Roll out the mat… or, more accurately – the paddleboard!
Our final series of shorts for FINE LIVING Channel show an unconventional, but ultra-cool, way to strike a yoga pose.
Scripps Network came to us at the beginning of the year with a brief to refresh its filler material and inject a bit of personality to the channel’s identity. It’s been a fun and creative process and our latest 4 films complete the series of 19 films in total.
We went behind-the-scenes at TUSKER, the UK’s leading manufacturer in safety solutions and PPE (personal protective equipment). Shot on their premises in Plymouth we were able to capture the quality and British craftsmanship that goes into every garment and piece of equipment they make.
“We found the whole process of working with OCP extremely professional and enjoyable. The creativity that was shown and the effort in understanding our company and our exact objectives was brilliant. We’re extremely happy with the end result” Sharon Shaw, Business Development Manager, Tusker
After an exciting year with lots of new client wins and a growing team, it was time for us to move to bigger offices. We are still in beautiful Devon and luckily we get to keep the coastal view!
We had a lot of fun designing the space. As we spend so much time there, it was key to give it a home-from-home feel. We now have a stand-alone edit suite available for hire, as well as a separate lounge area for clients.
Photobox has been one of our favourite collaborations to emerge from 2016. Not only did we produce their Christmas Ad (which achieved the highest spontaneous and prompted brand awareness they have ever had!) we also created their online ads and a series of workshop videos for social media.
This year, Photobox entrusted us with a very important day of the year, Mother’s Day. Continuing with the theme of using real people instead of actors, we took ourselves to locations around Devon to capture the super-est of supermums!

We sit down for a glass of Ribena and chat with OCP’s new Head of Production – Rebecca Heal. Bex (as she prefers to be called) took time out of her busy schedule to chat about marathons, drones, and Eddie Izzard!
What is the most interesting part of your job, as Head of Production at OCP?
I like that every day is different, but I find it most interesting when you have to set-up a challenging shoot, whether it’s in some far-flung location, or filming something a bit adventurous – it just gets you thinking. Then it’s always satisfying to wrap on a shoot when things have gone well, and you can relax and think, “I helped make that happen.”
What initially drew you into video production?
I studied Media & Communication Studies at University, and I actually started my media career as a children’s casting agent. I just knew I wanted to work in TV and I’ve been lucky to have worked across a variety of genres; from kid’s TV in a studio getting covered in slime, to live sports OB’s at Wembley! I love meeting new people, whether it’s working with a new client, crew member, or talent.
What would you say is the biggest (most interesting) trend in video production right now?
Drones are great and still seem to be pretty popular. We’ve shot some lovely stuff recently over Dartmoor and the South Devon coast. I’ve also filmed a pro-golfer hitting drones out of the sky, which was a lot of fun!
What do you get up to in your down time, away from work?
I like to travel, and there are lots of places on the ‘wish list’ to visit, but I also enjoy running in my spare time. I’ve completed three marathons so far, but I’d like to try and do the New York one at some point!
I’m impressed about your marathons! Have you had any injuries?
The first marathon I ever ran my blisters were so bad that they got infected! I had to go to work in my slippers afterwards, and the second one I had shin splints! The third one was relatively uneventful, so I managed to smash my PB by 20 minutes!
… and finally, if you could be drinking tea with anyone right now, dead or alive, who would it be? Right now I’d like to chat and have a laugh with Eddie Izzard. I’d love to know how he ran all those marathons day after day for Sport Relief, especially as he’s not classed as an Olympic athlete or anything – doing one is hard enough!
This film is part of a series of shorts produced for The Fine Living channel.
“Understood the brief from the off. OCP’s interpretation of the brief to the final film was brilliant. We had received cheaper quotes to the brief, but the quality of OCP’s interpretation instilled confidence that we would be working with experts that would deliver and have an easy working relationship” Heather Pilkington, Digital Account Manager, Bluestone 360
