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.
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!
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!
