Importance of video on the internet

On 05, Nov 2012 | No Comments | In Our Blog | By admin

Video has become an integral part of the internet and it’s now gotten to a point where people expect to see video content on websites and social networking pages. A staggering 86% of the population watched video online last year (newmediatrendwatch.com) as broadband speeds increase. It’s easy to see why more companies are embracing online advertising to reach this market.

Making a video successful on the internet nowadays isn’t just about making a video and putting it up on youtube and praying, videos have to stand out and be noticed in order to truly ‘go viral’. The way you integrate your video products as part of your larger online marketing is vital, we can help you build an exciting campaign which will engage your intended audience and get people talking about your company.

Here is an example of the kind of animated video we can produce to advertise businesses.

Dave discovers how to turn his business around from Superveillance on Vimeo.

We completed this video to promote a competition ran by Microsoft, Codeworks, and Sunderland Software City. More info can be found on our Imagine Cup page

We also provide video production services for events, which can be used to advertise future events. We produced this for a hair show earlier this year, more info here

Because pretty much everyone watches video of some description on a daily basis, people know what a rubbish video looks like, everyone is a critic! We use only the latest HD video, sound recording and lighting equipment and work closely with you to provide videos which aren’t only high in visual and audio quality but are also tailored to your audience and innovative enough to get people talking about them, which is the whole point right?

We have loads of ideas for exciting videos, get in touch via our contact page for a chat about how we could work together

The Making Of The Making Of U – After Adoption

The Making Of U

The Making Of U

We recently completed a half hour documentary for charity After Adoption. The documentary was shot in Newcastle and Gateshead and covers the production of childrens book ‘The Making Of U’ by a group of adopted young people working under the pseudonym Kendra Fairbairn. Together with facilitator Paul Summers and illustrator Josie Brookes they created a beautifully written and illustrated book which is aimed at key stage 1 and deals with isssues such as identity and belonging.

“The Making of U is a book for all those kids just trying to work out who they are. Written by a group of adopted young people and stunningly illustrated by Josie Brookes,
The Making of U tells a story of self discovery and adventure which resonates with children and adults alike. Addressing questions every child needs to consider – Who am I?”
The Making Of U has recieved great reviews on several radio stations as well as in The Journal and The Guardian newspapers
We were present at every development meeting and recorded approximatly 20 hours worth of footage from the very start of the project all the way through to the book launch at Seven Stories Centre For Childrens Books

Our documentary, ingeniously titled ‘The Making Of…The Making Of U’ (no idea how we came up with that) has so far been screened at Tyneside Cinema and the After Adoption general meeting.
The book is available here from Amazon for £6.99
We hope to make excerpts of the documentary available online at some point once we have recieved clearence from all involved.
