Our film crew was accompanied by Ouno Creative Director, Simon Pipe, whose job was to art direct the two day shoot in Ripley, Derbyshire. The creative team and Manthorpe had previously discussed what needed to feature in the footage, and how the film crew could successfully achieve each objective. A variety of video technology – including a cutting edge slow-motion capable camera, camera boom and tiny GoPro cameras (for placement into machinery) – were all used to ensure Ouno Creative obtained a diverse selection of footage, that will result in an engaging set of videos. Our equipment was especially necessary to tackle the sheer size of the Manthorpe Engineering premises and their equipment. We’d also like to thank the incredibly helpful Manthorpe team, without whom we would not have achieved some of the great shots that we’ve captured. Their cooperation and huge abundance of enthusiasm made the shoot a real pleasure.
Ouno Creative are extremely happy with the footage so far, and with one more shoot scheduled for March, we’re looking forward to editing the film and stitching it together to create a compelling video portfolio for Manthorpe Engineering.
