As a preferred supplier to the University, we recently produced this piece to showcase the professional standard new facilities in the Music Technology department:

 

The film was presented by two of the students as we follow the process of recording and building a music track. It featured a group current undergraduates, and used a sound track produced and recorded in the new facilities  themselves.

We filmed with two cameras, a stabilised gimbal, a slider, slow motion shots to demonstrate the equipment, and split screens in post production. So it got the full treatment.

These two videos provide hip and knee replacement patients with the information and techniques for post operative physiotherapy exercises. Helpful for patients, negating the need for staff to explain in detail every time, and ensuring the right information is always provided and available.

The pieces were filed at the hospital against a white colourama, so staff and equipment did not need to be moved.

We were commissioned to produce 3 videos to generate nominations for this year’s KUDOS Awards by Kent Sport, using last year’s 3 finalists.

Each lasts approximately 30 seconds, and is optimised for Facebook and Twitter, with burnt in subtitles to engage the viewer when appearing mute on their feed.

 

 

The Benenden Hospital in Cranbrook, Kent underwent major redevelopment in 2017 / 2018. This video is a guided tour to show members of the trust their new facilities, for which they have invested.

The film features use of the drone and Ronin stabilised gimbal, and was shot and edited in a brief timeframe.

It was edited with a fairly long duration in respect of the audience: current members who needed to digest the new facilities, rather than selling these to prospective new members.

Brighton Marina, the little and lesser known cousin of Brighton Pier and all things on offer in the city itself, has undertaken a major marketing campaign to raise its profile, with live events, website re-development and a range of videos to represent what is actually on offer down there, a couple of miles walk down the beach from the pier.

This full length version showcases everything on offer at the Marina, using on-screen text to delineate categories such as Sports Equipment Hire, Bars & Restaurants etc.

To help gain maximum exposure and impact across various platforms – both the web and social media – Land Securites (the commissioning body) decided to produce a series of videos (full length, 30 seconds, and 10 seconds) first for Summer, and then following the success of that for Winter, where we re-shot certain portions of the piece as appropriate. The thinking behind this being that 30″ is the currently the most digestible fit for social media, whereas the longer version for applicable to the website. Plans are underway to run the 30 second spot in cinemas in Brighton.

We produced two videos for the hospital, presented by a staff nurse, to help instruct and advise cataracts patients before and after their operations, and saving time for nurses not having to repeat instructions to new patients.

To achieve the studio look, we actually used a grey colourama backdrop, so we were able to shoot the pieces at the hospital itself rather than take the staff over to a studio.

The KUDOS Awards recognise innovation when promoting sport within the community. We produced 3 videos to outline the merits of the 3 organisations shortlisted, which were shown at the Awards Ceremony and on the Kent Sport website. Each consisted of a two day shoot, using the Ronin stabilised gimbal to track the subjects as they moved, interviewing both organisers and participants to see the positive effects from their perspective.

Primal Roots: Organisation in Canterbury to help the ex-homeless and those in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction through physical activity in an outdoor, woodland setting. Primal Root was the overall winner of the Award.

 

Wheel Potential: Cycling charity in Canterbury operating along on the Great Stour Way. Providing access to customised cycles for those with disabilities, otherwise finding it extremely hard to experience time on a bike.

 

Active 50: Program run by the Shepway Sports Trust in Folkestone, providing various outlets for physical activity and social interaction for over the 50’s, especially retirees.

Live Event Coverage of the Kent School Games 2016. The 2 day shoot for this piece involved filming a volunteer training day together with the ‘level 3’ main event, which involved 1500 competitors from around Kent aged 5-14.

The Games are held every 2 years, and this year we were fortunate enough to win the Kent County Council tender to provide coverage, with an angle specifically on the volunteering experience.

We provided SteadiCam (Ronin) camera coverage, a multitude of vox pops on the days, and got the volunteers themselves to provide a video diary from their smart-phones. Officials were mic’d up for their events, some even had a Go Pro camera strapped to their chests, and all in all we hope we’ve managed to produce something a little different, with a quality to represent the key values of the Games – Self Belief, Respect, Teamwork, Honest, Passion and Determination.

 

 

 

Promotional piece we created largely in the edit for this holiday lettings  company. It integrated original shots of their office in Kent, together with client-shot material (at a good standard, including pieces-to-camera) of Barbados, archive material of the island, vision sourced from the Barbados Tourism Board, and locally professionally shot vision of the homes and apartments available. So a real melting pot that shows what can be achieved in the edit (including an opening graphic animation, done by ourselves).

 

Business start-up tips, and the essence of the company history and ethos… all in 60 seconds.

Part of a series of business profiles shorts we did for the online component to the Kentish local business periodical, Space Magazine.

In this piece we interview Paul Clark at his hospitality suite at Brands Hatch, where he’s even seen the likes of Top Gear’s new host Chris Evans amongst others.

The lighting in the interview… all natural, as the viewing suite consists mostly of vast windows.
