We still build and host websites

Tantrwm build websites Tantrwm design, build, advise and host. There are plenty of web design companies out there all clambering for the chance to develop your website. We no longer advertise this element of our business even though we still build and host around 40 sites per year. Why don't we advertise? We have a small team and can only commit to projects where clients know and understand what they require, and value of the team working for them. We focus on sites for specific purposes such as internal communications, pages for events, pages to host live streaming and e-learning websites. One of our latest projects was Sky Blue Lofts. We helped our client understand what he needed to do in order to feature for...

Tantrwm – Creative Director

Tantrwm - Creative Director, Stephen Hanks Meet Stephen, our creative director. They say that opposites attract. Well I guess that is the case with Creative Director, Stephen and myself. Stephen gets to the detail of a script or an idea, I paint the big picture. Stephen worries about the practicalities, I envisage the joyous end result. Stephen asks 'How are we going to do that?' and I say 'When are we doing it?'. I say lets buy that new helicopter drone and Stephen reminds me that we really need a lens repaired! It is great working with Stephen, a talented, creative, and diligent individual who devours books and loses himself in subjects from science to sport. Over the 10 years that we have known each...

Tantrwm – Portrait vs Landscape

Tantrwm - Portrait vs Landscape Tantrwm ponder Portrait vs Landscape Why does Portrait vs Landscape matter? The advice for shooting great video on a mobile phone has always been 'to hold your phone sideways'. But times and tastes change! The BBC's current affairs app promotes and enables portrait video, easier captioning and lets users swipe left or right to access other stories. MTV UK have a new team “...with all video now shot in vertical or square formats to cater to Snapchat and Facebook news-feed environments...” An increasing amount of videos are displaying in a square format but it doesn't mean people aren’t going to be turning their TV’s on their side! We say wide-screen is still be best option in most situations, but if...

Tantrwm – Music to our Ears

Tantrwm: Talent - music to our ears Talent - music to our ears. It's a huge privilege to work with the talented people of the Royal College of Music, London. This institution, packed full of world class talent, asked Tantrwm to create films that showcase the RCM's cutting edge performance science research, and feature their facilities in films for prospective students. We interviewed psychologists, sports coaches and surgeons. Our team have had the opportunity to witness elite musicians and athletes push themselves to the limit. We have listened with awe at virtuoso pianists, violinists, guitarists and singers perform at close-quarters - definitely a perk of the job! We are very proud that The Royal College of Music chose to commission Tantrwm. If you think that...

What is Live Streaming? It seems that here at Tantrwm, we're not the only ones who use Live Streaming as a fantastic marketing tool for our clients.

Multi-Camera Shoots: Capturing expertise, making it available online

Capturing expertise, making it available online Live seminars are an amazing way to develop the skills of your staff, but it is very difficult for delegates to adsorb everything.  There are few opportunities to revisit the lectures and/or discussions from such events. LANTRA hosted a series of events across Wales and needed a method to allow delegates the opportunity to revise what they had learned and understood. Together with Tantrwm it was agreed a multi-camera video shoot was the solution. Tantrwm covered fifteen lectures, capturing some 400 minutes of video footage and subsequently made it all available online, where it can be now watched by anyone they chose. This valuable content now forms part of a CPD programme for the Food and Drink Industry skills…
