How can we help your Hospitality Brand/Business…?

It’s fair to say that as we prepare for the easing of lockdown here in London that things will not be the same, at least not in the immediate to short term.

How is the hospitality industry going to survive?

That is a tough one indeed and, as Pubs, Bars and Restaurants prepare to open their doors on July 4th, it will definitely not be Business as Usual, but nonetheless, our businesses must adapt and go on…

We’ve seen:

  • Date-nights in with Restaurant quality food being delivered to your door is on the rise
  • Online shopping at a peaking
  • And, there are Zoom Parties, Live Stream Conferences and online learning available for whatever you fancy.

Until we bounce back we have to stay focused, improve and adapt in the interim!

People can no longer touch, taste or smell before buying. ‘Maître D’ meet-and-greet’ and recommendations are on pause, and the old “we’ll have what they’re having” scenarios are ceased.

Moving forward is crucial, so (if you haven’t already) now is a great time to improve and update your business’s online content and offerings to shout out and showcase the changes your have made, your new products/services, and the fact that you are unbeaten and still here!

Upping Your Camera Phone Photography Game During Lockdown…

This week we launched the first of our Youtube Tutorials that can help you be creative at home and during the #Lockdown.

First Episode: Getting Started with Lightroom Mobile

 

Thinking about the future, it’s always great to forge forward with a sense of where we’ve come from and the things we’ve achieved and, with that in mind as well as the desire of wanting to give back to a community I’ve learnt so much from, I decided to create tutorials about @adobe’s #lightroomMobile.

Now, though the weather is beaming and many of us are blowing off the lockdown cobwebs and racing outdoors, my aim here is to not just educate people but to also inspire them to go back through the many images they’ve collected on their devices over the years and to relive, enhance and maybe even create something new to share or reconnect with those involved.

Starting off with a quick tour and aimed at all skill-levels, Founder & Director Darren Bandoo guides you through free mobile photo-editing app, Lightroom Mobile. In these 5-min tutorials, you will learn how to enhance existing images making them better before you add your filters, add and create your own style and save presets, and all-in-all up your photography game.

Tough times ahead… it’s time to think differently!

COVID-19 is devastating lives, families, communities and economies with no foreseeable end in sight and our hearts go out to all those who have been impacted the most and lost people close and dear to them…

We are in some very uncertain times, indeed. With global lockdowns, social distancing and isolation it seems like civilisation is on pause for everyone. And, while we wait for solutions and vaccines, from something so destructive and painful to us comes just one positive as our cities, industries and lives come to a halt carbon emissions are reducing greatly and Mother Nature gets a moment to heal…  It’s taken this to make that happen!

Could the changes we make now to the way we live, work and play become the blueprint for the future?

Working smarter not only for our personal safety but for the benefit of all, including our planet?

Virtual offices, Video conferences, Virtual Hang-outs, FaceTime and social media are commonplace for those well versed and once frowned upon but the masses are fast becoming important and everyday tools for us to stay in touch and connected. Social Events, Festivals, Concerts are all transitioning to these platforms for live content delivery…

It’s a time for thinking differently.

Do you have content you wish to deliver to your audience? A panel discussion with remote speakers, perhaps?

Let us help you deliver live content,  edit it for your video channel(s) and create bite-sized chunks to get your message to your audiences across your social accounts…

Case Study: Our Latest Video – A Fashion Show

Both the end client and ourselves are very happy with this recent video.

Having worked with this client for a few years on Photography, we introduced the idea of creating a highlight video of the event for marketing and, after a few discussions with their marketing team a rough brief was delivered to our inbox.

Brief:
To create an exciting sizzle reel to be used in future promotion of this Toronto based competition that showcases the winning Canadian Designers at London Fashion Week.
Requirements:
Energetic/Upbeat Music
To showcase the event start to finish and back to the front stage.
Modern and slightly edgy but maintaining the finesse and glamour of the competition.
1m30 Final Version
No problem!
Delivery:
We worked closely with our client to draw out more information and was able to plug into what their vision was looking like.  To assist in making this a reality DRGNFLY Productions Ltd were extremely over the moon to teamed up with one of our new creative partners, the super talented Alex Thraves.
Together we dissect their needs and were able to grow and build upon their vision, agree on realistic project scope and deliverables.
Conclusion:
Not only did we provide Full Photography coverage of the day but we also added value by inspiring our client to create more content and we’re proud to say that we delivered content that the client and their partners were very happy with.
 
Additional Content:
As we progressed, new content requirements from the clients marketing team surfaced and, of course, we were more than happy to assist:
– 60sec Social Version
– Onsite interviews with key stakeholders.
