Film: 'Journeys Start'

Our aim was simple: increase appeal, by revealing a creative and collaborative origin to a growing fanbase.

Micro-rockumentary and profiles for Virgin-signed rock band

We created this micro-rockumentary for fans, for The Struts' website. This short film profile explores how the band approach their work and how they started. It was a 1-day shoot, a 2 day edit and around 2 days pre-production. Great to work with people who so clearly know their destiny.


The Struts are a Virgin-signed UK-based rock band. They've produced their first album and developed a rich vibrant and harmonious sound with plenty of swagger. They wanted a short documentary to mark their origins and approach to collaboration. The challenge was to tell the story with candour and bite.

Our aim was simple: increase appeal, by revealing a creative and collaborative origin to a growing fanbase.


We created a micro-rockumentary video. We visited the band's house in Derby and loved filming in their music room. We also filmed at their rehearsal space outside to add a flavour of live performance. We cut the whole piece together and fine-tuned with the help of the band's management.

"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."
