We filmed this 2-minute explainer video for prospective investors, for the Business First website and their CrowdCube page. The piece explains the investor proposition for the magazine. It was a 3-hour shoot, a 1-day edit and about 2 day's pre-production. Lovely to work with, those enterprising people at Business First Magazine.


Business First is a new London enterprise magazine. A first in 10 years. It reveals the strategies, challenges and personal stories of entrepreneurs, business owners and leaders to a London readership. So it's a publication very close to our hearts. But like any other new business, it needed invetment to get started. The challenge was to demonstrate publishing pedigree and purpose to new investors.

Our goal was simple: win new investors by building reach and trust online.


We created a short investor proposition video. We filmed a presentation by the Editor-in-Chief, an ex-broadcaster comfortable in front of 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."

"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."
