Video production advice, school video production advice


We have a wealth of experience working in the education sector, having produced hundreds of school videos. We appreciate that commissioning a school video can be a daunting task. We are here to help, so don’t be scared to ask for our video production advice. For us to understand your requirements we need to ask a few questions.

  • What is the aim of the video?
  • Who is your target audience? Students, parents or teachers?

  • What is the message you want to convey? What you want to say and to whom will form the basis of your script.
  • Where will the film be shown? Website, social media or in reception.

  • What is your timescale? When will the film need to be delivered by?
  • Do you have additional requirements such as drones or animation?

  • Budget? It’s good to have an idea of what you want to spend.
  • How do you want the video to look? This is called the “treatment”. If you have seen something that you like, share it with us.
  • Do you want a Voiceover/narrator?
  • Filming? Check availability of staff, locations and resources?

Initially we suggest you book an online chat so we can gain an understanding of your requirements. Our video production advice is completely free and it’s a great way for us appreciate what you are trying to achieve. This chat enables your team to ask any questions you may have and we will offer all the video production advice we can to help you achieve what you need.

We would like to know about the challenges you face and understand your vision for your school. We listen to your objectives and then create a concept and strategy that will not only achieve them, but ensure you get the maximum benefit from your video and your budget. Working in partnership, we aim to realise that vision with exceptional creativity.

During pre-production we take the time to get to know your school, we listen to your ideas and take on board the ethos and culture, incorporating these factors into the finished film.

We will respond to your brief with a proposal that includes the process and costs involved. The cost of your school video production depends on the complexity of your brief. We may also suggest a treatment, the “look and feel” of the film. If you are not sure, maybe you have seen a video that you like the look of? Share a link and we can go from there!
