Behind the scenes – ‘Introducing Lolly’ animation

We recently produced a stop frame animation for Colebrook Bosson Saunders. The idea was to have a creative 1 minute video to get across the key USP’s of the product in different environments. Deciding on a stop frame format we tested different creative solutions to shoot the animation in the small window we had. You can see the process below.

And the final video below…..

 

Producing ‘Ollin’ for Colebrook Bosson Saunders

We produced a product video for Colebrook Bosson Saunders at the beginning of the year. Alot of testing was involved to devise ways to get effective product shots without the use of CGI. We used green screen, with cameras mounted onto the product to give a unique view of the the product and to mirror its fluid movement. We then built a studio office setup to see the product being used in a real life setting with actors, using remote camera sliders and a jib to again achieve fluid shots.

You can see a few behind the scenes clips below.

Godsticks Music Video

Worked with the South Wales rock band Godsticks to produce a music video for there single ‘Hard to face’. The band had a idea they came to the table with, so the process was to get that into an original format and try to keep it within budget. I did one shoot with the band in a nightclub in Bristol, and then a studio shoot and a location shoot both in Brighton. Actor/handyman Simon Brice helped to get the door up on Shoreham beach, before we rushed to get the scene done before the oncoming tide came in and consumed it. Ended up looking really surreal and plenty of beach walkers took an interest and selfies. Shot the water footage using a GH4 and housing with a Olympus 25mm 1.8 which gave a  shallow look.

Started off with composing a theme tune, building plenty of weird and wonderful sound fx into a glitchy based piece. The main body took mainly took a ambient based approach, finding subtle sounds and drones.
