Judged by renowned Hollywood Director Oliver Stone, Outside Line's creative collaboration with innovative global brand Beck’s has seen the agency scoop the prestigious vzaar award for the best video by a creative agency. Recognised for their visionary approach and creative execution of the online video for the Beck’s Vier Music Inspires Art campaign, creative digital agency Outside Line impressed the esteemed judging panel who singled out the project as a shining example of video being used to its maximum potential for commercial ends. Outside Line’s Director Lloyd Salmons is delighted at the announcement. “Being identified by the great Oliver Stone for one of our video projects is an outstanding achievement and a great boost for the team who worked with great precision to deliver a fantastic result. As a client, Beck’s are always open to pioneering new ideas and constantly looking to lead the way in how brands can communicate in the digital environment, which is a dream for our creative team.” “Being recognized with an award which was judged by Oliver Stone will certainly go down as one of the agency’s great moments,” Salmons explained. Gaining critical acclaim for best video at the vzaar Online Video Festival continues the London-based agency’s current winning streak. Adding to the raft of industry awards already received by the firm - Outside Line recently won Website Campaign of the year at the prestigious International Food and Beverage Creative Excellence Awards in May - they now hold a series of accolades that celebrate their position at the cutting edge of the digital creative industries.

  • Bristol Academy extends reach overseas with first foreign students

    With the doors to its brand new £1million training centre officially open, one of the UK's leading apprentice training providers, Bristol based S&B Automotive Academy, is showcasing its world-class facilities by launching a series of foreign student exchanges for the first time in its 41-year history. To get a flavour of what life is like as an apprentice in the UK, the Academy hosted 16 apprentice engineers and bus drivers from the G9 Automotive College in Hamburg, Germany, as part of a Europe-wide vocational training initiative called the ‘Leonardo Programme’ with support from the European Social Fund. In a reciprocal arrangement, S&B will be sending nine apprentices to Germany during February 2012 so that they can get an appreciation of life in the automotive industry on the Continent. A further three German exchange groups are being planned for next year. Designed to assist the development of vocational skills and training across Europe, including work placements for trainees, the Leonardo Programme has a budget of €1.75bn, which is helping to encourage UK organisations to work with their counterparts abroad. In what is expected to be another challenging year for employers in the UK automotive sector, S&B’s Chief Executive, Jon Winter, claims that the exchange initiative will bring many benefits to the Academy and its apprentices: “In a world of global automotive brands, it’s important for our learners to understand the international context of the industry they have chosen to make their career. This new exchange programme will enable apprentices and Academy staff alike to achieve a better understanding of the challenges and opportunities within the automotive arena in Europe. With the Academy’s influence also extending to the USA and Asia, there’s every possibility that this initiative could move further afield in the future.” Continued Winter: “The need for skilled technicians across the world is on the increase and we actively encourage our apprentices to look at broader horizons during their training. Many of them have already learned the phrase ‘Vorsprung durch Gelehrtheit’, quite simply, ‘Advancement through learning.” In the 2010/11 academic year, S&B doubled the number of successful Apprenticeships over the previous year with some 350 apprentices graduating from the Academy. At the same time, achievement levels reached an all-time high with an overall success rate of 85%. For those learners on the Advanced Apprenticeship three-year programme, success rates were even higher, at over 98%.
