Conference Photography & Video

Conference Photography & Video

It was great to be asked to cover this years ENYGF conference and it was always going to be a hectic schedule. They chose the Victoria Warehouse as the venue for the 2017 conference which is an awesome location. After research they chose us to cover the conference photography & video. The venue has a huge expanse and is often used for large concerts, wedding and other similar events. The ENYGF had asked us to provide photo and video coverage to showcase their conference and promote future events. Considering the size of the venue and also the challenges of extreme low light as well as colour casting this wasn’t such an easy task. The venue is quite notorious for its large capacity but also for its many rooms on different levels and so it was important we had planned to capture everything and really do the event justice by producing a great series of images.

A Visit to the Science Museum

One of the trips organised by the ENYGF was to the Museum of Science & Industry This was such a cool place and allowed all the attendees a little bit of R & R after a pretty hectic schedule. One of Manchesters ‘must see’ places the venue have a number of tours and also host parties where you can explore the surroundings take lots of pictures. As we were covering the conference photography & video aspect it was important we made it to these events. As this was organised on an evening it was a real talking point for the attendees the following day and was definable one of the highlights.

Final delivery and sign off

Over the few days that we filmed at the ENYGF as you can imagine we had a huge archive of images and video. We delivered this by way of the cloud and gave them access to all the footage requested as well as cut this snappy little trailer for them to us to promote future events. With over 1000 images we also made these available across a number of platforms as well as having some for social media during the event itself. The ENYGF were a great team to work with and really put on a spectacular final show which everyone enjoyed.

Airofin Sportswear Brand

Airofin Sportswear Brand

We had such a great time shooting for Airofin, such a great brand and quite a unique clothing line. Whether you’re preparing for a triathlon or an Ironman, you cant help but have noticed that this kit is worn by numerous top athletes. The Airofin Sportswear Brand has a real mark of quality and it was so important for us to re-enforce this quality in the film we put together for them. We had some great locations put together and shot over two days we really wanted the Airofin brand to shine.

Unique Visual Elements

One of the key factors in creating that desire for a product is highlighting certain visual elements. With the Airofin Sportswear Brand we really like the cooler tones used in the design and we emulated this throughout the film. With sportwear especially outdoor sportswear its also important to connect the brand to a suitable environment. With the brands association with triathlon events we opted to showcase these aspects in the video as well as cross training. Fortunately we had several great locations in and around Manchester to choose from so it was just a matter of getting the right weather for fresh but bright look.

Timescale for this production

As with all productions time is of the essence and we shot the two days over the course of three weeks. Our shooting schedule was subject to location, actors availability and weather dependent so we certain elements are beyond control. We did however deliver a short 30 second edit after only one day shooting which the client really loved and it also helped us to agree the look we would go for in the final edit. In conclusion it was a great project to be involved and we would love to continue to work with the sportwear sector so if you have any similar project please get in touch. We at Cedar House Productions would love to hear from you regardless of how big or small your project is, we also have a great deal of experience working with all industry sectors and regularly travel great distances.

Video for Business – Bars@Yours

Bar suppliers Bars@Yours invested in a short video for business to showcase their bar hire service

Great working on the Bars@Yours video for business. Its quite a niche concept and we had come across a company that offered such a cool service. Imagine setting up an event and organising all the elements that make a great party. For example the band, the catering any additional entertainment, the staff and of course the bar. Well Bars@Yours can take care of the bar for you. They offer a great service where they come and set up one of their super cool looking bars. They then staff it with highly experienced bar tenders and stock up on all the cocktails and beer you could possibly want. Its a great option if your stressed about taking care of other things for your event.

We had the privilege of seeing the guys in action at a recent event and subsequently went on to produce this snappy little teaser for them to use as their video for business. I love the way they run their business and they clearly know their job. Head over to their website and check out some of their offers if your considering hiring a bar service.

The evolution of corporate video production

Its interesting how video for business has evolved over the years. As technology has moved on and become readily available there has been a distinct shift in the market. Producing videos like the one we put together for our client is now quite different. The whole corporate video market has become so competitive that customers now demand lower costs and higher productions values. As businesses focused more on marketing through digital media, so did they look for new ways to get more for their money. Thats why we introduced our new pricing policy for small and medium sized businesses. If you simply don’t have the budget of larger corporations. Our methodology also changed and we developed a system that offered fast turnaround times for filming and post production.

Moving in to the future with Video production

Bars@Yours promotional video is a great example of what can be done quickly and for a very low cost when compared to other media production companies. So I guess the question is always ‘Does lower cost mean lower quality’. Well the short answer is no it simply means video production made smarter. There has always been room to improve on production techniques in corporate film-making. For many years there was very little offered by the industry in terms of economical advantages. We feel that at Cedar House Productions we have always listened to our clients and worked with them to achieve what they want at a price they can afford. Without cutting corners we have made video production smarter, giving more to the client in terms of delivery and quality. Our ethos has always been to develop partnerships and if your not happy then we’re not happy.
