Office Photography and Video for Kingfisher Digital in London

Posted in Location / Annual Report Photography, Corporate Video for Companies, Websites

Piranha was commissioned by Kingfisher Digital as part of Kingfisher Plc to populate their website with new office photography and video interviews.

The company is on the forefront of coding and innovation, for their flagship stores.  They provide consumer facing software to aid and simplify the online shopping experience.

The photographic brief was to provide very contemporary and fresh images.  The pictures highlight the working environment within the offices which have a lively atmosphere.  There are inspirational leaders and the company is a fun place to work.

The photographs captured people, from the start of the day during the ‘stand ups’ review and planning meetings, through lunch, which is often themed, to staff in technical briefings and coding. The images help to recruit the growing need for quality staff, so as to achieve great things for the Kingfisher Group.

Corporate Video – Interviews and Events

Posted in Corporate Video for Companies

Piranha has been helping many clients with their corporate videos over the past year. These include interviews where companies use online media to describe their companies strengths and areas of business, this also allows for the use of video cutaways to illustrate the day to day workings and bring the interview to life through the personalities of the directors themselves.

The events covered are varied from the Oil and Gas Year evening at the Dorchester, through to presentations at Downing Street and Conferences in London and abroad.

Dear Sam, Douglas and Adrian,
 
Last week’s investor meeting was the ‘best one yet’ in Simon’s opinion and we certainly received really great feedback from our investors. One chap from the states complimented us on the quality of our video editing. 

Thank you – we get very stressed, we ask for lots of last minute changes and you always deliver a great product and we’ve very grateful.
 
Lunch soon?
 
Kind regards,

A Corporate Video in Progress

Corporate Video on Location in London

Creating a successful and relaxed corporate video requires two people

The photograph shows a typical setup by our videographer. Douglas (on the right) is art directing to ensure that the speaker feels as relaxed as possible and to help guide the person being filmed.

Having a two man team on location works very well, as one can focus totally on the technical aspects and the other ensure the subject is pronouncing words correctly, not repeating or deviating from the message, this is very important as often left to their own devices a subject can speak too quickly on a familiar subject or place an emphasis on the wrong words, or in a flat voice which wont hold the attention of the audience for very long.

Adrian our videographer is responsible for setting up and handling the video and audio recording, while I manage the lighting and the interview itself. Douglas Fry, Art Direction

NEWS FLASH – New Tascam Audio Recorder for Video

Posted in Corporate Video for Companies, Tips and News from Piranha

New Audio Equipment for Video

Audio, accounts for about 60 -70 % of the watchability of a video or film. A poor video quality with excellent sound is bearable, poor sound but with great video clarity is switched off after 30 seconds.

In recent years small digital and very portable audio devices have made great strides in improving audio on location and are a great improvement on the widespread use of microphones attached  to the top of cameras, and some even allow professional XLR inputs from broadcast microphones. However there is a limit to the benefits such devices can bring. The pre amps that magnify the sound from the mic should have little or virtually noise and the tonal range should be wide, and we decided that in order to improve our video offering by leaps and bounds, we would upgrade our audio recording capability.

After a lot of research, we purchased a new Tascam PD-H6 solid state broadcast audio recorder, only slightly larger in physical size to the typical device,  it offers a recording quality that has to be heard to be believed, using the same microphones as before this recorder can deliver a rich clear audio track to any corporate or business video, with so much clarity you can almost hear the interviewee’s watch ticking, all saved to solid state disks at a resolution way over CD quality.

With a series of corporate projects to shoot and complete before Christmas, we look forward to producing the highest quality audio and video to our clients.
