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.
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.
