Project Description

Excellence in People Management Awards 2018 – shortlisting | Event film for the Public Services People Managers Association

Purpose of the film

The PPMA (Public Sector People Managers Association) Excellence in People Management Awards has been and annual event for a number of years, with the final being held at the Gala Dinner at the PPMA Conference. The shortlisted organisations/people were announced at a celebration event hosted by and held at the Guardian offices in London. In order to promote the Awards and help to increase the anticipation of the final, we were asked to produce a short highlights film of the event.

How we went about it

On the day we recorded a variety of general footage including people arriving, groups of people chatting, drinks and canapés being served and of course the announcement of who has been shortlisted for each category. We also filmed short interviews with the Association’s key people including the President, some of the shortlisted people and some of the judges and sponsors of the event. All of this was edited into a short and pacey film.

How it was used

The film was used to raise awareness and excitement about the upcoming final, as well as a being a key channel to announce the shortlist to the public. It was embedded onto the PPMA website, in addition a blog post was written around the event and the film was central to that. It has also been used on all of the Association’s social media channels including, Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.
