We created a 30 second YouTube advert for Newbury College, and we'd love to share it with you, but you'll have to wait until it's officially released!
Until then, here's a snap of the stars, who were treated along with their classmates to a special preview of the video, popcorn, red carpet and all!
Stay tuned for the videos release, especially if you're wondering what to do when you leave school...
So we do lots of filming for the Corn Exchange, in Newbury. They are always putting on cool events that showcase the real breadth and diversity of the arts in their live outdoor events. We recently got to film this intoxicating piece, performed by a mixture of local artists and the team from Pan.Optikum, along with Newbury’s own Corn Exchange and 101 Outdoor Arts Creation Space, who bring multi-cultural and multi-lingual aspects to the performance, forcing the audience to focus on the narrative as it meandered through to its conclusion via the mediums of dance, movement, graffiti, and even a massive rain machine! How cool is that?! Well, it was cool until the front row of audience members realised what was happening and got completely soaked! :-)
The stage was huge, as the video showcases, and was also double-sided to allow the narrative of the performance piece to split up and take you on a different journey, depending on what side you were watching.

We were recently asked to film an event in Reading, on the River Thames. Little did we know it would be a magnificent night-time adventure, with huge “makes”, as they were called, floating around the river. Following a spoken narrative over music that took the water’s natural inhabitants and turned them in to heroes and villains, and even included a monster!
The Walk The Plank team are based in Salford, and travel around the country creating fantastic outdoor arts events that weave in the history of the area they are performing in to the shows.
We had three camera operators, specifically chosen for their ability to capture high quality video footage in low-light conditions. And we’ve used a mixture of live audio from the event, alongside audience and event organiser vox-pops, to tell a quick highlights narrative about the piece and what it brings to the area, in this video. Doesn’t it look awesome!?!
