Sure, the official partner of Southampton Football Club sat down with goalkeeper Alex McCarthy to talk 'pressure' as part of their ongoing sponsorship campaign. This video involves pre-match interview and footage from a match, whilst subtly promoting the Sure brand.
The Southampton Cup is an international youth academy tournament that we were asked to film to demonstrate the energy, vibrance and fun that that the teams have in the tournament. Boys and girls of all ages visited from America, Africa and Europe to take part, and we filmed their activities over the course of a week. Much of the filming took place at Southampton's Staplewood training ground.
We worked with Hugo Boss to create online video content for the Vendee Globe with three objectives in mind: Firstly to raise awareness and build excitement in the countdown to the event, secondly to capture live action for weekly updates whilst the race was on, and finally to produce a round-up of the whole event to help Hugo Boss secure sponsorship for the next race. The conditions were challenging to say the least, filming aboard helicopters, boats and RIBs but the end result was a great success. The videos achieved 30-40,000 views on social media - and Hugo Boss secured their sponsorship for the following year.
We were honoured to be asked to film the Invictus Games and sent Matthew out to Florida for a week on his own to shoot the event. He spent several long 15-hour days filming track-side in extreme temperatures, using multiple cameras and gimbal stabilisers to capture the high-speed footage, interviewing key team members and being on hand for all the behind the scenes action. He was constantly creating new content to send back to the UK for daily social media updates - he even edited footage on the plane, taken earlier that day of the competitors arriving for their flight to be ready to show once they touched down in Florida. Each video received 30-40,000 views via social media. It was a truly memorable and inspirational filming experience and one we'll never forget.
Southampton FC wanted to raise the profile of women's football within the club and asked Bullet to create a series of videos to promote the 'Same Game Campaign'. We interviewed the top team players, coaches and the Director of Football, and filmed live training sessions to capture the action. We had to work quickly in the editing suite to go live in time for the FA Girls' Football Week and the first film aired at St Mary's stadium before the Southampton v Burnley kickoff. A film was released every day of the week via social media and the club's own website, with each video receiving more than 20,000 views.
