We’ll be back on Wednesday – probably with hangovers.
It’s not often Tim walks into the office and tells us he needs to take pictures of three hot chicks. Using our pop-up light tent and light system, we decided to set up the shoot in the studio. Luckily, our pop-up light tent had a Perspex base to ensure any accidents were avoided!
Louise was our ‘chick wrangler’ while Tim and Dean took the shots using a Canon EOS 60D and a Nikon D7000.
Over the last 36 hours some members of our team have been in Kiel, Germany capturing a medical symposia meeting, setting up and filming a live surgery webcast and rounding off the day with video interviews and training lab footage.
The 60 minute live surgery webcast was viewed by over 44 countries worldwide, and with four cameras and audio to mix we needed to be on our toes! We also captured an afternoon of education based presentations which we will edit and upload for a dedicated online medical resource site.
We really enjoy these events – despite worrying about any potential problems, a good end result makes it all worthwhile. Well, that and a couple of refreshing German beers at the end of the day!
We’ve got a load of web design and development work winding its way through the studio at the moment. The latest ones to go live are a new website for our equestrian video affiliates Cavewood Productions, a simple yet professional website for Roy Orbison tribute Dave Montanna and a great B2B website for UK based Odlings Memorials, showcasing their range of products and the beautiful hand crafted designs they produce. Feel free to check them out here:
Sometimes we just need to get stuff out of our heads. While design can be one of the most enjoyable creative processes, creating our own stuff is also an important way of letting off steam. Who needs painkillers when you can let rip on your own creation. There’s something very therapeutic about cutting and shredding your own photos, laying up a collage and then scribbling all over it…
Louise Parker joined us at the end of 2011 and has quickly become a valued member of our team. Louise completed a three year graphic design degree at Salford University in 2011 and graduated with first class honours. Having already produced outstanding work on a number of web and graphic design projects for us, we’re sure she’ll continue to bring a fresh perspective and a keen insight to our work. Oh, and without sounding sexist, she makes fabulous cakes that go down very well with everyone in the studio!
Or so says Andy Williams. With the Phil Spector Christmas Album on constant rotation (still slightly more acceptable than Rock & Roll Christmas by Gary Glitter), we find ourselves getting a wee bit giddy about the forthcoming festivities. We hope all our clients awake on Christmas morning to find a pleasant surprise in their stockings. See you all in 2012…
