Food - a case study

The brief for the videos featured on this page was to create about 1 minute of visually attractive material for each of 14 rural food businesses on a list.  There was a tight schedule.  We telephoned each business beforehand to discuss existing and potential filming opportunities.  Many ideas were devised on the filming day and others during editing.  2-3 businesses were filmed per day over the course of several days.

Sancler Yoghurt

Sancler Yoghurt from the 'A Fresh Perspective' series.

One of around thirteen short videos that were produced to showcase food production in the Carmarthenshire countryside. There is music on some of these videos, but primarily they were made to be viewed silently on a large plasma screen at shows. Delegates would not have been able to hear a narration, but the video images were used as a way of attracting delegates to a stand. The NEC, Birmingham, was one of many venues where the videos were employed.

Ffos Y Ffin Brewery

Ffos Y Ffin Brewery from the 'A Fresh Perspective' series.

One of around thirteen short videos that were produced to showcase food production in the Carmarthenshire countryside. There is not any sound on some of these videos as they were made to be displayed on a large plasma screen at shows. A narration would have been lost amongst the crowd noise, so the visuals were what we concentrated on. The NEC, Birmingham, was one of many venues where the videos were employed.

One of around thirteen short videos that were produced to showcase food production in the Carmarthenshire countryside.

One of around thirteen short videos that were produced to showcase food production in the Carmarthenshire countryside.

Add a narration

These videos are a very short step from being commercials: tighten the editing; add some attractive colour grading and effects; and add some suitable music and a persuasive narration with a voice of your choice.

Any business can have a professional commercial-like video for a very reasonable investment.

Sadly, it's a classic error.  Companies produce their video but do not maximise its potential.  Talk to us and our fellow marketing experts to avoid falling into that particular pit.
