What we got up to during lockdown

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

And though we are now shooting safely in person again, we still made some pretty cool charity films whilst in lockdown.

One such charity film was made for the Enfield Carers Centre to celebrate the hard work their carers and volunteers have done, 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 got up to during lockdown.

We loved creating these films in our lockdown hibernation and being able to highlight these organisations’ community spirit. Once it was safer to do so, we were able to send small crews out for in-person filming, while keeping an eye on government advice and the PACT Production Guidance page. We have since created our own safe working practise guidelines so we can film as safely as possible, whatever the circumstances.

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