The camera operators of Las Hormigas Negras filmed the opening of the Maspalomas Ethnographic Museum

The Maspalomas Ethnographic Museum, housed in the lighthouse on the beach, was officially opened in 2018. A highly emotional ceremony that paid tribute to the culture and history of the south of Gran Canaria. The video was produced by audio-visual production company, Las Hormigas Negras.

As Antonio Morales, President of the Cabildo of Gran Canaria, said in his opening speech “today, we are opening the most popular lighthouse to be found anywhere in the Canary Islands. It is about to celebrate its 130th anniversary; it is the grandfather of our coasts. We want it to symbolise the link between our rich history and the promising future that Gran Canaria faces, if we all sail in the same boat in conserving the treasures that we enjoy”.

In this emotional spirit and as a tribute to the history and culture of Gran Canaria, the Las Hormigas Negras camera operators filmed the best moments of this ceremony with great technical equipment and our drone. A careful job of editing and content was also done.

Artists Pedro Manuel Afonso, Judith Pessoa, Germán López and musicians from the Gran Canaria Philharmonic Orchestra performed songs like “Maspalomas y tú” and “Sombras del Nublo” during the ceremony. The lighthouse will house a set of museum displays and exhibitions that will reflect Canary Island traditions. There was also a video-mapping show that highlighted the architecture of the Maspalomas Lighthouse.

Back at the production company, our team of camera operators and editors did a careful job of producing, managing and filming the video, using the best possible technical equipment and our drone to create a video capable of transmitting the importance of this event for the men and women of Gran Canaria. That is why Las Hormigas Negras is one of the leading audio-visual producers in the Canary Islands in the field of corporate videos.
