Working for Immediate Media we were part of the filming crew and editing team on a series of interviews done throughout the day at the festival. Including interviews with Tom Hiddleston, Charlie Brooker, Steven Moffat and lots more.
We created this announement video for David Game College. Filmed on Canon C300, Canon 5D mk3, glidetrack.
On the 31st of May 2017, David Game College is moving to 31 Jewry Street, EC3, in the City of London. The new landlord is Sir John Cass, one of the world’s oldest and most respected educational foundations, who also reside within the building. The new location is 60,000 sq. ft. and is currently undergoing renovation to ensure that the premises can provide students with superior facilities and additional space. The Jewry Street location is part of the College’s commitment to a multi-million pound development plan that will help provide stability and an improved educational experience for all students over the next decade and beyond.
Recently we worked with Dynatrace and Video Productions to film and edit two customer and partner testimonial videos.
Customer Feature: The Coop Denmark mobile loyalty program bolstered by Dynatrace AI: Jeppe Lindberg of Coop Denmark describes how Coop have digitally transformed their membership program to make life simpler for their customers. Supporting their mobile loyalty card service made up of cloud, mobile, hybrid, mainframe and several other services make it complex to manage. Using Dynatrace AI, Coop takes advantage of proactive problem resolution instead of reacting to hundreds of alerts. The result is a happy, differentiated customer experience and a highly positive impact on the business.
Partner Feature: HCL and Dynatrace: Kalyan Kumar, CTO at HCL talks about why they chose to partner with Dynatrace and how Dynatrace plays a critical role in their ability to provide a full stack application monitoring solution for their customers.
We recently made this film for the Nightingale Project featuring the work of illustrator Jane Ray.
More information about the Nightingale Project:
The Nightingale Project brightens up the environment in mental health services through art and music. We see it as vital to bring life and colour into a hospital or clinic setting to provide a conducive setting for medical and therapeutic work. To receive a patient in a hospital environment which is pleasant, cheerful, and welcoming can be seen as an essential first step in treatment, a fundamental contribution to the process of recovery.
We are a charitable project that works with CNWL NHS Foundation Trust, a large mental health trust with many sites in the London area, to make the treatment environment more human and more uplifting for both inpatients and outpatients. We do this through putting on temporary exhibitions of high-quality art in waiting rooms, commissioning artists to produce beautiful works of art for permanent display in the wards, and through bringing musicians into hospitals to play live for the patients. The Project began at the South Kensington and Chelsea Mental Health Centre in 1998, and has since spread to numerous other sites.
The Nightingale Project Fund is Charity no 1082989.
Painter Profiles is a documentary series examining English artists. The original short films will take the viewer into the painters practice, capturing them at work and trying to understand how they see the world. Over the last few months we have worked on these 3 films with Director Orlando Gili.
Keith Grant is a landscape painter who has traveled extensively, and has confronted the elements in order to produce extraordinary, resonant images of nature, especially in the north. In recent years he has preferred to recollect his experiences in the tranquility of his studio in Norway. This film captures Keith as he explores his surroundings in southern Norway with his sketchpad, before taking them back to his studio to create a large scale painting.
Tim Vyner is a reportage artist who works on location with a pen, a sketchbook and a camera. His images capture the decisive moment in wide angled scenes, typically involving a throng of people at sporting events, whether on the street or in a stadium. In this documentary Tim is filmed whilst working on location, and at the studio, in his home town of Bath.
Jon Wealleans is a figurative painter who originally trained as an architect where he understood the arts of perspective and the study of shadows. Wealleans relished the computer free environment of the time, and today continues to work in a world without technological clutter, but in a house surrounded with a jamboree of carefully curated possessions. His work fuses bright primary colours with high brow and low brow objects, in natural still life scenes found in his 17th century London town house.
We did the Post Production of a new Music Video for Swing Ninja’s track My Belle. Filmed by one of our colleagues Orlando Gili and his crew in December 2015
Swing Ninjas are a 9 piece band – evolving from a paired-down 3 piece busking band, via 2 self-released cover version CD’s (selling literally thousands of albums on the streets), to their current fully-formed incarnation as a New Orleans style big-band signed to independent label Freshly Squeezed Music.
We co-produced and filmed 3 promos with Immediate Media for new Shell Payment App. All filmed on location at a Shell garage in Welling, London. Shot on Canon C300. See all 3 promos below.

Military sounds chatter and static. Crackling voices over the ether. On a wooded road two girls are driving, lost amongst the endless forest, the road finally runs out. Strange noises surround them, the ferns begin to move, something is closing in… They are not alone in these woods.
The most critical part of this shoot was the location. We needed somewhere with an eerie looking road which led into a forest.
The production team and myself decided to recce the Bourne woods area around Frensham Pond. This is quite a renowned spot for film making (Gladiator, Children of Men, The Mummy etc)
We were very fortunate to stumble across the perfect road, and even more fortunate to be given permission to shoot there by the lovely owners Denise & Francis – so thanks again!
We started shooting on the few remaining warm days of the year, in October. We planned for a 2 day shoot, but after the first day we quickly realised that we would end up needing quite a bit more time. The light would drop off quickly at 5.30pm. On the second day we tried to shoot the ending at 5.00pm, the ISO was up to 5000 on the c300 and we could barely see our own feet, so we had to can that idea and re -schedule.
In fact we ended up going back on 4 different occasions for additional pick ups and cutaways – this became challenging as the forest ferns started to shrink back as we moved towards the end of October.
The next problem was the creature itself. We ended up shooting this several times to get the puppet part looking right. Massive thanks are due to Megan Prescott (our lead actress & producer) who stepped in with some great ideas for makeup/effects. She took the creature home and brought him back looking like she had pulled him straight out of the black lagoon. Complete with added drool and a lamb’s tongue.
Initially we wanted to use the puppet for everything (inspired by the 80′s practical horror genre) however our creature just wasn’t lifelike enough for wider shots. This is where the guys a the Northforge effects house came in – we were very fortunate to have them on board. The CG really made the creature come to life.
We’d also like to thank Daniel Pimley for his sound mix and Tristan Noon for the excellent score.
