Health, Safety & The Environment
Kier asked Humanoid to capture the highlights and atmosphere at their “Health, Safety and The Environment” week in Telford.
Humanoid shot an event video over two days, with interviews and B-roll summarising the week’s events for social media.
The video was well-received, and Kier immediately commissioned Humanoid to document their work on Spaghetti Junction.
Humanoid went behind the scenes at a Kier Strategic Highways depot in Telford, as they opened their doors to the public and demonstrated the technology and processes that keep our road network open year-round.
Kier discovered Humanoid after a recommendation by WJ Group, and brought us in to create an event highlights edit for social media. The purpose of the week was to familiarise both the industry and the public with the work that contractors do on Britain’s roads — so the event was attended by everyone from high-profile industry leaders to local schoolchildren.
Humanoid’s crew captured interviews with key organisers and guests, including delegates from JCB, Highways England and the Police.
A number of technical demonstrations were performed in front of the crowd, including a simulated crash and recovery, from road closure to repairs and re-opening. Humanoid shot the scenario from a number of angles including the air, to capture the full sequence of events.
After that, our crews followed groups of guests around various exhibits, where the children were able to dig for electical cables in sand, experiment with fibreoptic cameras and get hands-on by building environmental bird feeders and water filtration systems.
“Not every company puts this level of effort into public awareness and environmental responsibility, so it’s great to see — not only the number of organisations taking part, but also the enthusiasm of the attendees. It comes across throughout the video, and it made our job on the day much easier!”
-Martyn Lomax, Humanoid’s Managing Director
Kier received the video very positively, and brought Humanoid in weeks later to capture the much larger-scale project of their work on Birmingham’s Spaghetti Junction.
