Creating a Six Part Web-Series
Client & Product
Nc'Nean is a new Whisky brand based in the highlands of Scotland. The founder, Annabel, started Nc’nean as she wanted to change the way the world perceives Scottish Whisky by creating a brand that's sustainable and different. Nc'Nean wanted a six part video series with their pre-selected guests trying their new recipe, the Whisky Six, and chatting about sustainability and breaking the rules.
The main challenge for this project was organising and filming shoots whilst maintaining a safe social distance with both the client and guest.
In addition, we due to restrictions at the time, we could only have 2 members of Tower View Media on set.
We wore masks throughout the filming day, and our client and guest only removed theirs when filming commenced. All surfaces, gear and products were sanitised regularly, and the crew all maintained a 1 meter distance from each other whilst on set.
We were able to successfully manage a 3-camera setup, including multiple lights, separately recorded audio lines and direction with a 2 person crew due to advanced planning and set management.
Planning and Pre-Production
We spoke frequently with the client prior to the day to ensure we were all aware of key elements that needed shooting, as well as establishing stylisation choices regarding the end result.
On the Day
We arrived early to the location to get all gear prepped and the set ready prior to the guest and clients arrival. Using stationary cameras and lav mics allowed us to maintain social distancing whilst recording.
We had two shoot days in total, with the creation of 6 videos in total. These videos were edited and then released on a once-weekly basis.
The videos were shared on the clients Instagram, Facebook, Website and YouTube once weekly, complimenting the various coverage of the brands Whisky Six recipe.
