North Brewing Springwell

New brewery for north brewing

Founded in 2015, North Brewing has seen huge growth. To document the development of Springwell brewery was a key part of their marketing strategy and with our timelapse knowledge and expertise Big Blue Whale delivered engaging video content.


At the start of 2020 North Brewing were putting their plan of converting an old industrial unit to their brand new headquarters into action. An ambitious project that that would house their brewery, onsite canning facility, tap room and offices all under one roof.


With Big Blue Whale’s knowledge of timelapse techniques we were contacted to help document the construction process, from neglected industrial unit to flagship brewery. After an initial consultatoin it was agreed we would use a number of different techniques including long term timelapse cameras, hyperlapse, drones and more traditional film techniques with the end result being 3 marketing videos.


18 months in the making this has been our longest running project to date. The first step was to install the long term timelapse camera that would act as the master shot for renovation. In addition, we would film onsite at key stages of the build, an example being the installation of the brewing tanks.


This allowed us to build up a large library of footage that formed the basis of each of the marketing videos. The brief required us to edit a main video that documents the build followed by a highlight reel of the completed brewery, tap room, canning facility and offices. We also created 2 shorter social videos highlighting the build and tap room.


Having worked very closely with the team at North Brewing  over a 2 year period everybody involved was over the moon with the end results. The beautiful shots and angles that make up the videos reflects the team effort that was required to complete this project.


The social videos have have helped create a real buzz and interest on social platforms with people from all over getting excited to visit the new space. The tap room has become the destination for a drink at the weekend and the atmosphere associated with the brewery is reflected in the videos.


“The team at Big Blue Whale have been great to work with having helped us document our expansion by identifying key areas we needed capturing and finding innovative ways to do this. We have had to carefully control costs and set strict budgets and they have been very supportive in helping us get the result we wanted all within budget.”
