Frasershot Photography launched its internal video services in 2011 and has since then been commissioned to produce many video projects for various clients. Frasershot Photography works very closely with design agency Deep Red Creative who facilitate design and marketing for Riley's Sports Bars with whom we have been working with for a couple of years now in the supply of Photography.
The project was to supply a promo as an internet video showing the club and its facilities. The brief was to follow 4 lads in the club shooting some pool, playing darts and generally drinking and talking sport etc etc. Filmed on the day of the Champions League game Chelsea v Barcelona to pick up the crowd shots at the end of the day, amazingly Chelsea knocked out the mighty Barcelona and gave us some great footage during the game!
We headed down to Victoria for the shoot with the 4 lads and a stills crew along with film and sound crew to produce the footage. All the footage was shot on the 5d to help with the reportage style needed for the right feel of the footage. We used the 50mm 1.2 lens to help in the low light especially as the day went on and we lost the natural light.
The project involved producing around 8 videos in total picking up on all the various sports including soundbites relating to all this years major sporting events from the Champions League to the Olympics. The video above is the more generic version summarizing what you can expect from the club. For good measure see below for behind the scenes image of the crew and models starting the filming early doors all being directed by our very talented Glyn Allen with Gareth on clapper board duty. Big respect to our acting team for the day, Ali Mac, Matt Sharp, Tom Smithson and John Storer, great job lads!! must have been tough drinking all day and playing and watching sport and being paid for it!!!
