2022, what a ride. Harry’s House broke the internet, Maverick was in, Musk was out, and remember that Oscars slap? Enough with the chit-chat, that’s not why we’re here, or you for that matter (nosey). Get comfy. Help yourself to a mega pint or negroni sbagliato and cue the NV highlights…
In honour of Hull City’s all-time record goalscorer, who definitely wouldn’t have missed that penalty against France in the quarter-final, but, we digress… MKM stadium launched the new Chris Chilton Stand and in collaboration with Hull City’s marketing team, we took to the pitch to shoot with former Hull City player, Keane Lewis-Potter to capture content to celebrate.
We’re always gunning for gold. And then some. When the University of Hull asked us to work on a project with Team GB, we bolted out of our seats faster than Usain’s PB. Before we knew it, we were down in the big smoke capturing employees and athletes at Team GB HQ. It was as impressive as it sounds.
THERE’S MORE OF US
The team grew, as we welcomed our new apprentice, Ben, with open arms. He’s smashed it out the park since day one, diving feet-first into projects. There’s an extra drink to make on the tea run now, but he puts the ‘pro’ in Junior Content Producer, so we guess he can stay.
TRUST AND SHOUT
We’ve been belting out bangers by The Beatles since before we could walk, so this was definitely a ‘pinch us, we’re dreaming’ project. Armed with the best greatest hits playlist we could find on Spotify, the team travelled to ‘The Fab Four’s’ stomping ground to visit and produce video tours of Paul McCartney and John Lennon’s childhood homes for the National Trust.
WE GOT SOCIAL IRL
Working from home was a thing of the past and obviously we made up for lost time. There were tons of NV team socials in 2022 but tackling Ninja Warrior in Leeds and seeing who could set the fastest go-karting lap are standouts in the social calendar. Work hard, play hard.
SET UP, SWITCH UP
Point and shoot, meh. Point of view, yeh! Continuing our streak of doing things differently, we crafted a whole new helmet cam setup to shoot some next-level action shots for a project with Hull City. ‘Astronaut’ and ‘Deep Sea Diver’ were just some of the compliments Gus received when rocking this rig.
WHOOP WHOOP IT’S THE SOUND OF…
Humberside Police. We joined forces with the Police and Crime Commissioner for another project. Our task? Create and capture arresting content, showcasing the invaluable work that goes on behind closed doors in police custody. The verdict? Guilty as charged.
We celebrated 365 days of Emilia, aka our Content Producer, who has been part of the NV team for one whole year. We can’t believe it either. Feels like yesterday. Editing. Shooting. TikToking – you name it. Emilia does it and turns it up to 11 every time.
MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN
We hit the town with the man, the myth, the legend, Dean Windass, shooting his favourite Hull spots for a project with Betboo. Chip spice? You betcha. White phone boxes? Duh. Where to get the best pint in town? You’ll have to watch to find out.
We made the cut. Being shortlisted for our customer focus at the Hull Live Business Awards was definitely a highlight. Not only were we up for an award, it was NV’s fourth year on the bounce working with Reach PLC to film the finalist reels that feature at the event.
36 interviews and 14 films. Completed it, including our own. After weeks of solid shooting and endless editing, the team let their hair down. It’s the taking part that counts, right?
We packed up our gear and headed to Warwickshire to produce a lifestyle advert for Opera Beds, who were an absolute dream to work with. Get it? Our final big shoot of the year was for a bed manufacturer – oh the irony. We can’t wait to see the final edit but we’re definitely ready for some shut-eye during the Christmas break.
It’s been wild. 2023? Bring it on!
