A look back at 2020

For most of us, 2020 was a hugely disruptive time. With lockdown restrictions in place, working from home has become the 'new normal' for many.

Initially Farsight Films was impacted by the pandemic, with several events and conferences that were booked in for filming cancelled or postponed indefinitely. Thankfully, we were in the fortunate position to have a number of editing projects on the go, as well as being in receipt of government financial assistance. 

Towards the end of the year, it has been possible to do some filming on location. In light of the ongoing virus spread and lockdown remaining in place for most of the UK is has meant keeping to social distance and hygiene rules in order to keep everyone safe.  

2020 has certainly be an unusual time in recent memory, and we hope that 2021 will see things eventually return to normal.

If you require any filming, please be assured that we are able to continue our work under Covid-19 safety rules.

Filming a promo video for local homeless charity

Last November, Farsight was asked to support homeless charity Llamau by filming their Sleep Out 'Diff event, held at the Leckwith Stadium in Cardiff.

At Sleep Out 'Diff people are challenged to build a shelter and sleep in it overnight – whilst at the same time raising funds to help end homelessness for young people and vulnerable women in Wales.

We were delighted to help and worked with AME Videography to capture the event from early evening right through to first thing the following morning.

If you need your event capture on video, find out how we can help by visiting or call / text 07968 033 089.

Farsight in December

December has been busy for Farsight with several conferences needing filming as well as two music videos: one for a local health board and one for pop band Bars and Melody. There were three events overall, two being in Cardiff and the other in Birmingham which is the furthest we've had to travel since travelling to Majorca for a wedding shoot two years ago.

For one of the conferences we were asked to stream it live to Facebook, which was achieved using a desktop computer connected to our Panasonic AX-180 camcorder. The audio was fed through the sound desk via XLR cable into the camera. The event has since had over two thousand views online.

The Bars and Melody music video was filmed in a recording studio in Cardiff and was filmed using our trusty Canon 5D Mark IV DSLR camera. The video has racked up over two hundred thousand views online so far and will likely attain much more over the coming months.

Redacting CCTV Footage

Farsight Films can offer a range of redaction services to help those in the corporate, legal, security and local government sectors.

Redacting is the process of ‘blurring out’ or anonymising elements of video material to ensure confidentiality of individuals or other information. Footage typically comes from CCTV footage, but can also come from smart phones or other video sources. We can implement blurring, pixellating or black boxing of any part of the video frame to suit your needs.

Not only that, but we can also include graphical ‘tracking’ elements too, as you can see in the above video. Just ask.

Get in touch to see how we can help.

Farsight gets streaming

Farsight Films was recently commissioned to stream a live event in Newtown, mid-Wales. This was a conference to showcase new developments in technology to assist the work of psychology professionals and was a great success.

All of the presentations were broadcast live via YouTube and then made available afterwards to be viewed online. Kit used: Apple iMac, MacBook Pro, a Canon 5D MkIV and a Panasonic AGUX-180.

This is a new direction for Farsight and we are working to develop our capability in this area to help companies and organisations make the most out of the latest in communication technologies and services.
