Southwell Music Festival

little ginger was recently approached by Apple & Biscuit Recordings to film the inaugural Southwell Music Festival which ran from 22nd – 25th August.  


“Southwell Music Festival is an annual, top-quality classical music festival taking place each August Bank Holiday to celebrate classical music, to raise the profile of the town and its magnificent mediaeval Minster, and to inspire local musicians – especially young people.”


Working both independently and alongside A&B who provided high quality multi-track audio recording of the major concerts, we filmed a huge variety of top quality concerts as well as fringe events and associated art exhibitions in the beautiful Minster and several other great venues around Southwell.

We used a combination of full sized broadcast camera and small “action-cams” which could be placed on stage and in other areas that we would not otherwise be able to film.  The footage is ultimately to be used in a promo for next years event with some of the big concerts possibly released in their own right.

Above is a sample from the festival, Haydn’s “The Creation” performed in the Minster.

Who are little ginger?

Its been a busy month at LG, we’ve been busy building the business from scratch, designing the website (still not finished but starting to look very pretty), getting marketing materials to the printers, wading through the bureaucracy of setting up a company all while serving our clients and producing some great material for film, live and web.   I even have business cards at last!

So what is this little ginger thing that were working so hard on?  Well to most people we are a new high end creative production house specialising in film and video material for arts, corporate and advertising.  We also do live multi camera productions for concerts, shows and events which we can stream live in better than broadcast quality HD to audiences all over the world.  And web development, often tied in with video material, online portals for people to experience the media that we create.

The organisation is actually a sort of collective, a talented group of friends who have been working together for years and pool their skills and creativity.  The entire extended little ginger team is 20+ strong but the key partners are:

Matthew Dove

Matthew is a Multi-Skilled Film Maker a Creative Producer and is Managing Director of little ginger

Don McVey

Don is an experienced Director of Photography, Camera Operator and Multi-Skilled Film Maker

Matt Jolly

Matt is our web man specialising in film production for web, live streaming, encoding and web design

Working with us is a network of the best specialists from across the creative industries that we bring in on a job by job basis.  We tailor the best team to each project we undertake.

Soon we will be producing some amazing new promotional films to show off what we can do so watch out for that.  I will aim to keep this blog up to date with news of what we’ve been up to as well as reviews of equipment and services that we have used (gotta share the love with our industry bros out there).

Until then,

little ginger out. X
