Corporate Filming

Liverpool FC

Corporate Filming can be used in many ways. We currently have a number of contracts with Liverpool Football Club to produce motivational videos and promotional videos, which includes work for the coaching staff and players as well as for the Recruitment Department. Over the past couple of years we have created videos for players such as Daniel Sturridge, Luis Suarez, Mario Balotelli, Rickie Lambert and Jordan Henderson as well as a number of team motivational videos. We have also produced a suite of videos for the Scouting & Recruitment team detailing every aspect of the club to promote it to potential new players. The videos are continually updated throughout the year with new footage.

We have now been producing videos for Premier League football clubs for over 15 years. In that time we have worked with Southampton, Tottenham, West Ham and Portsmouth, establishing ourselves as a specialist in the field. Please contact us to find out more about what we can offer.

Hyperlapse filming Glasgow – Innovate UK

Hyperlapse filming

Innovate UK

Hyperlapse filming  in Glasgow was a great way show this smart city in detail, during the day and at night. The technique is achieved by manually moving the camera a short distance between each time lapse shot and adds movement over much longer distances, creating an impressive and stylised snapshot of the city.

Innovate UK awarded Glasgow £24 million in 2013 to become a Future Cities Demonstrator. They commissioned us to make three films to show how the funding has transformed the city. New technologies such as intelligent lighting, a high-tech data hub and operations centre have made life in the city smarter, safer and more sustainable.

We were involved in the creative process from the start, making key decisions about overall style, contributors involved, locations, script writing and planning.  We made extensive use of hyperlapse, timelapse, slo-mo and aerial filming and even used an open top bus for some tracking shots!  Graphic overlays were also used to show the impact of funding on the city and highlight key messaging.

The final films were extremely well received, and were shown to the Secretary of State for Scotland during a recent visit.  They are also being used by Scottish government to showcase Glasgow as a city of the future.

Clear Dentistry Promo Video

A promo video explaining your company ethos is a great way to attract new clients. We worked with Clear Dentistry to explore what they felt was best about their business. The result was a short film, demonstrating their efficient, friendly staff and highlighting their up-to-date technology.

Chris Leech, Practice owner, said ‘we are delighted with the result Cass has provided for us. From the outset their professionalism was clear and the production value excellent. We have had wonderful feedback on the result they achieved for us and I am sure we will work again with them in the future’.

 

In this video we used slow motion and Ronin shots to create a visually pleasing aesthetic. This compliments the interviews and live action perfectly.

 

Animated Christmas Film

Animated Christmas Film – Nix Communications

Animated films and branded content are something we are now being commissioned to make on a regular basis, and we were pleased to be asked by our client Nix Communications to work with them to create this heart warming, festive animated video.

The marketing team at Nix provided us with the outline of the story and we worked in consultation with them to initially develop, and then flesh out idea and storyboards. It was important to keep the content and visuals engaging, whilst still demonstrating the dependable and innovative nature of Nix Communications. We then set about creating the characters and backdrops, bringing the story to life.

We used the set and props in the animation to reinforce Nix’s brand and product base, highlighting key partner ‘Unify’ where appropriate. This was done by using the actual phones and software that Nix provide, and through paying close attention to the online systems they install and the benefits Nix Communications bring to businesses.

Because it was decided to tell the story with no dialogue, the music was an integral part of the narrative. We worked with one of our regular composers to create a bespoke soundtrack.

The animation was rolled out on a number of social media channels and garnered lots of publicity and fantastic feedback for the client, helping them stand out from their competition.
