Sensory: BBC Wildlife Director John Downer & the technology of ‘spy-cam’ filmmaking from Getty Images on Vimeo.

Small Cameras, Big Stories

Exciting developments in camera technology have levelled out of the playing field between the professional and the amateur and so the battle now for programme makers like award-winning wildlife filmmaker John Downer is having to produce something better than the average person.

The difference comes from investing into understanding the behaviour of the animal and devising a way to capture those unique moments, using a huge amount of research, inventiveness and dedication. This has resulted in exceptional and unique technical solutions that tell a story in an new and compelling way.

Vogue Fashion’s Night Out App from Territory on Vimeo.

Fashion’s Night Out was conceived three years ago as a shopping initiative in times of economic uncertainty. FNO, held annually in cities worldwide, sees a vast selection of mid to high-end retailers throwing a fashion street party late into the evening, offering promotions and in-store entertainment for one night only, just before the Spring/Summer worldwide fashion weeks in September. This year, to help shoppers navigate the evening’s festivities, FNO London had its very own cross platform mobile app - designed and built by us!

The app integrates social media such as Facebook and Twitter, and Google Maps to geo-tag participating retailers and help revellers experience the whole event. It also shows profiles of each store, listing their activity on the night.
