Belkin – The Pure AV Challenge

We were commissioned to produce a ten-minute 3D animation training DVD. Aimed at the Europe-wide Staff of Dixons, it illustrates the qualities of Belkin’s Pure AV cable range and instructs sales staff how and when to sell the product.

Our story takes place in an American Wild West setting. It follows two characters, Mr Pure AV and Mr Cheap who are about to compete in a car race to see which is the best cable. Their goal is to get to TV town first, avoiding all manner of obstacles along the way.

"The end product from Smart Productions exceeded all our expectations. The training DVD they produced for us is being used in over 700 retail stores across the UK, and is soon to be rolled out across Europe. We have had an incredible response from everyone who has seen it, and it has helped our training no end. From the original consultation, all the way through production to the finished product, the Smart team were incredibly helpful and always professional. We look forward to working with them again on our next project."
Pete Dadswell
National Training Manager, Belkin UK

Humberside Police/Hull City FC

A police briefing DVD tool to be screened before all fixtures at Hull’s KC Stadium. Using a state-of-the-art 3D build of the stadium – accurate in every detail – the DVD covers important aspects of policing at this specific location such as; orientation, communications, clothing & PPE equipment, transport to ground, first-aid-points and defensive line. The DVD is also designed to be used by stadium staff and officials operating the stadium throughout the year.

“The DVD briefing video that you have produced for our policed football matches has allowed all officers to receive the same information on every match day, in particular the stadium emergency procedures and additional tactics 'pitch-side' for the threat of a pitch incursion. The computer graphics were superb, especially in the 'fly-through' sequences - an excellent product.

This has had the effect of our police officers being more confident and familiar with the stadium, roles of stewards/ Match Commander/ Safety Officer and the responsibilities they have in the policing and stadium management operations. Those officers new to the stadium cannot gain this important information in any other way in such a short space of time.

Our close work with you and your team have been invaluable in setting up, filming and producing this briefing product, especially with the opening of a new City centre shopping precinct and transport interchange. This resulted in additional filming and narration onto a revised DVD being completed only a few weeks after these buildings opened.”
Garry Neal - Football Liaison Officer, Humberside Police

IABM - Broadcast Equipment Training DVD

Working alongside East Coast Media, we were commissioned by the International Association of Broadcasting Manufacturers to provide the video content for their Broadcast Equipment Training DVD. The interactive DVD is aimed at people who work, or would like to work in the broadcast industry and for people who just want to find out more about broadcast equipment and don’t yet have much technical knowledge about broadcasting.

“It is an excellent training tool. I have been looking for something like this for years and it is wonderful. We have ordered additional DVD’s since one copy has not been enough.”
Hannah Barkley: Ross Video

“I have viewed the entire DVD and this is outstanding. Well done to all of those involved in the making of it. This will be a very valuable tool for those starting out in radio and television. It should be mandatory viewing for all. I just wish something similar was available when I started in 1969!”
Jon Pinniger, Product Manager (Tally & UMD Systems)
TSL (Television Systems Limited)
