Womenfolk : A celebration of female design entrepreneurs in Northern Ireland


It was an absolute pleasure to film the Womenfolk event in Belfast. Joined by Siofra Caherty of Jump The Hedges, Elizabeth Meehan of coffeenosugar, Katherine McDonald of Katherine McDonald Illustration, Patricia McGinnis of Maven, Gillian Heron of Pink Inc. and Lisa Duddington of Keep It Usable. The event was hosted by Christine James, director of Blick Shared Studios. Womenfolk is a project by Blick Shared Studios and supported by Creativity NI.

To support the event, Explosivo created this video Pro Bono.

Forget the App, there's a Pocket Notebooks (video) for that!

It's no secret that we're huge fans of the analog world, and we recently had the distinct pleasure of working with Stuart over at Pocket Notebooks on the first of hopefully many video collaborations.

Stuart wanted to create short, concise videos that outline the main features of each of the notebooks he has on the site. We created 12 one minute long videos that highlight all the specs of each unique notebook.

Working in the studio is always a pleasure (significantly lower chance of rain) but working in the studio with a big old box of notebooks feels a whole lot like not working at all!

To maintain parity between all the brands and notebook types (we can't play favourites) we created a production line setups to hotswap different notebooks while retaining the same shot. Batching the shots also allowed us to significantly reduce the cost per shot of the videos and deliver this fine looking project on time and in budget.

You should absolutely check out the Pocket Notebooks site and subscribe to them on Youtube  and check out the first video on the Write Pocket Notebook below:

For Sale! - Property Video Tours using OSMO Gimbal

Buying a house isn't easy, and when they only list one or two fuzzy pictures it's really hard to get an idea of what a property is like without visiting it first. 

We asked ourselves, what if you could take a walk around a property, while you're still sipping tea in bed with your feet up?

So we made a gimbal stabilised video tour of a house for sale in Bangor! Now you can digitally walk from room to room, see how the hallways and doors link up and get an idea of what your future home might feel like.

A video tour like this takes less than 30 minutes to design and shoot on site, and only costs between £50 - £100 depending on size, location and layout. 

If you're selling a property and want to upgrade your marketing materials, or even just want a tour of your shop or business, send us an email today and we'll get back with a quotation.
