Film: 'Location, Location, Location'

Our aim was to build awareness of the Business First Magazine article and the widening OS proposition.

Teaser film piece for Business First article on Ordnance Survey

We created this short explainer video for Ordnance Survey and Business First Magazine (full article). The piece covers the key points of the magazine article and reveals the breadth and depth of the firm's offering. It was wonderful to work with such an intelligence and tech-based product - and the building has to be seen to be believed. The production was a half-day shoot, a one-day edit, and around 2 days of pre-production and stills research.


Ordnance Survey is the UK's oldest map-maker, is a government department in its own right, and is now venturing into commercial services in new ways.

Our aim was to build awareness of the Business First Magazine article and the widening OS proposition.


We filmed the entire magazine interview as if it were a TV interview and edited together highlights to reflect the main topics of the article. Then we filmed a top and tail outside the new iconic building, and finally we researched stills inside the OS database and flickr account to select relevant and modern imagery.

It's a little too early for results yet, but Business First is happy with the piece and it's now in use on their website.We learned from this creating this short film for Ordnance Survey. We're sharing a few of our learnings here in the hope that they'll help you prepare for your next next video.

"Marketing Films helped us reach new investors by explaining a complex proposition simply. Wonderful work. Lead by Tim, their team delivered broadcast quality to our urgent timescales and on budget. Superb results."

Waseem Shiraz, Chief Operating Officer at Cambridge Quantum Computing

"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."
