We sat with a brewing industry client to work through an edit of a process explainer video that had been shot in Japan. The rushes had been provided to the client and we compressed some 70 minutes of footage into a 20 minute edit.

A graphics-based video was the best solution to explain the benefits of a new financial initiative. The whole project was turned around within 10 days of the request.
We worked through a PR agency to produce a series of new build show home promotional videos – property tours. These simple videos can often be put together at short notice and with only a day’s manpower.
The shoot was a 2 location affair, completed in a morning, with script and outline storyboard provided. To achieve a nice look the DSLR camera was the ideal choice.
We are working with this client on a series of sales-focussed demos of separate modules of their data visualisation and mapping software tools.
Having worked with Nicky to produce a short crowdfunder video, we produced a more promotional version, with the book having been successfully published. A quirky piece!
This project was 4 short videos for usage on a trade fair stand. These were to promote a new energy monitor for a leading supplier. The catch was that the videos were going to be played on TVs hung vertically, so they needed to be shot in portrait mode.
This product teaser video for the launch of a new screwdriver had the brief that the product should never be clearly seen. I had the vision of a partially lit object on a plinth, with “lightning” going on around it.
Getting 1 dog to sit and stay? Probably easy. Getting 4 to sit and stay for 30 seconds simultaneously? While their owners walk out of shot? It took us minutes, rather than hours. Good dog!
Shooting a promo for a horsebox manufacturer, the endless static interior and exteriors were in need of a lift. Solution: sucker a GoPro to the boot of the car and lead the van down a country lane. Results? 56,000 video views and £50k in new business very quickly.
External shots for a venue tour looked great on a cold winters day at 9am. One shot had the tripod and slider – and me – on top of a icy raised wooden platform beside the pond. Did someone say “Risk Assessment”?
At less than 24 hours notice we were asked to put together a software demo video with an urgent deadline attached. The following day we worked onsite at the client’s Canary Wharf premises, recording pieces to camera, voiceovers and screen-captured web demos.
This is a series of educational coaching videos filmed in a ‘studio’ setting and supplemented by graphics. Long scripts needed autocue, and the edit points planned in advance.
A behind-the-scenes shoot for a Rugby Club calendar in 2015. Shooting in a badly lit shower room is one thing. Warm water misting up the lens after 15 seconds is even trickier. Luckily the finished edit was designed to have a shot change every 1-2 seconds.
In autumn 2014 we worked with Vivace Chorus, producing promotional videos for their choir performances, starting with this concert promo video.
Flashmob! It’s all in the planning, with 2 remote cameras, the client posing as a bystander to record on their phone, and me rushing around trying to get as many different and relevant angles as possible in 2 minutes. That’s me you can see crouched on the floor in the centre of the shot.
We covered a 1 man show performed by actor Matthew Jure. The intimate play was covered by 3 cameras, and the highlights of the show were compiled on a Theatre Show Promo DVD which was targeted at potential investors, directors and producers.
This very collaborative project entailed working with the client at their home, shooting, editing and trialling options for graphics. Any relationship where the client is making you lunch has to be going well!
