A slideshow featuring photography by Howard Jackson of Open Door Multimedia – people, buildings, animals and some shots that are…… well a bit self indulgent and “arty”!
A film made recently for Mr. Peter Brownson, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon and Managing Partner at the Bone and Joint Centre, Spire Liverpool Hospital. It provides an intimate and at times moving account of why Peter chose a career in Orthopaedic Surgery and describes some of his achievements including his pioneering work in the field of keyhole surgery.
This film features Nicola Hesdon – Head of Family Law
at Quality Solicitors Keith Park in St.Helens. It is one
of 20 films commissioned in December, 2014. The aim
of this suite of films was to provide information about
the range of services available from QSKP and to show
that the departmental heads are approachable and caring
in addition to being experts in their own fields.
Hot off the press a video produced for Benchmark Plastic and
Metal Services in Skelmersdale. Very much a start to finish
description of the process of making plastic products via a
vacuum moulding process.
One of two projects about nursery and after school services produced for Neil and Ginny Taylor of Wind in the Willows Childcare based in Newton le Willows, Merseyside. This film features After School provision which took me back to the days when I used to organise children’s playschemes for a living.
One of my favourite projects, which was part of a suite of films I produced for Wigan Council Careers Service about job opportunities for young people. This one features BD2 which is a digital design company which has some huge national and international names in its portfolio. It was especially good because BD2’s offices were modern and quite swish so I managed to find 5 different sets within the same couple of rooms.
Filming and photographing for the Holywell Care Group based in Preston was like going home to an earlier part of my career when I was a manager in Social Services. I had a similar experience working with Options in Liverpool and it was a great opportunity to meet people who use the services and the staff who support them. Also great to work with brand consultant Tony Lythgoe who introduced me to the company.
This project was produced for the Deafness Resource Centre in St.Helens on behalf of St.Helens and Knowsley Training Hospitals NHS Trust. Itwas a great learning
experience because it is quite a complex video with footage, audio, signing/ interpreting and sub titles. And just as a day is a long time in politics, a second is a long time in a multi media training video when matching up needs to be done.
A film produced for the Nuclear Institute Young Generation Network. The film features a conference held at Aintree Race Course in November, 2013.
The launch of the Cameron Foster Foundation at the Imperial War Museum, Salford Quays in September, 2013. A great venue for filming – posh frocks, beautiful women
and a really good cause.
A video testimonial produced recently for nxo – a business growth consultancy based in Preston. This project features Ian Watson, Director of Neurocare Physiotherapy talking about nxoBizsource which is a programme specifically designed for smaller businesses based in Lancashire who have an ambition to grow.
And yet another film featuring a service for children. This time it is Nikki Geddes’ Kiddy Cooks project. She delivers healthy cooking/ healthy eating sessions to
nurseries around the North West – Cheshire, Lancashire and Merseyside – great fun to film and the children loved the session.
A promotional video for the Sefton Suite, a private hospital attached to Aintree University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust in Liverpool. The subject? An excellent new procedure for the treatment of an enlarged Prostate – Prostate Artery Embolisation.
A film about Safety on the Water – produced for Welsh Water (Dwr Cymru) at Llyn Brenig, near Denbigh in North Wales in September, 2013. This film was also produced in Welsh.
They say never work with children or animals. Well in the Summer of 2015 I worked with both and really enjoyed it. This promotional video was produced for Rutland House Veterinary Hospital’s hydrotherapy service at Freckleton Aquazone in St.Helens, Merseyside. A hi-tech way of treating animals (mainly dogs, but occasionally cats) after spinal and leg operations and for arthritis and obesity. A great example of an explanatory/ informative video that shows a treatment or process.
The second of two projects for Wind in the Willows Childcare – this time featuring the “babies”. I had a really nice time moving round the nurseries but it seemed like every second child was full of cold. I was like a lamb to the slaughter and after the second day of filming I came down with an absolute stinker of a cold!
A film produced for the Versatile Lift Company of St.Helens. This film has attracted a huge amount of attention on You Tube – alongside another project filmed on the same day the total number of views on You Tube is approx. 20,000.
This film was produced by Open Door Multimedia and supplied to the British Horse Logging Charitable Trust (Patron Prince of Wales). It features a conversation with Dan Sumner – a 44 year old Horse Logging Apprentice.
More photography – this time a slideshow of photographs which I took on a 4 day birthday present trip to Barcelona (thanks Kids). A great city – lots to see, lots to do, lots to photograph.
My favourite Salmon fishing film which I shot on the Newtyle Beat of the River Tay, near Birnam in Perthshire, Scotland. The film features 6 anglers including myself in a beautiful part of the world doing what we love.There is a big interest in Salmon fishing videos on You Tube and this project has currently had in excess of 12,000 views making it one of my most watched films.
A film made in the summer of 2015 for Stephen McShane of Movemaster Removals, a removal company based in Liverpool with domestic and commercial clients and offering all the services you need to take the stress out of moving house or office
– packing materials, packing service, assembly/ dis-assembly of furniture, safe and secure local storage, both short and long term.
No way it’s a cake – a film produced for Colin Atkins of Leyland who does amazing cake decorations. When I say he decorates cakes, that doesn’t really cover it because his cakes are fantastic. This project includes a time-lapse section featuring Colin completing a cake and then it moves into a section where he is talking, before it moves back to the voice over which includes a call to action and leads into the contact details etc.. But it is the “talky” bit that I want to showcase because that is an area that I started in and one that I would like to get into more.
This video features Professor Andrew Sherry and at the time he was Director of the Dalton Institute at the University of Manchester. Filming was done at the Nuclear Institute Young Generation Network’s 2014 Annual Conference at Carlisle Race Course. In addition to the main film featuring the conference I filmed conversations with seven people from the nuclear industry and they provide an interesting, informative and very optimistic backdrop for anyone considering a career in the nuclear industry.
In August, 2015 I was asked to film the testing to destruction of a prototype hospital bed for the Anti-Ligature-Shop Ltd. which is based in Widnes. The Anti-Ligature-Shop is a field leader in the design, construction and supply of products which are ideal for use in psychiatric wards, hospitals, mental health centres, care homes and prisons. The aim of these products is to assist in protecting all aspects of a room which might put a person at risk. Representatives of Merseycare NHS Trust were present as observers at the destruction testing and two members of staff also wielded the pick axe handle!
