Community Festival

Bringing Festivals to Life

Experience the ultimate after-movie of a one-day music festival showcasing the hottest new acts in the heart of Finsbury Park, London. Our team has had the pleasure of working alongside Community Festival for several years, creating all of their video content, including announcement and highlight videos.

2019 – Camcorders & the retro look

Festival Republic entrusted Big Blue Whale with the task of creating the Community Festival 2019 Aftermovie. As the producers of every Community video since its inception, this project holds a special place in our hearts. To complement the vintage aesthetic we established in the Community 2019 announcement video, we incorporated Mini DV camcorders to achieve a truly authentic retro appearance in addition to our modern cameras.

Editing the aftermovie was a breeze without the need for complex camera moves and transitions. We pieced together the footage and applied various retro looks, resulting in a film that perfectly captures the essence of youth and summer.

2018 -More sun & more fun

Every year at Community Festival, we have the pleasure of capturing the excitement and energy of the event on camera. With two stages, we have the freedom to move around and capture every aspect of the festival, from the performances to the lively crowd. As a festival aimed at a younger audience, we prioritize capturing the fun and carefree summer vibe through our shots, including stunning aerial footage.

In post-production, we carefully crafted a seamless flow between shots to fully immerse viewers. As the aftermovie is released alongside the lineup announcement, it’s crucial that it generates interest and excitement for next year’s event. Our goal is to create a film that inspires viewers to want to be a part of the fun and make memories of their own.

2017 – Summer fun & London parks

Our inaugural Community festival experience was an exciting one, as it was an opportunity to capture the youthful energy and vibrant spirit of the event. With a relatively small site, we were able to easily navigate and capture the magical moments that make this festival so special.

Over the years, we have consistently honed and refined the look and feel of the Community films, but always maintained a consistent approach to filming and editing. This is the value that we offer as experienced event filmmakers with over 15 years in the industry. When you work with us, you can trust that you are getting a team with the skills, knowledge, and experience to deliver exceptional results.
