Special events

Recording a special event in a professional way and then keeping the highlights for the future seems obvious. But this is often not well thought out and very poor in quality. We have experience over many years and utilising the finest of equipment, skills and techniques. Outputting video you will enjoy for many years to come and we can output onto temporary websites for remote access to those that could not make it in person.

Your rock band/ orchestra promotion

From a setup recording of your band (we love all music) to recording a gig, pub event, live orchestral event. Where ever that may be we will get our heads around the time factor, the access, sound quality, and all production considerations to produce just what you need and within a tight budget. Editing will naturally be crucial to a project like this, Introducing effects, timing and a finesse you would not have imagined.

Summer Fair

A summer fair will take an enormous mount of organisation. Often many contributors and participants come together to create a fabulous environment. Covering such an event needs a dedicated production company that works hard, thinks fast, is experienced. The completed video content can be important for reviewing, promoting, public relations and mere archiving. Sometimes we are just asked to condense your filming. Edit varied images (photos and video) into a crafted output. We are happy to do this and advise on what material will be needed.

Educational event

From the graduation ceremony to the school play. Every moment needs to be captured reliably, high quality, with consideration and well planned. We review the location, consider the lighting and sound and the safety aspects involved. There is a lot that should be considered and we make light work of it. But its in the output that you realise the difference!

Special events

BUSINESS

Activate has experience in covering special live events. Company lectures, group trainig, fire safety demonstration, building launch event. The types of video events that we will cover is always growing with the technology and the times.

Simplify Video with AI Animation Software

There are plenty of reasons to simplify video production techniques - not least to be able to make productions quicker. Often we have great ideas and know it could make a good communication piece. So this article I wrote investigates one way which is assisted by new AI technology. AnimationMadeSimple article.

Mobil app launch

Filming an exhibition info video for the launch of a major new Finance mobile app was a challenge. In two weeks we were commissioned to find a suitable restaurant location, devise a telling storyline, find film and edit actors. the outcome a two minute broadcast level info video for display on an exhibition giant screen and online. “Setting the scene for the new app was a crucial requirement of the video. It succeed superbly and drew people to the stand. Much more powerful than we expected. Impressed with the speed and accuracy of production”

The other end of the World

35 hours and 4 flights later we were in position on Australian turf to start building a new storyline that will be gradually promoting new canal repair technology to a brand new market. Attending a Irrigation conference and filming a daily video blog whilst getting to know the needs of specialist consulting engineers and regional canal system council officers. The promotion of specialist product such as this needs versatile camera techniques and the ability to think on the go to capture material to tell the story. Traveling light at the same time and dealing with opposite time zones!
Nature can be found so locally Whilst working on some new Image protection technology that is likely to change the way images are delivered online, we discovered a local photographer who is producing extraordinarily beautiful nature images. We are going to be working with him to study his work as a storyline and to trial our equipment. What is extraordinary is the level of beauty he is cataloguing of nature so local to our own production base. We look forward to showing his work before long and securing his images of course.

As video and marketing strategies become more integrated we have worked out ways to offer this service that becomes fundamental to a strong video campaign. Call us to learn more>>

Dec 2021

Building marketing funnels is complex and has many moving parts. One of the most important elements is the integration of video. Be it a VSL (video sales letter) or a Youtube in stream ad. The conversion for any arketing campaign is massively increased with the effective use of video. We build the funnels and offer the courses. This example funnel https://takeyourskillsonline.com/ demonstrates the opportunity. We can advise and produce the entire funnel including the video scripting and content.

A&S Landscape specialise in school canopies and we worked with AmbitActivate to take some photographs of a dining area canopy and take a video interview at Poynton High School in Cheshire. Danny was very efficient, the quality of the images and the edited video were fantastic and we would not hesitate to use him again for future projects. The dining area video looks great on our website and the school are delighted with the images, thanks again! Ruth Smith Marketing Coordinator A&S Landscape

Sept 2017

Completed several videos including fire safety, a specialist all weather canopy cover testimonial, and editing for a University technology testimonial. Each having deadlines and carried out with individual dedication to creative and quality attention.

March 2015

Final stages of specialist website development software are under way before the software goes into first testing stages. Participation in YouTube channel development with all related social media is in early stages.

Editing has been busy with sub-cutting footage for a key client and their International customer and partners. A proportion of our work is in providing services for other producers as has been the case for over 30 yrs in our industry experience of the video world. Other work continues on the development of promotional material for a key adults charity. We film and edit footage and have produced a number of short programmes for this worthy charity. Its particularly interesting work and they are very original with their approach to adult needs. We have some work going on evolving a complex content management system website for a key advertising agency into a parallel driven responsive mobile website. The benefits of responsiveness are great but this has to be aligned with the advantages of a powerful CMS and a complex visual website.

Respect to Cultures around the world

I was reading about the current position with Sony and Mr Obama’s position on their decision not to screen the multi million dollar movie. I think there has to always be a deal of respect to different cultures so it is difficult to comment on the precise decision Sony have taken. Clearly they need to consider their customers safety first. Freedom of speech on-line is good and that has to be within levels of respect. Hacking though has to be stopped!
