Eat In The Park // Music & Food Festival

Eat in the Park is a family-friendly music and food festival set in the heart of the Peak District in Buxton, Derbyshire.

As this year’s Media Partner, Coolbox captured festival goers exploring the wonderful Pavilion Gardens, finding the mouth-watering food on offer from the 20+ vendors, delicious local beer and the huge variety of music acts across the three stages.

NCAS // Illuminated Climate Canopy

The National Centre for Atmospheric Science, in collaboration with artist Alison Smith, has created a new sensory art installation to encourage climate and community action in the face of global environmental challenges.

The suspended exhibit, titled Climate Canopy, uses light and recycled materials to display the story of global warming through colour and touch.

Coolbox worked with NCAS to create a series of promo videos for social media, along with a suite of photography for online, social and press purposes.

Kinisi Flow // Social Promos

Kinisi Flow is an innovative & unique approach to fitness developed by Michael Dean.

This is an infusion of movement designed to challenge the way you move everyday through Flow. ​Flow is a continuum of energy that is passed from one movement to another. It offers a gateway & a method for all abilities to enhance their bodies movement potential.

Kinisi approached Coolbox to produce a series of short, punchy promotional films for social media and their website.

Sad Alien Climbing – Seeing Stars Training System

Sad Alien Climbing are the designers and manufacturers of the Seeing Stars Training System. It’s a unique product designed for home and gym use for those people wanting to train a range of upper body muscle groups.

Coolbox worked with Sad Alien to produce a series of product videos for their base stations and modules, as well as exercise demonstrations for their social channels and website.

Victoria Baths // Swim for Restoration

For the third time in 26 years, Victoria Baths welcomed visitors to its stunning gala pool to swim! Swim For Restoration is in aid of the ongoing restoration work the baths are currently going through.

Since its closure in 1993, a movement was started to protect the building from demolition and bring it back to its former glory. Lead by the Friends of Victoria Baths, they rely on the help of volunteers and supporters to be able to take steps towards the baths opening as a fully functioning swimming pool.

The National Lottery // Highest Lottery Champaign Spray

To celebrate making 5000 Millionaires, EuroMillions winner John Edmond gets fizz-ical and climbs Ben Nevis to conduct the UK’s highest Lottery champagne spray!

John and the Coolbox crew ascended more than 4400 feet and faced treacherous weather conditions to tick off a lifelong ambition from his bucket list and to mark the creation of the National Lottery’s 5,000th millionaire.

Almond Family Pubs // Recruitment

Almond Family Pubs own and operate a chain of hugely popular venues across South Manchester. They invited Coolbox to help them recruit new staff members ahead of an upcoming busy period for the chain.

The brand wanted the promotional film to feel friendly, approachable and inspiring, aimed at people considering a step into hospitality.

Sustrans Scotland – The Caledonia Way cycling route

Here’s a new promotional film we produced for Sustrans Scotland, and the launch of their new cycling route.

The Caledonia Way – National Cycle Route 78, runs from Campbeltown to Inverness, through Oban and Fort William, covering 237 miles alongside some of Scotland’s most stunning landscapes. You’ll cycle by the banks of Loch Ness, experience the views of Arran from Kintyre, see the standing stones of Kilmartin Glen, follow the Crinan Canal and ride the locks of Neptune’s Staircase.

A special thanks to all the volunteers, supporters, partners and members of the public involved in filming this video and being part of this project.

Great Northern Warehouse promotional film

Here’s a short promotional video we produced on behalf of Deansgate Media Group, to help highlight the attractions at the Great Northern Warehouse this Christmas in Manchester.

We finished the day off with a few frames at All Star Lanes (with some Long Island Ice Teas thrown in for good measure) and a wee skate on the Manchester Ice Rink.

As it was a run-and-gun shoot, we mostly opted for using natural light, with a little kick from some battery powered LED panels. I decided to shoot with Sony A7s, as it’s small and lightweight and is wonderful in low light. We used the Sony FS700 for the slow motion shots.

Park Lives

An initiative developed by Coca Cola, ParkLives is a free and easy way for people of all ages to get the best out of their local park. It includes a whole host of activities from tai chi to donkey grooming!

Coolbox worked with PR agency Citypress to produce two social media videos highlighting some of the fantastic activities ParkLives has to offer in Manchester’s parks.

Spectra – Aberdeen Festival of Light

Once a year, Aberdeen’s award winning and stunning Festival of Light: Spectra returns to the city to brighten up the winter evenings. Bringing together leading international artists with established Scottish collaborators the festival delivers a light spectacular to animate several key locations including Union Terrace Gardens, the atmospheric Kirk of St Nicholas as well as iconic Marischal College.

Coolbox worked with arts-led production agency Curated Place to produce a festival highlights video, to entice visitors to attend next year’s events.

Gardening Scotland Promo

Coolbox worked with our friends at Scene & Herd Pr and Marketing in Scotland to produce a series of promotional videos for Garden Scotland‘s website and social channels.

The brief was to show the variety of events, activities and installations at the national gardening event, and highlight its appeal to green-fingered enthusiasts of all ages.

Gardening Scotland was set up in 2000 by a group of volunteers passionate about the art and science of growing plants.
