Video Marketing Campaign for DFDS

Posted July 9, 2020 No Comments

We’ve been working with DFDS UK to make video marketing content for their Rediscover Freedom campaign. In July they started to welcome passengers back on their ferries as the borders have now been eased post the coronavirus lockdown. How to keep video marketing during COVID-19 lockdown?

Whilst remaining PPE compliant our video production team set sail from Dover to Dunkirk to film their new on board safety measures. We used our Canon camera on our DJI Ronin gimbal to get ultra smooth shots which was much needed on a rocky ship!

We edited the content with a tight turnaround ready for the videos to hit their social media channels. The campaign was designed to spread the word on safer travel so their passengers can feel at ease onboard. DFDS provided us with instructional captions which communicated their post COVID-19 offering and new operations. These highlighted a complimentary meal voucher for every passenger, enhanced cleaning, fully PPE compliant crew members and their luxurious Premium lounges to relax and unwind.

Drone filming at Luton Airport in Covid-19 Lockdown

Posted May 14, 2020 No Comments

With the reduced number of aircraft landing and taking off due to COVID-19 we had a rare opportunity to fly our drone with our PfCO (Permission for Commercial Operations) and do some filming in between aircraft movements around the stands and the runway.

We’ve filmed at Luton Airport a few times over the past 3 years and it was very eerie to see all the aircraft grounded. You can almost hear a pin drop.

A big thank you to AIRDAT and Luton Airport’s air traffic control and airside operations for making this possible! We made another video about the recent national lockdown.

The Time We Stopped | Positivity within the Coronavirus

Posted May 1, 2020 No Comments

The current coronavirus lockdown situation can seem a bit scary – but it’s up to us to make the most of it and take as much positivity from it that we can. We even managed to visit an empty Luton airport!

Over the past few weeks, we have seen communities come together whilst individuals have kept their distance. We are all in this together and together we will get through it. This short video showcases the effect Coronavirus is having on the day to day lives of individuals and families living through the COVID-19 lockdown in England. In this video we see NHS workers, homeowners, children and key workers helping to keep our economy going.

We produced this with a fast turnaround of one week so we could post it on our social media whilst it was still current. It’s been well received on facebook with 4 thousand people reached. This is like what we achieved for DFDS!

Check out what you should be doing to maximise your video marketing efforts during lockdown.

DFDS Flashmob

Posted April 8, 2020 No Comments

DFDS Seaways asked us to hop aboard and film a choir that was scheduled to do some shows over in Berlin, and would be performing a flash mob for the onboard guests. 

Once on board, we made our way to the lounge to set up the cameras. Making use of both our extreme zoom lens, and Ronin gimbal steadicam, as well as two GoPro’s to ensure maximum coverage of the lounge for when the performance began, to ensure we captured the guests’ surprise when the choir started singing. 

However, this was a rough day weather wise. The ship was already rocking when we were docked in Dover, so filming with a precision zoom lens was going to be difficult. Thankfully we had our gimbal to balance out any rocking motion, and the choir did a spectacular job regardless of the motion. After a few falls we were back on track and the choir performed a variety of pop songs, and some well known Christmas classics, everyone on board seemed to have a great time, and it allowed everyone to forget about the rocky crossing. 

Being event videographers we captured this event exceptionally well. If you want your event filmed get in touch with us on our contact page where we will be happy to answer any questions. This was great for social live streaming!

Social Media Video Live Stream Tests

Posted April 3, 2020 No Comments

At the minute we’re all in lockdown due to the Covid-19 outbreak. Because of this, all 3 of us are confined to home, so I decided to use this time to perfect our live streaming capabilities. Given I had the office to myself, I had plenty of room to set it all up. Using 2 of our cameras, our H6 Zoom, and a whole lot of wires, I managed to get a pretty decent stream lasting for four and a half hours. Pretty useful if Max or Mark wanted to check in to make sure I was actually working. Thankfully we invested in some camera batteries we could connect to a plug socket, so the need to keep swapping and charging batteries wasn’t an issue, and again, being the only one in the office, I had all the internet power for myself, so no dip in stream quality thankfully. The next step would be getting down to a more refined process, so we don’t need so many wires, but given this works fine, keep an eye out for Modus Live streams in the future! 

Our Turner Prize Live Stream was a success!

Our video projects in 2019 Our best year so far…

Posted January 6, 2020 No Comments

Over the course of 2019, we were lucky enough to be involved in a variety of projects that took us all over. We started new relationships with new clients, and expanded our opportunities with those we had worked with for some time now.

We jetted off to Munich on behalf of Turner Contemporary, and trekked all the way to Newcastle to work with DFDS Seaways, and Manchester with Britain’s walking charity The Ramblers. 2019 saw a brilliant year for the art in Kent, between Ashford’s Create festival, to Tunbridge Well’s Puppetry Festival, to the Turner Prize being awarded in the Turner Contemporary, Modus has been at the heart of it all. From effigies created by award winning artist Oscar Murillo, to the talented LED Drummers performing at the McArthur Glen’s Designer Outlet, Ashford. 2019 has been a fantastic year of creativity for Modus and our partners, and we’re so excited to see where 2020 takes us.

We’ve had the chance to work on bigger, more exciting video projects, and really got stuck in with a load of Ashford based projects, which was great to be at the forefront to the big changes in our home town.

Let’s hope our video production company will do well for 2020! You can check out our wedding material here.
