The Ellen MacArthur Foundation has a global reach and effective communications are crucial in sharing our mission to develop a circular economy. We have a dedicated digital comms team that manages our output and measures impact. We consulted with Reel in order to review our existing communications strategy and develop outreach through smartphone filmmaking. With events around the world and ample content creation opportunities, video shorts provide a way to better engage our audience and attract new interest. Reel's insight was eye-opening and relevant to our requirements. It’s rare to come across an organisation that can offer contextualised strategic advice as well as practical, technical output.

In the run up to the World Cup 2014 we wanted to create an online exhibition that told the story of the World Cup through 24 historic objects housed at the museum. The question was how? We consulted with Reel who devised an interactive multimedia online gallery that mixed audio, video and high res imagery. Normally this kind of thing would have been completely outside of our budget but Reel achieved this through the innovative use of smartphone technology. In essence all content for the gallery was produced using an array of mobile apps. It is safe to say this project would not have gone ahead without the fantastic solution provided by Reel.

We were on the cusp of launching our crowdfunding campaign but needed a promotional video at very short notice. With so much going on in the run up to the campaign we needed someone with an understanding of our business who could produce a creative contextual video that would offer both substance and style. Reel came high recommended and was able to capture the very essence of our campaign and deliver an outstanding film that played a significant role in helping us triple our funding target! Brilliant!

Benita Matofska / Founder & CEO / Compare and Share

Reel used really creative smartphone technology to create an immersive interactive story telling digital gallery highlighting works by Tracey Emin and other world renowned contemporary artists working across traditional and digital media. The project was superbly executed, on spec and on time; we thoroughly enjoyed working with Reel!

Rory Blain / MD / Sediton Art

We staged a series of twelve 3 minute startup pitches in London and Manchester we wanted filmed, edited and delivered within 24h. As traditional videographers had previously taken too long to produce social media ready video we turned to Reel. We got a unique insight into how smartphone filmmaking offers lightening fast turnaround and creativity whilst maintaining HD quality. Amazing!

Vimla Appadoo / Community Manager / Dot Forge

Reel advised NZF on the strategic use of smartphone content production across our national program of events. This has meant we are now in a position to produce high quality, relevant, impactful and timely content across our social media channels with a greater degree of control, creativity and speed whilst reducing the cost of doing so. Reel were very dedicated and professional in their approach and it was a pleasure to collaborate with them.
