Presenter: Angela Norris
Camera Assistant: Andy Alderslade
Sound Recordist: Kenneth Elliott
Producer: Trevor Jones
Gaffer: Arturo Vilar
Editor: Keith Daniels
Script Supervisor: Ann Jones

Tres Coronas forms a group of health and wellness facilities here on the Costa Blanca and keen to attract new patients to their excellent practice. Owner Stefan Bramsel approached producer Trevor Jones with a view to making a DVD film that would accompany their marketing pack. The marketing campaign being directed toward new clients intending to save on health and wellness treatment by travelling abroad to the warm Spanish sun. Treatment here typically costs a lot less than the UK and Ireland.

The brief was to create a ten minute video that not only shows off their facilities, but also to introduce the area and some of the beautiful locations that also promoted a healthy lifestyle. The client wanted a more traditional, filmic look to the video which would set it apart from standard corporate videos.

Award winning cinematographer Stephen Murphy was drafted in to take control of lighting and photography. The production team created a film that left the client delighted and exceeding his expectations.

Cost: This production was a 3-day shoot both on-site at the client's facility and set-ups at several locations. Transcendent Films took care of copy proofing, script writes, permits for airport and shopping centre, production, foley & editing to DVD author. Also included professional director and cinematographer attached to the project. We came in on budget at just 6.730 Euros. Now that's a bargain!

 

 

Cuétara - "Nutritional Paradise", client: Cuétara (October 2009)
Producers: Janet Horrocks, Tony Westbrook
Directors: Kris Koster & Sam Tapley
Visual Effects: Black Magic

Cuétara is a well-known, prestigious name in biscuit manufacturing in Spain, Central America and around the world. Since its beginnings in 1935, it has held a strong position on all markets, standing out for its technology, production, product range, distribution and taste, the secret to its success.

The Cuétara brand is synonymous with an excellent food product that stands out for its energy and nutritional value. All its products provide energy and health for both children and older people, thanks to the variety and fullness of the basic natural ingredients which characterise the brand.

Indeed, this is the brief for this larger budget commercial. In fact, it illustrates a good comparison to make with ads such as the one below that had next to no budget.

When there is a realtively good budget attached to a project, it is possible to hire the relevant crew, studios and visual effects team to engineer a commercial bound for national television.

The video above demonstrates the workflow of production footage toward the vast amount of post-production work engineered into the project.

English Butchers, client: Viva TV (May 2009)
Talent: Casa Ventura Dance Academy

Los Dolses English Butchers was achieved on a shoe-string budget. The reason we are show-casing this advert is due to the impact this ad had on the community and the resulting success of the campaign that was further extended to radio and news print.

Advertising companies spend many thousands, sometimes hundreds of thousands on ad campaign production. This advert was made for 98 Euros (The ad was a 'freebie' for a local English-speaking television channel to drum up some business).

But like any commercial, there was a real business to promote and a solid message to get across. The brief was for a 20-second commercial with impact to promote a local butcher's trade. The client required that the ad must show that he makes traditional sausages in the shop the old-fashioned way, that he sells other meats too and that he sells them to restaurants in addition to the public.

Once the brief and the message were identified, the task of transforming that into a 20-second visual message began. Key words such as 'tradition' with 'English' and 'old-fashioned' ... How could these be tied into sausage meat? These words made our creative team think of another timely British classic - Oliver! Fagin's motley crew even use sausages in the 'Pick a Pocket' number. And why pick a pocket when you can pick a sausage... or two?

The classic Oliver number became a perfect match for this ad campaign. A quick change of words and all that was needed were a few auditions and contacting a local dance school who desired an on-screen presence.

It was a challenge to create something on such a low budget. Everyone who worked on it gave their time freely and cheerfully which shows in the resulting production. The client and the TV channel were delighted with the result which had schoolkids across the Costa Blanca humming it for weeks!

But the story doesn't end there. The concept, tag lines, soundtrack and lyrics had such a phenomenal response and impact, the client adopted the marketing strategy and replicated it over to local radio. His business is now four times more lucrative than in the same period last year.

We have over 11 years in the UK ad-making industry. What's important to remember is that concept is everything. Only the very experienced are in-tune with what the public want and like to see and can come up with the right concept that will win business for you.

Cost: 98 Euros (begged and borrowed equipment and talent)
