Introduction to TV advertising – Part One: Clearance

Posted on August 3rd, 2016 by · Filed under Video Production articles

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 »

Time flies. Business is good, and we’re creating some great work. At YourFilm, we have a great team- and I mean a really great team. The team ethic, skill sets and drive to push ourselves forward mixed with the fact we have great fun in the office makes every working day enjoyable.

As part of our current growth we’re looking at adding to our team in the new year. In preparation we’re moving into a larger office space in the Northern Design Centre in December. Now this in it’s own right is exciting, however the extra space naturally got us thinking about how to improve and enrich our working environment. 

  • Something fun.
  • Something that would allow us a quick break. 
  • Something the team could enjoy together.

Our Top 5 Adobe After Effects scripts and plugins


Adobe After Effects is a great and very versatile piece of software. Its applications are huge, and for that reason there’s a huge amount of user generated code that’s been created in the form of scripts and plugins to increase efficiency, workflow or create automations. 

These are not included with the software out of the box and must be downloaded and installed separately (Prices range from free- expensive!) which is why we thought we’d share some of our favourites. Read more »
