Leyland Shoot DIY Explainer Videos at Southall Community College

Decorating experts, Leyland, spent the day filming at Southall Community College’s Construction and Green Skills Centre this week. The industry-leading company is making a series of short films, explaining DIY hacks for their social media channels. The ten short videos are packed with top tips revealing the tricks of the trade to inspire home improvement enthusiasts from beginner to advanced levels.

The twelve films vary from ‘how to choose the right paint brush for the job at hand’; ‘stirring paint to achieve the right consistency’ and ‘cutting in for the perfect finish’. Films will also soon be available on ‘how to create your own dust catcher when drilling’ and the best techniques for hanging pictures.

Head of Content & PR Sean Wozencroft from the communications agency 8848, which is based in the Midlands, said he chose Southall Community College as he had worked here before with another construction industry client Selco.

Sean said: “Southall Community College is an amazing facility, promoting top-notch resources and opportunities for construction students. It was the perfect location for our filming.”

Videographer John Bridgewater explained that he was shooting the films in landscape format, and ensuring the action was central to the frame so that the videos could also be used in square and portrait formats such as Instagram, Facebook and TikTok.

Professional presenter Gary Hirst tackled most of the tasks, while Leyland’s Senior Commercial Manager Steve Thorndike also carried out some of them.

Leyland is supporting West London College with £500 to spend at any of its 33 stores in London.

Enda Mulloy, Deputy Head of Construction said: “We are very grateful to the construction resources Leyland provided for our students to use, including electrical and lighting materials, wood, tools, silicones and sealants, ladders and plumbing items too.”
