Filming Our First Video

Leave a comment

We have been very busy over the last couple of weeks, not only attending the Handmade Fair but also trying to shoot a short instructional video on how to fill our reusable Christmas crackers. In between sending orders and making stock,  we have been rearranging props, furniture and my living room in general to capture the best shots possible. It’s something we have never tried before which proved quite challenging. Luckily I was able to call upon the expertise of my good friend Felicity, who had some great tips and advice, plus an endless supply of patience. The whole experience also highlighted the fact that my Brummie accent is quite a bit stronger than I originally suspected; luckily there was no need to hear me talk on this occasion!

Shooting out video in my living room

Christmas comes to my living room in the middle of Summer!

The video includes a demonstration on how to fill our crackers, and some lovely gift ideas for all the family. Since their launch we have enjoyed chatting to customers who have used our crackers to send some extra special surprises which we have also included in the film.

Photoshoot props

We had great fun raiding my neighbors silverware and whiskey collection for props!

You can check out the video below or follow this link to view on YouTube. We hope you enjoy and if you have any comments or suggestions of what you would put in our crackers we would love to hear from you.
