Folkestone Zombie Walk 2014

Folkestone Zombie Walk is on 1st November 2014!

Once again we are pleased to get involved in a project with Planet Folkestone to help promote this years Zombie Walk in aid of the East Kent Hospitals Charity.

UPDATE: Take part in the Folkestone Zombie Spot, a viral video we made to encourage zombies to find themselves in our vid and tag in anyone they recognise to help spread the word.

What’s going on?

On November 1st 2014 everyone is invited to “get their zombie on” and join the zombie horde down at Folkestone for a fun afternoon and evening of zombie madness. This year as in subsequent years the zombies will be amassing and taking a slow, staggering zombie shuffle through the town and everyone is invited to take part.

The walk starts at 3.30pm and Zombies are invited to amass at the Leas Cliff Hall. We are collecting for the East Kent Hospitals Charity so raid your old tins and jam jars at home and bring some coins to throw in our collection buckets.

An Evening of Zombie Madness

This year, in addition to the Zombie Walk there will also be a Zombie Halloween Ball taking place after the walk at The Leas Cliff Hall and participants in the walk are entitled to a ‘buy one get one free’ offer on tickets for the ball. Keep an eye out on the Planet Folkestone or Zombie Walk pages on Facebook for details.

At least you won’t have to worry too much about what to wear…

Folkestone Zombie Walk 2014

So what’s with the video?

For Folkestone Zombie Walk 2014 we shot a short film with the Folkestone Zombie Walk as the backdrop. Using local actress, Maddy Harber and people we met on the day we created fun and interesting news reporting as if our intrepid reporter was on the scene in Folkestone as the zombie outbreak started. The video plays like a movie trailer and features many local people who took part in 2013’s zombie walk.

In addition, the Folkestone Zombie Walk video campaign also has some viral news videos which were released on the OYFE Productions Facebook page to further enhance and generate excitement about the event.

You can also check out last years Zombie Walk Video which was an homage to the TV show ‘The Walking Dead’.

GEEKFEST Folkestone - 10thMay 2014

Cinnamon Spice Bollywood Charity Event

000

The OYFE Productions team were recently invited to attend and film a Bollywood themed charity dinner and dance.

Organised by a local restaurant, Cinnamon Spice in Ashford, Kent, the event was in aid of The Paula Carr Trust and was a fantastic evening of entertainment and the best curry known to man prepared by Ash Miah’s team at Cinnamon Spice.

Using our videography skills we produced a great video that encapsulated the whole event and celebrated the acts who performed for the crowd and provided some great coverage from the night.

Check out the video here:

We were lucky to meet Salman Malik, a hilarious comedian who ran and compered the show and kept the audience amused with his crazy antics.

Also we were entertained by some beautiful dancers from Bolly Flex and Bollywood Vibes. Music and lighting was provided by the guys from Higher Class Events.

001

The event contained many elements, a charity auction, speeches from people from The Paula Carr Trust and the Lord Mayor of Ashford and there were music performances provided by Junai Kaden and the incredible Michael Jackson dance tribute act, Signature!

If you would like us to provide videography coverage of an event that you are organising, please get in touch with us, we will be happy to get involved.

The Walking Dead – Folkestone Zombie Walk

Zombie Walk002

In association with Planet Folkestone, a local non-profit events group, we were given the opportunity to make a video to help promote and boost awareness of a fantastic event coming up in October.

It’s a Zombie Walk and it’s in Folkestone on 5th October 2013 and all in aid of the East Kent Hospitals Charity.

The walk itself is now in it’s third year and gains support from Zombie fans all over Kent and from afar. Dressed and made up as Zombies everyone meets at a rendezvous point in Folkestone and then walks (or zombie staggers) along a route through the town, as a sponsored walk and to collect donations along the way in a shocking and terrifying zombie like way!

Check out the video!

So whats with the video?

The video, to be shown across the social networks by the fantastic team behind the Zombie Walk event pays homage to AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead’.

At the start of The Walking Dead, right at the beginning of the first season there is a fantastically creepy intro that depicts shots of small town America after a zombie apocalypse. We had the idea to re-produce this but by using landmarks and recognisable places in Folkestone and at OYFE Productions we also wanted to give a nod to one of the best TV shows of recent years.

How close did we get?

We tried to find places that looked similar to the places we are shown on the Walking Dead and we selected various places in Folkestone that look similar, either by their shape, the light or just the general vibe. We replaced the shot of crows with a shot of that typical seaside town nuisance, the humble seagull and so on – it completely replicates the scenes from the original and our creepy Folkestone looks eerily similar!

001

002

We also made a quick side-by-side comparison video so you can see how close we are to the original intro.

003

004

This the first video, there will be a follow up nearer to the big event and the team at OYFE Productions and Planet Folkestone hope to make it a huge success and to gather lots of money for the East Kent Hospitals Charity.

Behind the Scenes

Shot and edited by Adam Finch, supervised by the Planet Folkestone Team, Terri “Zombie” Marsh, Becky Buttigeig, Lisa Richardson (Author of blog of the dead), Mark Hourahane, Richard Cliffe and Lee Blakemore. We filmed the video over 2 nights in late June, and there will be two videos, the second of which will feature quite a few surprises in the lead up to the event!

Zombies included.

Music for our video was kindly provided by Lee Golledge.
