Adam Knibb architects wanted to showcase a project in which they linked an old building with a new structure, which needed careful and sensitive planning. We went on site to film the finished project using drones and interviewed the architects to talk us through the case study. We produced a full 90 second testimonial film and a 15-second social media teaser.
Bullet were asked to work with Saints Foundation to create a series of four videos for Southampton FC's second annual Saints Together week, following on from the huge success of a similar campaign the previous year. The aim was to show the connection between the Foundation, the Club and the local community and use inspirational stories to show the variety of programmes offered. Each video was shot on a different location, with its own challenges in a limited time period. Two crew members went on each shoot and then the footage was edited back in the Southampton-based studio and delivered on time for the campaign week.
The first video featured athlete Iwan Thomas who visited Saints Foundation’s Regional Talent Hub to discover what the SaintsAbility project is doing for young people with a disability, and learn more about one participant’s inspiring story.
Saints Together week continued with a look at the incredible work Saints Foundation do for the elderly in Southampton in their 'Generation Gains' programme
As a lifelong Saints fan, Steven has always felt the connection between his Club and his community, and as part of Saints Together he wanted to find out how Saints Foundation are integral to both… He chats to Laura to see her journey.
As a reward for Kian’s positive engagement with the Primary Stars programme, Southampton striker Charlie Austin paid him a special visit for Saints Together.
Bullet was delighted to be asked to produce a series of short films to support Southampton Football Club's Saints Together Campaign, aimed at raising the profile of all the amazing work that Saints Foundation do for the community. We produced a total of five social media videos – each telling a different story to showcase the different elements of the Foundation.
One video was released every day of the Campaign week and the content achieved in excess of 100,000 views after just 7 days.
Solent Laundry Service is a local firm, based in Eastleigh, who we've worked with over the years. We were asked to create a short film to demonstrate the installation process of their specialist machines, from start to finish. Our aim was to get across the professionalism and expertise of the company, capturing every small detail along the way. We interviewed customers to get real-life testimonials - the best way to showcase the benefits of any company, as well as the SLS management to talk us through the process.
We also filmed the installation of a Miele laundry by SLS at Milton Abbey School, to demonstrate how the process works in real-life situations.
One of the most prestigious filming situations we have done for SLS was the installation of their Miele machines at the Savoy Hotel, London. It was important to SLS for us to get across the challenges involved and demonstrate how they overcame them for their customers. The basement location, access and narrow corridors were all issues that needed to be addressed and they had to also ensure laundry service was able to continue whilst the new equipment was being installed to minimise disruption to the hotel. We set up time-lapse cameras, interviewed key stakeholders and captured the full process from start to finish over a week’s worth of filming. SLS used the finished film to showcase the installation experience.
Here are the 15 and 30-second teaser and the full testimonial film, which showcased their quality of workmanship.
MDL Marinas wanted us to film a commercial Lifestyle film to showcase how their Marinas are used. We worked together with White Hype to create this short film, which was was shown at the Southampton Boatshow and Creative Captures also supported us in the filming. We filmed this over a 16-hour day, using drones for some of the birdseye shots and A7s2 cameras. We had the added challenge here of one of the models arriving injured for the shoot, which meant we had to improvise and be creative with our shots on the day!
Howler is a company that produces site fire alarms for commercial premises. The company has a number of valued customers who were willing to share their experience, and so asked Bullet to create a series of testimonial films, to show their products in action.
We interviewed trade customers to talk about the success of their products and created a film aimed at both new and existing customers, to reinforce the product benefits.
We've worked with Miele to showcase their industrial machines through a number of different types of film aimed at the commercial customer. Here, the testimonial films include coverage of Miele at trade shows and the use of their commercial products in a real-life case study.
Trade show films
The brief was to get across the fact that Miele provide specialist machines for specific sectors; the Hotelolympia film targeted the Food and Beverage sector, whilst the London Vet Show showcased products for the veterinary market. We spent the days filming the events and interviewing both company representatives and show-attendees to create bite-size films for Miele to use to reach out to their customers.
Case study films
The case study films show how different Miele products work in different settings, again to reinforce their ability to cater for the niche market. We filmed with local dealer, SLS who were installing a laundry at the Savoy Hotel, London. It was important to SLS for us to get across the challenges involved and demonstrate how they overcame them for their customers. The basement location, access and narrow corridors were all issues that needed to be addressed and they had to also ensure laundry service was able to continue whilst the new equipment was being installed to minimise disruption to the hotel. We set up time-lapse cameras, interviewed key stakeholders and captured the full process from start to finish over a week’s worth of filming. SLS used the finished film to showcase the installation experience.
We also filmed Candacraig House, to demonstrate the process of installing a Miele industrial laundry at a luxury hotel. We made sure we were on site to film the entire installation process - from the arrival of the fitters to the finished product, as well as interviewing the Miele customer on their experience.
Saints Foundation, the official charity of Southampton Football Club, teamed up with The Big Issue to provide an amazing opportunity for its vendors to enrol in an intensive employability programme.
To launch the campaign, Bullet filmed Southampton Football players visiting Winchester to meet the Big Issue vendors, offering their support for the day in selling the magazine to the public.
We then filmed the employability programme over six weeks to capture the true essence of the project and interview participants and organisers throughout the process.
The ethos for the programme was to give a ‘hand up, not a hand out’ to the most vulnerable in society who’s lives have been blighted by poverty and lack of opportunity. The aim of the programme was to equip the vendors, and other adults from the local community, with job-ready skills, and offer them work placements across Southampton Football Club.
We were honoured to be able to witness first-hand the way it genuinely changed people’s lives. The Foundation do an amazing job in our local community and we are proud to be able to bring their work to life on film.
