The Survive! video was developed as a training tool to encourage fishermen to survive at sea if they should have to abandon their vessel. The programme uses a mixture of drama (shot on a real trawler in the English Channel with real fishermen in acting roles), training footage and a location-based presenter (Sarah Beeny from Channel 4’s ‘Property Ladder’) to thoroughly yet entertainingly outline all areas of sea survival. #rnli #videoproduction #trainingvideo

They asked us to create sales promos for use in different sectors which would highlight the proficiency of their service, the quality of the vans and packing materials and portray them the tight, efficient service they offer. Shooting in Yorkshire, London and Spain and utilising minicam, tracks and timelapse footage we created a slick, multiscreen promo. The promos are now used on their website, at trade shows and on sales DVDs.
Featuring sensitive interviews with patients, family and staff the film is used online and elsewhere to spread the word and ask for help. “This sort of film is so powerful.

We decided that there was no better way to convince school leaver’s of the benefits of college life than to show their immediate peers enjoying just that. Interviews were carried out in all the major college departments, contemporary music selected, cool graphics created for the edit and what do you know? College admissions soared. The video was so successful, the college commissioned us to remake it a couple of years later.

The brief was to encapsulate on film the thoughts of ordinary male citizens of Hull on the underlying reasons for the city having the worst domestic violence record in the UK.The sensitive nature of the subject matter necessitated a suitably austere location, shooting style and edit. We conducted all of the interviews in strict confidence and elicited some remarkably candid and emotional insights in the psyche of Hull man. When the finished film was shown at the initiative’s launch event.
Shot over the course of 9 months (to encapsulate the changing seasons) this promo is used both in the Wensleydale visitors centre at the creamery in Hawes, at international food festivals and by the firm’s marketing staff.The sedate pace of Dales life is reflected in the relaxed voice-over (by TV and movie star Richard Ridings), the selection of long scenic shots and use of pastoral and brass band music.
