What we’ve been up to during lockdown

The UK has been in lockdown for almost three months now, and we’ve all had to make some changes to our daily lives. For the IJP team this has been saying a temporary goodbye to our lovely office, and saying hello to homemade coffee. Not quite as great as the coffee at our fellow social enterprise and neighbours’, The Dusty Knuckle but needs must!

And though we’ve only just started to shoot safely in person again, we’ve still made some pretty cool films whilst in lockdown.

Our latest film was made for the Enfield Carers Centre to celebrate the hard work their carers and volunteers have been doing, especially under the challenging circumstances of lockdown.

One of our creative directors and editors, Martin Scanlan, used user-generated content and cleverly edited motion graphics to create the film.

We also created a film for the Children First Academy Trust using the same format to bring together their schools’ communities and showcase what students and teachers have been up to during lockdown.

We’ve loved creating these films and highlighting these organisations’ community spirit. Now that it’s safer to do so, we’re able to send small crews out for in-person filming. We’ve kept an eye on government advice and the PACT Production Guidance page. We’ve created our own safe working practise guidelines so we can film as safely as possible.

We’re always open to talking about new ideas for films and animations, so do get in touch with the team at info@insidejobproductions.co.uk if you have a message you’d like to get out. We can send over our full COVID-19 safe working practise guidelines upon request.
