ICL - Meet Our People Documentaries

Project: ICL - Meet Our People [Documentaries]

ICL is an international mining and chemicals company, specialising in fertilisers.

ICLs marketing team, Lab Rat Creative, came to us looking for a series of talking head films that shared the story of their employees and what they do.

After our first few meetings, we decided to produce documentaries, instead of taking heads, as this would allow us to go into more depth and show the full breadth of what it is like working at ICL.

This project has a three month turn around, with the first month focusing on finding the documentary subjects, and developing a story and strategy. We scripted each film and produced shot lists ready for filming.

Our production stage took in total 6 days to get every shot required for the film. On day one, we worked with Dronecam Solutions, to get all of the aerial footage, with the rest of the days dedicated to documenting our interview subjects lives.

Finally, the post-production and delivery stage took a total of 1 month, from editing, to colour grading and sound design.

The end product was two short documentary films, as well as 10 1-minute highlight pieces to be used in their social media marketing campaigns.

We are aiming to make this a more regular series of videos in the near future, so stay tuned.

The team at Volta Media have a clear passion for film and this becomes even more evident in the work that is produced. They are knowledgeable, professional and produce quality work.
