By capturing culture and personalities, a candid day-in-the-life film like this is used to help prospective candidates decide if it’s the right place for them. And help companies like World Courier recruit the right people with the right mindset to carry out this high-risk and high-reward work.
We spent two days getting down and personal with this unique team that is on the verge of mass expansion. And it’s surprising how much employees love talking about their passion for their jobs – when they’re in the right job.
Driven by Purpose
A sense of purpose is fundamental to the staff of this unique logistics company.
Client: World Courier
Sector: Corporate Comms
As more organisations are realising these days, it’s not so much what we do as why we do it. This film looks at the sense of purpose that drives the staff of biopharma logistics company World Courier, every day.
Using a device called EyeDirect that allows interviewees to look directly at camera while seeing the reflection of the interviewer in the lens, we made sure everything was set to get the most heart-felt comments on what was clearly an important issue for all staff at this global company.
As part of a suite of films to draw in the right type of candidate, FICO requested a day-in-the-life film to give candidates an idea of what it’s like to work in this highly pressurised and exciting environment.
Getting an insight into the day to day workings of a company is the best indicator of whether a candidate is going to sink or swim. Working on real time problems that could affect millions of people can put a lot of pressure on a young graduate so FICO wanted to convey both the challenges and the support system in place to help people flourish. To capture all of this Cloud9Media went undercover at their offices to show just what it’s like to work at FICO.
Penguin Publishing Process: The Publicist
Client: Penguin Random House
Sector: Corporate Comms + Arts & Learning
As part of our Behind the Scenes series on the publishing process, we followed Tom to get an insight into the life of a publicist. It is, as you might expect, a very busy one!
We recently got back from the Fontainebleau Hotel, Miami Beach where FICO were hosting their annual conference on Big Data, Artificial Intelligence and business responses to this new changing landscape. This gave us a perfect opportunity to road-test the InstaBooth, our latest innovation in how to engage through video and just one part of a whole package of video content we offered.
The InstaBooth carries the ethos of capturing thoughts on film, asking delegates passing by to take a moment to sit in a comfortable chair and relax, away from the busyness of this buzzing conference. It’s a simple pop-up tent setup equipped with a camera, ring-light and microphone.
