SuitCase Media

with 4 comments

I finally put together our first showcase representing our first 8 months of filming projects and looking through the footage was such a pleasure.

I also learned a lot about what SuitCase Media is all about. Yes, we travel, yes we take some great imagery in some fantastic locations and get to make this into short films. We manage to pack all our kit into normal travel bags without the need for 20 Peli-cases of cameras, rigs and equipment – hence the brand SuitCase. We also manage all sorts of projects from large and extreme events to small business web videos to advertising shorts…. But the overriding theme behind all our films is ordinary people. Cooks, runners, extreme sportsmen, pilots, therapists, dancers, organisers, military but mainly ordinary people who have a story or are part of a story.

Take a look at our last 8 months work visit our Vimeo portfolio to see some individual event films we have made and if you have a story to be told or commercial proposition please let us know. We are simple, unique and love people…..

Chloé Sucrée

leave a comment »

During the spring I met the daughter of a friend of mine. She told me about her business ideas and her cooking… The overriding factor in me believing in her was her passion for what she does. SuitCase Media recently went to make the first two short films, one of a day in her life and the other, a recipe for a scrumptious chocolate tart. The aim is to find funding and build the Chloé Sucrée Brand. It was a real pleasure filming and editing so enjoy the videos here…
