The challenges of languages and a fading ‘O’ Level German…

We had a call from the awesome guys at Unify about creating some more tutorials. The previous OpenScape videos had been a real success, so Unify in Germany wanted to create a set too. Michael from Unify Germany was a real star and made my life very easy by being fluent in the product, and…


Efficient Software Demonstrations for Unify

We got a call from Sally at Unify asking us how many product demos we could film in a day for a tight deadline. These videos were to be hosted on their YouTube channel, and also needed to include an ending sequence that had video links to all the other tutorials. Ever the optimists, we…


#HarmonizeNow – the birth of Unify

Flashmob time with Siemens Enterprise Communications!

We had a call from Siemens Enterprise Communications to go down to London and film their Flashmob that was linked to their #AmplifyTeams initiative.

Blog? Video blog – you know it makes sense!

Big Ant Video have decided to make a monthly Video Blog to give tips and hints, and news of customer products to our clients. The idea is to briefly case study a video, and then show the techniques or ideas that made our product good looking, slick and highly functional!


Marks & Spencer at Castle Donington and Big Ant Video

We had a tight deadline request from M&S for an event where they were celebrating the progress they had made with their incredible distribution centre in Castle Donington. With only 5 days (including the weekend!) we had to come up with a design, convert and embed miles of timelapse, film in the warehouse, and then…


Christmas is on it’s way!

I know it’s only August, and most of us are thinking of sunshine and beaches, but one of our forward thinking Clients has already has their Christmas video card filmed! It may seem a tad early to be filming for December, but last year we struggled to get all our Clients filmed and edited in…
