Ready, set, go…
If you’re crowdfunding for your business, you’ll be in need of a crowdfunding video for your campaign, and we would love to be your crowdfunding video production company of choice. The crowdfunding video production is often the centrepiece of the campaign, whether it be for Kickstarter, Indiegogo, Seedrs or Crowdcube.
We’ve been privileged to be part of some wonderful campaigns over the years, and we’ve delivered crowdfunding video productions designed to sell services and products as well as the inspirational people behind them.
Storytelling is so important, and potential investors are buying into the full package rather than just your end result. It’s fair to say that most of you who appear in front of our cameras are not always the most comfortable – after all, you’re business owners not TV presenters! We do all we can to put you at ease and make that part of the project more bearable.
The start of our crowdfunding video production process is to understand as much about your business as possible, and we’ll share a short questionnaire with you so that we can get up to speed with your market and your place within it. We also like to understand the features of your business and your USPs, all of which help us build a better crowdfunding video production.
From here, we’ll work with you to generate some ideas and try to find a good budget fit. As with all of our projects, our charges for crowdfunding video production projects are based entirely on time – which helps us to scale how we charge.
What we can do
There’s a subtle difference in approach depending on whether you’re looking for equity-based investment or are going for a rewards-based platform, and we can help advise on the most suitable structure for your crowdfunding video production to best suit each.
Our video production team will focus on your story, your product/service and are mindful of your campaign. Your crowdfunding video production may actually resemble more of a product video, topped and tailed with extra messaging to tailor it to an investor audience.
Your campaign is much more than just a crowdfunding video production however, and you’ll need to keep the energy up for the duration of the full campaign. We can also create a range of photography and other visual content to maximise that social media buzz, hero images for the web and for newsletter releases to help you stay the course.
Who we’ve worked with
We love getting on board with new businesses, and had the pleasure of working with Cauli Rice, Saucy Affair (now Tanya’s Just Real), Optiat (now UpCirlce) amongst others. Perhaps our most memorable was a fun-filled trip to the Canary Islands to create a crowdfunding video production for Moreno Coffee.
A great example
The work that we’ve done with Tanya’s Just Real is probably our longest serving relationship at Pocket Creatives. We’ve been involved at each step of their campaigns as their business has grown and developed, producing everything from very simple videography to cover events and product tastings, to full crowdfunding video production with coaching for the presentations to camera.
We’ve tried to make the commissioning process for crowdfunding video production services as easy and digestible as possible. We’ll discuss your brief in detail prior to filming which will allow us to understand the full scope of what you’re trying to achieve. We can either quote from the ground-up or work to a pre-set budget – we know everyone will have different spending requirements and limitations, and we do our best to accommodate that budget when providing crowdfunding video production services.
Once we know what we need to deliver, we’ll finalise the creative approach with you, organise the dates and capture your footage. The edit process almost always takes longer than production, so we’ll allow for multiple days of work to include time for review and changes. We’ll deliver digital online viewing copies in the run-up to sign-off, but you’re also welcome to join us if you’d rather edit in person.
The beauty of working with video is the options available, and we can usually scale the crowdfunding video production services we provide up or down to find the best quality and budget fit.
For techy readers, we shoot using the latest Panasonic cameras, from the new S1H series. They use some of the latest imaging technology, meaning that they produce exceptional images and respond better than most in challenging lighting conditions. This forms the centrepiece of our video production services, and will allow us up to 6K in resolution and higher quality slow motion.
We complement the cameras with our range of fast lenses to make the best of the full frame sensor. We have super sharp primes, flexible zooms and macro abilities for high quality at all focal lengths.
In addition, we have upgraded clients to work with RED, Blackmagic, Canon C Series and Kinefinity Mavo cameras where we have needed to provide bespoke solutions. These have enabled capture up to 6K with greater detail and higher impact slow motion capabilities.
As standard, we come with sound and lighting, and a number of creative options such as slider movements, gimbals, GoPros and more can be added on.
We have the vast majority of what we need to provide quality crowdfunding video production services in house, right from pre-production, planning, scripting, talent and location sourcing – through to production, edit, QC and delivery.
Our studio space in London Waterloo gives us a great base to handle all kinds of video production in-house too.
We use strategic partners to support us, from talent directories, to specialist equipment hire, studios and more.
You’ll also find some of our recommended suppliers here who provide everything from agency services to digital, design and web services.

What They Say
“Fun, innovative and unflappable. Pocket creatives are great to work with – whether it’s finding the perfect lighting for a trifle to capturing GoPro footage on a whisk, they always approach every situation with a steady yet game-changing attitude. I see the whole team as trusted creative partners to make great content together.”
Kitty Aldis, River Group
“Pocket’s ability, professionalism and attention to detail have proved exemplary across the pre-production, capture, post-production and delivery of both photography and video projects they have completed for Book People. They are always on hand to offer advice and to help sculpt the narrative of projects; and the creative process when working with them is wholly collaborative, which provides a perfect balance of fulfilling the needs of our brief and allowing Steven and the team to use their expertise to create a quality visual product.”
Tom Rosier, The Book People
“The guys at Pocket Creatives were super knowledgeable and helpful – I definitely felt as though our video project was in safe hands! They were flexible and adaptable to what we needed and the content they produced for us was fantastic!”
Alice Morgan, The Telegraph
“The Pocket team were a pleasure to work with, not only were they super prepared, on time and professional but the quality of work they delivered in a short space of time was fab. I would recommend Pocket Creatives, we couldn’t have asked for a better experience and are thrilled with our short video.”
