Shot on location in and around London, Sean Worker, CEO and President of BridgeStreet takes us on a tour of BridgeStreet's Stüdyo Paddington and the local neighbourhood – accompanied by Rosie the Mini Cooper.
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.
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.
To launch BridgeStreet's Satisfaction Guarantee the team at Hunter Gatherer partnered with Covent Garden-based animators Breakfast of Champions to create a new TVC and a new dynamic look for apartment brand's marketing promotions. With witty, retro/modern illustrations by Theresa Hilsden, the animation really brings to life the concepts of spacious apartment living, cosmopolitan lifestyle and the quality experience BridgeStreet provides and now guarantees.
As part of our re-branding of international serviced apartment company BridgeStreet, we produced a 60 second film to be used in presentations, exhibitions and online. The aim was to convey the essence of the brand while communicating the benefits that BridgeStreet brings – with brief snapshots into people's lives in their apartments and living life in the city. Shot in HD, in tandem with the stills shoot in London and New York, a range of scenarios covered BridgeStreet's three tier offer and diverse customer base. We needed a strong, unique and international house style for the new still and moving imagery we created for BridgeStreet so we brought in photographer Tyson Sadlo and his team to shoot it. Using the brilliant Canon 7Ds we could be sure that the moving footage matched the stills perfectly, ensuring consistency across all media – one of the reasons we have achieved such a strong look for BridgeStreet.
Actors were cast in New York and London to play BridgeStreet guests while apartments were scouted for the best and most representative locations. With much of the New York shoot taking place in public areas such as Union Square market, Central Park and a wonderful Tuscan bakery in Greenwich Village, permits and permissions had to be sought. As it turned out the New York shoot was a breeze, even though we packed a huge amount into one day. Everywhere we had amazing back-up and support from everyone at BridgeStreet – with some appearing in the film.
