On the 3rd May 2015 we Directed the Video Production for the Liverpool Spring 10K. The race is held annually by Merseyraces in Sefton Park of Liverpool, UK. This year, almost four thousand people embarked onto Sefton Park to take part in the event. We at Core Media Productions were commissioned to produce two videos to showcase the event, a short ‘teaser’ video and another longer ‘highlights’ video.
We held numerous meetings with the race organiser, most of these meetings being at the location itself, enabling us to also recce the location in different weather conditions. The meetings were very productive and consisted of planning absolutely essential
and precise instructions for our team to follow individually during the event. The crew on the day was made up of two camera operator/directors, two camera operators and one audio operator. Each member of our team had their own intricate briefing and itinerary to abide by on the day, which was personalised by us, based on their role within the crew.
Arriving on the site a number of hours early, almost stranded by torrential rain, we fought through the conditions, set up our gear and got on with the job. Throughout the afternoon the weather drastically improved, making it a lot easier for us!
Vital pieces of equipment were needed for us carry out the job to the highest possible standard. Based on both our own knowledge of the industry and also on the information we received from our client, we rigged up the crew with radio communications, making it easy for us to communicate effectively across the 235 acre spread of land. Among our equipment we also had a variety of camera rigs, a crane jib, a camera slider and professional audio devices to capture every pivotal detail.
The event was a great success, we teamed up with a number of top brands on the day, including globally recognised Lucozade Sport and John West Tuna. After the race day we worked non stop in the studio to edit the sequence together based on very particular details provided by Merseyraces.
After receiving the two videos, Merseyraes gave us a glowing testimonial, which we are very proud of. “Core Media Productions worked tirelessly and delivered exactly what I asked for. Their enthusiasm and work ethic is second to none and I can’t recommend them highly enough”
