Video Production Solutions for the Media Sector

Video-based Product Reviews

Filming the Ferrari FF in Italy for a Media Product Review for a Sunday Times web video production Many products lend themselves to being reviewed on video. Traditionally, the video medium was restricted to television companies and broadcasters; with the advent of online video, the target audience has increased dramatically and this has enabled a new group of media companies to become online broadcasters. Many of these come from the traditional print media background, augmenting their paper content with rich, compelling content online.

We work closely with a number of companies, including The Sunday Times, to produce automotive reviews.

Music Video Production

Music Videos have become hugely popular with the explosion of online video providers such as YouTube. Most serious bands need some form of video to promote themselves to record companies and managers, as well as venue co-ordinators and booking agents.
Media Inventions provide a comprehensive video service ranging from filming a live gig using multiple cameras (see our shows and events section) to a complete dedicated music video shoot. We offer a selection of packages to suit most bands and budgets. For more info on live show filming see our shows and events section here.

Media Campaigns on Video

An on-set shot from the Autotrader Dont wreck the ride road safety campaign video production Video is a powerful medium to get a point across. Written testimonials become much more powerful if delivered on video by the writer. This benefit, combined with the ability to illustrate clearly, makes video a useful tool in any campaign. Media Inventions has been involved in various campaigns for major media organisations.
In the example below, TraderMedia group wanted to raise awareness of the high accident rate amongst younger drivers and used a series of online videos with well-known celebrities as well as those that had suffered in road accidents. These were delivered as a series of podcasts.

Video Features

Examples include motor racing events, news items, and show coverage. Video of these events offers compelling and surprisingly cost-effective content for websites. The video is often used to augment newspaper stories.

The example shown below is a feature that supported a print article in The Sunday Times on the efficiency of a new BMW 3-series. Fifth Gear presenter and Top Gear Magazine editor, Tom Ford was tasked with attempting to get 1,000 miles from a single tank of diesel. The extract below shows how he got on.
