Filming at Alexandra Palace

This month we had the pleasure of being asked by one of our partners to help film the Excursions exhibition at Alexandra Palace, London.

We needed to travel lightly as we were going around interviewing visitors and exhibitors who attended the exhibition.

Back in the studio we produced 2 edited videos for the client to be used to promote the exhibition for 2018!



Beautiful South Awards 2016

In November last year, we had the pleasure of filming the beautiful South Awards 2016 for one of our valued clients Tourist Network in Southampton.

The Beautiful South Awards were held at the Hilton Hotel of the Ageas Bowl, near Southampton. The ceremony saw TV and radio celebrity Toby Anstis celebrating the cream of the region’s tourism industry.

Supported by headline sponsor Shepherd Neame, the Awards are run by Tourism South East to recognise excellence in the industry.

Well Done to all!

Big Paw Animation and Video filmed the event and helped create the video below for our client.


Filming at London Cocktail Week

Big Paw Animation and Video were asked by one of our clients to do some filming at various events throughout London Cocktail Week in October 2016 to showcase their huge presence at the annual event.

We captured all the exciting action at various bars throughout the city aswell as The Cocktail Village in Old Spitalfields Market and the Bombay Sapphire VIP party at The Ace Hotel. It was a BUSY yet exciting week out of the office!




The aim was to create a video which incorporates motion graphics, basic animation and footage for our client to showcase their activities and achievements at London Cocktail Week in time for a conference.


Animation: Should it cost the earth?

It is a common misconception that high quality animation requires a substantial budget and is confined to the realms of large brands and marketing agencies with their big campaigns.

Adele John is the lead animator at Big Paw Animation in Southampton and has noticed that over the last decade the cost of producing an animated corporate video has been driven down by advances in hardware and software technology.

“A large number of our projects are B2B so many of our customers come to us with no knowledge about animation, the processes and the costs associated. At Big Paw we initially like to educate our clients on what is involved and the technology used, so they have a better idea of what can be achieved on any budget.”

Big Paw encourages their clients to think about how animation can be applied specifically to their business, and realise that it is a hugely powerful and engaging media that when used efficiently can assist in the visualisation of a service or product. Adele is trained and qualified in the art of classical animation and states that the processes involved in animation production have moved on dramatically since the advances of computer processor speeds and GPU rendering.

“Back in the 1930s at Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, USA they would have painstakingly drawn out every frame on a light box, inked in the cells and then captured the images using a rostrum camera. However, now in the 21st century processes can be streamlined with the use of graphics tablets, computers and even motion capture. Every animator in the industry needs to embrace this move and adapt their skill to keep up with technology.”
