BBC3 Young Carpenter of the Year – Promo

bubblemedia was approached by a young carpenter, by the name of Tirbhavhan Singh Chodha, with some exciting news. Thirbhavhan, AKA Tibby, had made it onto the TV show ‘Young Talent of the Year’.

Tibby would be competing in the Young Carpenter of the year segment which is to be aired at 8pm on Sunday 19th Feb 2012.

Out of thousands of applicants Tibby was selected to go to the studio and conduct some initial tests – he was successful and entered the next round with 100 others. After some more stages of challenges, examinations and tests, Tibby made it from 100 to 20, and then to the final 4 who would be competing on the show.

The Concept

The concept of the video was to showcase who Tibby is and to give a flavour of what the show is about with an emphasis on reaching out to younger generations as well as asian communities. It isn’t every day that an asian man with a Turban and beard is seen on TV, let alone in something with a positive feeling to it.

We used several locations around Leeds, which is where Tibby is from, as well as including the iconic gateway building Bridgewater Place as a point of reference.

It was an absolute pleasure working with Tibby and his brother Jaggy in directing, filming and producing the promo video. Although it was freezing cold (filmed in January 2012 in 0-degree temperature!) we were able to capture all we needed in order to make the video short but concise.

What did we do?…

After initial conversations about the idea of the video we were then able to put pen to paper and work out how we would produce the video. Here is what we did:

  • Initial consultation
  • Idea-board
  • Location scouting
  • Scripting development
  • Filming
  • Direction
  • Production
  • Post production
  • Voiceover sourcing
  • Promoting via Twitter/Facebook/Radio

Here is the final video – feel free to view it directly on Youtube in HD.
