The hectic August has flowed into September with more filming work at Sovereign Insurance involving ambulance chasing plus the continuation of filming for the long short film The Dinner Party.
Digital Productions were filming Dr Tom and his custom Ambulance in and around Sovereign Insurance. Presenter, Emergency Department doctor, Health Guru and Author Dr Tom Mulholland was at the recent Sovereign Insurance conference and the video filmed was to be edited for online distribution via the Sovereign intranet to reinforce his messages.

This month also sees the next location for the long short movie, The Dinner Party, which is actually planned to be released as an online video, with filming of the dining room scenes at Toto’s Restaurant in Nelson Street. The two day shoot saw the entire cast featured for a keystone shot and filming is set to continue later this month. The video production running time is estimated at 40 minutes so is a bit longer than the average short film!
A production website is due to be launched in late September with production photos uploaded including some slightly disturbing shots of Jono Kenyon with a blood covered Bruce Hopkins.
The last month has been pretty hectic for our video production crew with several jobs on the go including a full day of filming in Auckland for Sovereign Insurance on the same day as having to video a full day seminar in Wellington for Pharmac – plus the commencement of filming of a long short film!
A full days filming for Pharmac covered 7 different presentation topics complete with Powerpoint slides. The material was a very popular topic for the Pharmac Seminars and so to allow the persons who were unable to attend to still benefit from the presentations we were brought in to video the event. After filming, the material was quickly edited, slides inserted and the completed video uploaded onto our dropbox for the client to upload for distribution.
A key requirement with presentation videos is to ensure the material is engaging for a online video viewer. As a tendered supplier to Pharmac, the team at Digital Productions are recognised as being able to provide the filming and editing skill set to ensure a quality final production is always delivered.
With Sovereign Insurance, this recent project was to cover off their financial year end achievements with a series of internal interviews and shout outs from different department heads and staff. Everyone in the video told of a personal highlight and these interviews were edited together with a time lapse to provide a summary of the organisations achievements.
The final video edit was played both on their internal big screen and distributed by intranet.
August also saw the commencement of filming for the creative and documentary division of Digital Productions – Meat and Three Veg Productions. On August 23rd filming commenced for the long short film – The Dinner Party. Written by Anthony Hurst the film is also his film Directing debut and cast includes “Step Dave’s” Jono Kenyon, Emily Keddell as the lead and Bruce Hopkins as want-to-be celebrity chef Charles Barley.
These first scenes were filmed in the kitchens of Two Feijoas in Silverdale and it turned out to be a fantastic set.
Set in a boutique restaurant, this comical macabre drama is set to be completed in November 2014.
