Film: 'Bring Out Your Dead'

Our aim was to build visibility, tell a strong narrative and indirectly boost sales.

Promo video for emerging vibrant Swindon rock three-piece

In a tiny house and a sodden field, we filmed this 3-minute promo video for the Dead Royalties and Secret Chord Records. The video weaves together the stories of the over-worked living, a table shrine to the dead and the golden bullsh*t of the unwanted desk-job. The band were a joy to work with and committed their all to every shot. It was a 3-night shoot, a 4 day edit and around 4 days pre-production.


Dead Royalties are a new Wiltshire-based band and 'Bring Out Your Dead' is their first EP. The band asked us to produce a narrative piece which would project the song's theme of rejecting dead-end jobs.

Our aim was to build visibility and indirectly boost sales.


We created a triple-narrative video themed on the daily grind of unwanted office jobs. We filmed in 2 cramped rooms in the bass player's house, at Pewsey railway station, a Bradford On Avon field over 4 nights and in a dairy farm during daytime. Loved working with this band - very playful, very experimental.

"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."
