Services

Storyboarding

We will work closely with you to establish the vision for the project and come up with a shot list to ensure that all required material is captured stress-free.

Location Scouting

A great setting is vital when it comes to video. As Cornish locals, we can help suggest the perfect location for a shoot that may well not just be the standard tourist traps.

Video Production

We use the following professional equipment for all aspects of production:

  • Multiple Canon Cameras
  • A vast array of Canon L Lenses
  • Top of the range Sennheiser wireless lav microphones
  • LED Lighting Rig. Battery powered to allow us to light anywhere without the heat and power issues of traditional lights
  • Sachtler fluid head tripod. This is vital to ensure stable, professional footage
  • Custom Shoulder Rig to enable us to film anywhere on the fly
  • Dji 4K drone

Post Production

Editing and Colour Correction

Editing and Colour Correction using ‘DaVinci Resolve’. This is the same tool as used on Blockbuster movies and gives us full control to style your project. Sound Design and Audio Mixing using Fairlight. Nothing ruins a project quicker than poor audio. We ensure that everything is recorded and mixed in a professional environment using the latest tools.

Deliverables

We can optimise the content delivery for anything from websites to cinema screens. Let us know your needs, and we can encode for YouTube, optimise for streaming to mobile devices or even create a Digital Cinema Package significantly cheaper than elsewhere.

Cutting Edge

Style: Documentary

Client: Charles Atkinson

Charles said:

“Video – the first person plural of the Latin verb – to see. An audio visual insight into any world.
This time it’s my world, to me, a special place – I can’t let anyone in….unless …. I can trust them in all that they do.

England expects…..’ again the boys deliver, again I’m repaid for my confidence – like never before. Thank you Sharkfin Media for making the intangible tangible – beers all round, Cheers! – to the three amigos and their fine work – Shine on guys.”

Client Brief

Sharkfin Media were commissioned to produce a 2-3 minute film showcasing how Charles Atkinson manufactures his quality kitchen knives from the raw material to the finished hi-end product at his workshop, in the wilds of Bodmin Moor – singlehandedly.

The film needed to be an artistic, contemporary, professional piece of work that would be viewed on the Atkinson Art website and watched by his potential clients. The turnaround time was short but needed to be finished and presented within a four week timeframe.

Initial Consultation

Charles discussed his requirements and outlined the knifemaking process in detail.

Preproduction

During this time, filming dates were secured, locations sourced, and a detailed shooting schedule was created. The shooting schedule is a complete document which breaks down each scene into its component shots. It contains what equipment, people, props etc will be needed throughout each shooting day and keeps the production on track.

Production: 30th of October

Equipment and crew were prepared and organised for filming. During the shoot the crew were presented with amazing local weather, so adjusted the look of the film to make the most of the natural light on offer. Using the shooting schedule shots were followed and timescales met. After filming, the rushes were logged and files archived.

Editing and Post Production

After logging the footage and sifting through the rushes an initial assembly was put together by the Editor Jay Warren. Working closely together the production team finalised the film, sourced music, graded the look and feel of the footage and completed the edit.

Upon completion, Sharkfin Media screened the finished film for the client, who was very happy with the finished result. The film was then uploaded to his site and made available for other social media platforms.

The film needed to be punchy, modern and show off the exciting sport of axethrowing!

Initial Consultation

Toby discussed his requirements and together with Sharkfin looked at the best way to sell this new adrenaline filled pastime.

Preproduction

During this time, filming dates were set, cast members were sourced and filming locations recced. Dates had to be rearranged and fitted to work with Covid-19 rules and regulations.

Sharkfin Media also made a comprehensive shooting schedule and shot list.

Production

Actors were called to our location and talked through the axethrowing process. Safety was paramount for the actors and crew with health and safety being followed.

The shoot went to plan and we managed to get all the shots required within the time.

What Does Christmas Mean to You?

Style: Corporate

Client: Truro Diocese

Diocesan communications advisor, Richard Best said:

We were really pleased both with the end result and the fact that it could be turned around within such a tight time frame. It was important to us that the work was contemporary, but as it was for Christmas it also had a short shelf-life, so we couldn’t really afford any slippage. The team at Sharkfin quickly gained a thorough understanding of what we needed, and then went ahead and got on with it with minimal support needed from myself, which was a great help. We are pleased with the process and the end result, and are already discussing future projects we will work on together.

Client Brief

The Diocese of Truro commissioned Sharkfin Media to produce a film asking members of the church and the people of Cornwall what Christmas means to them.

The film needed to be a snappy, contemporary, professional piece of work that would be viewed on Social Media and watched by as wide an audience as possible. The turnaround time was short but needed to be finished and presented within a 2 – 3 week timeframe as the film needed to be viewed before Christmas.

Initial Consultation

Diocesan communications advisor, Richard Best, visited Sharkfin Media’s offices and discussed the initial idea with Director Dan Mallett who then broke the project into key scenes that needed to be shot. After the meeting the budget for the entire production was agreed upon.

Preproduction

During this time, dates were secured, locations sourced, and a detailed shooting schedule was created. The shooting schedule is a complete document which breaks down each scene into its component shots. It contains what equipment, people, props etc will be needed throughout each shooting day and keeps the production on track.

Production

Equipment and crew were prepared and organised for each days filming. Using the shooting schedule shots were followed and timescales met. When only having access to individuals in the film at certain times it is important not to overrun or risk losing the next prepared appointment.
After each shooting day the rushes were logged and files backed up in the studio.

Editing and Postproduction

After logging the footage and sifting through the rushes an initial assembly was put together by the Editor Jay Warren. Working closely together the production team finalised the film, sourced music, graded the look and feel of the footage and completed the edit.

Then a viewing was organised for the client and after a few simple changes the film was finished. We then uploaded to the Diocese social media platform and a hi res broadcast version sent to the client for future use.
