Video Production and Photography
The big question...
Ready, set, go…
If you’re crowdfunding for your business, you’ll be in need of a pitch video for your campaign, and we would love to be your video production company of choice. The crowdfunding video is often the centrepiece of the campaign, whether it be for Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Crowdcube.
We’ve been privileged to be part of some wonderful campaigns over the years, and we’ve delivered videos designed to sell the service or product as well as the people behind it. Storytelling is so important, and people are buying into the full package rather than just your end result. It is fair to say that most of those 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 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.
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 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 video structure for each.
Our video production team will be able to focus on your story, your product/service and your campaign. Your video may actually resemble more of a product video, topped and tailed with extra messaging.
Your campaign is much more than just the video, however, and you’ll need to keep the energy up for the full campaign duration. We can also create a range of photography to help with 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 film 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 video production with coaching for the presentations to camera.
To support the campaign, we’ve been generating photography throughout, which helps to provide continuous content for use across social media.

“I have been working with Steven and the brilliant Pocket Creatives crew for 3 years – in fact since they started out. They have captured in excess of 100 recipes, produced 7 videos including 2 crowdfunding campaigns, their work, professionalism, and commitment to client satisfaction second to none. What’s more is how they have developed, evolved and grown in creativity, experience, and inspiration.
On a personal front the individuals in the team have to most wonderful personalities – an absolute joy to work with!”
Tanya Robertson-Lambert, Tanya’s JustReal
“Although our brief had a strict budget and tight deadline to adhere to, the Pocket Creatives team were incredibly flexible and produced a video of extremely high quality. Indeed, the video, which was for a Crowdcube crowdfunding campaign, helped us to over-fund in less than a week!”
Will Brightman, UpCircle
“I can’t begin to tell you how engaging and amazing a company promo video is. I was a little tired of repeating the same pitch today so I decided to play our new video instead. It was the best approach so far so If anyone is looking for a brand promo or crowdfunding vid, I highly recommend the team at Pocket Creatives.”
Tara Taylor, Good Grain Bakery
“Working with Pocket Creatives was a pleasure from start to finish. Steven handled our project with exceptional care and understood the intricacies of our brief. His team worked extremely collaboratively with ourselves and at no point did we feel misinformed. His approach is incredibly good value for money and the result was beyond my expectation. I will certainly work with Pocket Creative in the future.”
