Gearing up for a busy 2015

We hit the ground running after Christmas – we were half hoping for a slow-down to allow us to re-assess how to make our workflow more efficient, but it’s only been the last 2 days that have allowed that. One area that has developed considerably is creating 3D elements and compositing. Although our original machine…


#AmplifyTEAMS Event at Siemens Enterprise Communications

We had the pleasure of working with Siemens Enterprise Communications, earlier this month at their Milton Keynes office during the launch of the Amplify Teams initiative which focuses on the disparate, disconnected communication tools we all use and how these have developed into a fragmented mess! Even as an SME, BigAnt Video sometimes struggles to…


Big Ant, Big Ben, and the London Eye!

We recently went to London to film some major landmarks for a client in Derby. One of the commissions was the beautiful Battle of Britain Sculpture by the Thames by amazing artist Paul Day. These sculptures have to be filmed as it’s only when you track around the sculpture that you appreciate the way the…


Big Ant and the British Bobsleigh Team in Innsbruck – The Conclusion

We first met Gary Anderson from Team GB Bobsleigh when filming in Bath back in October 2010. Gary expressed an interest back then about having a video made to promote Bobsleigh in the UK. We stayed in touch via email and Twitter and then had a meeting almost 2 years to the day at HIPAC…


BigAnt and the British Bobsleigh Team in Innsbruck – Day 4 Part 2

Well lunch time came and along with it torrential rain – not good news for the guys racing this afternoon. We made our way up to the start of the track where all the teams assemble to prep the sleds before the inspection pre racing. Once the sleds have been checked for runner size and…


Big Ant and the British Bobsleigh Team in Innsbruck – Day 1

An early start at 5am saw a really cold and very frosty morning. Heathrow Airport were cancelling flights due to freezing fog, so fingers were crossed that it would stay warm enough down at Gatwick for us to fly. Luck stayed with us and we took off on time for an uneventful flight into Innsbruck…


Preparing for Sochi – Big Ant Video and the British Bobsleigh Team

Proud and pleased to be a Performance Partner for the British Bobsleigh Team. We have been asked to make a documentary that captures the struggle and triumph of the team as they follow the road to Sochi 2014, and also use our cameras to help the team analyse and fine tune their performance. All the…


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…
