We’ve learned some valuable lessons since we started, including how to manage;
WORKING WITH SPORTS STARS
How you work with premiere league footballers changes depending on whether they won on Saturday. Johann Cruyff once shouted at us during a training session for leading Dutch Eredivisie team AZ Alkmaar and West Ham striker Michael Antonio wore our director’s Arctic jacket between shots on a freezing January day for a summer campaign in the US. Plus we’ve jogged alongside one of South Africa’s top TV hosts, models and fitness influencers.
WORKING WITH FANS
We’ve spent all day with Rugby League fans during the Magic Weekend, where every Super League match takes place on one day at the same stadium. And we’ve travelled from Craven Cottage to St. James Park on a coach to film the journey with Fulham Football Club’s most ardent fans.
Ask us about running a ‘rolling lock up’ with Portland Police Department in Oregon. Or how it takes 20 minutes from the first crew member saying ‘that cloud looks ominous’ to getting total whiteout in Cape Town. We ‘ve shot sports content in all kinds of other places including San Francisco, Barcelona and Tenerife.
BRIEFS EVOLVE RAPIDLY
And not always in a bad way. Sport is a fast moving, constantly changing environment and your video production partners need to be on their toes. We’ve developed an instinct for working fast, solving problems and seeing the opportunity in the crisis.
ALL KINDS OF BUDGETS WORK
We’ve shot video for a week in San Francisco and we’ve nipped out for the afternoon to shoot professional women footballers coaching six year olds for the WFA Sister Club programme. These exist at two very different ends of the budget scale. We have the skills and toolkits for both.
We’ve been so lucky to produce sports videos for a range of clients. Here are some of the people we’ve worked for, or with, to produce fantastic, successful content over the years.
The sport video has traditionally been the area where we get to play to our strengths. It’s a fast-moving environment that produces great visuals. We thrive on the pressure and take pride in our work.
We’d love to hear from you.
“I have worked with the Vermillion Team on several film
productions around the world. I ordered several marketing videos from
Vermillion Films to support the global launch of the Polar M400 sport
watch. The Vermillion Team managed the entire process from the initial
storyboarding right through to the final edit with great
professionalism. They arranged the best cast, crew and locations in
order to deliver outstanding results. As a result, and as a client I
could totally trust them to hold all the threads while providing results
with a real wow factor and staying within the agreed budget.”
