Wiltshire film company launches discounted promo videos for SMEs

By Nick Batten on 19 October, 2018

Bower Films, a Wiltshire TV and corporate film production company, has introduced a new package aimed specifically at entrepreneurs and small businesses offering “high quality, professional video at a fraction of the price of a standard shoot.”

Ellie Edwards, creative director explained: “Small business owners often say that they love the idea of a promotional video, but they’re not currently in a position to make a significant investment. It can be a catch 22 situation as they need marketing to help them grow, but until they’re more established they don’t have a big budget to promote themselves.

“As a small business ourselves, we understand this and have come up with a solution that allows them to share the production cost with other local companies.”

The Monday Film Club will be running monthly from November and offers businesses the opportunity to book one hours filming at Bower Films’ offices near Chippenham. From this, the team edit together a promo film lasting up to three minutes – ideal for business people who want to introduce themselves and their services on their company website or social media.

Giles Edwards, technical director said: “This is a time effective solution for Bower Films as we’re not having to travel between locations, and we don’t have to spend time setting up lights and equipment each time. We’re then able to pass this cost saving onto other small businesses.”

Bower Films was founded by husband and wife team Ellie and Giles, who started their career in television and continue to work on various programmes including Countryfile and Bargain Hunt.

The filming sessions involve an “interview style chat” where Ellie asks questions in an informal manner.

She said: “There’s no scripts to learn and you don’t have to look at the camera. We find you get the very best out of people when they’re relaxed and enjoying the process.”

Sessions are available for an introductory price of £325 plus VAT. To find out more or book a space, please contact ellie@bowerfilms.co.uk
