    Day 3 on location with Take One TV

    Day 3 on location with Take One TV

    We arrived at the location with only one sequence and a small piece of trailer dialogue left to shoot now. We went through the same pattern as the last two days with setting up the equipment and keying the lighting while also doing sound checks.

    Day 2 on location with Take One TV

    Day 2 on location with Take One TV

    The next day was another early start (I was over it by this point!) at Take One HQ. We gathered the equipment and rushed to the location just ahead of the school rush hour. We arrived and were greeted by a warm plate of food. Yeah I forgot to mention this part earlier! The staff at Chartridge Lodge kindly provided us with bacon sandwiches (they even had gluten free variants for the likes of myself!) which is a lovely feeling, especially on a cold late November morning!

    Day 1 on location with Take One TV

    Day 1 on location with Take One TV

    On the 30th of November Take One wrapped up a 3 day shoot which I was a lucky enough to be a part of. We were filming 5 segments of content for the “National Learning Trust”. The large majority of the filming required a well known individual within Education, who had also been a director at the NLT, to share his stories and methods of teaching to the camera with the intent of using this video content to help teachers get the best out of themselves and their students while teaching.

    The last 3 days have been a mixed bag of (positive!) emotions. These were feelings such as excitement, responsibility, pride and an eagerness to learn. One thing I can safely say is that I had an amazing experience and am hopefully looking forward to many more experiences like this as part of the Take One team!

    Video Marketing in Gaming

    Video Marketing in Gaming

    A trend that is being predicted for 2018 is the use of video marketing within gaming, a follow on from the many gamification adjuncts for motivating employees in the sales and customer service fields perhaps? The top genre of sponsored content in the first quarter of 2017 on YouTube was gaming – so those Marketers on the lookout for the next biggest marketing channel to emerge should definitely be keeping their eye on it.

    The all-star cast of the long awaiting adaptation has ensured the stakes are quite high for the success of this film. There’s no denying the list of multi-generational stars who feature in the Agatha Christie classic is long and impressive: Dame Judi Dench, Michelle Pfeiffer, Daisy Ridley, Olivia Colman, Leslie Odom Jr and Johnny Depp to name but a few. Not forgetting Kenneth Branagh of course who stars in the leading role of Hercule Poirot and who also directed the film.
