We are really pleased to be able to share with you some of the work we have been doing over the last few months. We were commissioned to create a series of advertisements and instructional videos for Jump Trampolines which featured the Olympic diver Tom Daley.

We were contacted by Jump Trampolines to work with them for the launch of their company to help introduce their line of outdoor trampolines. Jump had achieved an endorsement from the Team GB Diver Tom Daley for their line of Trampolines. While getting a famous diver to help advertise children’s trampolines may not immediately make sense, when you realise that the majority of a divers training takes place on a trampoline things become clearer.

When we first spoke to Gina, the marketing and communications manger at Jump Trampolines she had a good idea of what she wanted and even had a rough draft storyboard for us. In the run up to filming we helped craft the storyboard into a firm plan for filming, we also animated their logo for use in the films.

We arrived at the film studios in London with a four man team consisting of Martyn (director), Paul our camera and lighting technician, Steve our photographer as well as Martin, our sound recordist for the day. Setup was quite swift and after Steve took the promotional photographs we started our filming.

Filming took a little over 6 hours where we directed several pieces to camera where Tom introduced the trampolines. We also had 4 children of varying ages to learn some specific trampoline jumps from Tom who first demonstrated the jumps before they completed the moves themselves.

Once filming was complete we edited, colour graded and sound mixed all of the films whilst in contact with Gina who added input throughout the post-production process.

“It was quite by accident that I found Fresh Mint Films and the lovely Martyn Greswolde. From our first telephone conversation he was on my wavelength and after our initial meeting I knew he was the guy to put the Jump into Jump Trampolines.
 
From my preliminary thoughts Martyn helped me to put my thoughts into practice.  The whole shoot, which was for our new project Jump Trampolines endorsed by Tom Daley, was a huge success. Professional, fun to work with and knowlegable.  We had a great day thanks to Martyn and his team.
 
After the video shoot Martyn listened to my thoughts and made changes and tweaked to give us the great visual videos that we have on the website.
 
I shall be using Fresh Mint Films again!”
