Heehaw’s BBC Children in Need video plays at Radio 1 Big Weekend

In the last year, BBC Children in Need has helped change the lives of more than 50,000 children and young people living in Scotland, 18,000 of them living in Glasgow. Heehaw was delighted to be asked by BBC Children in Need to produce a short film which celebrated and raised awareness of their involvement in projects based in Glasgow.

The short film ‘Celebrating Glasgow’ was broadcast on giant screens by the main stage of Radio 1’s Big Weekend Event to a crowd of 25,000.

Nick Mulliner from BBC Children in need said: “Beautifully filmed and well edited, this short film serves as a snapshot to the projects & children and young people that BBC Children in Need support in Glasgow. Easy to work with throughout and in a very short space of time, Heehaw have done a fantastic job. I hope that we can work together on another project soon!”

Tech of 2014 – What’s Happening With Video

At Heehaw we love a bit of tech and 2014 is shaping up to be a big year. Rise of the machines big.

Below we have outlined some of the more exciting prospects on the horizon; there’s bound to be the familiar faces, but we think there’s a strong possibility 2014 will be characterised by the indie developer. These small producers (often crowd funded) can push boundaries far quicker than the behemoths that have held onto power for so long, drip feeding us our megapixels, bits and proverbial bobs.

We’ve seen hints of this already – with the likes of Blackmagic arriving on the camera scene, the buzz surrounding Phoneblocks (a modular Smartphone concept), new-guy lens producers SLR Magic and this little gem of a camera to name a few. Here’s hoping 2014 will take this wave of innovation to the next level.

Heehaw Behind the Scenes – Roller Derby


Our amazing staff get up to some brilliant extra curricular activities: Video Production Coordinator Dee Custance on… Roller Derby.

The extreme full contact sport of Roller Derby in the UK in the past 5 years has taken off but in the last year its profile has risen to new heights with a Documentary ‘Roller Derby Till I Die’ currently airing on the Extreme Sports Channel.  After being in a music video as a roller disco skater in the background I got chatting to a girl with a punky-electro look and a roller skate with a banner reading ‘You Lose Some, You Bruise Some’ tattooed over her entire thigh.  I was in awe of her enthusiasm for the sport.

The Life of a Ticket

In a fast-paced workplace it’s important to keep it cool and stick to tried and tested processes. For developers, it’s crucial to adhere to this mindset; otherwise a few weeks or months down the line we will be fixing the errors and short-cuts of the rushed approach. To help us along the way we use ticketing systems.

A developer’s best friend is a ticketing system. The flow and process of a ticketing system works in parallel with our process – they tie together perfectly and allow everything to be tracked and controlled in a way visible to everyone involved.

Hello Heehaw


I think for any designer, moving agencies can be an unsettling experience.  I know I like to keep my feet on the ground and surround myself with faces and work that I am familiar with.  That being said, it’s never good to sit in a comfy chair for too long.
