The guys over at Spaceport HQ – AKA are busily planning the next party. The venue hasn’t been announced yet but it’s systems go for a March 30th launch.

Lenssniper will be there again on camera duties to cover the party – keep an eye out in the client section for the photos from the gig

Penkat Promo

Very glad to say that the lovely folks over at Penkat Studio are using some Lenssniper shots taken during out time at the studio working on a TV advert for Percol Coffee.

Highly recommend them if your looking for a good studio and experienced staff.

Greenman Festival 2012

Lenssniper is very proud to announce that we’ve been booked to photograph the Greenman Festival again this year.  Really looking forward to seeing all the friends we made last year.

It’s been a long and interesting intervening 12 months since we were last at Glanusk Park, just have to hope that the weather is as kind this year.

Percol Coffee

Just got back from working at PenKat Studio in Milton Keynes.  We were helping out shoot a new TV commercial for this Fairtrade coffee producer in the wonderful PenKat Studio run by Kate.  We were working under the Iksentrik moniker for Ryan Coyle who was the artistic director on this project.

We also provided the some production stills for the project and the studio itself.  Met some wonderful people and look forward to working there again soon!

Plasa Conference

If you are planning on visiting the Plasa conference this year you will be able to see some Lenssniper photographs being used for promotion at the Funktion One exhibition stand.

Funktion One Promotional Shots

We’re very proud to have recently supplied Funktion One Research with some new promotional photographs showcasing their PA systems.

These particular images show the Funktion One system being used for a full orchestra production featuring Charles Hazlewood as conductor and performer among other notable classical and contemporary artists including Adrian Utley from Portishead and Will Gregory from Goldfrapp.

Develop Conference

We are very excited to be attending this years Develop and Evolve conferences being held  in Brighton, UK.

We are covering the conferences on behalf of Imagine Magazine published by Wildfire Comms based in Bristol.

The conferences are dedicated to the international games industry.  There are talks from both industry luminaries to newly formed companies and indie game producers.

Running alongside the Develop conference on Wednesday 11 and Thursday 12 July is the Develop Expo. It’s free for all visitors to attend and brings together some of Europe’s most innovative companies from every sector of games development.

At the heart of the Expo is the Develop Bar & Networking Lounge sponsored by Unreal Technologies so you don’t have to go far to buy colleagues a drink, have an informal meeting or just mix with other visitors.

Bloc Festival – Cancelled

I’m sure by now most people will have heard that this years Bloc Festival was cancelled.  We were supposed to be covering the entire weekend on the Main Stage featuring artists like Amon Tobin, Snoop Dogg and Orbital among others.

We had only been on-site a matter of a few hours before it became apparent that the entire event was going to be shut down.  From our own observations on the ground this was absolutely the right decision to take on the part of the organisers.  It’s a very sad outcome but was unavoidable.  We wish the organisers well and hope that the fall out can be limited and this unfortunate event doesn’t mean the end of Bloc.

Whilst we were there we met some fantastic festival staff that had been involved with Bloc Festival from the very beginning, they were all extremely upset by the turn of events and we wish them all the very best along with the organisers.

There has been much speculation regarding the reasons for the early closure but this really is futile, the MET and the organisers will make their reasons known as soon as possible in the mean time jumping to conclusions helps no-one.

“We are currently gathering information about Friday night’s events. We are also working to ensure that everyone will be refunded for their tickets. Please bear with us while we do this.

Thanks to all of you, as well as the many artists and crew who travelled across the world to come to Bloc – we are so sorry that we couldn’t deliver the experience we had planned.

And thanks so much to the event control, security, stewards, police and public who worked together to ensure that no one came to harm during the peaceful evacuation.

This is far and away the most important result of the night.

For those of you who are frustrated and angry – we hear you. For those sending love and support – thank you.

More news soon.
