Hub Awards 2012 Filming

The business community in Cornwall is a thriving one which is evident from the fantastic array of talent on show at this year’s Hub Awards 2012.  The 5th annual event took place at the Atlantic Hotel in Newquay where 5 awards were up for grabs on the night, including: Best New Business, Best Online Strategy, Entrepreneur of the Year, Employee of the Year and Hub Contributor of the Year.


We were again commissioned to film the awards ceremony and the general atmosphere of the night.  Tom from Paramore Productions helped out to make sure everything was covered.  We produced an Intro film with an Olympics theme that was projected onto a 100″ screen.  The film seemed to go down well with rapturous applause and laughter.  Later in the evening Great Britain Para-athlete, Melissa Reid, delivered a great inspirational talk which had many parallels with Cornish Business – thoughts like going with your gut instinct come to mind.  We filmed low-light GV on Canon 550D’s handheld with 50mm 1.8’s and recorded the awards ceremony on a Sony VG20 from the back of the room.  We also setup a softbox light kit for the interview area which looks pretty nice I’m my opinion.  See for yourself…

Congratulations to Cake Top Characters for winning Best New Business, Cassie Lawrence for winning Entrepreneur of the Year, Watergate Bay Hotel/Fifteen Cornwall for winning Best Online Strategy, Hannah Jewell for winning Employee of the Year and Mark Smith for winning Hub Contributor of the Year.



Filming @ Cornwall Business Show

It’s been a hectic couple of days covering the Cornwall Business Show 2012 at Kingsley Village for LESW (Live Events South West).  Not only were there over 50 exhibitors to film & interview but also 8 seminars running simultaneously with an evening networking event to top it all off!


My colleague Tom From Paramore Productions was on hand to assist with the production where we shot on 3 cameras using Glidetracks, Jib Arms & Steadicam.  We met some great new businesses and chatted with many old friends.  Looking forward to getting stuck into the edit which will be online in the next 3 weeks.
