drpvideo Wins ‘Best Use of Video’ at CorpComms Awards 2016
The annual CorpComms Awards, which is now in its eleventh year, identifies excellence in in-house communications, and this year drpvideo won 'Best Use of Video' for their film Pull Through. This film was also shortlisted for the 'Best Communications by a Public Sector Organisation' award. Held at the The Troxy in London, 23rd November, over 500 top industry professionals from the world of corporate communications were in attendance at the ceremony.
drpvideo collaborated with West Midlands Ambulance Service (WMAS) to produce poignant film Pull Through. Shot at Stourport Boat Club in Worcestershire, with club members as extras, the short documentary re-created the moment that Rowing Club member, Ian Hough, suffered a cardiac arrest during the annual regatta, showing how the presence of a defibrillator on site saved his life. The film and its message formed the core of a wider PR and Marketing campaign by WMAS to encourage sports clubs around the country to introduce defibrillators as part of their first aid equipment.
