BVE North 2011
BVE North organisers asked Humanoid to shoot a highlights video of their first annual expo. The top priority was to capture the atmosphere, with a focus on the range of exhibitors and the key benefits of a northern show.
We used two small, mobile crews: one to conduct interviews and the other to shoot supporting footage of displays and activity. The shoot was completed within a single day, and the top priority edit delivered a few days later.
The 5-minute video features every major exhibitor and interviews with organisers, guests, speakers and exhibitors. It was completed within a week of the show, and released while BVE North was still in the headlines.
Humanoid were in attendance as the Broadcast Video Expo left London for the first time with the inaugural BVE North event at Manchester Central.
Shooting footage for event organisers EMAP, Humanoid’s two camera crews captured the buzz of excitement over the move north, speaking with representatives of major broadcast technology companies, seminar presenters, exhibitors and a handful of the 2400 professional attendees.
The 2-day event featured 36 free seminars, including a talk from acclaimed director Shane Meadows on digital film making. Over 90 of the top industry names were exhibiting, including 26 new product launches.
“It really is a necessity that BVE’s up here, representing those manufacturers, resellers and dealers from around the UK, really focusing them in a great city like Manchester”.
—Charlotte Wheeler, Event Director for BVE North
The move north was hugely popular with attendees; many interviewees commented on the talent in the region, the link to MediaCityUK and the “northern welcome”. “Quite frankly,” exhibitor Eric Joseph told the cameras, “this show’s been a hit!”
