Our very own Director/Writer Ros Gihan-Wiliams met with actors Julia Florimo and Mark Hayden at the British Urban Film Festival (BUFF) for the screening of Leap.
BUFF was established in 2005 and initially was formed to showcase urban independent cinema activity in the UK. Over the years the festival has gained momentum and is now supported by a board of actors, journalists, film critics and filmmakers.
BUFF Founder and Director, Emmanuel Anyiam-Osigwe, describes the festival as “A great shop window for filmmakers to showcase their talent and their personalities as producers and directors. It’s a great opening also for actors, actresses, cinematographers, writers, musicians and other key crew to showcase their talents and personalities to an appreciative audience”.
BUFF 2015 was supported by Channel 4 and London Live. The 6 day event featured 27 screenings and 4 UK Premieres.
We were proud to be part of it!!!
With the never-ending launch of high-end handsets the video boom is well underway.
By 2018, apparently up to 80 – 90% of global consumer Internet traffic will be through video. On Facebook alone video has become the leader of content and has left the good old-fashioned photograph behind.
Marketing professionals’ state that video content generates the best ROI with 93% of them currently using video for online marketing, sales and communication. Businesses are being encouraged to use video to help deliver a two-way interaction, making their brand more personable.
But what about quality I hear you say?
If there’s a good story to tell, it doesn’t necessarily have to be super quality. However, a badly produced video can actually damage a business/brand. A good video should be well shot and edited with clear sound and well thought out messages. High quality does make an impact. The last thing you want is your viewers’ struggling to hear what is being said or remembering the badly lit room/set!
Video isn’t thought of as a time consuming activity, can simplify and transfer complex information and is far less strenuous than reading. In this age of the short attention span, a dynamic and exciting video will fully engage with viewers converting them neatly into potential clients.
The revolution will be televised…online. Can you afford not to be a part of it?
Today, Tuesday 30 June, a leap second will pause clocks at midnight as the entire planet gains a second.
This leap second is designed to allow the Earth’s rotation (which is gradually slowing) to catch up with atomic clocks. The Earth’s rotation fluctuates daily and is slowing down due to a phenomenon known as “moon drag”. Without correction, civil time would slowly drift and in approximately 800 years from now the sun would be at it’s highest point at 1pm rather than midday.
To acknowledge this fascinating event we have put together 24 frames of working at London Video Productions. Each time you view Our Leap Second at LVP a different image will leap out.
