We're still making videos (and podcasts!)

Amongst the constantly shifting landscape created by COVID-19, we understand how important it is to keep your lines of communication open. Be that internally to your staff, or externally to your clients and customers.

Our entire team is set up to work remotely, ensuring we can still produce our films with the highest production values.

In this post, you will find our solutions to creating video content in these challenging times to keep your business running as usual.

Why should you be sharing content now?

  • No one likes radio silence. Be that internal or external, your audience want to hear from you, especially right now.

  • If you thought making a film means having a physical crew on the ground, you’re in for a pleasant (and cost effective) surprise.

  • Reassure your employees and keep them motivated by showing them that you still care about making content for them.

  • Your clients want to hear from you. Everyone is trying to muddle their way through this uncertain time and they want to know how you’re doing and how you can continue to service their needs.

  • There are so many options for creating high quality, quick and cost effective content. See how we can help on the following pages…

Podcasts

Now more than ever, how you communicate with your clients, employees and stakeholders is of the utmost importance. Rather than sending a cold mailer, it is much more reassuring for them to hear your voice. Podcasts are the fastest and most cost effective way of speaking directly to your audience.

Podcast Shout

 

We’ll set you up with the required microphones and recording equipment, sending them to you via post and then helping you to virtually set up the equipment. You would then record your podcast, and send us the raw files. From here we will tidy up the audio, edit as required, and add sound design.

If you wanted to make the creation of your podcast content go even further, we could create shorter 30 second edits summarising the key messaging and use animation to bring these to life as short videos. 

WSP Smart Thinking

WSP | Smart Thinking Podcasts

Here is a series of podcasts that we produced for WSP. They already had their own recording equipment set up, so once they had recorded their audio, they sent us all the raw files and we created the podcasts for them.

Reediting: You already have so much content - why not use it?

Casual Films Different Uses for Video-198749-edited

Ok, so it might not be feasible for us to film on location with you any time soon… but did you know that we hold onto all of the footage we have captured for you previously? This means we’re on standby to create a cost effective repurposed film whenever you need it.

We created films for Rolls-Royce and BMW Group just using existing footage that we held in our archive library.

In these instances, we carefully grade the footage to give it a consistent and on brand look and feel throughout. Watch how we grade our films here.

Alternatively, we could use your existing assets to create an animation, similarly to a series of films we produced for WSP.

But what if you don’t have any existing footage? We could create a bespoke edit using our wealth of online stock footage, communicating your messaging with a voiceover, spritzing text or dynamic typography…whatever you need to get your message out there fast!

Re-edit of existing footage

Turnaround time: 8 day

Cost: £6,00 - £8,000 / $ 6,000 - $10,000

Stock edit

Turnaround time: 1 week

Virtual meetings & event solutions

103020220_800x346During this unprecedented time, many planned meetings and events will be happening remotely. But there’s no reason why you can’t share them with a wider audience.

Using the latest tech, we can remotely capture video chats and virtual round table discussions from anywhere in the world, allowing you to bring your speakers to your audience, wherever they may be.

Once captured, we’ll edit and package the footage. This could be a full version of a round table discussion, or the key takeaway points from a Skype call. We can animate power point slides in time to your presentation, or even bring the content to life through animation, similar to this example.

So if you’re thinking of cancelling or postponing an event, meeting, pitch or presentation, get in touch and we will find a way to make this possible virtually when you can’t be there in person.
