Tantrwm - Creative Director, Stephen Hanks Meet Stephen, our creative director. They say that opposites attract. Well I guess that is the case with 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 other we...

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: 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...

Careers Wales trusted Tantrwm to make 18 bi-lingual films.

The films were split into the four groups based on the Skills Sectors Councils within the Food and Drink industry. Tantrwm travelled the length and breadth of Wales creating 18 films, each one featuring a different job. ...

At the Libraries, Archives and Museums Marketing Awards in Aberystwyth, Tantrwm sponsored the event by way of an iOgrapher giveaway. The Tantrwm iOgrapher giveaway consisted of a case for an ipad or ipad mini to be inserted into, a microphone, LED light, lens and hard case that all items can be stored in. Libraries, archives and museums across Wales have their budgets slashed over the past 5-6 years, therefore they need to promote themselves as much as possible so that everybody can utilise the valuable services they offer. From working with Welsh Libraries as often as we do, we witness library staff having loads of great ideas that they want to get across to their community, whilst sometimes lacking the means to do so. Therefore...

A couple of months ago, Tantrwm were asked to do something exciting. Following on from filming Leanne Wood ahead of the referendum, Tantrwm were asked to make a series of short films for the Vote Remain campaign urging people to stay in the European Union. We set up our filming gear in the Millennium Centre and cracked on with a busy morning's schedule shooting various Welsh Plaid and Labour MPs. Working closely with the communications team for the UK wide Remain campaign, each video was immediately uploaded to the campaign's social media channels, as well as the relevant political party Twitter accounts, just in time for the European Referendum vote. We were able to work effectively in a small space of time to produce these...

Promotional videos bring key messages about your organisation to a huge audience. This particular promotional video project found us venturing to outdoor educational centre, Storey Arms.....filming in a flooded, pitch black cave!

The first stop...
