Indie was commissioned by Cisco systems to collaborate on producing a promo video to launch Cisco’s CREATE initiative.

Creative Technical Production

From day one we worked closely with Maria Slowinska to help develop the initial script.

We then spent 3x days shooting interviews on location with the various start up businesses who had won support as part of the earlier RAPTOR project, as well as interviewing Cisco UK CEO Mike Smith on location at Cisco’s Finsbury Circus office.

We used both a standard HD camera, plus a shallow depth of field DSLR, to give a variety of feels between wide angle scene setting, plus engaging close ups.

Extensive pre-planning ensured we covered five locations and 6 interviewees on a tight run schedule.

We worked with and xxx to source and deliver the right Voice Over artist for the piece.


Post Production Services

The Promo was cut natively in Avid Media Composer, with Graphics from Apple Motion using stock imagery from Cisco’s archive.

All finishing also took place in Avid Media Composer.
