Birdsnest – An Australian Wool Story

THE BRIEF

Birdsnest came up with a great idea of creating a film which showcased the benefits of wool as told from the producers eyes and not the fashion models. We wanted to show the product as it came off the sheep’s back and ended up on the back of a fashion model and available for sale through Birdsnest. The best way to do this was to combine a fashion shoot with a grazing story so we could bring both worlds together.

THE SOLUTION

Clients come to us in all stages of readiness. For this project, Birdsnest approached Square Fish with a script already written by Oli (a Monaro sheep grazier). We worked on a shoot schedule and spent the morning with Oli (and son Arthur) as they moved some sheep into the yards.

Working to the script, our models arrived in the afternoon and we filmed them through Oli’s perspective.

THEY SAID WHAT?

Hamish is not only a fine producer of entertaining commercial videos, but is also a highly professional video storyteller. I have dealt with him for years and he excelled himself twelve months ago in producing a video for waverleystation.com. It communicated far better for Waverley than anything preceding it and attracted over 25,000 viewers on social media.

A pleasure to work with! Hamish and the team at Square Fish have a knack for taking your vision and bringing it to life through video in a professional yet stunningly beautiful way. Looking forward to continuing to work with Square Fish on future projects.

Hamish at Square Fish took on my project and invested his energy into making sure it met all my requirements. His ability to visualise and encapsulate the story and then put this into a video is a true art. The quality of the images captured in the short time frame was amazing and I would highly recommend Hamish to anyone looking to use his services.

Hamish and Square Fish are hands down the best video production company I’ve ever worked with. Fast turnaround, competitive quoting, and a super pleasure to deal with. But most of all, Hamish gets it right every time. Once the briefing is done – whether it’s a series of interviews, a corporate promotional video or a launch event highlights reel – the result is delivered fast and with just the right grabs and content selected. There is rarely any need to go back for a second edit. If I had to guess the Square Fish motto, I would say it’s “get it right first time”.

Hamish did an amazing job of capturing our family story so authentically. We are so pleased with the finished product and the response to our video has been overwhelming.

Square Fish have delivered some incredible work for our live music projects. Hamish and the Square Fish team were always accommodating and agile, which was essential to make our tight deadlines work. Despite some difficult timelines and moving targets, the content was always delivered on time, at consistently a high standard and met the brief. We wouldn’t hesitate to use Square Fish again in the future.
