Autism Family Support Oxfordshire helps young people with autism, and their families, cope with the many challenges that this condition presents.

AFSO commissioned Blue Lotus Media to produce a video showing examples of their work to help persuade potential sponsors to make contact with the charity as a first step to providing financial support to their projects.


Sylva Foundation

The Sylva Foundation is an environmental charity that aims to revive Britain’s wood culture by encouraging better and wiser use of our forests and woodlands. 

Working closely with their Head of Fundraising and Development and with their Chief Executive, Blue Lotus Media helped to develop, then film and edit, a storyline that would showcase four main areas of Sylva’s activity through a series of location interviews with teachers, academics, foresters and commercial craftsmen who are collaborating with them.


Oxford Radcliffe Hospitals Charitable Funds

Oxford Radcliffe Hospitals Charitable Funds raises donations for Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

In November 2015, they launched the Hidden Heroes Appeal to raise funds for areas of their health care that are often hidden from public view, such as anaesthetists and radiologists, but which are none the less vital to looking after patients.

The appeal’s launch event was a concert by the Radcliffe Orchestra (the players are all members of staff at the University hospitals) featuring pieces by Schubert, Mozart and Mendelssohn.

The Matrix Arts Centre and Music School at Sutton Courtenay is part of the worldwide Yamaha Music School franchise. We were commissioned by Matrix to produce a video aimed at parents of children completing the Junior Music Course which encouraged them to sign up for the following Junior Extension Course.

We interviewed teachers and parents about what the Junior Extension Course offers students, and showed current students practising at home and learning in class to give a flavour of what they could expect.


Economic and Social Research Council

The Open University Business School (OUBS) and Nottingham Business School (NBS) are co-organisers of the ESRC’s seminar series, ‘Green Innovation: Making it Work’. We were commissioned by the OUBS and NBS to make a video of the first seminar, in April 2015, as an advert for the rest of the series. The target audience were academics, research students and practitioners in industry and commerce.


Davis Tate Estate Agents

https://vimeo.com/127547035

Davis Tate is a network of estate agents located across the Thames Valley region. Their Abingdon branch approached Blue Lotus Media to produce a video that introduced potential customers to Davis Tate’s particular service ethic and way of doing business. We incorporated messages from members of their management team with testimonial interviews with past customers.

 


Wallers of Oxford Estate Agents

https://vimeo.com/125027182

We were asked to produce a series of property tour videos for this recently established Oxford estate agent. They needed to have a short running time (about one minute each) and to give enough of a taster to potential buyers that they booked a viewing.

 


Chipping Norton Farmers’ Market

https://vimeo.com/125021610

This is a monthly market run by the Thames Valley Farmers’ Market Co-operative tvfm.org.uk. The short documentary centres on interviews with several of the regular stallholders at Chipping Norton. Many great characters and much great produce!


Wavecloud Swim School

https://vimeo.com/124944211

This swimming school uses a highly effective teaching technique that is very popular in the USA, but so far has only been taken up by a handful of swimming instructors in the UK. Our brief was to produce a sales video that showed the success of their unique method and therefore generate more enquiries and ultimately more students for the business. It achieved both!


Abingdon Christmas Extravaganza 2014

https://vimeo.com/124955497

At the end of November each year, the centre of Abingdon is taken over by market stalls of all sorts, music groups and other live entertainment. It culminates in the switching on of the Christmas lights in the Market Square, followed by a fireworks display.
