A Hostel for the Homeless (video)

This video tells the story of the hostel built by Danzer – a modular construction company – for the Emmaus homeless community in Hastings.  It features Mike Edwards of Emmaus Hastings & Rother, consultant architect Bob Bogie and Dan Holloway of Danzer group. They talk about the background to the build, why Emmaus chose Danzer to deliver it, the design, manufacture and installation process, and how the hostel is 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 went to Hastings to shoot footage of the hostel and interview Mike Edwards and Bob Bogie (Emmaus). 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.
