The Thinking Men – Local Band music videos

One thing that’s really great about the work we do here at Apricot Films is the variety!  From our work with large companies producing high quality corporate films, helping charities promote themselves through online video to producing music videos for local bands.

One thing that carries through all these different videos is our creativity and passion for each project.  We were recently brought in to produce several music videos for local Norwich band The Thinking Men.

We combined a recording session at Old School Studios with a fantastic live performance at The Waterfront, Norwich.  Working closely with the band we edited the footage together for several music videos showcasing their unique talents, and it was shortly afterwards that the band went on to be awarded the Future Radio Next Big Thing 2013 award and are booking tour dates around the country and producing great new material.

We’re really proud of the work and hope to work with the group again in the future.

Southend Pier Cultural Centre – Kier

A new £3m cultural centre weighing 170 tonnes has been hoisted by crane on to the end of Southend Pier.

The 350 sq m (3,767 sq ft) steel structure was brought in by boat in one piece from Tilbury where it was built.

When completed in the summer, the centre will include a multi-purpose hall seating 185, artists’ studios, a cafe and outdoor terrace.

Apricot Films was there to film it all for Kier, Price & Meyers, White Arkitekter, Sprunt, GPS Marine & Southend Borough Council

The Sun – Man Vs Food – Video Report

Man vs Food Great Yarmouth

The Sun newspaper contacted us to film the brave reporter, Lee Price, as he attempted to conquer, perhaps, the biggest breakfast in the world at Jester’s Diner in Great Yarmouth.  I skipped breakfast as it was a very early start, and was quite hungry when I arrived…however, after witnessing his attempt, I found I no longer had the stomach for it!  A gallant effort from Lee, but it was an incredible amount of food.

It was a pleasure working with The Sun, and they were really pleased with the results (which can be seen below)
