| Dop-Up Shop May 2019
Doppler Effect is a tech start up in Bristol. They aim to bring creators together from all walks of life to inspire each other and facilitate a space where people can make a living doing what they love!
This video was one of the hardest I have created for Patos Productions because I fell ill in the middle of production. I had to learn a whole new set of skills - managing a project from afar. I had always employed freelancers to film and edit, but I usually closely supervised them and we would meet in person to ensure everyone was on the same page. Ultimately I had to trust that they could understand my vision for the film through our Skype calls and, I hope you'll agree, the result was great!
Unfortunately there was another large learning curve with this project... Start-ups move extremely fast. By the time the video was completed (2 month production time due to my illness) the business had moved on to a different creative branding which the video no longer fitted. I had to work with the client to adapt the video and brainstorm different areas which it could be used as part of their marketing. In the end it became a promo for the event 'Dop-up' which Doppler put on in May 2019, and Patos Productions created a simple interview video to fill the original role wanted which matched their new branding more effectively, still coming in below the original budget set out by their CEO.
