Hopper and Brighton5

By | blog, Front Page, News Feed, Personalised Video System | No Comments

At The Box in Brighton, we have developed another platform called Hopper, where we create personalised videos for businesses to grab their client’s attention and create a more intimate connection. We have recently worked with Brighton5 who aims to ‘give teen girls the resilience, tools and courage to make a difference in their locality in the world’.  In more recent years, gender inequality has become increasingly relevant and noticed in our society, with the #metoo movement and recognition of the gender pay gap (to name a few), and research has found out that 1 in 4 girls suffer from depression by the time they hit 14. Therefore, Brighton5 has implemented a non-profit organisation that creates connections between teenagers and inspiring mentors in order to offer advice and consolation.

So where did we come in? We helped create a personalised video platform for Brighton5 to contact clients personally in order to inform them of the rising crisis in mental health problems amongst teenagers and to gain support for their organisation. After sending out the video, a whopping 25% of the recipients watched it which resulted in contributions to the cause! Because of this achievement, we hope that developing this video for Brighton5 will help make a difference to young teenagers lives and improve the world they live in.

At The Box in Brighton, we were very proud to sponsor yesterday’s MDHub Event, Brave New World! As time goes on the world is changing ever so rapidly, and so is business. Technology is constantly being updated and improved therefore in order to enhance your businesses growth; we must embrace them.

Younger generations are constantly experiencing the new changes to the world, and that’s why businesses need them the most. A fresh outlook on life is perfect for benefiting both students and business leaders alike, learning from each other through different perspectives and understandings of our increasingly automated world is crucial to appreciating how you can develop your businesses growth further in order to target a wider range of audiences.

When discussing the event, MDHub said ‘There was definitely a flurry of bookings but in terms of percentage of bookings based on numbers as of today, it amounts to around 17% that we would assume to be as a direct result of the video in that period’.

Virgin from The Box on Vimeo.

When passing through London Waterloo train station we’ve looked at the huge digital screen across platforms 7-11 (Britain’s largest digital sign) and dreamt of getting our work on it.

Well, this week we did it!

Virgin Media Business asked us to bring their concepts to life for the #VOOM national launch campaign and one of the screens it’s been displayed on includes London Waterloo.

Of course, being so proud of our latest creation we had to grab a couple of clips for THE BOX’s memory box.

Take a look for yourself.

Axelos, the ‘Leaders in global best practice methodologies’, wanted a short film to explain the complexities when changing US presidents. We were asked by the smart folks at Senso communications to create the visuals to go with their eye-opening script.

It turns out we all did such a good job that the Evening standard featured it on their site and Apple picked it up from there.

Take a look below and see for yourself what goes into handing over the reigns to the free world, it’s a lot more effort than you might imagine.
