Best. Video. Ever.

January 16, 2018

“Best video ever!” That’s what our awesome client Greenbelt Festival said about our work!

Every August for the past 5 years, Captive North spend 4 days camping out under the stars and filming the annual festival, currently held in Kettering, Northampton. Greenbelt brings together Faith, Arts and Justice in a weekend full of live music, comedy, talks and theatre.

Creative Director Paul Northup commissioned Captive North to produce a promotional video that will encourage new people – especially young people and young adults – to come to the festival and guess what … he wasn’t disappointed.

“This is by far the best video we’ve EVER had!”
– Paul Northup, Greenbelt Festival

Greenbelt Festival has run for over 40 years and has grown to hosting 20,000 delegates. Its promotional video content is a vital tool for marketing the event. Captive North has worked with the festival organisers for the last five years, striving for bigger, more impressive results each year. Sam from Captive North managed the movements and coverage of two video teams throughout the festival and was able to adapt to changes in the activity schedule and capture multiple areas at the same time. An editor was also based on site. Daily review meetings with a team from the festival enabled a fast edit turnaround. During production, camera rushes were regularly backed up on 2 separate drives. Video teams were given waterproof cases and covers for the equipment.

“Captive North have been wonderful to work with. They take on board ideas while also offering their own. They are really professional but at the same time flexible and adaptable – which is especially important in our fast-changing festival context. They’re also very efficient, delivering great content in a very short space of time.”
