We have been contracted by Wandsworth Council Art Department to create a series of films to inspire young people to pursue a career in creative arts. The films will be shown during the Creative week in November 2020
We are creating a positive video about the amazing response of our local community in Wandsworth to say thank you.
Since the beginning of the crisis, hundreds of local volunteers gave their time to help the most vulnerable people of our community and we have certainly saw the best of people in those difficult times.
This music video project is a partnership between Keepsake Videos, Providence House and the Battersea Power Station Community Choir, and it is supported by The Alliance, Big Local SW11.
The music, interpreted by the young people of Providence House YES project and the Battersea Community Choir will be their own rendition of the Vera Lynn’s song “We’ll meet again” and there is a twist to it…
The song was premiered on Friday 8th of May on Riverside Radio.
We are entering this film to the Wandsworth Fringe Festival and the National Online Fringe.
To involve local groups in this project, we only need you to send us a picture or video before the deadline which is Friday the 15th of May 2020.
You can take a picture / film on your phone and send it on whatsapp to 07940401366 or sent to my email [email protected]
We do ask you to :
Film no more than 10 seconds of your community group in Landscape mode preferred / Not portrait
No need to talk on the video as the music will be on.
Make sure the footage you send is very still
For example, the picture or footage we will be looking for are:
Members of your organisation holding a we’ll meet again sign very
Member of your organisation holding an artistic poster / banner / sign of who you are
your organisation in action weather it is cooking food, delivering it, helping people on the phone, etc…
But remember it has to be a good quality footage, short, still and silent as will be put over the music. You can however be still, move, dance, wave …anything
Unfortunately we cannot use bad quality footage for this project and will contact you for an alternative if your footage is too dark or shaky
You could also help if you have other shots like:
Empty recognisable wandsworth landmark
Nice footage of clapping
Deserted high street / train station
We have made 3 teasers for our project below. We want the result to be artistic as we are planning to enter this music video to various festivals and the online fringe.

The internet has radically changed how we communicate… and video is at the forefront of the revolution! The simple fact is video conveys complex messages and concepts easily, quickly and succinctly. Don’t believe us? Just take a look at these straight-talking stats:
“People remember 10% of what they read, but 30% of what they see – and an incredible 50% of what they hear and see.” University of Texas. Metcalf Study, 1997
“90% of information transmitted to the brain is visual, and visuals are processed 60,000 times faster in the brain than text.” 3M Corporation & Zabisco
Quite simply, if you’re not producing videos for your business, you’re missing out on people’s preferred way to engage with your content. From service companies to manufacturers, from charities to multi-nationals, whatever your sector, video really does have the power to engage deeply with your audience and to change your business.
A PICTURE SAYS A THOUSAND WORDS…
We’ve all heard that one before and probably would agree with the sentiment. Now consider just for a moment, if a single picture conveys a thousand words worth of communication, what can a few minutes of video do?!
Video content can engage a viewer on many levels at the same time; not only through what is said. Most communication is non-verbal; add music, design and visual imagery to what is being said and you’re now saying a LOT. Modern audiences want video, not pages of text.
“One minute of video is worth 1.8 million words..” Dr. James McQuivey, Forrester Research
80% of internet users recall watching a video ad on a website they visited in the past 30 days. Of those, 46% took some action after viewing it.” Online Publishers Association
SO WHAT CAN VIDEO DO FOR YOU?
Maybe it’s hard to explain the service that you provide in an attractive and attention grabbing way in a matter of minutes? Do you want to recruit the very best talent? Do your staff want to better understand a company re-structure? Maybe you want to be positioned as the market leader, or perhaps you simply want to celebrate you brand values? For all these scenarios and more, video is a natural fit.
Using video on your website means Google will consider your website to be ‘content rich’. The likelihood of getting a page one listing on Google increases a staggering 53 times with video (Forrester Research).
