Bertie the Budgie – Short Film Production

Our video production team were itching for an opportunity to showcase their film-making skills and good old Branson presented us with one in the guise of the Virgin Media Shorts Competition.

The Brief

Two minutes and twenty seconds to create an original drama on any subject matter. Nice and vague, just how we like it! Our team approached this like any other creative video production project, researching, discussing, sketching and adapting a range of stories and ideas.

Stopping only when we hit upon a story that had us flowing with ideas and filled with excitement. Believe it or not it was actually based on a true story!

“As film-makers we’re always looking for opportunities to flex our creative muscles, refine our skills and produce short films, music videos and experiemental concepts.”

Results

Out of thousands of entries our film was shortlisted and reached the final 50 in the competition. Sadly our film didn’t make it through to the final 10 but we’re all still incredibly proud of what we produced on a budget just shy of £1000 all filmed on location in a small house in Hackney in nine hours. It’s amazing what you can do when you put your minds to it!

“As film-makers we're always looking for opportunities to flex our creative muscles, refine our skills and produce short films, music videos and experimental concepts. We're a creative bunch and we like to think our commercial work reflects this but there's nothing we like more than a blank canvas, to share ideas and create something that is our vision and 100% undiluted! Virgin Media Shorts gave us the perfect opportunity to do just this.”
