I was commissioned by Instro Precision Ltd. to create a series of short videos, showcasing their facilities and production of military grade equipment.
The project was thoroughly enjoyable and enabled me to develop my skills, particularly looking at the pre-production; storyboarding, location scouting and highlighting the important core values that Instro hold: Precision, Performance and Quality.
The project was made in partnership with the Faculty of Arts & Humanities at Canterbury Christ Church University. I was asked to include a current Film student in the project, as part of work experience within an industry setting. It was my responsibility to discuss the project with them before the shoot, and assist with guidance and direction. Having a second camera operator was useful for the shoot, teaching the student how to manipulate the camera and discussing the different shot choices and project as a whole, was a very encouraging experience for me.
The project was filmed and edited during the 2020 Covid-19 lockdown, precautions and procedures were taken place to allow a safe working environment for all workers at Instro, the student involved and my own safety.
The feedback I have received from Instro has been very positive, the video hit the brief they put forward perfectly, and I hope to work with them again in the future.
