The (cable) Lengths We Go To For The Perfect Shot

As you may have seen from our homepage, video production is our vocation. We create a range of corporate videos, TV commercials, and animated videos because it’s what we love to do. We are storytellers- and this blog will give you a bit of an insight into the creative process while making a recent recruitment video for Eon energy.

Video Production – 24/7

Our job isn’t a 9-5. Whether on a shoot that lasts for days or staying up until all hours creating a perfect story for a film, we live and breathe video production. Our Founder and Director, Geoff Brooks recalls causing havoc at his parent’s house for the sake of a perfect shot.

Behind the Scenes

“I had an idea of exactly how I envisaged the plug pulling shot to play out, but because the objects needed to have a life of their own (see the finished commercial here) I was wondering about how we could create the shot without any human involvement.

My Dad said he had a suitable extension cable to do some tests on and before we knew it we were hammering nails into the living room floor! As I’m sure you can imagine my Mum wasn’t impressed!

Fortunately, as my Dad pointed out, they were ripping up all the carpets later in the month and getting wooden floors fitted. And there was me thinking my Dad was just like me (or vice-versa) and would literally do absolutely anything for the perfect shot.”

TV Commercial – Before and After

So here is proof of our commitment to video production. See the video below of the destruction caused to the floor (actually, it was quite a neat job!) compared to how the final advert looked.

 

See our full showreel here and get in touch if you’d like to discuss your corporate video needs. We’ll destroy our own homes to make sure the final shoot runs as smoothly as possible!
