Creative agency for the media & music market
With such a wide range of talent available to work with, it was essential that our team were fully briefed on the days events and event plans. Our production team met with the London Irish Centre's CD Gary Dunne to ensure to storyboard the content ahead of the shoot. Our talent shot list included Sadiq Khan, Ed Sheeran, Dermot O' Leary, Sara Cox, Annie Mac and Dara O' Brien. We covered talking heads as well as cinematic wide angles of the performances and speeches. We wanted to be up close and personal with the talent to maximise the emotion throughout interviews.
With a string of hits and a debut album release just around the corner - Tom Grennan was tipped as one of the years biggest artists. The Telegraph’s bespoke events platform commissioned the Paradise London content team to direct, shoot and produce a range of content to cover his performance at the ever cliquey Scotch of St. James. “Our aim was to capture a powerhouse performance whilst retaining the intimacy of the venue and the audience” claims Head of Video Nicky Cook.
“We set dressed the stage area specifically for 4 camera’s to ensure we had 4 ‘magic’ angles whilst being able to hide our rig into the background to not take away from the performance” adds PLDN Creative Director Nick Jekyll. “We captured all live multi-track audio and mixed and mastered the live tracks to sit in the production.”
All content was streamed and showcased live as a flagship piece on the Telegraph’s Culture website and across various social channels.
Paradise London were appointed production agency to film, direct & produce Michael's intimate performance, live from the Arts Club.
Our creative team project managed the shoot from start to finish. Our interiors team built the set against the mood-lit bar of Jack Solomons with modern beams and floor lighting to set the tone. Our brand team partnered with Gibson UK for the guitar rig, recorded the entire live performance and mixed the record post-shoot. The PLDN production team shot the video in one take with a multi-cam setup in 3 hours.
Since the release the video has helped to support over 120,000 streams on Spotify, a sync partnership for the band with W Songs and a sold out showcase for the band’s first London performance. Jack Solomon’s featured the video as their lead creative online at jacksolomons.com stating that the content showcased the venue it’s best possible light.
