NUSU asked us to attend most of the events that they held over the academic year and create a montage video out of the footage.

Here we were asked to produce a tongue in cheek tour of their newly refurbished student union building and the facilities on offer to new students. NUSU didn’t want anything too wacky or anything too formal either, they were pleased with out approach of having a tour guide who took himself more seriously than anyone else did.

NUSU used our video to launch their brand new website, as part of their existing social media campaigns and to encourage potential students to apply to Newcastle University.

 

NUSU also requested we document the annual sports event The Stan Calvert Cup. Newcastle and Northumbria Universities do battle over the coveted cup every year. Here is the video we produced.

“Nimbus were a pleasure to work with from start to finish. They showed a lot of flexibility in getting to offsite shooting locations at short notice, just to capture a particular moment we needed. From initial ideas to the final product, Nimbus were enthusiastic, inventive and always striving to deliver a quality product. We would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for video services.”

The Importance of Subtlety in Video Production

On 07, Jan 2014 | In Our Blog | By admin

Avoid the hard sell

Avoid the hard sell

 Video has the benefit of having not only the video element but also the use of music,  voice over and text to convey your message. The secret is to use the right mix of these  elements. Without the right mix your viewers will feel like they are being given the hard  sell, they won’t convert into a subscriber or website visit and your brand will suffer, the  exact opposite of what video is supposed to do for your business.

 It is very easy in video production to look to the voice over or on screen text to convey all  the information; using the visual element only to re-enforce what the viewer is being told.  When doing this it is easy to forget the subtle nuances of the visual such as the use of  colour, framing and camera movement as well neglecting a story element. A story  element, no matter how subtle, will often subconsciously keep the viewer watching; they want to know how this story ends whether they realise it or not.

Bombarding the viewer with information can actually detract from the message you want to get across. For example you don’t have to shout “WE ARE FRIENDLY AND HAVE GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE” when instead you can just show a customer being welcomed by one of your staff. Simplicity is often the key, instead of telling the viewer your company is friendly you demonstrate the point. They don’t feel like they have been TOLD a message when in actual fact they received the exact message you wanted to deliver.

 

Using subtlety to deliver the correct message in video can be tricky, it is an art. The wrong mix of hard sell, incorrect use of humour or music and bad pace of editing can make for a terrible video and poor ROI.

 

However, when done correctly, video is an incredibly powerful tool.

Glen Roughead Swing promotional video

On 13, Sep 2013 | In Event Video Production | By admin

We were asked by swing singer Glen Roughead to produce a promotional video at one of his shows at the Live Theatre in Newcastle which both demonstrated both the quiet soulful side of his performances and also the energetic side and his ability to get a venue jumping.

“I have worked with Nimbus Productions now on a number of occasions (and have them booked for future events) they have always delivered exactly what I wanted. Their laid back style has helped me feel at ease when conveying my ideas and their input have taken all my projects to the next level. Always very efficient in getting back to you straight away and always gone that extra mile for me to really make what I’m trying to achieve a fantastic product. I would have no hesitate in recommending them to anyone.”
