For a long time Progression has primarily been me, Rob Claisse, writing scripts, filming and editing, and so its can be pretty slow to get things done. (I’m talking actual production here, where as Chris has been the lynch pin of the office dealing with customer support, retailer sales and all the other distribution stuff).
The success of the Kiteboarding Progression DVDs has allowed us to start thinking about lot of other content and services all based around the Progression ideals. And getting all this done is too much for one man so we’re happy to announce some new additions to the team…
Will Milne – www.williammilne.com
Some of you will know of Will either by name or by the stunning photos publish in all the best kitesurfing mags. Will previously was staff photographer / assistant editor for KiteWorld magazine, his filming skills can be seen in the latest Andy Gordon masterpiece and his last trip away was with Mr Hadlow (filming and some amazing photos that you’ll see in print very soon!). So we’re pretty stoked to have Will on board filming and editing the upcoming Progression DVDs – he’s hard at work at the moment stitching together some Kite Landboarding footage…
This summer we were able to offer some unpaided work to a summer intern – yep free labor is always good, but hopefully we offer a lot in return and give some great experience back – no tea making and photocoping at the Fat Sand office! Danny Morrice has been the first to get involved! A local Shoreham lad, Danny has been dropped in at the deep end, learning about editing, Macs and Final Cut Pro, along with dealing with my annoying attention to detail when it comes to “The Way” to edit Progression content! But he’s listened to it all and come through with flying colors – check out the mobile videos to see alot of his hard work.
We’ll be looking for more interns later in the year, so let us know if you fancy getting involved (thought there is a bit of waiting list at the moment – there seems to be a lot of people who want to work for free – woohoo!)
Lets not forget the rest!
Along with Chris Kyle , running the office we also have a thriving Video Production business that has nothing to do with Kitesurfing or instructional video! But what it mean is we have a great team of people to use on Progression if we can find some time between all their projects – Jon and Ed complete the editing/filming/motion graphics team whilst Joe Coyne is our New Business Manager extraordinaire, so if you’re in need of video for your event, product, service, internet, dvd or tv give Joe a buzz and see what we can do!
