“WE NEED VIDEO AND WE NEED IT NOW!” I hear you cry – but where to start and more importantly can you be sure it’s going to be worth the investment?

Our Manchester-based MD Thea and London Exec Producer Luke host fun and interactive sessions where we share our top tips – and the pitfalls to side step – when you’re choosing a production partner.

The session covers the dos and don’ts of turning your client’s expectations into video reality. You’ll learn how to ensure a smooth production process that guarantees results including:

– Setting a strong brief

– Balancing production values with budget

– How to select the right production partner

– The importance of amplifying your video

– A collaborative mindset for success

We also go into businesses and help you get better results using great video content. We’ll come to you and take your teams on a journey via our award-winning films for everything from sustainable surf gear, revolutionary sex toys and posh fridges to data centres, distant destinations and dirty burgers.

We’ll also help you and your team spot opportunities and when might be the right time to use video.

The introductory session is an overview of the Maker Methodology – how to make great video that gets great results. Using our films to recruit new staff, change behaviour, move viewers to action and launch brands and products for the likes of NHS, Stylist, Gaggenau and AstraZeneca, we’ll share with you some of the top tips we’ve learned in 15 years of making great video content. It lasts about an hour and is free.
