Film: 'Accelerated Growth'

Our aim was to create a short case study film that would help NVM build trust with prospective customers.

Business profile of Cawood Scientific for NVM Private Equity

Over a few summer days we filmed this 2-minute case study video of laboratory testers Cawood Scientific and NVM, their backers. NVM wanted to demo their investment work to prospective customers. The film explains the main elements and benefits of NVM's equity partnership with Cawood. Filmed in Bracknell, York and Reading, it was a 3-day shoot, a 3-day edit and approximately 3 days pre-production. We had such a thrill working with successful entrepreneurs close up. Thanks, Cawood.


Cawood Scientific is the UK's largest independent soil-testing laboratory. They provide analyses to the agricultural, animal, amenity and environmental industries. Although they were market leaders they had a tendency to understate their true value to prospective clients. Cold prospects weren't getting an initial sense of the firm's capabilities and value. The challenge was to demonstrate these right at the start of the sales process, online.

Our aim was to create a short case study film that would help NVM build trust with prospective customers.


We created a new pilot case study video. Based on an NVM agricultural science client, we interviewed the client directors and filmed their wonderful labs to illustrate where the investment has gone. We gathered good positive feedback from the interviews, coaching the directors who were a little nervous on camera. We even got up at dawn to film fallow and cropped fields to dramatise the piece. And finally we tied it all together with an NVM interview about the project challenges and their approach.

"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."
