Content Creation

If you are thinking about creating an online cross-platform presence but are not sure in which direction you would like to take it, content creators Distilled Ideas can provide experience and advice and discuss a few solutions around your budget range to show you the variety of options available to you. We offer the following services:

Web Video

Distilled Ideas has been commissioned to make engaging HD videos for a range of organisations and our video work has been embedded onto websites around the world. Today is an exciting time for video production, because in the past video production and television broadcasting was only accessible to a small number of organisations with huge budgets for PR and advertising. Now, thanks to high speed broadband and advances in HD cameras and professional editing software, web video has become the most succinct and economical way to promote your organisation locally and internationally. Please go to our web video page to see examples of our work.

To date Aoibheann has made web videos for the following organisations:

  • AFP
  • MS Ireland
  • Wildfire Films
  • RTE
  • ICCL / United Nations UPR
  • Focus Ireland
  • City Arts
  • South African Centre for Civil Society
  • Groundwork ZA & SDCEA

We can provide documentary stills for any event you might have. We also offer specific, practical workshops in taking better photos and we show participants how to use freely available photography editing software to crop, colour grade, enhance and upload the images they have taken -please see our workshop section to find out more.

Audio Content / Podcasting

We have the facilities to record and edit clean, atmospheric audio-scapes and radio-documentary-style reports of workshops, interviews and events.
