At F73 Productions, we see our London video production company as being one of the most versatile in the industry. This is illustrated in our portfolio by the sheer range of clients that we have produced video clips, VTs, and short films for over the past few years. Whether a client is an unknown start-up or an established brand or artist, we approach every project with the same level of commitment and professionalism to ensure the result is one of which everyone can be proud.
One of the largest and most ambitious projects that we have ever undertaken is the making of the music video for the official song for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, Sing.
A Royal Appointment
Written and composed by Gary Barlow and Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber, and performed by the Military Wives with Gareth Malone and musicians from across the Commonwealth, the video for Sing was commissioned by none other than Her Majesty herself.
That F73 Productions was enlisted to create, direct, and produce such an important project is testament to our ability as a leading music video production company and a sign of just how far the company has come in a few short years.
The Royal aspect was not the biggest challenge in making this video however; that came in the filming and editing of musicians across the Commonwealth. Directed by the highly regarded Ben Winston, Sing was filmed at Abbey Road Studios in London and on location in Kenya, Jamaica, Australia, and the Solomon Islands. The video features performance shots of the singers and musicians, as well as documenting Gary Barlow’s journey across continents and his meeting and interaction with the stars of the song. There are also cameo appearances by Prince Charles and Prince Harry, who played tambourine on the track.
As well as being filmed for the making of a music video, the long trek across the Commonwealth was documented for the acclaimed documentary, Gary Barlow: On Her Majesty's Service also directed by Ben Winston and produced by Fulwell 73.
