Two films produced with the support of Team, that give a step by step guide to buying and selling your home. Director Simon J Frith. Camera Peter Curtis.
A promotional film for Essex based estate agency, Omega Properties.
A celebration of rural life in Lincolnshire and a focused exploration of how the housing issue is being tackled.
Deadline was asked by the Lincoln Rural Affordable Housing Partnership and Community Lincs to make a film that could help them in their campaign to create more affordable homes.
The result, “Living Lincolnshire – Affordable Homes for Thriving Rural Communities”, is both a celebration of rural life in the county and a focused exploration of how the housing issue is being tackled.
The film speaks to ordinary residents but also acts as a detailed primer for local councillors and other parties interested in starting their own affordable housing scheme.
As well as dispelling the negative myths that can sometime surround the concept of affordable housing, the film shows how successful schemes are the result of a unique and sophisticated collaboration between local authorities, parish councils, landowners, housing associations and the entire rural community.
All aspects are explored, from the challenges and complexities of funding to the vital coordinating role played by Lincolnshire’s Rural Housing Enablers.
The script was developed by Deadline in close consultation with the client. The final film weaves voiceover, graphics and sumptuous footage of rural Lincolnshire life with perspectives from all those involved, including the villagers whose lives have been immeasurably improved by affordable housing.
Verdict from the client:
“Hi Simon – I would like to add my thanks and those of the members of the Partnership. From the start to the finish your and your colleagues’ advice, patience and sensitivity to the issues and towards the people being filmed has been outstanding. The final video does everything we asked, conveying the value of rural affordable housing and how it’s produced in an engaging and accessible way.”
