Safe Power!

LookoutMedia was commissioned by our partners Deep South Media to produce a video to demonstrate how our client can operate safely in potentially dangerous electrical situations.

The client, Trant, is building a safety fence around one of the UK’s largest electrical sub stations and is keen to show the National Grid that it can do the work in a confined environment without risk. The video is being used to demonstrate its working practice with the Movax machine.

Vote of confidence – another 2 years of high quality videos for the University of Southampton

LookoutMedia has been retained as a preferred supplier of video services for the University of Southampton.

In a highly competitive tendering process LookoutMedia was praised for customer service, production quality and value for money.

Our most recent commission was to produce a simple guide to Tribology for the Faculty of Engineering.

Small Budget – Big Results!

At LookoutMedia we’re always keen to give our clients the best possible value for money – without compromising on results.

One way to do this is by using a Video Journalist rather than supplying a full film crew. This is a recent example of a video produced for the University of Southampton – filmed and edited over two days.

By using a VJ the total cost was a third cheaper than using a crew – and on the web you’d be pushed to see the difference in quality.

LookoutMedia Makes Vet Practice Purr… fect!

‘First Rate’ and ‘Fantastic’ are just two responses from the client following the delivery of a video we produced for one of the leading animal hospitals on the south coast.

In conjunction with our partners Deep South Media we filmed the launch party for the new premises of Sanctuary Vets in Portsmouth.

Just two hours of discreet filming by a video journalist and a days editing achieved great results on a tight budget.

Repeat Business From Satisfied Clients

We all strive to find new business but the past few months have shown us that it also pays not to neglect your existing customers.

LookoutMedia has just updated the video for the Captain’s Club Hotel and is also in the process of updating videos for the Spire Hospital and Lovett International – videos first produced in 2010 and 2011.

Not only does it keep the bank manager happy but it’s also a powerful endorsement from the client that he is satisfied with your work – the best possible feedback!

Casino Success!

No we haven’t gambled the petty cash on Blackjack.. we’ve just delivered a series of 26 tutorial videos for one of the country’s biggest online gambling websites.

Jackpotjoycasino got in touch after a search on LinkedIn revealed our expertise in the world of gaming (a previous life as a Croupier!)

The videos were filmed over three days in a specially designed Casino Studio and will be ‘interactive’ on Jackpotjoycasino’s website. This video is just a brief taste of what we produced.

New University Chancellor Ceremony

LookoutMedia was commissioned to film the prestigious installation of the new Chancellor at the University of Southampton. This is a ceremony that only occurs once every 5-7 years.

The event was broadcast live on screens around the university and was also streamed live on the internet. This complex four camera/seven crew shoot also produced a DVD.

Ministers say School Video is the Best

Officials at the Department for Education and Skills say the video we produced for one of their flagship projects is the best they’ve seen. LookoutMedia produced the video in partnership with Deep South Media to promote the Learning and Achievement Federation (LeAF) at Oakmead College in Bournemouth. The ‘Studio School’ is the first of it’s kind in the South West and one of only 12 in the country. The comments were made in the monthly Studio School meeting with the DfES. The video is now prominent on the Studio Schools Trust website http://www.studioschoolstrust.org/

Studio Schools offer academic and vocational qualifications, but teach them in a practical and project-based way. Study is combined with paid work placements with local and national employers that are involved in the school. On this occasion it was decided that the video should be presented by the Head teacher and the school is so pleased with the result that it has now commissioned two more videos to promote different aspects of the project – to be filmed in July.

Furthermore, on a recent visit to the school, the video was highly praised by local MP Connor Burns who has recommended the video to the Secretary of State, Michael Gove.

A Century of Testimonial Videos for the University of Southampton

LookoutMedia has just completed it’s 100th short testimonial video for the University of Southampton. Over the past year we have filmed between 8-10 short interviews on occasional days for a variety of Faculties. These result in a set of 1-2 minute videos that inform potential students about life at the university.

The series have included the experiences of international students, a day in the life of a fresher and staff profiles – as seen in this example.

The short videos are proving very successful in attracting new students (and their tuition fees!) and often also include moving or still images to complement the spoken word.

They are a very cost effective way of promoting a business because it’s possible to produce ten, one minute testimonials from just one days filming (at the same location) with a typical cost of £75 per testimonial.

More University Success

One year after our first commission, LookoutMedia has completed it’s 10th video for the University of Southampton. Our latest production was for the Faculty of Health Sciences promoting its pioneering work designing technologies to improve arm and hand function.

This was a complex story that required many script re-writes and a tight shooting schedule to get it all filmed in one day using a Video Journalist. The result was shown at a major education conference and is also featuring on the department’s website.
