September – December 2011
Post was intensive on the Belgian Grand Prix edits and the motorsport action
continued with a return to Maranello, filming on the Fiorano Circuit once more.

Strapped into the passenger seat of a Ferrari 458 Italia with a works driver at the wheel is one way to up your adrenalin level. What's the Italian for 'big smile'?

We filmed an event in the shadow of Tower Bridge in Central London, presented by the evergreen Quentin Willson and ex-Blue Peter presenter Konnie Huq, featuring the vocal talents of X-Factor winner Alexandra Burke, amongst others.

Some invoices are extremely technical; a customer needs to refer to supporting documents in order to understand how a final figure has been calculated. We graphically recreated a complex set of invoice documentation and flew a virtual camera around the pages to explain in detail how the calculations are done. This was a clear way of explaining to customers how their bills are worked out.

Point-of-sale machines for credit and debit card payment can be quite tricky to operate. We shot an extensive series of live demonstrations in the studio to explain step-by-step procedures for setting up and using a whole range of models from different manufacturers. The final edited videos were built into a web resource designed to support staff training worldwide.

The conference in Rome was shot in HD and the highlights edited back in the UK to provide a concise round-up of the activities and key business messages, but also to provide all delegates with an enduring memento of their experiences. The main location was imaginatively adapted to combine the rich architectural heritage of the ancient city with high-tech staging to create something truly memorable.
We were back in Italy later in the month on a motorsport mission at Ferrari's Fiorano circuit. We interviewed Team Principal Stefano Domenicali and filmed track action, including positioning HD minicams to good effect in several 458 Italias… and getting some great onboard footage!
