Film: 'Standing Up, Standing Out'

Our aim was to build interest in the article in the Business First Magazine and the work of Outstanding.

Teaser film piece for Business First article on Outstanding

We created this short article teaser for LGBT executive network 'Outstanding' and Business First Magazine. The piece trails key points of the magazine article and reveals the core principles of the network and its membership. Superb fun working with Suki - we predict a seat in parliament before the decade's out! The production was a half-day shoot, a one-day edit, and around a day of pre-production and stills research.


OUTstanding is a not-for-profit professional network for LGBT executives and their allies. They promote the talent of LGBT executives and encourage them to be themselves.

Our aim was to build interest in the article in the Business First Magazine and the work of Outstanding.


We filmed the entire magazine interview as if it were a TV interview and edited together highlights to trail the topics of the written article. Then on a cold day, we filmed Nick's top and tail outside their central London offices, and finally we took B roll footage inside their offices.

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 Outstanding. 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."
