drpvideo EVCOM win
The annual EVCOM Screen Awards identifies excellence in visual corporate communication, and this year drpvideo won gold in one of the top categories, and secured a further three awards for their film Pull Through. Held at the Lindley Hall in Westminster, 28th April, over 500 top industry professionals from the world of film, video and digital communication were in attendance.

Recognised in four separate categories, drp took home gold in the Marketing & PR category, and bronze in Charity & Not-for-Profit.  In addition to this, the team were highly commended in the Health & Safety and Communication Effectiveness categories.  

drpvideo collaborated with West Midlands Ambulance Service (WMAS) to produce poignant film Pull Through. Shot at Stourport Boat Club in Worcestershire, with club members as extras, the short documentary re-created the moment that drp construction technician, Ian Hough, suffered a cardiac arrest during the annual regatta, showing how the presence of defibrillator on site saved his life.  The film and its message formed the core of a wider PR and Marketing campaign by WMAS to encourage sports clubs around the country to introduce defibrillators as part of their first aid equipment.   

Pull Through instantly made an impact, attracting coverage on several national press and media outlets including Sky News and BBC Midlands Today on campaign day and beyond.  

Director of drpvideo Dagmar Mackett commented: “Pull Through was of course extremely close to our hearts, and we felt proud to be able to help WMAS’ invaluable campaign. We knew the film was very good but didn’t quite expect the huge impact it had. To be recognised at the EVCOM Screen Awards like this, in those four very prestigious categories is absolutely amazing, and well deserved for the team.”
