Enter the Fuji!

For many years we have produced our photography on Canon cameras. But last year,  I made the decision to change my system to Fuji X. Changing camera systems is a big deal for a photographer. You not only have a major investment capitol wise,  but also emotionally.  With regular use the camera becomes an extension,  and you grow used to the organic nature of the images a system produces. Which is why this is only the third time I have changed systems in my entire career. But time moves on, and Canon being a very conservative company, have been slow…

New Master Video Download!

We have updated the master video files,  (“Original” in our download options) which we provide,  to a more efficient and better quality codec to improve your experience and provide a more future proof video. This codec is almost universally useable,  but on some older legacy systems issues may be encountered. Our system also provides customers with the option of downloading smaller versions of their videos,  in particular there is an option to download an “HD 1080p” mp4 version, which has a much smaller file size,  whilst still providing  excellent quality. Whilst the “Original” version is directly suitable for use on…

Flip the classroom with training videos

Flipping the classroom with video  brings the lecture home, and the homework into class.   Training Videos are revolutionising teaching by delivering lessons to students at their convenience,  allowing educators to the classroom to reinforce learning with practical lessons and tuition, a learning method called “Flipping the Classroom”. This “Flipped Classroom” model of teaching allows trainers to deliver more meaningful and in depth content than would be possible using traditional teaching methods. Video content is at the heart of the flipped classroom. This can take many forms, from a simple video of a lecture, to a full green screen production video, depending on…

Will 2018 be the year of Agile?

As 2018 opens more people are seeing the value of Agile in digital content and video production.     In their New Year’s blogging, Creative Bloq identified “Minimal Viable Product” (MVP)  as the number one trend in digital in 2018. MVP is a set of principles which abandons the “Big Bang”, embraces iterations and lean production, and mirrors our Agile production methods. But when we think of MVP we think of maximum value instead of minimal viable, because MVP is actually the optimal way of producing video. Agile has allowed us to increase the quality of our property videos, as well as reducing turnaround…
