Last summer, Spectrecom’s video production expertise was brought to bear on a whole raft of London 2012 filming projects, resulting in our camera crews working like Trojans as they tirelessly covered the exploits of British gold medal-winner after British gold medal-winner.
But though the Games themselves have sailed into the mists of memory, the efforts to capitalise on their galvanising effect have not.
Already this year, Spectrecom has produced the Fit Cities 2013 film – all about the attempt to parlay London 2012’s legacy into improved health for those living within the six Olympic boroughs – and last week saw the launch of six new films we’ve produced on behalf of the Design Council.
Those films chronicle how the crème de la crème of British design talent came together to create the overall look of the London Olympics, with the five topics covered being product design, graphic design, digital design, fashion design, architectural design. The roster is completed by an overview film.
Check out the architecture film below, all about the design of the velodrome where so many of Team GB’s finest moments occurred.
The films screened a few weeks ago at a special Design Council event, all about championing the vital part that British design played in making the Games such a success, and they also appear on the new website beyond2012.org.uk, which has just been launched.
Feedback from the client has been very positive, with Bethany Winning, Events Programme Manager of the Design Council, saying that “we anticipate other international design exhibitions will be interested in using the films in the future, especially as we are working closely with UKTI and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.”
Continues Bethany: “We were super impressed with everything and already have plans for another film project we’d like to invite you to work with us on!”
As ever in these instances, it is only right and proper that credit is given where credit is due, so here are the Spectrecommers responsible: Rob Jowers (producer), Rose Darkins (production coordinator), Anthony Melton (director/editor), Rich Butterworth (camera operator), Alex Kerr (boom operator), Ben Kent (director).
