Under the banner of my video production unit Funk-Soul Media I produced a short promotional video for DELTA SURGICAL LTD. DELTA SURGICAL is a fast growing UK based company that specialise in Medical Device Technology in Surgical and Critical Care. I wanted the style of this video to portray the driven forward attitude and family values of the company. Communication and organisation with our client was key to the success of the video.
