SSE Promo video: This is a combination of stock footage and original footage - I filmed the sewer sections on a tour with Thames Water, entering in Hyde Park... tailored music, editing (Final Cut), animations (Motion) & V/O recorded by Creative Impetus and written by Gemma, one of my marcoms colleagues. I worked up the original story board using "found images" and Pink Floyd's One of the Days track, which I can't post on here for copyright reasons, obvs. But it gave the right mood and helped get management buy-in and budget sign off.
