ICP Networks have unveiled a stunning new corporate video.
The IT and Networking specialists teamed up with BAFTA and Oscar nominated IVideo Productions to record a film that encapsulates ICP Networks as they plan for an exciting new decade.
ICP Networks have grown dramatically in both size and stature since their launch in 2002 and recently announced ambitious European and Global expansion plans backed by the world’s largest bank HSBC.
Managing Director Matt Archer has successfully overseen the purchase and development of a brand new £1 million global headquarters already dubbed the ‘Greenest IT HQ in Britain’ thanks to its eco-friendly build policy.
Modern lighting sensors, a heat recovery system and a 200 solar panels installation which produces more than 48,000 Kilowatts per year have resulted in a building which produces more than three times the amount of energy it actually requires, leaving ICP Networks with no energy bills and a surplus they sell back to the grid for a profit.
Matt explained: “This is a truly exciting time for ICP Networks as we plan for the future and look to expand and grow our business in the UK, Europe and around the world.
“We have come such a long way as a business since our launch but the last 18 months in particular, with the move to Lexicon House and the beginning of a number of exciting strategic partnerships, have proved to be a catalyst for a new feeling, a new mood, a new vision for our business.
“We have unveiled a new look headquarters, a new website, a sharper feel to our branding and marketing material and wanted to capture that new look, new feel, in a fitting commercial video and we are thrilled with the results.”
ICP Networks turned to Manchester based IVideo Productions for the creation of the film which was shot on set at Lexicon House.
IVP are a hugely successful production company and were nominated for both an Oscar and BAFTA for their short film ‘The Voorman Problem” staring Martin Freeman and Tom Hollander.
Archer, added: “We absolutely honoured that IVP agreed to shoot our film. Director Mark Gill and Baldwin Li had literally just flown back from the Oscars when we prepared to shoot the film which seemed slightly surreal but the results speak for themselves.
“We believe the film accurately portrays who we are as a business and hopefully provides clients old and new with a more intimate understanding of ICP Networks and the facilities we have on offer at Lexicon House.”
The film was shot in the boardroom at Lexicon House and stars ICP Networks Managing Director Matt Archer, Operations Manager Beki Lancaster and Senior Account Director Chris Rendell who describe their roles and experiences.
Robyn Forsythe, of IVP, said: “We felt it was really important to get across just what a difference the unique energy saving measures at ICP are making to the business, and to show ‘green IT’ as a real possibility, not an unobtainable objective. It wasn’t difficult to portray this in the film, not only because of the great energy saving systems at ICP, but also Matt’s enthusiasm for it!”
