Case Study : Camper Converters


Barnsley-based Camper Converters is a specialist in creating bespoke camper van conversions for VW T5 & T6 vehicles. The company covers all aspects of camper van conversions, including pop-top roofs, carpet lining, ply lining electrics, windows, alloy wheels and accessories. With camper conversions, there’s nothing more exciting than the ‘big reveal’ – it’s the perfect way to show off all the hard work. And, it’s also the best way to show potential customers what you’re capable of. Camper Converters recently transformed a VW Transporter Panel Van and wanted to share the amazing makeover.

How we worked with Camper Converters

Camper Converters asked Pixelwave Creative to capture its most recent successful conversion on video for sharing on social media channels and its upcoming new-look website.

It can be a real challenge trying to film vehicles – a highly-reflective van can act like a giant mirror, reflecting pretty much everything it its vicinity.

But, as much as we would have loved to film this amazing project in a studio with an infinity white backdrop and a whole lot of light source, we carefully created a plan that suited our client’s limited marketing budget.

With that in mind, we chose to film the camper on location at the Camper Converters workshop – making the most of the location’s ambient light alongside our Aputure Light Storm kits.

Clever positioning of the vehicle meant we were able to effectively light the wider shots of the van, while also capturing detailed close ups.

But the conversion more than speaks for itself. We filmed all the amazing finer details, including a coffee machine, solar panels, power points and even a kitchen sink thrown in.

The finished VW camper conversion film is ideal for Camper Converters to use on social media and its upcoming new website to showcase its fabulous camper conversion skills.

The feedback

Peter Staniforth says: “Pixelwave Creative is great at putting together a video production plan that is tailored to meet your needs and, more importantly, budget. We’ve worked with JP and his team before and love their enthusiasm and attention to detail.

“We wanted a professional video that would showcase the quality of our camper van conversions and give customers an insight into our work. The video JP produced gives potential customers the opportunity to see first-hand all the intricate details this conversion project involved in much more depth than with a collection of photos.”
