Crane Dance Bristol

In early October, 10,000 people flocked to Bristol Harbourside to watch the iconic dockside cranes become illuminated and dance to music as part of The Space / WIRED Creative Fellowship, supported by The Watershed . The idea was the brainchild of Laura Kriefman who is currently a studio resident at The Watershed. We were brought in by director Drew Cox to help to film the event. A heavy emphasis of the shoot involved shooting timelapses to showcase the cranes moving which was a perfect way to utilise our Dito OmniSlider. Three things we love to do...

Resident Advisor: Real Scenes Mexico

Packing the kit bag to go on a Real Scenes shoot is always an exciting time. You know that you are going to be heading off on a trip that you will remember forever. Although we normally visit for between a fortnight and a month, it always strikes me how much better you get to know a city when making a documentary there, rather than just passing through as a backpacker. We always seem to end up in a few situations where you pinch yourself and think, ‘how did I end up here?’ This year’s trip to Mexico City...

Arcadia Bristol Metamorphosis Show

Clockwise have always been fascinated by Arcadia. Our background in music and events has led us to many festivals and it’s only natural that we gravitate towards such an impressive structure. We’ve covered their shows multiple times, including an epic company outing to Glastonbury in 2013, and two of the directors even performed on the stage during an event at Motion Bristol when it was in the ‘Afterburner’ form.

Fix Up Skate Comp Results

The brief was simple. Create a two minute film focused on skateboarding and having fun. Last weekend sixteen teams spent three days getting creative in the sunshine, armed with a video camera, a "loose" storyline and a large dose of enthusiasm. It doesn't seem to take much to encourage skateboarders to put on some fancy dress and take to the streets.

Boomtown Fair 2015

Boomtown really smashed it.

This was their 7th annual event and the 4th at the Matterley Bowl in Winchester and they created a town like no other. The Lion’s Den stage moved to a huge natural amphitheatre and saw Shy FX play to 20,000 people on Friday night, the Boombox got bigger & louder and the new Bang Hai Palace was a mind-blowing seven story structure that housed 18,000 rapturous people and a DJ set from Noisia on Saturday night.

We did the video production for the 6th year in a row and alongside the festival production,...

City Hack Bristol Music Video

City Hack is a forward thinking campaign for Desperados where teams of creatives from different cites have been brought together to complete challenges and essentially 'hack' their city. The first challenge was to create a music video to represent their city and we were brought on board to work with the Bristol team to bring their vision for Mediks track 'Original Selecta' to life.

DIY Bristol Skate Update

As part of the ongoing work our creative team is doing with the skate community in Bristol and the South West, we have a double whammy of skate-related news. Back in April we gave you the last session in the abandoned swimming pool before it became Bristol's newest concrete skate facility. The park is now up and running and we have the video evidence to prove it. Our creative director is also coordinating an event for up and coming skaters and video makers alike. Please read on for more info and follow DIY Bristol to keep up to...

Riding the success of Field Day, we headed out to the Peacock Society in Paris to produce the second in the new Resident Advisor series "In Video" . The aim of the article is to give the viewer a chance to feel like they were at the festival, for those that were unfortunate enough to miss out, or for those that attended the festival and wanted to relive their favourite sets.

Field Day 2015 - Resident Advisor Stage Coverage

On a sunny Saturday at the beginning of June, we took a crew over to Victoria Park in East London for Field Day. The large Resident Advisor stage hosted an eclectic selection of artists through out the day including Hudson Mohawke, QT and quite possibly the festival highlight, Run The Jewels.

We shot this all on Canon C300 with five angles to ensure that we got the most out of the day’s coverage, and provided a neat package for the online publication to run a feature on the day.

Glastonbury Silver Hayes 2015

The last weekend of June can only mean one thing for Clockwise Media; it’s time to head on the annual working holiday to Glastonbury. We have been collaborating with the world’s most famous festival for five years now, providing online video content for the Silver Hayes area, previously named the Dance Village.

For the last three years we have been providing a quick fire edit that we turn around on site so as it can be delivered whilst the festival is covered by every news outlet in the world and capitalise on the hype.

As anyone who regularly...

Behind The Scenes At The Campus Pool Party Skate Edit

Clockwise Media may have been born filming club nights and music acts around Bristol but back in the day, it was all about skateboarding. We were stoked to get the chance to use our professional skills to make an old school skate jam video edit at the old Bishopswprth swimming pool in Bristol. The guys behind Campus skatepark have raised money and are about to turn this derelict building into a brand new indoor skate par so we went to tear it up before they tear it down!

Seventeen years ago we were all about the fisheye but these...

Clockwise Media and Colston Hall Party at the Houses of Parliament

We’ve been working with Colston Hall in Bristol for the last year, making content for the marketing team. Recently we have been producing the videos for the huge Transformation project in order to help them raise £45 million in funding to modernise the venue.

On February 10th, some of the Clockwise Bristol team, along with a team from Colston Hall, headed up to the Houses of Parliament to meet with MPs, talk about the project and listen to a performances from Mercury Prize-nominated singer-songwriter Seth Lakeman.  

The boys jumped on the (party) bus armed with the Canon...
