In 2009, after 25 years, 3M moved their Ireland HQ from Dun Laoghaire just south of Dublin to this facility at nearby Carrickmines. This short '3M Showcase' version of the 3M Ireland video case study shows the resulting stunning 3M headquarters and includes comments from some of the 3M staff about what they like and how they felt the project went.
Commissioned in early 2009 by all the 4 companies involved (3M, Ten Design, see tendesign.co.uk , breathegroup and Move24, see move24.co.uk), this was a great film to do and terrific people to do it with. The result is a world class office environment, like no other, as can be seen.
Both this short film and the '3M Ireland Longform' corporate documentary were produced by Shooting Image Ltd of Ely, Cambridgeshire using a Sony EX3 and Apple FCS workflow. You can see other examples of our business video work on our Shooting Image website. These include the 'Napp Pharmaceuticals Video' for breathegroup (to mention a similar type project) as well as the full Longform version of this video on our site (and here on Vimeo in HD too). A growing collection of videos we've done for other types of businesses can also be seen. Take a look at shootingimage.co.uk
Update 2nd March 2010: 3M Ireland was named as one of the top 40 best workplaces in Ireland - and made the top 20 list in the ‘fewer than 250 employees’ category. See why in this short film. Congratulations to everyone involved!
