Filming what can’t be filmed
The Head of Marketing came to Rocket with an unusual requirement. To produce a recruitment video that portrayed the culture of the people and business and gave a sense of what it’s like to work for the company.
In addition, they needed a way to communicate important company messages to staff spread across the UK including high security drivers with no access to email or mobile phone.
Rocket proposed interviewing key people in a relaxed, casual environment, asking pertinent questions to coax out the golden nuggets of information that would bring life to the video. Rocket could then bring in an experienced team of actors – brief, manage and direct them to achieve a convincing result.
Conscious of the fact that they were dealing with real people’s feelings and that the end result needed to be believable, Rocket produced a script based on these interviews, keeping true to what had originally been said as much as possible.
'If there's a job that's going to require a little bit extra, they'll always give me that'
Knowing that business doesn’t stop for a video to be made, Rocket bring the studio and everyone involved to their UK headquarters in Hatfield, making the process as fast and pain free as possible. To provide even more flexibility, Rocket work around director’s meetings and when necessary operate over weekends to minimise disruption.
‘The guys always bend over backwards to support us and enable us to hit tight schedules and within budget’
