Brighton Festival Opening Film

Brighton Festival is the largest arts festival in England and one of the major milestones in international cultural calendar.
We were shortlisted from over 20 companies to produce a launch film to be shown to the worlds media, at the press launch and at the opening night at Brighton Dome.

The film was also streamed to over 5,000 viewers on the website as part of the festivals opening night.

We worked with Chris Challis the Press Officer for Brighton Dome and Brighton Festival 2012 to produce a eye catching video brochure of everything to look forward to in the Festival in May.

A Bit about Premiere
This was the first corporate job we have used solely Adobe Premiere on and have to say we were very impressed with the new (Freddie) Mercury playback engine.. Everything ran on the fly whether it was low quality AVI formats to High quality R3D files they handles them like a dream. Another part of the video that would have taken a lifetime to edit using Final Cut 7 and After Effects was the lines which divide the footage and move it around the screen, they ran incredibly smoothly with the footage and high quality images.

Finally the Light Leaks that came up in the transitions would also require a render every time you wanted to playback in FC7 but again in Premiere they were a charm to work with.

We have been reluctant in the studio to move over to Premiere as it didn’t seem to be professional enough for what we needed it for, there is still a slow integration between AE and Premiere but I think it is getting better and it was a joy to work with on this project.

Jardin Flambeau

We were invited to film the Jardin Flambeau instillation in Brighton’s St Ann’s Well Garden as part of the Brighton Festival.

We filmed with a crew of 3 shooting on 2 X Canon 7D’s, one with Canon EF24-70mm f/2.8L USM and 2nd camera EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM.

It was such an amazing sight, we have got some amazing feedback and have already had over 3,000 views on Vimeo and Youtube.

“As the sun goes down over one of Brighton’s best loved local landmarks, French outdoor alchemists Compagnie Carabosse fan the flames of our imaginations with an elemental Fire Garden.

St Ann’s Well Gardens may have derived its fame and fortune from its waters – its ancient spring once the centrepiece of an 18th-century health spa – but it is fire that now transforms this most elegant of Brighton’s open spaces.”
