In the previous post, we looked at the clearance process and the timescales involved in TV advert production. This time, we’ll look at the creative styles which can be employed to produce an effective TV advert – and we’ll look at which styles suit which types of product/service, from both aesthetic and budgetary angles.

At YourFilm, we produce TV adverts for clients big and small, for local, regional and national campaigns. Whatever the client, whatever the product or service we’re helping to sell, the process is essentially the same, in part due to the fairly strict rules and regulations associated with TV advertising.
We often work with clients who are new to TV, and that coupled with the relative freedom which applies to online videos and even radio adverts means that we are often helping our clients understand the process and the regulations behind it – and how they differ to what they may be used to – whilst we work on the creative production of the advert.
So, we felt it might be helpful to publish a couple of blog posts which look at the processes and timescales involved, as well as the different types of creative styles we work in, as something of an ‘Introduction to TV advertising.’ Read more »

From humble beginnings in 2005, working in a home office with a £5000 start-up loan from the Prince’s Trust burning a hole in our pocket… We wanted to share a brief history of YourFilm. Read more »

One day back in early 2005, when Kevin and I were taking meetings with potential clients prior to launching ourselves into the world of corporate video production with YourFilm, we found ourselves being cut short by a marketing manager who said:
“Can I just ask – you’ve mentioned video a lot, but instead of a video, is it possible we could have the finished film on a DVD?”
It took me by surprise. Of course we were talking about DVD. VHS was long-since dead, and it simply never occurred to me that anyone would assume we’d deliver our corporate videos, on, well, VIDEO.
This meeting took place sometime around March 2005, and although we didn’t know it at the time, the world had changed roughly a month beforehand. Read more »

Hello. How has 2013 been for you? It’s been fun for us, with a great variety of projects to work on and some exciting new client names added to our roster. In short: we’ve been busy. So busy in fact, that we *almost* let the entire month of April go by without acknowledging that it marks the YourFilm 8th birthday.

It’s been a great year for YourFilm, we’ve worked with a host of new clients, delivered new projects for existing ones, seen our work on TV, had it exhibited around the world, filmed in the USA, won an award, moved offices, and added to the ranks (see October).
Here’s a whistle-stop tour of our year in video production…
JANUARY We shot a new campaign for Frank’s the Flooring Store, the first time since the brand launched that they’d done TV without the famous voice of Frank. They asked us to come up with something fresh, relevant and stylish. This is what we delivered.

When people find out what I do for a living, they often remark that it must be “really exciting!” Truth is, in my day to day role, the excitement usually comes from nailing a proposal and/or getting a green-light on a project, the type of excitement they are referring to is largely the domain of Kevin and the rest of our – excellent! – team.
Recently though, I got my day in the sun. Literally.
Our anti-piracy film for Save Our Seafarers has won us praise, some awards, and enquiries over the past year or so, but one of the most interesting developments came recently, when we were asked to film the onwater trials for a new anti-piracy system called WatchStander.

One of the most common questions we’re asked by new clients is “I’ve never made a film before, how does this work?”. We’ve developed & refined our working process over the years, and I thought it was worth sharing the YourFilm video production process- how we work, and why, right here in our blog.
