Heathrow Airport case studies


Heathrow Airport is the world's busiest hub airport .

Video Production and Time-lapse

Brief:
To put on a live video event for around 1500 people airside at Heathrow in the vast north basement construction site, and where PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) and airside passes were required, to celebrate the "topping out" of Terminal 2B.
Our Solution:
To create two programmes from material we shot over the preceding year to provide a celebratory programme to communicate praise to the workforce and thanks for a project well done. To also highlight the great diversity and scale of the work by developing a time-lapse programme drawing from seven time-lapse cameras we installed on site in the year leading up to the event. 

Our Client's Response:

“Well done on a wonderful event this morning to celebrate. It was very well organised, planned and executed. The videos were especially good and the ad hoc cheering was a bonus to put a smile on the faces of everyone there. Please convey my thanks to everyone who put so much hard work in to it. They should be very proud of the outcome and I am sure the feel good glow in the workforce will last for a long time.”

Scripted actor-based production

Brief:
To create an informative, yet engaging induction programme for new starters at Heathrow Airport’s main office building: the Compass Centre.
We were asked to come up with ideas that were different to the norm.
Our Solution:
To write a fully scripted narrative, with actors playing the role of the new starter and manager. We shot this in an innovative way, using steadicam and a fly on the wall approach. We deliberately did not include statistics and figures to complicate the message, rather we let the actors tell the story in an informal and relaxed manner, which made the content much more engaging and digestible for the audience.

Our Client's Response:

“…both parties confirmed the content of the DVD is excellent… I have…review[ed] the DVD, of which I am fully satisfied with the quality and product.”
