The most crucial part of our journey so far has been growing our own team, we wanted to talk about how and why we do this and celebrate Jack Holmes completing his apprenticeship at Ithica Films and becoming a fully fledged Filmmaker and a key player on our team.
On Thursday 27th April 2017 Ithica Films was named as the Best Creative Company at the North East Business Awards. This is an absolutely incredible achievement, especially coinciding with Ithica Films third birthday (May 6th 2014 but close enough!). We were one of the many winners from a burgeoning Teesside contingent (much love to Cleveland LGV, Double 11 & Daisy Chain) and to win in the Creative category was a huge compliment to everything our team has been doing from the heart of the Boho Zone in Teesside.
It’s really nice to follow up last years BNBA Best New Creative & Digital Business award win, especially with something covering the whole of the North East, but it was awesome to see the next day that the entire team celebrated with a team breakfast and then were back into the craft and the graft of our filmmaking. What an achievement, onto the next one…
We’re absolutely thrilled to have been nominated in the Best Creative Company in the Grand Final of the North East Business Awards 2017.
Following on from winning the Best Creative & Digital Business at the Best New Business Awards in Tees Valley in 2016 it’s a real privilege to represent the creative sector on the wider North East platform. The North East Business Awards are the biggest of its kind in our region, so it’s going to be a brilliant occasion for the team to have an evening together amongst the biggest and the best that the North East of England has to offer.
Constant storytelling has seen the total change of pace, tools and strategy for businesses with the need to move away from 6 month campaigns and into daily content. One of the strongest platforms for this is through Instagram and in particular Instagram Stories, which is one of our favourite and best performing social channels. Here we talk about what you need to get started, the types of stories to think about and how to monitor it. Follow us at @ithicafilms to see how we use it.
