Client requirements

Samuel Whitbread is a thriving school in Bedfordshire where extra-curricular activities are valued as well as the curriculum. The brief was to create a series of five very short films showing real students engaged in two contrasting competencies which would be compelling to watch. The school contacted us ahead of their sixth form open evening. We turned the videos around quickly so they could be used to create interest in the event. We were delighted that the videos were shared more than 20 thousand times on FaceBook and a further 20 thousand times on Twitter. We decided to use visually matching shots to create interest and to achieve this used a drone for the netball shot and a 4K camera throughout to give excellent quality and good slow motion.

Working with Cathy and her team was an absolute delight. They listened to what we wanted and suggested creative and innovative solutions for how we could get our message across through a series of short videos on Twitter and Facebook, rather than the traditional ten minute video on the website. The videos proved an enormous success and reached our target audience with some videos taking on a life of their own and being retweeted thousands of times. I would definitely use them again and recommend them to other education institutions
