The IoD Annual Convention stands out in the British business calendar as a celebration of enterprise and is truly a unique gathering. Working closely with the Institute of Directors we provided the creative direction for the staging, screen production and content for this year's Annual Convention at the Royal Albert Hall, London. Working alongside Blitz Communications (who provide technical staging services for the event) we were responsible for the look and feel of the stage set, the production of the opening video module and all screen content throughout the day. This entailed working closely with many of the speakers and their teams before and during the event. Speakers included: David Miliband, Richard Scudamore, Lord Mandelson, Lord Lawson, Anya Hindmarch, Sir Charlie Mayfield and Sir Randolph Fiennes.
For the Heritage Lottery Fund we produced a short film to introduce an important segment of the Heritage Exchange conference in London. Shot on location in Bristol and presented by Mayor of Bristol, George Ferguson CBE, the film explores the benefits and opportunities presented by heritage within towns and cities.
Continuing our series of films for the Heritage Lottery Fund, The Florrie Reborn celebrates the stunning transformation of a well-loved Liverpool landmark.
Closed for over 20 years, the 19th-century Jacobean-style building in Toxteth is one of the oldest surviving purpose-built youth clubs in the UK. For nearly a century ‘The Florrie’ was at the heart of some of the toughest areas of Liverpool, providing a centre for young people in the local area. With the help of a £4.13 million award from the Heritage Lottery Fund the Florrie has been transformed from a burnt-out shell back into a thriving and vibrant hub for the local community – both young and old.
The footage our team shot has been supplemented by fantastic 'before' imagery shot by John Scotland – demonstrating exactly what the HLF can help to achieve for places and people.
In the first of a series of films we're creating for the Heritage Lottery Fund, A Park for People tells the story of Myatt's Fields Park in Lambeth, now fully restored after receiving a grant of £1.52 million from HLF in 2006. Directed by Art Lewry, shot by Dan Parkes and Tony Dean, and edited by Dan Parkes the aim was to demonstrate the importance of inner city parks and show the positive effects they can have on communities.
For the Heritage Lottery Fund, Hunter Gatherer has just completed production of a new brand film that profiles 14 HLF-funded projects around the UK. Shot by Dan Parkes and Tony Dean, and directed by Peter 'Art' Lewry the film explores the benefits of HLF's work to people and communities as well as our heritage.
Hunter Gatherer has just completed a six and a half day location shoot for the Heritage Lottery Fund. Travelling 1,700 miles around the UK we captured 71 interviews, and 650GB of HD footage to bring the HLF-funded projects' stories to life. Locations included: SS Great Britain in Bristol; Blaenavon's Forgotten Landscapes in Wales; Myatt's Fields Park in London; The Florrie in Liverpool; the Riverside Museum in Glasgow; the Whitworth Art Gallery in Manchester; Birmingham Archives; St Paul's Old Ford church in London; the National Waterways Museum in Ellesmere Port; Bo'ness in Scotland; and Abbott's Hall Farm in Essex.
The footage was shot in HD on DSLR cameras by two incredibly talented cinematographers – Dan Parkes and Tony Dean. Post-production has now begun so you should be seeing the results of this marathon shoot very soon.
