Film: 'Art Revelation'

Our goal was to help win new donators by increasing appeal and clarity online, so crowdfunding could be raised and membership increased.

Donation explainer for edgy art magazine publishers Artlyst

At a private gallery, we created this 2-minute explainer video for prospective donators to art magazine Artlyst. Our piece was used on the ArtLyst page on the Crowdshed website. It's helping raise over £40k for this onlinen specialist in emerging art. Our piece explains the magazine's purpose and investor benefits and it was a 1-day shoot, 2-day edit and roughly 2 days' pre-production. Loads of fun working with these ahead-of-the-curvers!


ArtLyst is the UK's leading emerging art magazine. At the time of filming, they were expanding their donator base and they wanted to reach more high net-worth individuals, artists, collectors and advertisers alike.

Our goal was to help win new donators by increasing appeal and clarity online.


We created a short donator film. We filmed a structured interview with the editor, and helped him feel at ease in front of our cameras. We also inserted stills of the magazine and supporting material from the website.

"It’s easy to find someone who can use a video camera. We struggled to find the skills to get beautiful shots which looked professional not gimmicky and the help to efficiently tell our story – and affordably. But then we found Marketing Films. We loved working with Tim – and got a great video which tells our story quickly, efficiently – and beautifully."

Tom Ball, CEO, Desklodge

"I would highly recommend Marketing Films. We’ve been working together on video project for NVM Private Equity and they've succeeded in bringing our company to life. Financial services is perceived as a very dull subject, but they have injected creativity, stylishness and successfully shown the real world of business investment. They've shown that it’s not just about the numbers, but the people working hard to make it all work. They're passionate about what they do and extremely enthusiastic. They have this amazing talent at transforming the most wooden interviewee into a natural."
