Behind the Scenes

Our ‘Behind the Scenes’ videos give viewers a peek behind the curtain of our creative events. Containing behind the scenes interviews and showcasing the interaction between artists and the products and devices of our sponsors and partners;these videos are hugely popular with our audience, as well as generating a lot of interest when shared via social media.

Video profiles

Video profiles are short videos following a different artist each time and show that artist in their home or workspace;allowing viewers to find out a little about each artist in a personal light. Viewers will also get to see some of the tools, methods and equipment each artist uses and so these act as a great promotional opportunity for our sponsors.

Corporate videos are an ideal way to promote a product or service, improve sales and grow a loyal customer base. Each of our corporate videos is custom built to the clients’ specifications and goals. We follow our production schedule to ensure that a company is always up to date and involved in the creation of their video.
