A recent project saw me working with the team at Breakwater IT in Norwich to produce a social media short film to help market their already successful company.
Breakwater IT have a great interactive Team page which was instigated years ago whereby the company’s many staff are arranged in a grid pattern and their headshot images instead of being static, follow the mouse pointer or user’s touch around the screen. This idea worked because I produced images of all of the staff members looking in various directions and small versions of these files could be used to quickly change each staff member’s image to point to a different destination.
In producing a short social media film for the company and working closely with their marketing manager we decided to incorporate the grid display idea into the short film work. To do this I again produced headshot style imagery of a set of staff members but this time instead of stills I produced film of each both moving to look in different directions, laughing and producing a silly expression. From the films produced I worked on several sequences designed to stand alone and act as intro and outro’s where needed in film work. In the short film above a short montage of staff movements is combined with an outro consisting of an animated logo, it’s short and sweet and hopefully a bit more interesting than most social media posts which it’s designed to replace. Finally I added a bouncy soundtrack fully licensed from Artist.io
If you’d like a short film producing for your company then let me know, I’m all ears and keen to work on some new projects. To see the Breakwater IT short please click below.
