Music Video London – 1914 Carol of Christmas

 In Charity Film, Making Of, music video

A proven track record in professional music videos

On November 10th 2015 Film Director Greg Goodall was approached and asked to come up with a creative viral video concept to support a serious attempt at a high profile Christmas Number One effort in order to gain maximum exposure for the  3 leading military welfare charities. The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity, ABF The Soldiers’ Charity and the RAF Benevolent Fund.

This particular music video was for a song that was called ‘1914 The Carol of Christmas’ written by Chris Eaton (the same guy who wrote Saviour’s Day a former Christmas number one held by Cliff Richards). It was sung by Military Voices. Time was extremely short and Greg and the team set to it straight away coming up with the concept in under 24 hours. The concept required the team and producers to secure a number of high profile locations (including Westminster Abbey at the grave of the unknown soldier) to be filmed at in a very short time to get the music video out there and give it the best chance possible of getting the exposure it deserved.

Long story short after Creating, Producing, Shooting the film in a 30 minute time window at Westminster Abbey, Directing and producing it… it was live in just under 3 weeks.

The video saw 4 thousand views in the first hour of it being launched!! It went Viral and a huge number of celebrities got behind it, Stephen Fry, Bear Grylls, Sir Clive Woodward and Sir Terry Wogan to mention but a few.

After supporting the project until its end we found ourselves working on Live broadcast from the BBC, Visiting BBC Breakfast, dropping off a copy of the single at Number 10 Downing Street and taking part in a huge number of press calls. The song made it to number 4 in the UK independent charts and spent time at the number 1 spot on the iTunes download list so all in all a massive success.
