Vote for Lime Venue Portfolio

We recently had the pleasure of creating the video for Lime Venue Portfolio’s submission for the 2021 MIAList Team Award.

With a tight timeframe and staff working remotely, we created a video that captures their commitment to each other as well as the industry. Delivered in-time, to brief and to the storyboard we had a very happy LVP Team.

We had a last-minute brief to produce a film, with a short turnaround time and DRGNFLY Productions LTD we’re amazing. Despite the challenges, they filmed our staff remotely, ensuring all key messages were captured edited out of ‘normal’ hours to ensure our deadline could be met. We are so happy with the result, THANK YOU!

A New Location? It’s time for a video!

We were extremely pleased when LDN Physio approached us to create a short punchy attention grabbing video for social media to shout out about their new location in Old Street, London.

It captures their physio and sports expertise and end-to-end services, as well as showcases the road to recovery.

Official Photographer to the Canadian Minister of Foreign Affairs

What an amazing experience it was to join the Canadian Minister of Foreign Affairs and his UK team at one of the G7 meetings recently as their official photographer.

The 3-day event was under the strict pandemic guidelines and was one of the most run-and-gun photography shoots I have ever done–each moment captured was taken within 5-10 seconds of entering each meeting room for the first time and literally immediately being ushered out. 📷📸🔥🔥🔥🔥

From, Grovenor Square to the Dorchester and then, for the most part, Lancaster House.

… No pauses, no time to play with settings, no retakes—you get the shot or you don’t. And, of course, there is no room for don’t.

Venue Promo Content – The Fun Must Go On…!

Just before Lockdown 2.0 we were approached to create some visual content for The Floodgate, Birmingham.

Brief: To create 3x 15 sec videos of the different fun zones that they have as well as a 1 min hero video that captures the venue, activities, cocktails and food for their online and social marketing.

Here’s a peek a what we did:

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.
