Girls on film (actually Lego men)

My oh my have we been having fun over here recently! Long-term Velocity client and all-round legend John Watton from ShipServ asked us to produce a video to promote Pages, the maritime ‘Find Engine’. And since we fancy ourselves as Richmond’s answer to Martin Scorsese we were more than happy to oblige.

We wrote a script and a plot outline following our hero, Rex, owner of RexStar and supplier of spare parts to the shipping industry. He’s trying to grow his business, but he’s struggling to get his voice heard. We won’t tell you what happens next, you’ll have to watch the video and see.

Then we roped in Guy Hocking as our producer. We couldn’t have picked a better man for the task – he’s surpassed himself this time. Having stolen his kids’ Lego men and set up a studio in his spare bedroom, Guy produced a brilliant stop-motion film to fit our script. After that we signed up Paul Ridley to do the voiceover, and the end result is what you see above.

Go on. Put the popcorn and watch it.

    Nice. We did three film short parody videos about our SaaS lead management software. What do you think about them? http://www.youtube.com/360leads
