Video content production at natural history muesum

Video Content in its Natural Habitat

Our first film shoot of 2015 took us to the Natural History Museum but not as you know it. I’m an out and out science geek and visit the Natural History Museum probably every other month to salute the Darwin statue and check in with Dippy…and I’ve never seen it look so beautiful!

I now know how Ben Stiller feels (and why he bothered to make so many sequels to that darn film!)


The occasion? The 11th annual Grant Thornton Quoted Company Awards where we supplied not one type of video content but two; the opener to the awards themselves and interviews with the winners straight off the podium. Two pieces of video content. Two very different applications.


Jimmy Carr was the MC for the evening’s proceedings and was at his sarcastic, cutting best. It was upon Jimmy’s introduction that opening video played – drama, check. Impact, check. Suspense…well it was after a 3 course dinner so perhaps I’m pushing it J

It was then all hands on deck for some seriously quick turnaround interviews! The cream of the crop were brought to us, high from their big win and we conducted the interviews in one of the great halls of the museum. Good preparation and strategic questioning makes for valuable content so we worked tightly alongside the Editor of GCI, where the interviews would be hosted, to ensure they got some remarkable video content.

There were some fantastic nominees and all were worthy winners and now I know where to invest…who’s the real winner?!?


At High Life, we’re constantly developing our services and we can now offer a tailored content marketing plan alongside the video content we produce for you, should you need support in that area. As video is by far the most effective medium of content, we want to make sure everyone can and does have access to it.
