We have been working over an extended period to help promote the John C Taylor clock & watch collection. This involves sifting through a huge archive of video content, editing & uploading.

We attended the 2021 Health & Safety Conference at the NEC to record a series of talks and panel events on behalf of Driving for Better Business.
We were pleased to again work, through PR agency Famous Publicity, with Dr John C Taylor to promote the unveiling of his latest horological masterpiece.
As part of a business development strategy, our client has begun a video marketing program to showcase their event catering services.
The challenge of an onsite same-day edit was part of the brief for this international conference shoot at the Emirates Stadium. The client was delighted with the finished video.
We covered this evening event, producing different videos for some of the suppliers. We also took photographs for use by 3 of the parties. It was therefore quite an intense evening of work made worthwhile for the multiple outputs.
We had a good time shooting this event, working hard but with lots of creative freedom to make a conference visually interesting. There was a pair of GoPros and a pair of DSLRs, a camera slider, timelapses and a mini-jib. It’s great having the opportunity to play around with shots.
In 2020 we are continuing to cover AIM’s industry events – a partnership which is now in its 12th year. We offer a dependable service, familiar with the format of the events and the need for prompt turnaround of the videos.
Professional video production leads to happy clients, so after great success producing a promotional video in 2012 at this NEC event, we covered the show again in 2013.
We worked on event and edit-only projects to showcase the work of an inventor and horologist. This has also involved YouTube optimisation. One of these projects was the launch of one of the inventor’s products at Design Shanghai.
Corporate breakfast event retrospective – production of an event video incorporating presentation content. An early start to be at the Ivy in London for 0800.
We were delighted to cover the 5th annual Black & Red Ball for the Lauren Currie Twilight Foundation in Glasgow, and put together a video of the event. Luckily we happened to be in the Glasgow area that very week anyway!
We covered a book launch event for Circle Podiatry, who are spearheading a global awareness campaign. The output was a video of the evening which included lots of supportive vox-pops from attendees.
Visiting 18 separate locations for 18 separate interviews on a single day? Easy, with good preparation and a very mobile setup. The pieces were cut together into Award Nominee films to be shown on the Awards Night (a bit like the Oscars!).
The launch of a bid for an F1 circuit on Tenerife put ex-driver Mark Blundell in front of the camera. Later in the event I got to film my first interview with a President. We also did some housekeeping and optimisation work on the client’s YouTube channel.
Attending this trade fair, we put together a video of the event and also shot subject-specific interviews with some speakers and delegates for the client to use on Vimeo.
We used the Canon 5D to shoot this sponsors event video. Feedback was “It never ceases to amaze me how you produce this work from seeming mundane and perfectly ordinary material. Once again you have captured the mood of another fantastically successful afternoon. Thank you!”
This is a 1-man 2-camera shoot with a twist – as this is a PR-focussed event, the video needs to be turned round very quickly. As such, we edit onsite immediately to produce a brief 30-second clip that can be sent to the media. This is achieved within 1 hour of the end of the shoot.
Filming all the elements of a corporate team building weekend included flying in a helicopter for a “treasure hunt” from the New Forest to the coast and Cowes. I got the front seat so the team could sit together – all I had to do was turn the camera backwards, reverse the viewing monitor and film over my shoulder i.e. I am actually facing in the opposite direction to this shot.
Proof that with a one-man team, you can cover all of a conference’s content, shoot a retrospective of the event, and get interviews with key parties. Why hire a larger and more expensive crew?
For the third year running in 2013 we attended the Guildford Beer Festival to put together a snapshot of the event. Very tempting to mix business with pleasure!
Following an ongoing relationship with The Blue Ballroom through some of their other events, we were pleased to cover the launch event for a new venture “thefuturestory”, held at RADA in London. We were subsequently asked to cover 4 further events.
