Bluecoat Productions is a Bristol-based video production company run by Chris Hyland and Hari Newnham.
We are creative, motivated people who work with a range of clients to make high quality promotional videos,
short films and live event videos.
Colin: Portrait of a School Chef is a short documentary video Chris shot in a day about the catering manager at QEH. It aimed to explore his experiences before coming to QEH, the catering at the school, and why he does what he does. It is the first time he has shot a piece with the intention of letterboxing in post (by putting black tape on his GH3's screen!), and he thinks it worked well along with using FilmConvert to quickly add a subtle grade at giving a 'film' look and feel. This is perhaps the most 'documentary style' video we have made yet, the narrative being interview driven, which was a fun new style to attempt.
