Film: 'A Vibrant Musical Home'

To produce a home page video which would comprehensively explain the range of instruments and the ethos of the Progress Music Academy. The video was to be used on their website and potentially also social media

Progress Music is an exceptional Birmingham based Music Academy intent in teaching through performance, as opposed to more academic methodologies. We were asked to create a single home page taster video, plus a series of social media snippets to help their message get across to potential new customers.

THE CHALLENGE

We faced two big challenges here, the first being that budget and timescale were both very tight and secondly, we had no students to work with! The only students that agreed to take part made themselves for observational footage rather than interviews.

HOW WE HELPED

We pre-agreed a range of interview topics and promotional messages that the Academy wanted to project. Filming took place in Birmingham and were delighted to discover the open, honest and unusually collaborative techniques of the teachers at the Academy. This allowed us to source gig footage from suitable libraries to enrich the interview and taster pieces.

We spent some time choosing the right supporting material for this project which truly helped to bring to life the pieces, given how little time we had to collect any really useful active B-roll material (i.e students undertaking lessons were not available to us)

A simply home page was then editing together with a narrative which set out the Academy’s comprehensive and collaborative composition.

LEARNINGS

We finished the home page taster along with about 45 social media clips to standards much higher than the client had expected. Naturally, they were delighted and immediately deployed the videos on their website and on social media.Here are a few of our own learnings from the making of suite of explainer videos. Hopefully they can help you prepare for your next production.

"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."
