Live Demontrations

Apr19

Videomachine was recently commissioned to produce a series of live and pre-recorded scenarios to demonstrate the technical capabilities of UK Broadband’s 4G LTE network, utilising Huawei hardware.

Small, specialist crew

Using a very small crew of just 4 specialists, and filmed in only 3 days, we created a full video, parts of which were used in a live demonstration, mixed with some real life scene creation involving a number of actors on the streets on London.

The result was a high impact demonstration with compelling and memorable content.

Video Packages

May15

Introducing our new Video Packages

Video production for your company and/or website often fits into a simple, easy-to-budget package. So here at Videomachine, we have devised a structured package deal system, so you will have a pretty good idea what your costs will be for a basic video project. Obviously, we cannot include certain extras – these packages are not designed to be fixed price solutions, but for the majority of productions, these costs will serve as quite an accurate guide.

Filming Only

With this option, you buy filming with a 2-person film crew in half-day amounts. We provide the unedited footage on disk, or via the internet. The film crew would comprise a single HD camera and sound recordist.

Cost £550

Presenter 2-5 mins

This package consists of a 2-person crew, an autocue, and a half-day filming. We will edit the footage and provide a finished presentation video.

Cost £960

Interview – One camera 3-6 mins

This option includes an interview with an off-camera interviewer asking pre-prepared questions. Our director will work with you before filming begins to get the right feel for the questions. The session will normally last half a day.

Cost £1035

Interview – Two cameras & B-roll 5-10 mins

A more professional feel to this interview technique is achieved by having two cameras during the interview, and our Producer/Director will ask the interviewee questions. We will also try to capture “b-roll” footage of the location, which, once edited, will give a really professional finish to the production. Again, this should take no longer than half a day.

Cost £1250

Company Promo/Showcase 3-5 mins

This package consists of a day filming at your company location, interviews, B-roll footage, a voiceover, suitable music, all edited to produce a professional, high quality HD video showcasing your company. The crew will consist of 3 people, using minimally 2 cameras. We will work with you beforehand to create a storyboard and/or script.

Cost £2250

Web video

Jan21

Now that super-fast broadband speeds are the norm rather than the exception, it’s no longer an issue to have video on your website.

Not long ago, including a video on your homepage was not practical. This was for several reasons, like dial-up access made it impossible for your users to view video, and production costs made it out of reach for most people. Later, it became more affordable, and it become a good idea to include video on your website.

Now, it’s imperative.

If you don’t have a good quality, professionally produced video on your website, your site will look out of date, your search engine ranking will be lower, and you could lose sales. Video on your website will help to maximise your sales because video engages your customers in a way that no other medium can do.

You don’t necessarily need to appear in the video yourself; there are many options for you to successfully utilise video on your website.

Five Golden Rules about Web Video

  1. Don’t feature yourself unless you are naturally comfortable selling yourself and your company services
  2. Include customer testimonials. Your happy customers can speak volumes.
  3. Try to include “interview” style video. This is great if you are not comfortable talking to camera, just talk to someone else.
  4. Use video wisely – if you have lots of separate areas of your business, it can make more sense to categorise your videos
  5. Be careful with “auto-play” videos. Some potential customers find video which plays automatically very irritating, and can be put off straight away.

Video on your website will certainly increase interest in your products and services, and you might risk losing to your competition if you don’t take advantage now. Call Souithanpton-based Videomachine on 01256 835555 or drop us a line to find out just how affordable web video can be. We think you’ll be pleasantly surprised!
