Lights, Cameras… Safety!

March, 2015

Hawkins Construction wanted Manu Media’s help producing a video for their website. Hard-hats, hi-viz, and the scorching summer sun couldn’t stop Charlotte getting out and interviewing people. Notice that two cameras are being used. This allows us to get a variety of shots from the one interview, which keeps the video interesting. It also saves Hawkins time and money, as we get all the footage we need in the one interview, and don’t need people to repeat themselves while we get a close up shot. See what we mean when we upload the video soon.
