STUDIO SHOOTS

STUDIO SHOOTS AND WORKING ON LOCATION Here at QF, the vast majority of our shoots are on location - out in the open air, in offices, homes, restaurants, bars, fields, on boats, at live events and in far-flung villages in every corner of the globe. However the requirements for a few of our recent projects have meant it’s been necessary to film in a studio. It’s a very different setting to the one that we’re used to but it’s been very interesting! In studio with Sandstorm for Hertz The main advantage of studio shoots is that every aspect of filming is 100% controllable. In a natural environment, there's a lot of time spent waiting for pesky clouds to pass over so that the light on your shots doesn’t change. Similarly, aeroplanes flying overhead can cause havoc during interviews, not to mention enthusiastic members of the public waving at camera when you’re out in [...]

THE RULES OF LIVING & WORKING IN INDIA

QUITE FRANKLY PRODUCTIONS INDIA THE RULES OF LIVING & WORKING IN INDIA Change came to in India came in 1991, when it opened up economy to the world after years of protectionism. Today's India, however, still has many problems - corruption, poor infrastructure, bureaucracy - but it also has new wealth and opportunity, which is attracting entrepreneurial talent from around the world. Bangalore, nicknamed the Silicon Valley of India, and now officially known as Bengaluru, is a city of energy and development. However, despite its status as a leading industrial centre, it is still very much in the development stage. That said, there is a lot more to Bangalore than meets the eye. Those who look beyond the power cuts, the road works, the traffic congestion and construction chaos will find that Bangalore is actually one of the prettiest cities in India. With its year-round salubrious weather, parks and tree-flanked avenues, Bangalore has earned itself [...]

QUITE FRANKLY PRODUCTIONS USA, INC

QUITE FRANKLY PRODUCTIONS USA, INC WITH LUCY CHARLSEWORTH We can’t quite believe that three years have passed since we launched Quite Frankly India. Time flies! We have had some great experiences along the way and seen how building a global business has given us opportunities that we wouldn’t otherwise have had. So…..

QFP AT OICONF 2018

QFP AT OICONF 2018 Last week QFP attended OiConf in Bristol. An event predominately focussing on online influence and how to use it to grow brands, it is one of the fastest growing annual conferences in Europe. There were some great speakers, sharing knowledge of everything from the future of AI and 360 video, to what brands can do to increase their online presence. Some of our favourite facts were: - 1 million videos are watched online every second. - 86% of companies use video in some way. - Video should always be mobile-compatible as far more are viewed on mobile handsets than on desktop computers. - Watching video triggers dopamine production in the brain. In other words, watching video is good for you! There were also 3 books that the speakers recommended: - 'How to Win Friends and Influence People' - Dale Carnegie - 'How Brands Grow' - Byron Sharp - 'Video Marketing Strategy' - Jon [...]

JEZ FRANKEL : PYEONGCHANG WINTER OLYMPICS 2018

JEZ FRANKEL PYEONGCHANG WINTER OLYMPICS 2018 Even though PyeongChang was my sixth Olympic Games, it’s still such a privilege to be able to see the world’s biggest sporting event up close... Working with Omega has always felt like family but as content has evolved for ever faster delivery, so has the number of our outputs at the Games. Omega’s role as Official Timekeeper puts them in a unique position in comparison to other top sponsors. Their equipment, technology and know-how are the start and finish of every Olympic sport and everything in between. Now data transponders attached discretely to athletes boots, ankles or shirts can track and transmit pretty much any kind of kinetic data, for instant consumption by audiences around the world. For us, it means filming up close in the most incredible locations and those are not without challenges. This time we filmed Big Air, Short Track, Ice Hockey, [...]

LISA & MARCUS : THE NEW FACES AT QUITE FRANKLY

LISA HAKOLA & MARCUS ROSE THE NEW FACES AT QUITE FRANKLY LISA "I like to imagine that one day I’ll look back on my life and say, “well Lisa, that was quite a gamble.” And no, I don’t mean that kind of gambling... As I stumbled out of the February rain into the warm embrace of the Quite Frankly Production office, the stress of looking for a job, in the hustle that is London, was finally over. But let’s get one thing straight. This is more than just a job. After all, I didn’t haul myself across the globe to simply sit at a desk. Although to be fair, there are days when that happens too." "Joining the QF team in a role that hadn’t quite existed before, didn’t feel as intimidating as it might have earlier in my career. Embracing the challenges of a creative environment has never not been [...]

QUITE FRANKLY DOES HORROR FILMS

QUITE FRANKLY DOES HORROR FILMS Getting in the spirit of Halloween, we’ve conjured up our selection of favourite horror films and scenes for your viewing pleasure. Bobby 'The Conjuring - James Wan (2013)' "Horror films give me nightmares. I don’t like nightmares and I don’t like horror films. But on a recent masochistic dip into the genre I watched three films. All of them gave me nightmares. The first was the best: The Conjuring. Tongue firmly in cheek it makes you smirk, makes you laugh and then makes you jump out of your seat, spilling your beer all over your girlfriend’s lap." Lucy 'The Others - Alejandro Amenábar (2001)' "I’d have to go with The Others. I’d choose a good ghost story over classic ‘horror’ any day and this is my favourite! I was living in Spain when this came out – it was shot almost entirely out there and comes from a Spanish director, so maybe that’s part of it’s [...]
