Shepherd and Wedderburn Property Conference 2015

In September we had the pleasure of filming at the Shepherd and Wedderburn Property Conference 2015 held at the EICC in Edinburgh (scroll down for video). We had recently produced another promotional video for this top law firm showcasing their participation in the World Water Congress earlier this year.

Industry luminaries gathered to share their unique insights and to discuss the innovative solutions shaping the property sector. At Shepherd and Wedderburn Property Conference 2015 speakers like Colin Innes and Trevor Williams dispelled some of the popular myths relating to the private rented sector, explored how alternative models and collaborative working can help drive the development of new housing and considered why density and development size is an essential stimulus for sustainable growth. Speakers also considered what environment is required to attract the investment necessary and why adaptability of buildings should be front of mind at the planning and design stages in order to future proof our built environment against the shock waves of time, technology and change of use. The list of speakers included experts in the field like Ian Mulcahey, James Fennell, Duncan Sutherland and David Yaldron.

Filmed at the EICC, as a two people camera crew we interviewed the speakers just before or after the sessions with minimal set up time. Most of the time we made the best out of the light available, making sure the right branding was present in the background.

Once again we enjoyed being part of such exciting and insightful events and creating loads of wonderful slider shots to capture the engaging atmosphere of the event. Watch the video below:

PoLHA’s 40th Birthday with Thinktastic: This is Your Life

Over the summer we joined our friend Mike Stevenson, founder of Thinktastic, in the preparations of Port of Leith Housing Association‘s 40th birthday celebrations.

We took part in the project by filming and editing a short film that was shown at their birthday event on the 2nd of September. We shared many touching moments interviewing the association’s tenants, staff members and partners, who shared their stories and feelings looking back at their experience with PoLHA over the last 40 years.


The live event was skilfully orchestrated and conducted by Mike Stevenson, whose heartfelt speech quickly engaged the audience and triggered many Leithers’ memories. It is always a pleasure to see Mike’s ability to inspire in action. His intelligence and his versatility have led him and his Thinktastic team to proudly offer a whole range of services from motivational speaking and bespoke events to training and development courses for organisations.

The event took place at the Hibs’ stadium and was attended by 150 guests including PoHLA’s staff, tenants, partners and contractors. It is not every day that we have the opportunity to receive such a positive live feedback through the heart-warming reactions of our “film stars” as they saw themselves on screen for the first time. The film was so well received by PoLHA that they used some still images of it for their banners, which you can see in the event.

Our short film has been featured on POLHA’s website and you can watch it by clicking here.

The event was a big success and the best example of Port of Leith Housing Association’s good practice in their services, which have improved the quality of life of the community in Leith for the last 40 years. Please find here a snippet video edit of the event:
