Our formula for great promotional video production
Making a promotional or corporate video production should be fun. We know you don’t want to wait months for your video, and you definitely don’t want a surprise bill at the end of the project.
Our aim is to make the whole video production process easy, speedy and fun. Delivering on time and on budget. Check out our past case study success stories.
Here's our formula for successful promotional video and film production. Obviously there's a bit more to the secret sauce - but here are the basics.
The very first step to making an awesome corporate video production or promotional film is getting in touch. When you chat to one of our friendly London and Surrey based producers, the ideas will just start to flow. We’ll ask a few questions about your video – locations, audience, style, budget and deadlines are some key things that can give us a clear idea of what you need.
Don’t worry if you don’t have a crystal clear idea of what you want in your promotional video just yet, we can help come up with the creative and work with you to nail the key messages.
We’ll give you an estimated cost, and work on a proposal for the treatment to help visualise our plans for the shoot and edit. We’re always looking to try out new creative ideas, but it will always be in line with your brand.
Once you’re happy to go ahead, we can start planning your promotional video shoot. This could involve scripting and storyboarding, hiring locations and actors, or could be as simple as booking our crew and arranging a date to come to your office. We scale up or down to suit you.
It’s shoot day. Depending on the scale and style of your promotional or corporate video production, you can expect at least three crew members. A highly experienced producer (who you’ll have chatted to before the shoot), an expert cameraman, and a friendly assistant who will all work to make the day run as smoothly as possible.
Whether we’re filming a series of interviews in your office, or shooting at multiple locations for your actor-focused promo – we treat each shoot in the same professional and positive way. We work with the latest gear to get that cinematic look, and we’re always pushing to get that ‘wow’ shot that will make your video stand out.
We understand that many of our clients have day jobs to crack on with, so don’t worry if you can’t spend all day with us. But if you do fancy escaping the daily grind to check out the filming you are always welcome.
We like to work on the edit while it’s fresh, so we’ll aim to get your project in the edit suites in the days following your shoot. If you’re looking for an even faster turnaround, just let us know. We’ve worked on same day edits with instant YouTube uploads for our clients.
Our production company's skilled editors will cut your footage together to create something that looks and sounds GREAT, with royalty free music tracks and creative text treatments.
You can even come in to watch your video take shape, we’ve got strong coffee and posh biscuits to keep you going!
When your video is finished and approved, we’ll send your final files both digitally and on a USB stick in our bespoke presentation box. We know how important it is to get your content online, so we also offer help and advice on getting your video onto YouTube, Facebook and Twitter so that you can share it across social channels.
