Adoption Childrens’ Videos – Bradford Council’s Adoption Service

27 Feb

We’ve just produced eight childrens’ videos for Holliday Creative Marketing and their client, City of Bradford District Council’s Adoption Service.

The videos featured children who are being placed for adoption and were initially shown at an Adopter’s event and will then feature on the ‘Be My Parent’ website run by the British Association for Adoption and Fostering.

Feedback from the event shows that adopters took a great deal away from the event and were very positive about the videos.



Patient Information Videos: National Centre for Mental Health and Deafness

23 Feb

We’ve just started filming a series of patient information videos at the National Centre for Mental Health and Deafness at the John Denmark Unit,  Greater Manchester West NHS Foundation Trust in Prestwich.

The service provides a comprehensive Mental Health Service to deaf people of all ages who may experience emotional/behavioural issues, personality difficulties, drug and alcohol abuse, learning difficulties and many more. The service provides in-patient, day-patient, outpatient and community based services care.

The videos will have an ‘in-vision’ signer (signing British Sign Language), subtitles and voice-over narration and will include relevant information to patients coming to the unit for the first time and for them while they’re staying there.

We’re planning about four days of filming which will include filming two members of staff signing to camera in front of our portable green screen and lighting.  We expect then eight days of editing.  the videos will include, title screens with signer, subtitles and signer, role plays and cut-away footage.  Title screens and text will be suitable for people who are visually impaired and the videos will be narrated so that are as accessible as possible for anyone who watches them.

We’ll keep you posted on progress.

Fosterplus Conference Video

7 Feb

We’ve just delivered a short video to Holliday Creative Marketing for their client, Fosterplus.

Bradford NHS Staff Awards

25 Jan

We are now into our third of four days filming the Bradford NHS Staff Awards video.

Over four days of filming we will be visiting 15 different services and projects across the District filming staff, service users and patients who have been nominated or who are nominating various individuals and teams for a variety of awards including respect, openness, excellence, working together and improvement.

Our job is to film interviews of all the nominees talking about their jobs and roles together with how hey feel about being nominated and how it would feel to win.

We’re also filming the nominators talking about why the person or team have been nominated to reflect the particular award category they’ve been nominated for.

Wazim (in photo) is one of the nominees for the ‘respect’ award for the work he does in a low security prison ward in creating superb facilities and organising events for people, of all faiths on the ward, carry out their own religious activities.  But all his nominators also spoke about his fabulous, considerate and generous personality every time he came to work.

We’ve then captured cut-away footage to reflect the interviews, person’s or team’s work to enhance the whole nomination process.

The videos are first shown to the judging panel as part of the judging process and then shown at the Staff Award event in March 2012.

1st day of filming – Wirral Partnership Homes (WPH)

Our first day of filming for Wirral Partnership Homes’ 2012 Achievements video went really well.

We filmed at a variety of locations including; Westminster House – WPH’s new administration centre, two different sites of recently built homes showing unique building techniques and green and energy efficient homes and one of their filed offices which will relocate to their new administration centre.

We filmed Brian Simpson, WPH’s Chief Executive, at each of the locations saying a piece to camera explaining achievements and future plans.

Day two and three of the filming is next week.



Filming BSL Training Videos

10 Jan

Today was our first day of filming the BSL videos for the Institute of British Sign Language (iBSL).

Keystone have been commissioned to produce a series of training videos for the iBSL showing a series of people signing, in BSL, various stories and statements.  Questions are then asked, in BSL, for trainees to answer.  The stories and statements become longer and more complex in content for each of the levels as they increase.

Our next piece of work is to edit these together in a training format allowing time for the stories and statements to be understood and allotted times for questions to be answered.
