Nimans Top Gun video spoof

id8 Media worked alongside Hawk AudioVisual and TLC to work on a spoof version of Top Gun and a collection of interviews with friends and colleagues as  part of a surprise birthday party from Julian Niman.

For the Top Gun spoof 3d models of F14 Tomcats and assorted explosions were added to footage we shot at the Niman’s head office in Manchester as well as some greenscreen footage.  The spoof was a huge success and featured numerous members of staff from Nimans playing characters in the film.

The project was completed entirely using After Effects and 3D Studio Max.  The film was a great hit, and you can view a small part of it above.

Time to change for Thomas Cook…

id8 have been working with Storm Events on numerous projects over the last few weeks relating to Thomas Cooks new brand identity.  On the 30th September, we recorded the rebranding of a shop and the offices in Peterborough, this was then edited and uploaded to youtube by Thomas Cook.

The shop conversion should have lasted around 3 hours, however as you can see on the timelapse… they had some problems refitting it… and filming finished after 8 hours, which is why it suddenly goes very dark!

id8 have been working with Hawk Audiovisual for a very unusual events for  We set up a diary room, with 2 way video and audio feeds, and Aleksandr Orlov interviewed members of the staff for a team building day at The Marriott Hotel in Peterborough.  We then edited all the interviews together into two very popular videos, with the staff loving the results, as well as loving being interviewed by a meerkat!

The interviews were all hot in full HD, and used an autocue to relay message and images to the interviewees in the diary room.  We then extended the limited bookcase background and added in other props and effects in post production.

Bennetts Insurance on the Marketer Youtube Channel.

Hannah Squirrel of Bennetts appears on The Marketer’s youtube channel, courtesy of id8 Media and Hawk Audio Visual.

Bennetts (the UK’s leading biking insurer) is one of our regular customers, so when the need for a fun video capturing a day in the life of Hannah came up, they naturally gave us a ring!

Filming took just an hour (on an Af101 with some Nikon primes), and video was edited together the same day, with the highlights piece at the end being re purposed from a different Bennetts project.
