Full service filmmaking
Whether you need a short video introduction for your site, or a more in-depth film to showcase you or organisation, you will need to think about the following:
Planning and Logistics
What type of film do you need? Think first about what you want to say, and who you want to say it to. What is the purpose of the film, and who is the target audience?
Simple interview or promotional video
You might just need a very simple video for a recruitment campaign, short social media post or online case study. These are all things I can help you out with – from scripting, setting up a well lit studio, and providing formats suited to various social media platforms.
Taking the benefits of a simple interview, and adding in shots of a product, location or activity makes a strong promotional film. Whether it’s promoting a product, advice or your organisation, a short video can reach people in ways other marketing materials can’t. Ideal for social media or for loading onto tablets and laptops for sales presentations. Quickly and simply sum up what you want to say in a short, visually interesting and accessible way.
Presentations and conferences
If you need a presentation filming, for instance to host online at some point after the event, it’s possible to set-up at any venue and capture it, taking a live audio feed from the presentation system for best quality sound. If you have slides available from the presentations these can be incorporated into the final video too.
Educational and training
Working with dducational organisations and within schools is always an ejoyable challenge. It can include training young people in how to work cameras, direct, script and also edit. This is a very different process to commercial filmmaking, and requires experience and patience and almost always a sense of humour! Full DBS checks are supplied.
I also create training videos, and videos which can be used to outline services you offer.
Social enterprise and charities
We regularly work work for charities and not-for-profit organisations, to make films that promote their work or summarise what they are about. It’s vital that charities are able to harness the power of video to get their message across.
Working for charities such as Firstline, The Children’s Society and The Encephalitis Society, we are used to working with vulnerable people and also discussing potentially difficult subjects in a careful but not patronising way.
Something a bit different??
If you want something totally different to the above – have you ever considered animation? It’s a very effective way to get messages across, especially if those messages are a bit of a hard sell.
