Typhoon Haiyan and Philippines in the media

It's been a week since super typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines and the storm is still dominating the news.  Some of the major headlines have been about the effectiveness of the DEC (Disasters Emergency Committee) to raise money and provide aid.  The DEC consists of 14 charities that have united in attempt to quickly get aid to the survivors.  Every member charity had “standing emergency funds” to “get things moving in the first hours after a disaster,” a DEC spokesman said.  The charities used reserves to send more aid in a swift manner, which the DEC will later replace once they examine t

Anatomy of a production - the process behind CAFOD's One day, one world

A warm spring day in May 2012 saw us sat round a table at CAFOD, bouncing ideas around for the remake of a film that looks at a day in the life of a child both in the UK and in Bangladesh. Scroll forward 15 months and we’re looking at a 10 minutes film, an A3 book, some successfully delivered training and overall an effective resource for schools. It’s been a long journey, with a lot of fun, enjoyment and great connections and inevitably a few snags along the way – here’s our journey from concept to completion.

Great Ormond Street Hospital GO Create! Arts Video

Our latest production for Great Ormond Street Hospital shows the positive difference their GO Create! Arts programme is having on children, families and staff in the hospital.  Through GO Create! the hospital aims to create relaxing, engaging and child-friendly surroundings and support creativity and learning through a wide range of activities from visual arts to music, dance and creative workshops. In the video we wanted to capture the vital contribution GO Create!

Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity Fundraising Film

We've just completed our third video for Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity. It's been great working with them and helping the charity to promote how they’re making a difference and why they need more support.  We loved creating the ‘Why we need your help’ video as this film is a key way of communicating with their supporters where their money goes and why their donations are so important.

Super fast filming and production in Truro

2 days, 48hrs, 10 subjects and a 15 minute video - the heat was on recently for Purple Flame at Truro school to complete a fast turnaround of filming and production for their World AIMS 'Disaster days'...would we survive the challenge and have everything ready to play out or would we face our own mini disaster...?!

CSR after the Bangladesh factory tragedy

Since my last blog about the Rana Plaza factory tragedy in Bangladesh which exposed the unsafe working conditions that garment workers endure across the developing world, the disaster has led to more discussion about what behaving responsibly means.  Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is in the news headlines but what will really change after such a widely publicised tragedy?

Creating a successful charity video

We’ve been producing films for over thirteen years and we truly believe in the power of a video to help charities be seen, heard & understood. A compelling film will help you tell your story and engage with supporters. However, as more and more charities are creating video content, the bar is being raised and now you need a video which doesn’t just tell your story but which stands out too. To us at at Purple Flame Media that means creating strong content that engages with target audiences.
