QUESTIONS...

How do I get a quote?


The best place to start is by contacting us and explaining your ideas and objectives. From there, we will contact you to give as accurate a costing as we can and arrange a 1-1 meeting where we will take you through the details.




How long does a film take?


The length of time that a film can take to produce varies, however we can fast track a project, should there be a tight deadline. A typical 1-2 minute promotional film can be completed in 10 working days, depending on variables; availability of interviewees, locations, etc




What is the process of producing promotional film?


  1. Distribution. The whole process starts with understanding who your target market is and establishing how to best reach them through film.
  2. Scripting. With distribution in mind, we will develop a storyboard and/or a script that describes / illustrates the film to give you a clear idea of what the final product will look like. We wil write the script for VO, for interviews, supply a list of questions for approval and provide basic media training to put your interviewees at ease.
  3. Production. This is where we bring together all the visual ellements as described in the script for filming.
  4. Post Production. This is where the completed footage is compiled in an edit suite, motion graphics can be added and VO's can be recorded. On larger projects this can be happeninig whilst subsequent footage is still in production. The ongoing project can be viewed and amended from the edit suite or via uploaded film.
  5. Mastering. Once the film has been approved and signed off, we will supply you with a High Definition master copy of your film along with arranging duplication to Blu-Ray, DVD or USB drives. We will also upload to the web and social media platforms of your choice.




Will I be able to make changes to the film before it is delivered?


Absolutely! Collaboration is an essential part of what we do; it ensures we deliver you the best product possible. You can come directly to the edit, or we can set up a satellite meeting so you can see the entire production process.




What formats do you shoot on?


We can shoot in 4K, HDCam, XDCam and VCHD. We pride ourselves in keeping up with the latest technology to enhance the end result, so we can shoot and deliver on any format.




Do I need to know exactly what I want?


Not at all! We understand that sometimes you’ll have a rough idea of what you want, but need additional creative input. It's what we do! We will take your idea and work with you to create something amazing!




How much does a video cost to produce?


It’s difficult to give a “one size fits all” figure, there are many variables. Typically, projects range between from £1,500 and £10,000.




Can you arrange talented voice overs / actors?


Yes, we always keep a list of talented individuals, locally and further afield, who have many years’ experience. During the pre-production phase, we can help you find the perfect voice over artist or presenter to suit your business needs.




Can I have a video updated?


Absoulutely, we create our videos using digital technology, meaning that we can quickly add, subtract or alter parts of your video to include new information or alter obsolete content.




What happens to the unused content?
