Following Nodachi’s involvement with Nollywood meets Hollywood movie – Turning Point, we picked up the cast for an interview. Turning points main cast, Ernie Hudson, K.D. Aubert, Igoni Archibong and Oge Okoye were interviewed at the Melai White House Hotel in London.
We have recently wrapped on a two month project to deliver a colossal 144 films to Rank Interactive for their up-coming X Factor based game; The Fame Game. Players will be able to pick one of 6 characters who’s backstories and interactions were developed, scripted and shot by Nodachi. Playing to our best talents (delivering content on tight budgets and deadlines) we managed to shoot the 144 films required to drive the games narrative.
Nodachi were able to get all access to the X Factor set in Fountain Studios. We shot 24 films each for the 6 characters, and used over 25 locations with 15 supporting cast. Throughout the project we shot a whopping 81 mins of edited footage, and over 28 hours of rush. The equivalent of a feature film.
More updates on the games progress soon!
Video Scribble or Live Scribe is a new form of animated communication thats catching on fast. So when Lebara Mobile asked us to produce one we were excited to try it out. We partnered with Remote Goat, a new talent scouting website to find ourselves an artist that was able to carefully draw, ink and then colour all the slides we’d need to create the commercial.
In the usual Lebara style, we made two versions; one for the African corridor and one for the Indian corridor.

Turning point is the second feature film from Nigerian born director Niyi Towolawi. After the success of his first film; Twisted, Niyi embarked on the Hollywood Nollywood blend called Turning Point. TP was shot in Nigeria and the USA on the Sony F3 camera. Nodachi took up the post production when the director returned to London to complete the film. We supplied a fine cut, grade and sourced sound post and sponsorship for the films release.
Turning Point will be in cinemas towards the end of November, if your a Nollywood film fan, this film is tipped to a game changer in the industry.
Embrace You, is a new experience driven training provider born out of the succes of Lebara Mobile’s award winning Customer Service department. Nodachi, has shot all the previous award winning films for Lebara Mobile’s Mobile News Awards entries. So naturally we were asked to go ahead and do the same for Embrace You. We decided to go with a novel aproach, and to shoot this corporate film from the “Point Of View” of a new trainee. We decided to tell the story of the new recruits first week in training, all the way from the first step through the door to “graduation” We employed an interesting Helmet Camera that allowed us to get up close and personable with the other recruits.
As always with every Corporate we’ve done with Lebara we loved making it, and they loved the results.
This month seems to be corporate film month here at Nodachi!
This time its for TCS a global technology consultancy firm with over 250,000 employees worldwide.
Nodachi was tasked to create a film that outlined the rewards and recognition scheme used within the company called TCS GEMS. This scheme is designed to allow employees to reward each other and to facilitate personal growth and a sense of accomplishment within the workforce. As always, tight turnaround times and a product that everyone is happy with.
As EE launched in August of 2012, they used a novel way of giving all of their new employees – from T-Mobile and Orange, a personable experience with the heads of the company. They used a Musion Holographic Projection which we were glad to be a part of.
Musion works much like a giant peppers ghost effect, and EE used it to get all the heads of the company in one room at the same time as a recorded artefact. This way they could invite their 5000 strong staff to come and watch the “presentation” and all of them would feel like they were really being spoken to by the top brass.
Nodachi launched a brand awareness campaign for Arik Air’s International leg on the 16th of June. The Campaign runs for a month and targets African areas of interest on the London Underground. As part of the campaign, we ran 6 Sheet posters, Elevator and Lift Panels, and cross track projects at major stations aimed at the Business Class market.
Last years Mobile News Awards saw Lebara Mobile clear up with Best Customer Services and Best Mobile Virtual Network Operator of the year awards. This year its the same again! Nodachi was there both years to help them win their title! We created two submission films which were entered along with their statements. The two Lebara submissions were recognised and highlighted by the judges as having “Commendable audio and video materials” Lebara’s heads of marketing and of customer services were both delighted with the work and the result.
Bring on next year!
Thats right, ever since Canon announced its new 5DMKIII We have been anticipating its arrival. The new MKIII finally fixed a host of problems that the MKII was lacking in. The camera no longer uses line skipping to downsize its video to HD resolution, so the aliasing issues the MKII had are history! We are also seeing a better performing Moire pattern filter so this camera is a little more “video friendly”..This new model captures 1080p Full HD video at 24p (23.976), 25p, and 30p (29.97) fps; 720p HD recording at 60 (59.94) and 50 fps; and SD recording at 30 (29.97) and 25 fps, giving cinematographers and videographers more flexibility and options for video capture. Finally the camera also has built in timecode, the ability to record video for up to 30 mins per card and a headphone jack for monitoring.
