A Story In Every Frame - cost effective videos

We're a London based video production studio that aims to inspire you through stories about people who defy the times we live in.

We believe in cost effective video production and using video as a powerful tool. This is what we`ve set out to prove and offer: that high quality video is accessible, fun to produce and brings back high returns on investment.

One of the things we`re proud of is that a small team of 5 people (director, camera people, editor and marketing person) offer video production in UK in a streamlined manner: fast, crystal clear visuals, on budget and on brand.

If you plan to do one of the following, please get in touch and we`d be glad to help: vox-pops, interviews, promotional videos, social media video campaigns, live streaming, end of year videos, training videos, masterclasses, e-learning videos, events filming. 

We love a good challenge and we look forward to hear from you.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am a Project Manager at a media company which is home to various marketing publications.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire London Video Stories?

We hired London Video Stories after a disastrous experience with a previous videographer. The aim was for London Video Stories to film, edit and produce four high quality videos of leading marketers for a client of ours.

What were your goals for this project?

We hoped that by producing a series of quality videos for a client, we would then go on to offer this service to other clients. This was a first for us as a team so we were keen for this to be a success.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Someone else in our company has worked with the London Video Stories team before and spoke highly of their attention to detail and quality of work.

Describe the video(s) and the process in detail.

Film maker Mihai worked with us and the client to work out what we actually wanted from them. He was quick to offer suggestions and ideas which was ideal. When the filming took place, Mihai set up his filming equipment and took time ensuring the shots were of a good quality and the interviewee also felt at ease. The editing process was also a good experience. Mihai worked alongside myself and the client to ensure edits were made in line with our vision. Even after the project was finished, Mihai was on hand for any last minute requests.

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

Mihai was the film maker sent be London Video Stories for our project. He was the person we worked with consistently throughout the process and also provided various edits once all of the filming has been completed. His responses via email were speedy and of great value. His multiple edits were sent through quickly and were of a high quality.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

We had a rocky start with another videographer and were at the point were we may lose business. London Video Stories put us and our client completely at ease and were professional throughout. This led to the client being keen to work with us again next year and being proud to share the content on their website.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Mihai worked hard on providing edits quickly and efficiently. We used a tool to make edits at various points of the videos and Mihai was also helpful by sharing his thoughts and ideas to make the process as smooth as possible. Communication was excellent throughout and we felt looked after.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The knowledge and professionalism was fantastic and the quality of the videos was very good. I felt comfortable working with the team and confident that they would do a good job. I was happy to introduce our client to them. We all worked alongside each other well.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I was thoroughly impressed with London Video Stories work and would be very happy to work with them again in the future. The professionalism displayed and high quality of the work was incredible and on a different level compared to suppliers I have worked with before. Mihai particularly worked quickly and efficiently and was always on hand for any questions we might have. I don't have a bad word to say about this team!

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The work produced by London Video Stories continuously meets expectations and receives glowing feedback from clients and users. Combining their wide expertise and ability to deliver customized work, they’re a valuable, reliable partner across various projects. 

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m a director of a marketing company. We have two divisions, one is a publication to provide business information and the other provides e-learning solutions.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with London Video Stories?

We had been using some videos for our e-learning courses, but they weren’t very sophisticated. We wanted a higher production value with full animation and more professional filming. This led us to hire London Video Stories to do full productions of our larger e-learning courses. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Since starting our engagement, London Video Stories have created several videos for our courses and products. The videos are animated, filmed using green-screens, or a combination of both. They direct, produce, film, and edit the videos for us. 

What is the team composition?

We typically work with four people from their team, including a camera-person, director, producer, and hair and makeup individual. 

How did you come to work with London Video Stories?

In the past, they had worked with our marketing team on short animated clips for social media and I liked their work. After our marketing department recommended them, I looked at samples of the work, interviewed the team, and we went from there. 

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent over £100,000 (approximately $130,000 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working together in October 2016 and our engagement is ongoing. We just wrapped up a big project and are working with them on edits, currently. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement? 

Our clients love the courses and we receive a lot of feedback from subscribers who are very happy with the style and production. The constant feedback is great, so we’re pleased with that. 

How did London Video Stories perform from a project management standpoint?

They have been really good, which is why I love working with them. Every single project has always come in under budget and on time. They’re easy to work with. All of my processes have been improved by working with them. For example, they’ve given me some great solutions that make the editing process much quicker. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

Not only are they always available, but they also provide a very personalized service. Even for last minute things, they make time for us and I can always get them on the phone. If I need them at an event or to attend a photoshoot at a moment's notice, they can do it. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

I can’t think of anything for them to do better. 

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Ask to see a few samples of the work they’ve done since they’ve done a wide range of projects. After watching the different productions they’ve done, I knew I wanted to work with them.
