Since 2014, NextShoot has been working with Bloomberg LP in the USA and the UK to film the entire design, construction and fit-out of their new European Headquarters in the heart of the City of London; a three-year project in collaboration with architects Foster + Partners and construction company Sir Robert McAlpine.
NextShoot has captured interview, manufacturing and construction footage with contractors and subcontractors all over the World: the United States, China, Japan, Belgium, Italy, Germany, Spain, Finland, and at various locations across the UK.
The project has involved specialist filming with drones, jibs, steadicam, mini-cams and long-term time-lapse cameras at key locations inside and outside the site.
The content captured globally by our film teams has been shaped by our editors into a number of engaging short-form videos for internal and external use by Bloomberg, and a long-form documentary film, elevated by 2D and 3D graphics.
The short-form content has tackled an array of subjects in relation to the building and Bloomberg as an organisation: the facade of the building, the workplace of the future, Roman history and archaeology related to the site and the City of London, the artwork in the building and public spaces, sustainability, and the theme of community.
NextShoot has also worked with Bloomberg to film events related to the building, such as the Topping Out ceremony attended by Michael Bloomberg, has created content for complex video displays at Press Days, and provided packages of graphics, stills and video material for EPKs. Our work for Bloomberg has been featured internationally - in print, online and on television, including the BBC 10 o’clock News.
In addition, NextShoot was responsible for the live broadcast of the building’s opening, working with Bloomberg TV and their AV team
