Video Production

Lights, Camera, Action
Video content is one of the most engaging formats to communicate effectively to your audience.

We have strong in house capabilities to plan, script, film and edit video solutions that fit with your brand image. Whether your needs are short explainer videos to promote a product or service or an animated introduction to an integrated campaign, we can help. We pride ourselves on having all capabilities in house, saving you time and money.

Why should my organisation use video?

There is a common misconception that 'video' entails high budget Hollywood-style cinema, which carries with it expectations of time-intensive filming schedules and inconvenience for those involved. However, video is a rich form of media with different options available to suit your budget. We will work with you to offer a bespoke solution to fit your requirements.

Not only has video been proven to boost conversion rates by 80%, it also builds trust and credibility by adding personality to your content. Putting a face to a brand is a great way of adding a human side to your business, with video being an ideal format to show this. It’s also an opportunity to engage more personally with your audience, encouraging social shares and building brand exposure.

In an increasingly digital world where we have a variety of viewing platforms, video is extremely easy to consume and makes learning convenient and easy. And if this wasn’t enough to show you how amazing video is for your business, search engines love video, meaning your content has a greater chance of ranking higher and therefore generating more exposure and leads.

oUR vIDEO pRODUCTION Services

  • Planning/pre-production - we take your brief and plan the direction for your video solution, keeping in close communication so you can have as much or as little involvement/input as you wish. 
  • Scripting & storyboarding - working alongside your vision, we visually plan the structure and flow of the video so you can get a feel for the final product. We also offer scripting support through our communications team to ensure your message is clear, concise, and on brand.
  • Production (filming) - we use our professional equipment and expertise to film on location with you, using the planning procedures and communication to ensure the day(s) runs smoothly. On set, we pride ourselves on efficiency and organisation, making your colleagues feel at ease in front of the camera.
  • Post production - we bring the footage back to our studio and provide a quick turn-around. We have skills within on screen text/graphics, audio refining and colour grading to ensure your final video not only looks the best it can, but also tells a clear message.
  • Animation - from logo animations through to animated text explainer videos, we have in-house capabilities to provide a solution for your needs.
  • Interactive - we have software capabilities to produce interactive videos, where users follow a journey and select options within the video which lead to different destinations. For example, if you’re a coffee shop, you could have a video showing the experience in store. There could be a clip of someone at the till and the audience has to interact on screen what drink they wish to chose. This can then show their selected drink being made and ask them to interact by entering their email for a coupon. This is a great solution to learn more about your community and obtain contact details for future valued customers.

FAQs

What if I want a video produced but do not want to do an interview on camera?

Not a problem at all! We have the capabilities to use on-screen text or source external voice artists to still portray your message in a compelling manner. 

How long is the video production process?

The typical process can take anywhere from days to weeks to months depending on the complexity of the output you require. We will always be on task to ensure we get your content to you as soon as we can.

How many people will Mackman bring on the shoot?  

Depending on the type of video and scale of the project, this will vary. When visiting we always make sure we are non-disruptive and provide good entertainment, getting the job done effectively, creating an enjoyable experience for you and your colleagues. 

Can you add graphics and branding?

Of course, it’s what we do best here at Mackman! We will ensure we keep your branding consistent throughout any video materials and we can quickly create new graphics if required. 

What’s the ‘score’ with audio?

If you require any background audio, we will source this for you and provide you with an audio license for the track which can be used multiple times in the future too. This does come at an additional cost.
