We were approached by Glan Agua to produce a corporate video to tell the story of their construction project; The Cavan Waste Water Treatment Plant.
On the surface, we didn’t know what to expect with this project. We quickly learned that there was more to this construction than what was obvious on the surface. In fact it was a fascinating project to learn about and work on. Having spent some time with the project team leaders we discovered what was important about this particular treatment plant. Glan Agua have employed some innovative technology on the site to deal with the effluent. Their use of a vacuum de-gassing system is the first of it’s kind in Ireland and the UK. Further to this, their project management brought the plant online ahead of schedule and under budget. This was all achieved while delivering an incredible quality of water to the Cavan river.
Engineering Video Production
We worked to highlight these many qualities and successes in our video production. We interviewed a number of key contributors for the piece to tell the story. Aerial video was used to showcase the site and how it was integrated into the landscape. 3D graphics we created to help illustrate some of the innovative design and mechanics of the project. We scripted and commissioned a voice over for the piece to guide the audience through the project and add context to the content.
Corporate Video Production Glan Agua
The client was delighted that we could help distil all the information they provided to us, and finally create a coherent and watchable video. They felt we helped to make the process of video production easy and accessible for them. We feel this video efficiently and emotively tells the story of the successful construction and management of the plant in a way anyone can appreciate.
Corporate Web Video Wedding Band Association (WBA)
Corporate Video featuring Andrea Hayes on Green Screen
Our recent work with various wedding bands brought us in contact with the Wedding Band Association. They were seeking to create a corporate web video for their new website. The video is intended to help summarise what the WBA offer couples seeking to book a band for their wedding.
Cathal from the WBA made contact with the talented Andrea Hayes who agreed to present for the video. We shot the video at Film Equipment Hire, who have a great infinity Green Screen studio upstairs.
Andrea has a wealth of experience as a TV presenter as well as radio and commercial work. She was a real professional and really nailed the script. She gave us lots of options in her delivery, as you will see from the video.
Series of Corporate Web Videos for Le MagIT and IBM MaaS360
Le MagIT IBM Corporate Video Shoot
We recently completed a series of corporate web videos for French technology magazine Le MagIT in partnership with IBM.
This shoot brought us out to IBM’s Technology Campus in Dublin, somewhere none of us here at Kerbute have ever had the chance to see before, and it turned out to be a very interesting experience for us all. The IBM buildings are quite imposing from the outside, but inside are full of buzz and activity. The busy location provided an appropriate backdrop for this series of corporate web videos.
The series of videos are all in French and feature Le MagIT’s Christophe Bardy in conversation with IBM’s Adrien Chepeau about their MaaS360 product. MaaS360 is a Enterprise level Mobility Management system that provides security for mobile devices and apps.
For more information about MaaS360 see the IBM website.

We had the privilege of being invited to the rehearsals for this years annual Rock Against MS in Los Angeles thanks to the Bass legend that is Tanya O Callaghan. And us being ourselves, we couldn’t help but get stuck in and do what we could to help; and what do we do best but make videos?
The Rock Against MS is a great cause, with the LA gigs being run by the indomitable Nancy B Sayle. This is it’s third year. It annually hosts some of the biggest names in Rock Music, and this year was no exception with Billy Sheehan, Joel Hoekstra from Whitesnake and Stephen Perkins from Jane’s Addiction all signed up. The gigs are intended to raise funds and awareness for the Rock Against MS foundation.
We got to hear all the acts rehearsing and putting together their tracks for next Thursday night down at SIR (Studio Instrument Rentals), one of LA’s most famous rehearsal spaces, and rental houses. All the musicians were signing some great merchandise which will be up for grabs on Thursday. Schecter Guitars donated two beautiful axes which you will see in the promotional video. and there’s tons of drum heads, guitar picks and so on.
What an experience getting to hang out with these legends. All in all we shot 12 little video snippets calling people to come and support the cause down at the Whiskey A Go Go. And rumours have it that there may be one other huge rock star showing up on the night, but I won’t breath a word. You’ll have to see for yourself on the night (EDIT: So Taylor Hawkins turned up and sang a David Bowie tune. Aaamaaazzinnng!!) .
Studio Music Video for Country Music Artist Jade Mya
So this October proved to be a wild month for us here at Kerbute. Following on from our exciting summer adventure at the Recording Festival in Grouse Lodge, we were invited to Toronto to shoot a series of studio music videos for country music artist Jade Mya.
We were invited over by her Producer Douglas Romanow, whom we met at the Festival. He’s a very accomplished and talented Music Producer, and has a host of pop and country music credits to his name. As well as being a producer and composer, he is the Musical Director for the Canadian Country Music Awards, and a very talented artist in his own right. We had spoke about the possibility of shooting a studio music video in Toronto with one of his artists when we met – an idea that excited us very much as you can imagine. We all kept in touch, and true to his word he soon followed up with an introduction to the stunning and talented Jade Mya.
We flew over to Toronto for a week in mid October, just as the leaves were turning their glorious fall colours. The music videos were shot in downtown Toronto at Noble Street Studios; state of the art, built for purpose studios that have hosted artists like Will Smith, Justin Bieber, Drake and Kiesza to name a few. What a stunning building, and what a great experience! We also did some outdoor EPK stuff with Jade in the autumn colours of High Park, which you may get to see at some stage.
Jade is a born star, gorgeous on camera and gorgeous in personality too. She has a grace and presence in person, and a burning passion for country music. Jade is an experienced model, fitness queen and philanthropist and is quickly becoming an in-demand country singer.
Despite being a little tight for time (both Jade and Douglas are not short of ambition) the video shoot was tremendous fun and quite relaxed thanks to Jade, Douglas and his crew at Noble Street.
This is the first of four music videos to be released from the session; a cover of ‘Shotgun’ feat. Christina Aguilera fro the show Nashville.
Yet more great options for those seeking wedding or party bands in Ireland, our latest video for ‘Top Of The Popz’ – one of Ireland’s most exciting Party Bands.
This was a great shoot which took place in Kildare in December. The band are talented, professional and full of enthusiasm.
For the shoot we rolled out the Movi M10 from Movi.ie yet again, this time running the Sony A7s supplied by Film Equipment Hire, who also provided our lighting and lenses. As with our last few shoots, once everything was set up we were able to work through the various shots and takes quite quickly. We find this helps keep the energy up for the band and the crew.
Big thanks to Cathal Molloy for providing playback during the shoot, as well as keeping a shot log for us – on top of organising the venue etc! A true gent.
We’re looking forward to what 2015 has on the horizon, with plenty of exciting shoots already in the pipe.
