Liverpool Football Club and AXA job for Sawbridgeworth business HNE Media Services after Hong Kong firm's Google search
A Sawbridgeworth video company did the equivalent of scoring in the Champions League final when it was chosen to work on a project involving Liverpool FC.
HNE Media Services, based at Allen House Business Centre at The Maltings, was contacted by Hong Kong firm The Media Village via a Google search.
Discussions revealed the end client was AXA in partnership with the Premier League champions elect and reigning European and World club champions' women's team, who the global insurance company sponsors.
"When we received an email from a Hong Kong media agency asking us to quote for filming in Liverpool, we had no idea who the end client might be," said HNE Media director James Garrett, whose team spent two-and-a-half days filming on Merseyside. "It was exciting and unnerving all at the same time.
During filming they visited some of the city's landmarks including Liverpool FC's Anfield stadium, the Cavern Club where The Beatles performed many times and the Titanic Hotel.
HNE Media, which was established in 2016 and is a supporter of the annual Indies awards, made such a good impression on the Asian agency that it has already been asked to quote for a similar project in Thailand and Japan.
"It's very humbling to have been picked from all of the UK video agencies to work on such a high-profile project," added James. "We're excited to see what the future holds."
