The Brief

To film a live corporate event for UK Mail and DHL with a multiple camera setup (for cut aways, presenters, overall shots and a time lapse) and provide photography of the event. 24 hour turn around.

About the Project

This video had to comply with the company’s branding standards for both UK Mail and DHL which we applied during the video edit when using animated captions to introduce each presenter by keeping the UK Mail and DHL colours when featured relating to the company the person represented.

Due to the content at this event this project had a next day completion deadline, to enable the internal communication to be shared with all other employees who could not attend the event. On projects with a fast turnaround we always suggest that the customer is present when the final edit takes places, particularly when the video is of an importance nature that must be portrayed appropriately according to company guidelines. By editing with the customer this helps reduces time significantly as it cuts out the need to create draft edits which can be very time consuming as the files are large which will need to be exported from our editing software and then allow for further time for the exported footage to upload onto a mutual online platform for the customer to view, which could potentially need to be repeated several times.
