With September in full swing, it’s been another busy week for the Standby crew. From shooting a group of Mancunian guys playing rock, paper, scissors to learning about fertility – the guys have been well and truly getting stuck in.
Week 11 Shoots
This week Mark went on a very exciting shoot with one of our clients, VUE. He’s been working hard to create more “corporate style content for a couple of technical standards that are coming up for their heavy vehicle fleet.” In between work for VUE, he’s also been working on a background loop for Phase 3 which will be released later this year!
Meanwhile, Ash has been making great progress on a set of films for the upcoming Trinity Hospice Fundraiser later this month, which the team at Standby will be attending alongside some friendly faces.
On Thursday, Felix and Cath went on a social shoot with Jacamo, where they were given the privilege of filming 10-12 Mancunians playing kick-ups, rock, paper, scissors and competing in staring competitions. Keep your eyes peeled, because all will be revealed later this year!
Later in the week, Chris finalised the last few tweaks to the Cotton traders online treatment, bringing the total number of After Effect layers to well over (a very impressive) 300! We don’t know how he does it, really. He delivered the film on Wednesday which was received really well by the client – smashing it, as always Chris!
He’s also been working on a suite of edits for CARE Fertility – learning all about IVF treatment and embryo freezing in the process. In between edits he also scored an insane 3 pointer on the office basketball hoop.
In other news, work has begun on recruiting a new filmmaker for when Chris leaves us (we’ll miss you, Chris). Ash and Jack have been meeting with potential filmmakers and editors all week – and it looks like the team’s about to expand (again) very soon!
In preparation for the future expansion, the team have been working hard putting their very own desks together for the brand new office down the hall! Tune in next week to see if Mark ever got round to finishing his.
