It’s official! dbp is now a production team

That’s right.

We have produced our first client advert and I have to say, it has been great working with them to create this.  From concept to delivery, dbp work closely with Red Rickshaw to ensure the product meets their needs.

It was a challenge that we happily took onboard and with that comes problem-solving and having to learn and grow the studio skillset into this area.  We’re pleased that the Red Rickshaw management and marketing teams are happy and we are looking forward to our ongoing projects.

Brief:

1 – To create a low cost ‘taste test’ style youtube channel video for food retailer Red Rickshaw to showcase the tasty Alphonso Mango for this year’s Mango Season  – circa 1m30s

2 – To create a shorter version for Facebook advertising – circa 30s

Time: 1 week to shoot, edit and launch – is now live on their channel.  See below…

Introducing: ScrummyTV

One of my favourite things to photograph is food and recently created a handful of ‘Tasty’ type cooking recipe videos for my wellness blog DRGNFLY360’s ‘ScrummyTV‘ which will focus on curating recipes from reputable wellness professionals and enthusiasts and converting them into short and easy to follow videos.  These first 2 are just a test.

Here’s a sneak peek:

Wow, Summer went fast! Bring on the silly season…

As summer closes, we look back at the last quarter and are blessed to have been so busy.

Startups are tough and the events industry is one of the toughest and most satisfying to be a part of. We’ve done Weddings, Conferences, Networking events, Health Event (#Eventwell2017), Social Content, Cinemagraphs, Lifestyle Shoots – just to name a few… It has been incredible.

A big shout out to our clients and our ongoing supporters.

Here are just a handful of our highlights
