Installing a green roof (video)

This short video shows how to install a DIY kit green roof on a domestic structure. We produced it for a startup, Verdico who are launching a new product, the VerdiRoof in a box. They wanted something that they could show to their new sales team to help explain how the kit works and how easy the roofs are to install.

The video features a spoken commentary on how the process works by Nigel Wraxall, one of the Directors. This is paired with images of the VerdiRoof kit and speeded up footage of three of the Directors installing a green roof for a client.

Film festival promo (audio slideshow)

This short promo pairs photos taken by volunteers from the festival in previous years with music by These Ghosts.

In order to make the promo, we collected as many images as we could and selected those that best represented the range of unusual film screening venues, and that captured the atmosphere at events. We were keen to feature music by a band with a local connection. We chose the repeated chorus from The Great Unknown by These Ghosts because of its filmic energy and intensity.

Classrooms for a London primary school (video)

This video tells the story of the classrooms built by Danzer – a modular construction company – for Charles Dickens primary school in London. It features head teacher Cassie Smith, LB Southwark architect Jeremy Peakin, and Dan Holloway of Danzer group. They talk about the background to the build, why LB Southwark chose Danzer to deliver it, the design, manufacture and installation process, and how the classrooms are working in practice.

We were commissioned to produce this video by Danzer for their website. Our aim was to introduce potential clients to Danzer and showcase Danzer’s work in an engaging way. We proposed unscripted interviews with clients and Danzer personnel, so as to give a natural and authentic account of the build from the different perspectives of those involved. We interviewed Dan Holloway (Danzer) at his home in Blackheath, and visited the school to shoot footage of the classrooms and talk to the head teacher and architect. Their interviews serve as powerful testimonials.

We provided the edited video to Danzer for their digital marketing providers Imoso to add the titles and wrapper, so as to ensure brand continuity.

This short podcast for Dotmaker Tours features artist and curator Cathy Haynes introducing the new guided walk that she will be leading in 2015: A Genius Tour.
