Event photography

February 3, 2015 at 2:49 pm

As artisans when it comes to knowing our way around a camera, we’re sometimes asked if we “do stills”? Well yes, yes we do. Video has perhaps put photography a little in the shade but no one would reasonably suggest the two are mutually exclusive. They are two quite unique […]

 
Blunt, Bryant and #Wazzockgate

Blunt, Bryant and #Wazzockgate

January 19, 2015 at 4:34 pm

  Highly unimaginative political posturing appears to have seen the Labour member for HollowSoundbites North, Chris Bryant, hoist by his own eminently prejudiced petard. Cited by Bryant as an example of the “privileged background” that allegedly dominates the arts, James Blunt understandably went on the offensive, using that most elitist […]

Get some personality in that video.

January 7, 2015 at 1:12 pm

Your marketing video needs it like a plant needs osmosis. I’m not suggesting you are a partially permeable membrane, although all are welcome on this blog. Personality is easily overlooked in the context of video production, especially if it is a relatively “straight” piece like an interview or “talking heads”. […]

The cult of the mutual superlative

December 9, 2014 at 1:51 pm

More often than not it’s the “6.75 mistakes your website will make”, or “29 heinous cyber sins that any business owner will recant on their deathbed”.Not from us. We angle our coruscating and branded torch on a more worrying development. Perhaps development is something of a misnomer. From what I […]

 
Now we do……

Now we do……

November 14, 2014 at 3:11 pm

It’s an all too familiar sight. A business wants to further bolster its pockets and delights in telling you about their all new service.Their new, unrelated service. Now you can get painting, decorating and SEO all under one roof. Of course they may well have drafted in an SEO aficionado […]

 
Scattered audience – A new hope for podcasting?

Scattered audience – A new hope for podcasting?

August 29, 2014 at 12:34 pm

“Audiences are divided like never before”. The words uttered by VO extraordinaire Gerard Fletcher in our first podcasting showreel 7 years ago. That script has undeniably stood the test of time. The fragmentation of viewers and listeners to all kinds of media  has only become more pronounced. We all know […]

 
I don’t want to share!

I don’t want to share!

August 5, 2014 at 3:14 pm

Its been going on for far too long. The cult of sharing needs to expunged from social media. Every day without fail, my timeline asphyxiates under a humungous plastic bag of robotic RTs for other people’s articles on the Retweeter’s so called area of expertise. Yes, I understand the theory; […]

The next voice arriving at Paddington will be…

Colin Firth tends to have the hand of Midas. From dashingly soaked Romeos to hesitant but ultimately triumphant monarchs, Firth conquers all. Apart from Paddington Bear. Yes, finding a suitable voice style for the upcoming movie about Mr P Bear has eluded the usually multi faceted actor. The producer and […]

 
Reduced supercilliousness discovered in London

Reduced supercilliousness discovered in London

July 17, 2014 at 10:41 am

Don’t get me wrong, I love London. The scent of possibility lingers long after the heavy, foul air of the tube has made its excuses. If we’re putting our cards on the table, our bustling capital suffers from an image problem and it’s not The Shard. Whether or not this […]

 
Goals. Simple, but effective.

Goals. Simple, but effective.

July 16, 2014 at 10:34 am

The most straightforward activities pay the most dividends. I wouldn’t claim this to be a revelation of especially startling proportions, but it doubtless remains overlooked on an all too regular basis. You need a jolt now and again. Actually you need it all the time. Professional or private aspirations are […]
