We have over 30 years experience in producing films, animations, corporate videos, web content, movie trailers and broadcast programming. We have travelled the world shooting everywhere from fusion labs to bicycle factories, boardrooms to building sites.
As the communications team for The BLOODHOUND Project Mettle has produced a wide range of film output , from monthly webTV programmes to computer generated animations. You can see our introduction to the Project here:
We also directed this 'fly through' of BLOODHOUND's hybrid rocket system, featuring state of the art CGI and a soundtrack kindly donated by the Brit Award winning Elbow. This footage, like all our Bloodhound animations, has been used extensively to illustrate TV news, documentaries and third-party webcasts, making it a very good investment.
Mettle launched the Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering, the 'Nobel' for the engineering sector, which included us making a raft of video content. The introductory film is here:
For QEP we also got the chance to spend an hour with Vint Cerf, one of the creators of the internet and QE Prize winner. This is what we did with it...
Mettle was retained by McLaren Group to promote the technology in its new road cars and was subsequently asked to raise the profile its Applied Technology division. This we did, very successfully. Along the way we created this 'audio slideshow' for use online. Creating a different feel from a video, it could be used in sections; here is the programme in its entirety:
We have been producing video content for The Institution of Mechanical Engineers for ten years, on subjects ranging from nuclear fusion to the technology being used by elite swimmers:
We have a distinguished track record in aerospace creating films for Avanti, EADS, BIS, UK Space Agency and Astraea, the world's leading research project into the development and use of civilian unmanned aircraft. You can see one of six films we made for them here:
Mettle is retained by the UK's Satellite Application Catapult to handle communications and this includes making videos for wide range of audiences. One of these is an introduction to the role of satellites which is played out on the Catapult's giant video wall, which you can see (in small scale) here:
We recently helped the Satellite Applications Catapult promote the European Satellite Navigation Competition, with this short animation providing a call to action for entrants and presentation material for Catapult teams.
For the same client Mettle produced this film combining live action with CGI, to show how space based technology would be part of daily life in 2030. The brief called for the movie to be playable without audio (for use in trade shows) and be used on a 'stop - start' basis in one to one meetings, where particular ideas or examples would be explored in more detail. It also spawned a raft of stills which have been turned into a brochure, which we helped produce.
