Sunday 17th of November 2013 was official World Prematurity Day so we though we would use this weeks Tuesday Treat to draw your attention to the music video that we produced for Katie Sutherland’s song Little Diamonds to promote the services of So Precious a charity providing support to Neonatal, Maternity and Paediatric Services within Forth Valley NHS. Its run by a small team of volunteers who do great work to help out the hospital.
Heres some behind the scenes snaps from the production of the video.
It all started with our crazy idea of putting a piano in the woods with festoon lighting, logistically not the easiest thing to do with the weight of a piano! So we started ripping it apart in the office trying to remove as much weight as possible, with a few injuries along the way it really makes you appreciate the craftsmanship that must go into making a piano. Oh and we got trapped in a lift for 10 minutes not scary at all :-0
It was then off to Mine Woods in Bridge of Allan where ourselves, Be Eventful and some helpers transformed the area then had a chippy while waiting for the light to disappear and make it look even more magical.
A couple more shoots at Forth Valley and Alison’s house and we were wrapped wooo!
After the long hard slog of editing it was on to the Gatsby themed charity night to premiere the video along with Katie performing live.
Don’t we make a motley crew!
