Our Core Values
MAKING ART TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE
First Take uses film and digital art to create work that has real impact and can make a difference. Our work gives voices that often struggle to be heard a platform. We want to unearth stories that need to be told and convey messages that people want to get across.
Finding innovative systems to utilise new and emerging technologies is central to our work. Be it augmented reality (AR), 360 immersive film, virtual reality (VR), creative accessibility or interactive web narrative First Take strives to push the boundaries of what is yet to be thought possible. We want to create new ways of experiencing the world.
This is where the magic begins: coming together and working together. Working with others challenges enthuses and inspires us. Every piece of work we create is through collaboration. It may be with one individual or an organisation or many different collaborators but it will be a unique and productive relationship that feeds creativity and makes brilliant work.
We want our work and our partners work to be seen and understood by everyone. We have, and continue to develop creative ways of making work accessible to as many people as possible. Its not just about meeting requirements for us, but building in and using access needs as an opportunity to create a better piece of work.
About Our Process
We have award winning & broadcast writers, producers, directors, coders, crew, musicians, dancers and digital artists on our team who will work closely with you to develop your idea into a film, web or digital art concept.
Our work is of the highest quality throughout the process, in preparation with risk assessments, clearances, contracts, within staff training keeping up to date with emerging technologies, prototype testing, broadcast equipment, and delivering to what ever platform you need.
We have decades of experience in creating participatory projects. We work with people to involve them deeply in the project, whether it be coming up with the initial idea or giving people the skills to create their own film or artwork.
We want our work to be seen and understood by everyone. We have, and continue to develop creative ways of making work accessible. For us it’s not just about meeting requirements, it’s about building in and using access needs as an opportunity to create a better piece of work.
