Back in June, The Leyland Town Team hired us to produce this short highlights from Leyland Festival. It was a scorching day in Leyland town for the parade and once we arrived at Worden Park for the music and festivities, the party was in full swing.
The Encounter Festival 2023 took place throughout Preston over a full weekend. Packed with local performers and artists, it certainly was a feast for the eyes and ears. The Harris Museum contacted us to follow the action.

Close Up Magician Andrew Dean is launching a new product through his website for magicians to use in their performances. Once again, he asked us to produce a promotional video for COMET, with the only direction being ‘Please don’t make it cheesy’ In the space of 3 hours, we filmed this video in a conference room at Mitton Hall using a little window light and a small LED. You can view a Behind the Scenes image taken by one of Andy’s friends below.
We were delighted to hear that after sending this video to a potential client in the U.S, Andy secured a large sales order for this product, Job Done! If you are looking for a promotional video for your product, it does not have to be a big, complicated or expensive shoot, please get in touch with any questions. NORTH WEST PROMOTIONAL VIDEO
The team at Outwork Studios hired us to produce a series of Promotional Videos for their client, DIGS. Above is one dedicated to internationals. We spoke to real students who talked about their experiences when arriving to a new country and how welcoming the folks at DIGS are. ‘Moving away from home can be daunting, so we’re here to make sure that you have the best possible university experience whilst living in the U.K. At DIGS, we have a diverse community with students from over 48 countries living with us, so you can be guaranteed that you’ll feel right at home’
The following two videos are short promo’s for their social media pages, the above for The Pinncales site, and below, The Storthes Hall Park site in Huddesrfield.

Along with the highlights video above, we also produced 4 full length presentation videos for their website and on a separate filming slot, produced a video called Missed, by performance artist Krissi Musiol.
The day included talks by Dr Joanna Wolfarth, design researcher Sally Sutherland, and breastfeeding councillor and doula Louise Oliver.
As part of the Harris Your Place, which will see the museum close until 2024, they hired us to produce a couple of short films. The first, which had Cllr. Kelly from Preston Council handing over the ceremonial keys to Michael Conlon from Conlon Construction. Artist, Gavin Renshaw was commissioned to create a Mural that would be displayed in front of the Harris whilst works continued. Below is a short video from the opening event.
We produced quite a number of videos for schools around the Northwest during the lockdown periods and honestly thought they would settle down a little now that restrictions have been lifted. Luckily for us, we were wrong. It seems that they have really taken off! Here are a few examples of what we have been working on this year.

Late last year we joined the team at The Harris Museum to take care of their Photography & Videography for web and social media purposes. The contract was for 12 months to see them through to September 2021 when they will be closing down for major renovation’s and repairs for which our work would assist in receiving grants from The National Lottery. And guess what? They received all the money!!!
During the last 6 months we have worked on so many projects with The Harris and we’d just like to share some of our favorite’s with you on this blog.
Black History Month
For this years Black History Month we produced a number of short videos with people in the community and their relationship with both the Harris and Preston.
Possibly our favorite collaborations with The Harris would be Camp in the Collection. Camp enthusiast, actor, screenwriter and thoroughly nice chap Harry Clayton-Wright takes us on tour of the museum and reveals how much ‘Camp’ is on display.
During the Lockdown, the Harris invited musicians to put on a short set for online purposes. For this we had a multi-camera set up with a sound technician to take care of all the audio. Here are a few short examples from a selections of the shows.
It has been great working with all the team so far, so many different projects have really introduced us to a wider community of talented people, its been a real pleasure. If you would like to know more about what we can offer for your business then please get in touch.
2020 has been a very challenging year for all the wonderful Staff, Nurses, Volunteers and many others who work in the Health and Social Care sector. We have been working with a number of Charities/Hospices and care groups over the Lockdown period to help promote them and offer alternative, online productions of their events.
Wigan & Leigh Hospice hired us on 2 occasions this year to produce an ‘online service’ for family and friends of those who had sadly passed. Usually, people would be able to visit the grounds, walk through the wooded area and attend a small remembrance service but with the current restrictions, that has been impossible.
At the end of the year, they asked for something similar to cover their Light for a Life service.
Pelican Care Group hired us to create a series of videos for their web and social media pages to promote what they provide for vulnerable children and young adults. For this particular video, we interviewed the staff and spent the day with them around Southport & Formby.

Like most businesses, the Coronavirus pretty much shut down our doors from March to June. We could have sat around once the restrictions started to slowly lift but we decided enough time had been spent enjoying the quiet life in our garden, taking part in Zoom quiz nights so we started reaching out to some of our previous clients to see what we could offer during the lockdown period.
In our line of work there are plenty of opportunities to work a safe distances and for our first day back, flying a Drone around Foxfields Country Hotel or simply walking around the building with no staff present was a perfect way to kick us back into work.
