A little movemement
goes a long way.
If the wild popularity of TikTok is anything to go by, video really has never been more important. Our in-house video team here in Hampshire are committed to producing not only beautiful looking and sounding video content—but video that genuinely connects with your customers on all levels.
With some of the best equipment money can buy, an in-house team that includes all videographers, directors, drone pilots, project managers, editors and animators—as well as an enviable network of the best creatives across the whole of the UK, if you need a video producing then you might just be in the right place.
Watch our 2022 video showreel below, which sums up some of our favourite projects that we’ve worked on recently for world renowned brands such as Google and Disney, as well as domestic powerhouses from M Group Services to Bicester Village.
We’ve shot our fair share or interviews, from intimate talking-to-camera pieces regarding sensitive topics—all the way through to multi-camera interviews with simultaneous speakers on a panel.
Video ads aren’t what they used to be. Gone are the days of enormous crews (and enormous budgets). It’s amazing what you can produce with a small team and a great idea.
Our studio isn’t just for photography. We do all sorts of product promo videos in-house, from quirky stop-motions for social media to complete product line launch videos.

What video equipment do you use?
We have a large range of video equipment for use on projects. This includes a Sony FX6, Blackmagic Cinema Cameras, a range of Sony mirrorless systems such as the A7R IV, DJI Mavic Pro drones, various DJI gimbals and stabilisers, Godox continuous lighting, numerous lighting modifiers and professional audio equipment. If we need any additional equipment for a project, we can source this due to our connections with rental suppliers. This enables us to produce stunning 4K video content at high frame rates for dramatic slow motion footage.
Do you use drones?
Yes! Three of our team are certified drone operators and able to carry out all pre-flight paperwork and aerial capture using DJI Mavic Pro drones.
What is your minimum order value?
All of our video projects are rounded into half days (4 x hours), whole days (8 x hours) and extended days (9 x hours and over). This minimum of half a day is due to all of the set-up time required for video work and to ensure we have plenty of time to capture all of the required content.
What is your average project value?
Video projects vary enormously in scale and cost. Taking an average of all video projects completed over the last 18 months, our average project value for video work is in the £3000-5000 + VAT range. Some projects were much smaller, around £1500-2000 + VAT for a day on site and a relatively simple edit. And some are much larger, where we had multiple videographers over multiple days, with projects reaching well into the tens of thousands. We aim to keep our approach and team as simple as possible for all projects, which results in lower costs overall.
What other costs are involved?
Our rates outlined above are for all labour associated with the project, not just the time on site. So additional time and costs will be in any pre-production required (such as paperwork for flying drones, storyboarding etc), as well as post-production to put the video together. All of these costs will be compiled and provided to you as a complete quote prior to booking to avoid any additional costs later down the line. The only other costs are then associated directly with the project, which could include mileage at £0.45pm from GU35 0FX, travel time at £60 + VAT per hour over an hour from GU35 0FX, and any accommodation, sustenance or direct hire costs for models etc. Again, all known costs will be stipulated prior to booking.
Any unknown costs will be communicated with you as they arise and added to the final invoice. This could be if any changes are made to the project as we move along which increases the time required for the project or required additional spend on our part.
We charge 50% extra for any ‘extended’ hours over an 8 hour day or outside of standard working hours. Which is an hourly rate of £180 + VAT.
What are your turnaround times?
Turnaround times for video projects vary hugely depending on your requirements. Our standard turnaround time for any project is 12 working days, but this is more of a general guideline and large or complicated video projects can push this up significantly. The best option is to provide us with your required turnaround time at the point of enquiring so that we can see if it’s achievable and provide estimated delivery dates based on your project brief.
What are your payment terms?
Our standard payment terms for most projects are a 50% deposit at the point of booking, and the final balance due under standard NET30 terms upon completion. Any adjustments to the project (such as additional requirements or removed images), will be reflected in the final 50% payment.
For very large projects, we bring the the deposit down to 25% to minimise the up-front cost. We don’t have a threshold for this change and is done on a case-by-case basis depending on the size of the project and any up-front costs required by us (such as booking models/locations etc).
For very small projects (usually under £250 + VAT), we will likely invoice the full amount up-front at the point of booking. Again, this is done on a case-by-case basis.
Can you source models?
Yes! We use a combination of UK based modelling agencies for sourcing models for shoots depending on your requirements, with some agencies centred more on fashion models and others with more varied ranges of people, families and sometimes actors or influencers.
The cost does vary between models and between agencies, so we don’t charge a fixed cost for models but instead on a project by project basis. There are also licensing fees to pay when using an agency if you wish to extend usage of the images and the models likeness past a specific length of time. This is known as gaining usage ‘in perpetuity’ and comes at an additional cost which we can negotiate with the agency and include in the project cost.
We also do casting calls through Instagram for models if your requirements are less specific. This also means that we can liaise directly with the model instead of going through an agency, which often allows us to negotiate better usage terms or more favourable rates. Again, these costs will be included at the point of quoting. We do include an extra couple of hours pre-production time to cover model casting, though this generally works out a more cost-effective option despite the additional pre-production time.
Can you source hair and makeup artists?
Yes! We have a number of preferred hair and make-up suppliers which we can arrange for your project. They’re not part of our internal team (though we might get to this point) but we work closely with just a small number of key suppliers and use them regularly. We will do all of the arranging and management, so you don’t need to worry about this side of things. Their cost will also be included in the overall project quote.
Do you produce animations?
Yes! This is a service we’re really looking to grow this year to allow us to produce more diverse and even higher production value video work for our clients. We primarily produce 2D animations using software such as After Effects, but are currently branching out into 3D animation work in Cinema 4D.
