Formed in 2013 Wired Up Media was initially envisaged as being the research and development department for the Wireless Theatre Company.
We helped Wireless develop their on-location recording techniques, visualising audio skills and developed concepts in and around transmedia. We collaborated most notably on ‘Rat’ – the first of many short timeframe high pressured projects.
We also worked extensively with the community theatre: Theatre Peckham, helping them to fundraise to cover the shortfall left by governmental cuts to the arts.
One Year Later
Wireless and Wired Up were working in close partnership by this point, winning the War of the Worlds 75th Anniversary award at the Convergence Conference for the visualised audio drama ‘Dead London’ and entering ‘White Noise’ into the 48hrs SciFi Film challenge.
Wired Up was also expanding it’s relationship with theatres, helping the LOST Theatre to publish forty short plays online over the course of four days.
A commercial side of the business was also emerging, and we were engaging in offering corporate services. We wrote, shot and delivered an advert to nationwide cinemas for Zeiss lenses. Shot, edited and published Top Products and The Dairyman’s Supper for The Grocer and worked on Shop Talk and the Pulse Trade show for The Grocer and the Indytute.
By this point we added the following skills to our existing pool:
- Storyboard, script and produce promotional films.
- Produce motion graphics
- Manage the certification for cinema distribution.
The same (but much much bigger)
By 2015 Wired Up and Wireless were almost exclusively working on large scale tight time frame projects such as ‘The 36hrs Theatre Challenge’ and ‘Seven Couples Who Changed The World’ at the Edinburgh Festival.
Wired Up had acquired large-scale contracts with Clarion enterprises to shoot their trade shows and projects such as Shop Talk and Pulse and we were expanding our skillset with grading and transcoding workflows being developed.
Our work with The Grocer and The Indytute continued to expand.
Three years later
Wired Up now sits distinct from Wireless Theatre, although collaboration continues and there are many projects on the horizon.
The company has expanded its skill set at great speed and used these skills to develop and implement a transcoding workflows and consult on all things digital media.
Work continues with our regular clients, whom are as satisfied as always…
