Making of Reliable Witness

This video gives some insight into the ‘making of’ the reliable witness project for Birmingham Book Festival in 2012. We produced concept, development and software for the installation, as well as branding, website and printed material for the event.


Tech Showcase at Fazeley Studios

For the start of the 2011 Media Circus we ran a 2 day event at Fazeley Studios to showcase the latest digital screen and project technology. Here’s a few pictures from the event.

For the event we themed the Ikon conference space at Fazeley Studios with blue directional lighting, an audio soundscape, smoke/atmosphere machine and placed a selection of tech within the space. This included a 6 metre planitarium called the Dreamdome, amazing short throw projectors, an 85inch iTab, 3D, augmented reality and an interactive floor.

The opening night launch was well attended by approximately 200 people where there was plenty of interesting stuff on show. From this point on we’re now working with a selection of other agencies, universities and colleges to produce exciting concepts and content to display at the second part of the showcase in the autumn.

Media Circus

This short video was filmed at Fazeley Studio’s Media Circus event in 2010, run by Adhere and Karl Binder. The Media Circus was an awards event for Birmingham’s creative industries, the culmination of our ‘Invisible City’ project where we invited people to nominate and vote online for the favourite creative events, projects, businesses and individuals.

Thanks to Adrian Burrows, Birmingham Hippodrome, Fazeley Studios, Birmingham Town Hall, Toye, Kenning and Spencer, Lorraine Francis, Liz Green, Sam Slater, Plumerella, PCL Digital, Media Dog and everyone else who supported this project and made it possible.

Below is the short promo video released a month before the event…


My Dad’s on Twitter (but he doesn’t know why)

We organised and ran this social media debating event as part of Fazeley Digital at Fazeley Studios. This brought together people working in Birmingham interested in making the most of social media tools and we discussed via a four person expert panel and a large ‘wall’ to write onto, the pros and cons of social media as a business tool. The event was filmed and streamed live on the internet as well as a Twitter fall screen provided people with a forum to interact directly with the event event if they were not in attendance.
