Download Festival

Project Overview

We take pride in transforming our client’s core ideas into something truly unique for their online audience. Our highly immediate video style is results orientated and guaranteed to engage your target audience.

Planning

Off the back of our extremely successful Download 2018 video content we were asked to pitch again for 2019. We beat the competition securing a second year working at one of the biggest rock festivals in the world. For this year the scope of work expanded with the brief covering a highlights video, extended after movie, daily social video edits, band interview videos, entertainment videos, safety and sustainability videos.

To bring all these elements together required our project manager to work closely with the client to ensure the deliverables were achievable. To ensure success we assembled our biggest festival team to date with a total of 8 including a project manager, camera operators, sound recordist, onsite editor and interviewer.

Creation

The team arrived on site early to ensure we had time to setup and get everyone in the team up to speed on access in and around the festival site. Roles were assigned with each camera operator focusing on capturing different elements of the festival.

We were communicating with the whole team throughout the weekend ensuring we were on track to capturing everything that was needed for the various videos whilst also reacting to on the spot requests from the client. The festival was a fluid operation with us having to respond to band requests and other unplanned events. Overall the festival was a huge success.

We were editing onsite for social videos and post festival our in-house team set to work creating the various highlight and entertainment videos.

Results

The daily social video edits we produced onsite helped generate buzz for the festival whilst it was taking place. It was also really exciting to see our safety and sustainability videos appear on the main stage big screens. Both the highlights and extended after movie were released later in the year to tie in with tickets going on sale for 2020. Our interview videos that covered a range of topics were well received and generated a lot of talking points amongst fans.
