Right Guard - You Can't Handle The Truth

Tasked with coming up with a way to make footballers sweat, we came up with the idea of putting them on a lie detector and asking them difficult questions! We added an extra element by creating "the box", an antagonistic middle man between the lie detector and the player. It was a fun project and we got to work with 6 Premier League players in Jamie Vardy, Ruben Loftus Cheek, Theo Walcott, Cesar Azpilicueta, Jesse

Lingard and Kyle Walker.

In addition to directing and editing this series, I also utilised my Electronics GCSE (!!) to build the box which was a fun project in itself. It was fun to see the ‘personality’ of the cantankerous box serve as an antagonist to the players.

This campaign won Bronze at the Mediaweek Awards 2018 in “Best use of content (Budget over £250k)”

This video, produced for “Stand Up To Cancer” with production company Flying Object, focused on Emily, a breast cancer survivor, having her body painted by make-up artist Tiffany Hunt to re-build her body confidence and try something new; It’s a powerful story and her strength and positivity is inspiring to listen to

Seeing most of the world go back to something approaching normality, it might feel as if the heat is off in the UK but a second peak of Covid-19 would mean prolonging easing even further. So we made this video to try and encourage people to be selfless for a bit longer and try and stay home if you can.

Working within the charity’s budget, LTHL WPN helped managed the production before handling the editing. Their ability to work near independently allowed the internal team to focus on other business needs. In the end, they produced a quality video that earned wide media traction and 25,000 views.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the senior producer at Flying Object. We’re a small creative agency based in London that does a mix of experiential and consumer B2B videos for typically large-scale projects.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with LTHL WPN.?

One of our clients reached out to us to create a series of videos for their 2019 cancer research charity campaign. Since they were a nonprofit and we had a lot of work at the time, we needed to find a way to provide excellent service while adapting to the smaller budget.

Working with LTHL WPN. allowed us to create a model where we could ensure our client got an excellent video with minimal overhead and fuss.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement? 

LTHL WPN. took on the project, producing one of three videos to promote the cancer charity’s campaign. The videos focused on bringing together social media influencers, media volunteers, cancer research, and those who’d been affected by cancer.

The main story for our video was about a make-up artist who was designing a custom piece of body art for a woman who’d gotten a mastectomy.

LTHL WPN. proved to be a capable unit with a lot of expertise and equipment. As such, they produced the whole video in parallel with us in a cost- and time-effective way. They helped us set up the shoot, ran things on the day of the shoot, and handled the whole post-production process for us.

What is the team composition? 

I worked with Joe (Director & Editor). Besides supporting me during the shoot, he edited the work with my creative input. Once the client and I gave feedback, he incorporated our comments into the final video.

How did you come to work with LTHL WPN.?

I found them on a platform. As a company, we wanted to expand our list of freelancers, so we ended up working with a range of people on that shoot that we hadn’t worked with before. 

How much have you invested with them?

We spent about £3,000– £4,000 (approximately $4,000–$5,300 USD). Keep in mind that this was a reduced rate since our client was a charity.

What is the status of this engagement?

It was a six-week process from August–September 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

Even though it was a small-scale project, the video earned great reach at about 25,000 views. It was featured in a lot of media, and the traction far exceeded my expectations.

How did LTHL WPN. perform from a project management standpoint?

Joe is organized and easy to work with. I felt that I was getting what I needed from the relationship, which was to be able to produce that video despite the aforementioned challenges. Because we didn’t have to hold Joe’s hand throughout the project, I could focus on other areas of my business.

We used Skype extensively to communicate along with Vimeo to review work. Joe was flexible about coming into the office when needed so that I could give him feedback. That was helpful because he would work with me in our editing suites. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

It’s their self-sufficiency. The quality of the work was excellent, and Joe’s presence on set was very calm. He didn’t need massive amounts of oversight. I could focus on my needs on the job while knowing that he had everything he needed to manage the project as a whole.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I don’t think so. We haven’t been able to work with them again due to COVID-19, but our projects wind down this time of year, anyway.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

LTHL WPN. is a capable unit. As long as you’re clear about what you need from that relationship, they will exceed your expectations.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the co-founder and head of production at HAM Films. We’re a science communication platform. My background is in scientific research, and we started the company to make science communication content with academics. We’ve since branched out into making branded content as well.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with LTHL WPN.?

We had a fairly sizeable production job with a big international client. We needed preproduction, production, and postproduction help because it was an ambitious job we had to do.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We brought Joe (Director & Editor) on to help on our shoot day as an assistant producer for this big project. He was so good that he ended up helping as director of photography. Overall, he helped direct and produce the film. Then, he was invaluable during post-production.

Now, we work with him on most projects we’re doing at the moment. Joe has acted as an editor as well as has done sound design and the grade on films. He’s someone we talk to when we need problem-solving. He has skills as a fixer. In addition to his specific skills within a production team, he’s savvy.

What is the team composition?

Joe is our only point of contact.

How did you come to work with LTHL WPN.?

My business partner had previously worked with Joe and knew he had a very capable pair of hands.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve invested about £5,000 (approximately $6,500 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

Our ongoing engagement started in June 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

I can’t speak highly enough of Joe and the work he does. The quality of the work is great. Not to mention, the turnaround times are excellent. Recently, we sent something to Joe to help with the sounding grade, and he got it back to us within 12 hours. That’s just one example of the great work he does.

How did LTHL WPN. perform from a project management standpoint?

Joe’s better at managing the project than I am. We communicate through phone calls and emails. Also, he’s located not too far from us so it’s easy to meet in person.

What did you find most impressive about them?

It’s the speed, quality, and lack of stress that comes from working with LTHL WPN.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, nothing comes to mind.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They produced a two-minute explainer video. They wrote a roll call of what we’d do in a day and edited it all down. We put together a script, arranged voiceovers, and they filmed it. They handled everything from pre-production through post-production.

How did LTHL WPN. perform from a project management standpoint?

They were extremely good at managing the project. They were very thorough. They delivered on time and within our budget. They were always available and easy to talk to. We used email, calls, Slack, and WhatsApp to communicate.

Their cost and ability to deliver our vision all the way through were impressive. They were able to drive our idea and remind me of what we were trying to achieve. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, nothing stands out and I’m looking forward to working with them again. 

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Use them as a bounce board for ideas because they’re good at it and enjoy the creative side of things. It’s important to let them have a bit of creative freedom.
