Deptford celebrates the Paralympic flame

One and a half weeks ago and with a bit of a delay, the Paralympic torch came through Deptford at the corner of Alloa Road and Evelyn Street. Thousands of spectators waited excitedly in spite of the rain on the pavements rise to welcome and celebrate the athletes, who were overwhelmed by the warm welcome. It was obvious that the athletes were in pleasant anticipation of the Games. web page speed . The trail led through to Deptford High Street and was handed over to Greenwich at Creek Road where the flame passed the refurbished Cutty Sark and shipped over by the bearers in a boat across the Thames to continue the journey to the Olympic Village.

With a brief from Lewisham council to film this spectacular event we headed off to the starting point, laden with our in-house video equipment. There we waited, approximately one hour in the rain for the delayed torch with a too-small umbrella.

Just in time with the arrival of the torch, the rain had stopped and the fight for the best shots begun. I successfully dodged the crisscrossing feet chasing the torch bearers but instead found myself flying over an unexpected hydrant obstructing me.
But yet the mood was great and the jubilant spectators and the happy faces of the athletes were a welcome compensation to my bruises.
My stint of sports was covered for this week and with a throbbing knee, flat feet, a lot of footage and goosepimples on the skin we headed back to the studio.
2.2 miles within one hour: my personal record! That was not the easiest job but exciting and unforgettable. Mission accomplished!

Doreen Lawrence carries the olympic torch

On Monday the 23rd of July Doreen Lawrence who founded the Stephen Lawrence trust ran 300 yards with the torch as it travelled from Lewisham to Wandsworth. She carried the flame to the centre, where Live vision is settled and handed it over to the current young mayor of Lewisham Kieran Lang. The Mayor of Lewisham, Sir Steve Bullock was on the spot as well as many people who wanted to snatch a gaze at the torch.
The musical accompaniment was provided by several bands and singers from a project called Peacemix, which gives young people a chance to get discovered and supports them by developing their skills.

Back to the 80’s

Just before Christmas we received a call from Computers Unlimited with an unusual request, to send their staff back to the 80s for a special Christmas event.

The event took place outdoors in front of CU’s Colindale offices in front of a green screen. One by one, the various departments chose their favourite song and sang karaoke style, giving some amazing performances.

A-HA, Michael Jackson, and Cyndi Lauper echoed from the speakers and the staff at Computers Unlimited had had great fun impersonating their favourite pop acts. The recorded footage was imported directly into After Effects and combined with a funky 80s animated background. That same evening, the winners were announced. The Inventory department with it’s stunning choreography and the loud outfits singing the Salt’n Pepa hit “Push It” gave the most impressive performance.

Eine unvergessliche Reise zurück in die 80er Jahre mit Computers Unlimited

Kurz vor Weihnachten bekamen wir einen Anruf von Computers Unlimited mit der Frage ob wir die Mitarbeiter für eine firmeninterne Weihnachtsaktion für kurze Zeit in die 80er Jahre schicken können.

Der Dreh fand draussen auf dem Gelände von Computers Unlimited statt. Nacheinander suchten sich die verschiedenen Abteilungen einen Song aus den 80ern aus, zu dem sie Playback gesungen und unglaubliche Performances hingelegt haben.

A-HA, Michael Jackson, Cyndi Lauper u.v.m. schallten aus den Boxen und die Mitarbeiter von Computers Unlimited hatten ihre reinste Freude.
Das vor Greenscreen aufgenommene Material wurde direkt in After Effects importiert und mit einer trashigen 80er-Jahre Animation hinterlegt.

Noch am gleichen Abend wurde der Sieger gekürt. Die Inventur-Abteilung hat mit ihrer atemberaubenden Choreographie und ihren schrillen Outfits zu Salt’n Pepa “Push it” die eindrucksvollste Performance des Tages hingelegt.

Falls Sie ein aehnliches Events planen rufen Sie uns an oder schreiben Sie uns.

Peu avant Noël nous avons reçu un appel de Computers Unlimited faisant une étrange requête : renvoyer leur personnel dans le temps jusqu’aux années ’80 pour un événement spécial de Noël.

L’événement a eu lieu en plein air juste devant les bureaux de CU à Colindale, et tout cela devant un écran vert. Un à un, les différents départements ont choisi leur chanson favorite et l’ont chantée style karaoké, donnant des performances étonnantes.

A-HA, Michael Jackson et Cyndi Lauper résonnaient des haut-parleurs et le personnel de Computers Unlimited s’est beaucoup amusé en imitant leurs actes pop préférés. Le métrage capté a été importé directement dans le logiciel de After Effects et ensuite combiné avec un arrière-plan animé « funky ». Le soir même, les gagnants ont étés annoncés. Le département d’inventaire, avec sa chorégraphie époustouflante et ses tenues vivaces, ont chanté “Push It” de Salt’n Pepa et ont donné le rendement le plus impressionnant.

Poco prima di Natale abbiamo ricevuto una chiamata da Computers Unlimited per fare una strana richiesta: mandare i loro impiegati indietro nel tempo agli anni ottanta per un evento natalizio speciale.

L’evento è avvenuto fuori dagli uffici a Colindale di CU, tutto davanti ad uno schermo verde. Uno a uno, i vari dipartimenti hanno scelto la loro canzone preferita e hanno cantato stile karaoke, dando delle incredibili prestazioni.

A-HA, Michael Jackson e Cyndi Lauper echeggiavano dagli altoparlanti e gli impiegati di Computers Unlimited si sono divertiti molto facendo le imitazioni dei loro atti pop preferiti. Il metraggio captato è stato importato direttamente sul programma di After Effects dove si è poi stato aggiunto uno sfondo animato “funky”. Quella stessa sera i vincitori sono stati annunciati. Il dipartimento d’inventario, con la loro coreografia favolosa e i loro abiti vivaci, hanno cantato “Push It” di Salt’n Pepa, dando la prestazione più impressionante.
