RADS 2014 – THE SHOWREEL

The RAD Awards have been and gone once again. We were delighted to provide video content for the event for a second year running. Tasked with producing the opening video, the nominees’ showreel, intro stings for all 18 awards, coverage of the shortlist party and the main event, vox pops with the winners, and promotional videos for some of the sponsors we had our work cut out!

But the blood, sweat, and tears were all worthwhile once the awards do got underway. We were proud to see our work on the big screen and had a fantastic night – Guy even got to have dinner backstage with the voice of X Factor Peter Dickson (he doesn’t always speak like that). Thanks to Pete, Angela, and the team for pulling off another fabulous event!

Check out the nominees’ showreel. Witness the bone-crunching brutality of the talented April Hughes. She enjoyed beating the Casual boys to a pulp a little too much. Rich is still having nightmares…

"Don’t worry, I’ve got this" - Simon Berry The guy throwing himself from the top of a building with a blatant disregard for health and safety? That’s Simon, director of both this opening video and the showreel. With the immortal words "Don’t worry, I’ve got this" echoing in the ears of the rest of the crew, Simon came out of stuntman retirement for one last gig…

When RBI asked us to promote their 8 jobsites in an unexpected and entertaining way, there was really only one possible solution - we’d make a video about an octopus... Kudos to George (animation) and Guy (sound design) for bringing this bizarre idea to life!
