Having a record of your launch, conference, talk or activities, is increasingly important. Whether it is for archive purposes, as a way to showcase your work, for use in reports, to add value to your bids or to upload to your social media channels, it is worth the investment. Film and photography also provide an opportunity for you to control your narrative and reflect the beneficiaries of your services or your target audience.
Words of Colour has worked with scores of organisations over the years, providing photography, film and also audio services.
With photography, we cover all styles from press shots to documentary to events.
We have made short films, filmed conferences and live events, and can make viral films for social media.
Alongside our talented inhouse team, we have access to a pool of experienced and talented videographers and photographers.
We Are Family trailer. This 30 minute film was created to raise awareness of kidney donation in the African Caribbean community. Directed by Joy Francis and written and produced by Dela Idowu, Gift of Living Donation.
Playing Up 2016, National Youth Theatre. Since 2010, the pioneering and influential National Youth Theatre has run Playing Up, a 10 month accredited programme in theatre arts for young people not in education, training or employment. Words of Colour Productions was invited to film the rehearsals at Arcola Theatre for two productions – Ripple and Besieged – and interviewed students, directors and playwright Aisha Zia.
The Resolving Chaos Project. This short film is about the work of Resolving Chaos, an innovative project run by You First, from the perspective of its beneficiaries, people with combinations of housing, mental health, substance misuse and offending problems, and who are often described as having ‘multiple or ‘complex’ needs. The film premiered at City Hall.
Working with Words of Colour on our Great Sports Debate with leading athletes, such as Christine Ohuruogu MBE who they secured for us, was very enjoyable and insightful. Their easy going but very professional attitude helped accommodate an understanding of the audiences we were targeting and ensured there was good content, including great photography by Lee Townsend. I would recommend Words of Colour as a partner organisation to work with.
