Tantrwm Plaid Cymru Leanne Wood Filming Video Productionleannewood
Tantrwm have been lucky enough over the past few years to work with some very special people, one of which was very recent: Leanne Wood. Tantrwm had the pleasure of meeting and working with the leader of Plaid Cymru, Leanne Wood. We were asked to produce two short informational videos showing Leanne Wood and her party's position on the EU Referendum that would then be shared onto her social media. The video was a request at very short notice, and Tantrwm were able to deliver a strong video in a short space of time. Working with Leanne Wood was an absolute pleasure. The videos are now live, and although the referendum has already taken place, why not take a look at the videos we produced...

Tantrwm get the chance to work with many different organisations in a wide variety of projects. Every now and then, one comes along which is really special and rewarding. An example of this was ‘Amy’s Story’ the project we created with Barnardo's in 2015.

At key moments in the story the film pauses and gives the young person the opportunity to discuss what they have seen and suggest coping strategies that the characters might use. Barnardo's were delighted with the sensitive and...

It's always a real treat when we get to work with extraordinary people who have a great story to tell, people such as Mandy St John Davey.

Being an expert in property development,...

Creative Video Production – A Brief Introduction

brief tantrwm video production camera wales company
To quote Dylan Thomas, "To begin at the beginning" - The very first thing for you to do in a creative video production is obtain a client brief. Starting out with clear objectives means that we know exactly what your vision is. We can then turn your vision into reality! If specific requirements are not communicated, this can lead to more time and money being spent on a project. The most important thing to concentrate on in a brief is the key messages you want to get across in your film. Mapping these out clearly will enable us to make a coherent and interesting video, specifically tailored to your organisation's needs. You can decide upon the style of video you’re looking for, or ask us...

Using a pen and paper will allow you to concentrate on your idea and not get distracted by drop shadows or fancy effects. Once you have your idea developed, draft it on a computer and take it from there! To find out how we can help with logos, please get in touch.
