THE BIG NEWS THIS AUTUMN IS that Empathic Productions has completely redone our main showreel that covers most of the material that we have been involved with. It has been brought up to date by including later footage and the editing has been made little bit snappier in vogue with much of the video viewed today on social media sites. We have also redone our website’s front page, a.k.a. Landing Page to make it more concise for visitors in a hurry, who either do not have time, or wish to dig deeper into the website. The new showreel is now accessible on the front page and because aerial video is becoming a more important focus with clients, we have rounded the page off with a stunning shot of one of our UAVs being used on location. A huge thanks to Dan (Talbot) for the amazing photo!
The demand for book trailers is increasing and we have added another short one to our collection with LInda M James’ ‘Justice‘, an emotive and hard-hitting poetry anthology depicting the plight of wrongly imprisoned women in the past and present. Please help support this work and shine a light on injustice everywhere.
Another book trailer promo finalised last month was for Marco Diaz’ provocative and astonishing debut novel, OLIWIA. We had to capture a lot of the drama in the narrative, demanding a more cinematic, dynamic treatment. The end result, ‘The Cinema Special’ has received a lot of positive comment and Marco’s publisher was impressed enough to ask our permission to use the video for their own marketing. If you haven’t seen it yet, you can view it in our PORTFOLIO.
And last but not least, we have added amendments to our Privacy Page to better reflect our use of video footage in accordance with the Data Protection Act 2018 which is the UK’s implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
