GINGERBEARD Media at Youth Focus Talking About Go Pros

As part of our business structure and commitment to working within the local community, you may already be aware that we try and work with not-for-profit and charitable organisations.

One not-for-profit organisation who has kindly invited us in to work with them is Youth Focus.

Youth Focus is a West Australian organisation that aims to put a stop to youth suicide. They are a unique organisation that supports vulnerable young people in Western Australia by offering a range of mental health services. Their team of highly trained and skilled psychologists, social workers and occupational therapists to provide a range of early intervention and prevention services free of charge, aimed at supporting young people and their families to overcome the issues associated with suicide, depression and self harm.

In a few weeks time 10 young people and 3 people from Youth Focus will head over to Papua New Guinea to tackle a 10-day trek of the Kokoda Trail. It will be a massive personal journey for them to undertake and complete.

 

So how is GINGERBEARD Media involved?

Well, Youth Focus have been kindly provided with 10 Go Pros, however they need someone to pull the footage together when they return. So we offered our services.

But upon chatting with the organisers, we also decided that it was worthwhile running the hikers through all the basics of the camera so that the guys could capture the best footage they could.

So we headed over to meet them and run them through an hour long info session - which you can find recorded below.

We wish those making the journey our very best, we can't wait to see what footage and stories you come back with!


Primal Throwdown 2014 Online Wildcard WOD 3

Final week, final workout video for the Primal Series. It's been great working with the guys from Southern CrossFit, who run the Primal Throwdown, to produce these videos.

Each year they seem to challenge us to produce better and better videos. This year's challenge really surrounded the animations as well as still working within a very quick turnaround schedule.

Personally, we think the animations really add to these videos; helping to demonstrate the acceptable and unacceptable standards for this competition and that are needed to run an online competition in general.


Primal Throwdown 2014 Online Wildcard WOD 2

OK, so here we go again - another week, another Primal Throwdown video.

It's the second week in the online competition that the guys at The Primal Series are running. Just like last week they needed an "explainer" video to detail everything that the athletes needed to know.

We're already looking forward to shooting and releasing the last of the series!


Primal Throwdown 2014 Online Wildcard WOD 1

The guys from The Primal Series are currently running a 3-week online workout competition, the winners of which will be invited to come an compete at the Primal Throwdown 2014.

The main problem with any competition is explaining the workouts so that everyone understands the standards and requirements. And with an online competition that only gets worse as there is no direct and immediate feedback.

So they asked us to prepare a video helping them explain the standards to their athletes. 

We're especially happy with this "explainer" video as it gave us a chance to demonstrate some of the animation which can be added to video to help illustrate key points and messages.
