We've just completed two videos for the internal use of National Citizens Service.
At Chat Noir we have a collection of ID lanyards. This one from yesterday's shoot at the Cablex trade show at Chester racecourse.
We've had an insanely busy day filming the Minstrels Court parade through the streets of Chester.
Well done to all 7 camera guys - footage is looking great!
Today Dan Fox, one of the directors of Chat Noir, filmed a press conference following the Hillsborough verdict in Warrington. Shooting alongside crews from the BBC and Sky, the final video will be used by the families' legal team to form a record of this important day for the people of Liverpool.
On November 8th, Chat Noir Productions filmed once more at the Heritage Boatyard: National Waterways Museum in Ellesmere Port.
Chat Noir are documenting the Keeping History Afloat scheme, a project for the National Historic Ships and the Canal and River Trust, which gives three trainees the opportunity to learn traditional boat-right skills*.
The latest filming shows the canal boat "Ferret" being craned into the Heritage Boatyard, so that the trainees can work on conserving this historic vessel.
To commemorate the event, Chat Noir have produced two short films. One showing the entire Ferret craning and another recording the celebrations by the volunteers and the trainees.

On 24th of March, Liverpool Anglican Cathedral hosted "Tribute to Titanic", featuring the Liverpool Welsh Choral Society. The event formed part of the city’s centenary remembrances, commemorating the loss of so many lives on the ill-fated voyage.
Chat Noir filmed the entire service for the Liverpool Welsh Choral Society, and DVD copies have now been supplied to members.
As well as a stunning central performance by the Choral Society and dancing by GODS (Growing Old Disgracefully), the service featured readings, and memories of the tragedy, with relatives of the survivors and merchant seamen in attendance.
This morning, with over 800 guests and worshippers in attendance, Chat Noir recorded the dedication of Ss Peter and Paul’s in New Brighton, as the first Roman Catholic Church in England devoted to the Latin Mass.
The Grade 2 listed building was closed in 2008, but thanks to the efforts of the SOUL (Save Our Local Landmark) campaign, which took the fight to the Vatican, it has been reopened as The Shrine Church of Ss Peter & Paul & Philomena.
The local landmark was nicknamed “The Dome of Home” by sailors, as it was one of the first buildings they would see on returning to the port of Liverpool.
Chat Noir Productions was commissioned by SOUL to produce a DVD of the event, which will be sold worldwide.
