Video to commemorate the opening of the brand new, state of the art hospital in Kent, built on the old site of the old facility.

We had two camera crews on this event, interviewing the 6 speakers including guest speaker Dr Hilary Jones, radio mic’ing them all and also sending the audio to our AV equipment and speakers, needing both a sound recordist and a sound engineer on the occasion.

We also featured various demonstration stands on the day, shot drone footage and steadicam of the hopsital’s facilites on separate occasions, incorporated archive footage of the construction phase, and photos of the original hospital from the late C19th.

We were fortunate enough to work with Kent County Council again this year on the KUDOS Awards, rewarding innovative use of sport within the community. Thera-Box was this year’s winner:

An innovative and ultimately effective combination of group therapy sessions and box fitness helps motivate and focus young minds with learning disabilities.

We built upon the successful structure we created last year, again utilising the stabilised gimbal, but this year adding some high speed photography (at 125fps) which really suited this year’s activities.

Originally set up to help provide not only a sporting outlet, but a social network for foreign students with English as a second language, the Riverside FC squad now boasts around 10 nationalities and plays in the local leagues.

.. and we were lucky enough to film their first competitive match.

Sevenoaks District Council offers a range of sporting taster courses, but this particular project was particularly successful due to its inclusivity and the take-up rate after the 6 week course was over.

Run in conjunction with the North Downs Archery Club, this social activity is open to all ages and abilities, both genders, and can cater for those with disabilities.

This project relied heavily on pulling off two fairly intricate and skilled tasks:

  • A significant degree of animation was used throughout, some overlaying vision shot on site.¬†Our graphic designer, Ben, even created a whole batch of logos for this to demonstrate the different fields this worldwide supplier operates within.
  • A temporary studio set was created on site to shoot the machines, which were too large and too many to transport. This meant a day of prep before hand erecting the 7m wide backdrop, and lighting it.

To pull it off we needed a few site visits before the actual day to make sure we shot everything we needed to, as there were not going to be any re-shoots, and that we would be able to achieve it all in a day. Which we did, also using sliders, a jib and time-lapse photography.
