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.

Here is a recent project that we completed within a week and on budget.
Client: Truro Diocese
Project Deadline: 7th of December 2017
Project Title: What Does Christmas Mean to You?
Project Delivered: Wednesday 6th of December, one day ahead of schedule.
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.”
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: Monday 13th of November
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: 14th – 21st of November
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: Friday 24th – 30th of November
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: Saturday 2nd – 5th of December
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.
