Alongside an annual conference, I also had to develop a website and standalone ‘careers’ focused app as well as promotional videos for 25 heads of governmental profession within the civil service. As you can imagine this was intense pressure on this project and team oversight and motivation was key with a few all nighters needed in order to pull off the project within a 3 month time period.
In terms of filming, I couldn’t bring a big crew, and barely had time in some cases to get them to clap (synchronising the sound) which was stressful but interesting, but content wise we soon found they were all saying the same thing. It then became a job of soliciting interesting answers from them in a time effective manner and being heads of department, they were not used to taking orders! It was key not only to deliver the video but also test it out at the conference.
I was very hands on with the video and the app, and co-ordinating with third parties who were organising the event in order to make it a success. This project was delivered significantly under budget and to time, but was one of the more high pressured jobs we took on.
