Haynes - Tiff Needell Launch

A punchy, tongue in cheek sales and promotional video for Tiff Needells autobiography "Tiff Gear" (Haynes publishers). We filmed with Tiff Needell at Thruxton race course which was a great experience - 140mph in a BMW M3 was not something to forget. The film was created through Bristol based Spirit PR and designed for use on digital signage at POP (Point of Purchase) within book stores. A second version was also cut to be used on Amazon next to the listings of the books and a longer version is now hosted on the Haynes website. Videos in the retail environment are becoming increasingly common and making messages stand out from the crown is more important than ever. Working with a presenter like Tiff gave us a great opportunity to allow his personality to come across in the film and engage with potential readers. Point of sale / point of purchase videos such as this can be shown on any type of instore screens and multimedia systems from small LCD's to large digital displays.

Who's Lenny - See No Evil

'Who's Lenny?' is a documentary short looking at the Nelson Street art project 'See No Evil' and exploring street arts global explosion. The event saw 72 artists converge on Bristol to transform the drab city centre street into an internationally recognised outdoor art installation. The film, created for Bristol City Council, features interviews with the artists, organisers and members of the council to look at how the project came about. It also examines Bristol's wider involvement in the street art movement. We used a number of filming techniques including time lapse sequences, cable dollys and pole cams with the film was primarily shot on Canon 5D's. It was a fantastic project to be involved in and our thanks go out to everybody that made it possible, we truly hope you enjoy the film.

Barclaycard has launched PayWag, the first contactless payment device for dogs. Really? We were approached by Barclaycard's digital agency Dare to create an April Fools' spoof video about #PayWag, an NFC chip embedded in a collar that enables dogs to make purchases. This viral video campaign was an effective approach. By early on April 1st, the video had quickly gained over 20,000 views. The results were impressive on social media too. The video racked up 717 'Likes' on the Barclaycard Facebook page every hour on the first day of release, quickly becoming the most popular 'Dog Video' on this social channel.

Astrium Services briefed us to reposition their brand. We created and managed a video marketing campaign that used an emotionally engaging film to cut through in a technology driven market place. We also helped them with a digital PR campaign conveying the brand and its core services to a specialist audience. Astrium Services has a wide ranging portfolio based on very high resolution satellite imagery. The marketplace is filled with imagery of satellites, technical specifications and detailed products, and our concept moved this on to find an emotional connection, which would resonate with the audience. Whilst representing satellite data visually was important, we felt that this brand needed to reposition itself by telling another story. To do this we combined emotive imagery with powerful on screen text and used specially composed music to bring it all together.
