We’re buzzing about being asked to be Media Sponsor at the Greenock Chamber of Commerce’s annual Bees Knees Awards for the second year running. The 2016 Awards were launched this week at the Waterfront Cinema to a packed audience of representatives from Inverclyde’s diverse and flourishing business sector.

Last year we had the privilege of filming all of the finalists and category sponsors and it was a real eye opener to see first-hand the wealth of talent in Inverclyde. We also filmed the Awards dinner and provided all of the big screen motion graphics. We’re looking forward to getting out and about again and seeing what 2016’s finalist crop brings. I’m sure we’ll be amazed, inspired and encouraged again by the incredible people living and working in this area.

Here is just one of last year’s winners, Trade Right International, who took home the award for Most Promising New Business.

And here is the time-lapse intro film we made for the start of the evening.

The Gryffe team was buzzing last Friday night as we descended on the Chartroom at Inverkip Marina for the Greenock Chamber of Commerce’s Bees Knees Awards. 300 of Inverclyde’s movers and shakers were present to see the cut glass trophies be presented to eleven very worthy winners.

We were delighted to be involved as Media Sponsor. This involved us making thirty finalist and ten sponsor videos, as well as designing all of the big screen graphics. We also produced a beautiful time-lapse video, which was shown at the very start of the evening.

In addition to this, our sister company Gryffe Weddings was shortlisted for the Best Performing Business Award. Unfortunately we didn’t win this but, having been in the unique position of meeting all of the finalists, we truly appreciate what a difficult job the judges must have had. There are truly some talented people in Inverclyde!
Well done to the Greenock Chamber for putting on another amazing night – and also for arranging for the sun to come out. We hope there weren’t too many sore heads in the morning!

We are delighted to be involved with this year’s Inverclyde Business Awards – The Bees Knees – in our role as Media Sponsor.

As well as filming the prestigious awards dinner on the 5th June, we are producing all of the motion graphics and videos for the finalists and sponsors.

This role has taken us all over Inverclyde, filming 40 videos in just three weeks! We have met some amazingly talented people, with such incredible drive and passion for what they do. It’s been truly inspiring.

Our sister company, Gryffe Weddings, is a finalist in the Best Performing Small Business category alongside MacDonald and Co Wealth Management and Seatrek Training Ltd.

MacDonald and Co are a vibrant bunch of number crunchers, based in Gourock, and we received such a warm welcome – particularly from the office dog, Pippa!


Seatrek are based in the stunning Inverkip Marina and offer a variety of nautical training. Although the weather wasn’t on our side when we visited, this didn’t affect the sunny disposition of Lesley and her staff.SeaTrek

The University of the West of Scotland are sponsoring this category and it was lovely to welcome Lorraine into our studios to film her short segment. It must have been tough for the judges to select the winner in this category and, although we are obviously rooting for Gryffe Weddings, each of our fellow finalists would also be worthy winners.University of West of Scotland
