Dynomite Launches Two New Showreels

Last year Dynomite celebrated 10 years in business, and it almost goes without saying that our industry has changed phenomenally in that time, not only in terms of the equipment used but also the type of videos that are in demand. One of the interesting things about trading in a time of social media is that everyone can view your work when you first start, and they can also watch it as it changes and improves. Growth today is a publicly shared experience.

Since the release of our last showreel, Dynomite has doubled in size, and the quality of our work has increased to a level that we are really proud of. This is in no small part down to the wonderful clients that we collaborate with, who drive us to make really creative, memorable videos that work for them. We’ve also taken the time to invest in new equipment, so that the work we produce is always future proof; one of the newest additions to our arsenal is a drone, which opens up a whole new range of possibilities for our clients and their videos.

So, with this new wave of high calibre videos, we thought it was high time we released an updated showreel – and it’s one that we’re truly proud to put our name on:

One area where we’ve really worked hard to develop our services is with our animated videos and graphic design. We’ve recently enlisted the skills of a talented specialist animator, which has enabled us to offer increasingly stunning graphics whenever the client needs them. With this service skyrocketing in popularity over the past 12 months, we felt the need to showcase it in a dedicated second reel:

Promo video using still images

We were asked by a design agency to create a short promo video to show their clients range of cookers using only still images. This is what we created.

The pace of the edit needed to be fast and by using the images of the actors for the photo shoot we were able to create small personal moments within the video with the cooker as the backdrop, which helped emphasize the ‘life revolves around a rangemaster’ tagline at the end.


Deciding on the right type of video production

We have outlined some of the different types of services and productions that might help you when you are considering having a video made.

1. Promotional videos – These can be used to promote a company, product or service and are very effective as short (usually between 30seconds – 3 minutes) videos that sit on a web page, or a range of videos over different pages relating to the content. Also very good for exhibition stands and to give out at exhibitions, to integrate with youtube and social marketing, to promote an offer or new area of the business, to give a quick demonstration of a product.

2. Training videos – These can be very varied, from something with simple voice over and animation to filming a recreation of an event, to include interviews with people or animation, sometimes in part and other times fully animated. The main point with a training video is to get the companies message across in a way that is engaging, creative and relevant.

3. Live event filming – This could be a conference that wants a multi camera shoot and editing down to the individual speakers and a 2 minute highlight of the event to a live show, to an open day or product launch. We have the capabilities to run a feed from 1 camera to a TV screen and a converter to join up that screen to another one, which would mean that you could offer a live feed from the event to 2 screens. We also work with a company that has a full OB (outside broadcast) setup, which would mean that you could offer live streaming to an internet  / TV channel, or up to 8 camera live edit that can be output to a screen.

4. Animation – This can be anything from  CGI (computer generated animation), digital grading (manipulating the image in post production to give it a bespoke look), animating illustrations, logo animation, motion graphics or 3d modelling, and can be  part of a filmed video to give it more visual presence or as your complete film.

5. Communication – This can be delivering an internal or external message to employees or clients, it could be used to deliver information, launch a campaign, give a notification or promotion or just as an update. The important point with a communication video is that it allows you to connect far better than an email or written document and it makes it more personal.
