Runner-up in this category was epix_media, a company set up by 2007 alumni who’re co-directors Zoe Easey and Will King. Story about the awards is in The Lincolnite where images were taken by 2012 graduate Steve Smailes a freelance photographer and he is one of our inspirational LSFM Industry Mentors.  Watch Visit Lincoln: Heritage video from Wallbreaker Productions.

Wallbreaker posted on its site that Visit Lincoln: commissioned the creation of three individual videos that would be used as social media marketing tools, with an aim to encourage people to consider Lincoln as their next possible place to explore.  For this particular video, Wallbreaker were tasked with producing a memorable and relatable video that showed multiple families and couples exploring the sights and monuments of the city. This video was the first in a series of three and reached over 200,000 organic views in less than two days of it being shared online. A 30 second version of the film is now used for social media advertising and plays on digital screens throughout Lincoln.
