“We don’t need video content”
I hear this statement a lot from a range of industries with often diverse target markets. As someone who has grown up making videos, and as someone who realises just how powerful the medium is it almost always surprises me when I hear this. Blocks of text on websites put people off and stock images say nothing about your business however for many businesses this is still the norm for their websites. I am not going to list a load of statistics, I’ll save that for another post, I will however tell you that video is the most effective way of getting your message to your market. Video enables you to show your market what your company is about, your people, your products, the pride you have in your work, no other medium can achieve this in the same way video can.
That said, modern video production companies are still fighting against a now out of date image of video production.
“It is expensive.” It really isn’t, our prices start at only £349, less than a small table at a 1 day business event, and that’s before you’ve forked out for flyers, banners, staff etc.
“It is time consuming” Nope, we pride ourselves on being unintrusive, before, during, and after shoots.
“We have nowhere to put a video” This is the worst one for me, everyone literally has a video player in their pockets nowadays. There are endless places to get your market to engage with your video content, so many in fact I’m going to need bullet points;
- Your website
- Reddit (hugely overlooked this one)
- Embed in your mailouts
- Display at conferences
- Play it in your reception area
- Tv advertising
- You can even project it on your building if you want.
And thats just some. Not every business is going to need to use all of these mediums, you don’t want to be wasting time on platforms that aren’t relevant, but thats where we help out. We know where and how to use your video as effectively as possible, just as we can advise you on what type of video would work best for your business.

When we get some rare downtime we like to make little fun videos and giffs for our own amusement and for social media, it keeps those creative juices flowing, and keeps our brand fresh.
No matter what your business…

NUSU asked us to attend most of the events that they held over the academic year and create a montage video out of the footage.
Here we were asked to produce a tongue in cheek tour of their newly refurbished student union building and the facilities on offer to new students. NUSU didn’t want anything too wacky or anything too formal either, they were pleased with out approach of having a tour guide who took himself more seriously than anyone else did.
NUSU used our video to launch their brand new website, as part of their existing social media campaigns and to encourage potential students to apply to Newcastle University.
NUSU also requested we document the annual sports event The Stan Calvert Cup. Newcastle and Northumbria Universities do battle over the coveted cup every year. Here is the video we produced.

We were asked by private health company Black & Banton to create a promotional video to demonstrate the services they offer. They used the video across their social media, on screens on their premises and on their website.
“Nimbus were a pleasure to work with from start to finish. They showed a lot of flexibility in getting to offsite shooting locations at short notice, just to capture a particular moment we needed. From initial ideas to the final product, Nimbus were enthusiastic, inventive and always striving to deliver a quality product. We would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for video services.”

We were asked by swing singer Glen Roughead to produce a promotional video at one of his shows at the Live Theatre in Newcastle which both demonstrated both the quiet soulful side of his performances and also the energetic side and his ability to get a venue jumping.
“I have worked with Nimbus Productions now on a number of occasions (and have them booked for future events) they have always delivered exactly what I wanted. Their laid back style has helped me feel at ease when conveying my ideas and their input have taken all my projects to the next level. Always very efficient in getting back to you straight away and always gone that extra mile for me to really make what I’m trying to achieve a fantastic product. I would have no hesitate in recommending them to anyone.”
