by the Bay during the run.

It was an early start for our guys yesterday as they woke up at 3.30am to head down to Gardens by the Bay East. When they reached the race village, they started their set up and planning for the aerial, photo and video coverage of the event.


For the 1st 10km Wave 1 Flag-off at 6:30am, our photographer Raymond commented that it was a bit of challenge because pre-dawn shoots had low lightings. Fortunately, he manged to capture some shots using flash. He shot the Start/Finish area and the Race Village using Nikon D750.

Eugene, our certified drone pilot took care of the aerial videography and photography. He started gathering aerial shots from 6.30am onwards. Using DJI Inspire 1, he took aerial shots for the river view of Gardens by the Bay.

For our two videographers, Darren and Ando held a SonyA6300 video camera to shoot the runners.

Darren, was stationed at the water point to capture video of runners taking a rest and replenishing with liquids like sports drink Lucozade and PH Balancer water.

Besides the normal video coverage, Ando, who used to be a professional footballer in his country, did the honour to jog/walk along with the participants using the DJI Osmo. He covered about 10km of the entire Gardens by the Bay race route.


A fun fact from The Performance Series run which one of our staff, Ashley who participated in the 5km race shared was her observation during the run. She mentioned, “In the midst of running, I saw a number of people trying to catch Pokemon, even the event race volunteers had to encourage people to continue running instead of catching Pokemon”.

We are certainly not surprised by this fact, since Pokémon GO launched on August 6, the day before the race. We heard from one of the runners that she caught “Golbat” with 15 Pokemon balls at Gardens by the Bay.

P/S: You can consider to use the Osmo since it is hand-phone linked while running outdoors. You can kill two birds with one stone by keeping fit and also catching some Pokemons along the way.

To end off, we had a great time doing this photography and videography event coverage for this wonderful running event, The Performance Series.

Before the rest of the official photos and video is out, here are some BTS photos!
