All the best for 2016!

We can’t believe that’s another year gone! We’ll soon be searching through our projects to collect footage for our 2016 reel, and thought we’d take the chance to highlight some key moments from the last 12 months. The year started for us with a film shoot in Hong Kong. As a film crew it was our first experience of the Far East and it set the tone for what would be an epic 2015! From moving office to developing new international clients to producing our first feature film, the last year has been a landmark for us.

#1 Heehaw went through some major changes as a business at the end of last year, and 2015 was the first year as video production specialists. The team moved to lovely new offices on Great King Street in the art centre of Edinburgh, and keeping our spiritual home in the New Town.

#2 Do You Own the Dancefloor? Ok so we’ve probably banged on about this enough already, but the coproduction of this feature documentary was the team’s first venture into original content, and saw the unofficial launch of Heehaw Films, so it was fairly landmark for us!

#3 Over the course of the year we’ve been working closely with a number of major companies from the Geneva area of Switzerland. We’ve enjoyed an excellent relationship with the World Health Organisation and design agency MEO, and recently welcomed the International Labour Organisation as clients. Here’s the promo’s we created for the WHO World Health Day 2015.

#4 SSE continued to be an amazing client over the course of 2015. We produced a wide variety of content for the sponsorship arm of the company, here’s a promo we created to support their hugely successful Live Awards competition; this one for the SSE Hydro in Glasgow.

#5 The ILFS (Independent Living Fund Scotland) were another new client for us this year. They came to us with a great brief for their promotional video, and we had fun designing and animating the characters for this vector based animation.

#6 Working with Edinburgh’s oldest tailors, Stewart Christie, to create a promo in celebration of their archive collection. Some of these suits were over 200 years old, and the event was a wonderful meeting of Edinburgh’s creative sector in one of it’s newest spaces; the Biscuit Factory.

#7 We started the year in Hong Kong and we ended it in snowy Switzerland, filming a promo for the little town of Chateaux-d’Oex in the Swiss Alps. The film documents the day the town got together to write 5000 postcards to be delivered to the Geneva region via hot air balloon. Naturally, it really got us excited about Christmas!

And that about wraps it up! We’ve some more big announcements coming up in 2016, so keep an eye out for those. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year, we’re looking forward to what 2016 has in store for us all!
