“Working with the STANDBY PRODUCTIONS team is always a pleasure. They took the time to listen and really understand what we were looking to achieve and understand the unique concept behind our school. Having worked with them before we had high expectations as the first promotional video they did for us was such an integral part of our marketing campaign last year, we wanted to achieve the same this year.

Chloe was great in chasing us for the key information for inclusion in our film and getting everything planned and organised before filming took place. Simon and Ash are really easy going and a pleasure to work with. They were great during filming and did an impressive job in post-production.

We needed to visit 3 of our employer partners sites and taking Simon and Ash along was great as they are consistently professional, as well as quick and efficient in setting the vast amounts of equipment as we moved from location to location. They were also fantastic at working with the employers we wanted to put in front of the camera, the interviewee’s were often nervous Simon and Ash worked together to help them relax and feel comfortable.

The end result of the guys hard work has provided us with another professional and effective promotional video to use in recruiting students to the Future Tech Studio. I have already recommended them to other studio schools who have seen our video and are looking to create something similar and will happily continue to do so.”

– Marketing Officer, Warrington Collegiate

“Simon was very professional. He was very inventive with his ideas and has a real eye for capturing visually creative shots. He really took our ideas and visions on board presenting them back in a way that would work whilst keeping the integrity of the initial idea. It is always a pleasure to work with people who are passionate about their craft and with Simon we got exactly that. It is obvious that Simon has a passion for digital media and film and this is evident in his work. He really added value to our campaign by introducing us to innovation in film production which lead us to create something very special indeed….well we think so anyway! We wouldn’t hesitate to work with Simon again and can’t recommend him enough.”

– Marketing Director, Beauty Bay

“Great team and fantastic service provided by Simon and STANDBY PRODUCTIONS. We are all pleased with how our case study has been visualised and how our story has come together. Apple’s comment was “Outstanding”. The video will be used for internal purposes at the next Apple AGM meeting with the UK Director of Apple really pleased with the outcome.”

– Head of Marketing, MCC Digital Group

“Working with STANDBY has been great. Friendly, creative, flexible. STANDBY understood our brief perfectly. STANDBY have been full of great ideas and captured some great footage. Perhaps too much good stuff to choose from!
We will definitely come back to you again for any future filming and most certainly recommend STANDBY to others.”

– Operations Manager, ESEM

“You’re in danger of being just too good!! Superb.
I couldn’t recommend your services highly enough. I’m delighted with how you have put our company across.”

– Managing Director, Solomon Commercials

“Access first used STANDBY PRODUCTIONS in 2012 and they immediately became a trusted, preferred partner. They understand how to work within the parameters of a client brief whilst at the same time producing beautiful films that always exceed both our and our clients’ expectations. Simon’s easy manner means that he always gets the best out of everyone on set and everyone in the team has always been a pleasure to work with. STANDBY always go the extra mile, as a perfectionist, Simon works tirelessly to ensure the final product is always as good as it can possibly be, regardless of budgets and timescales! We would have no hesitation in recommending Standby to any client or agency – they provide an approach to teamwork which can be rare in the film production industry and their levels of creativity and quality are second to none.”

– Account Director, Access Advertising

“I found STANDBY PRODUCTIONS a highly professional and dedicated company to work with. You constantly went the extra mile and nothing was too much trouble. We definitely look forward to working with you again.”

– Director, Forever Creative

“Working with STANDBY PRODUCTIONS was a real joy. Not only was the experience well organised, but the results far surpassed our expectations (not saying that we didn’t expect the work to be as good as it was) but it really was amazing! Scripting and coordinating very busy people is never easy, but the team at Standby did it. I’m looking forward to working with them again very soon.”

– Design Director, CCT Interiors

“We were really impressed with the overall experience with STANDBY PRODUCTIONS, we picked yourselves as we thought you best understood our brief and felt confident that you would bring our vision to life. The quality of the shots were excellent and it was edited swiftly and precisely allowing us to easily communicate all of the messages we wanted to get across in the style that portrays the fun working atmosphere and striking visuals of the wall art in our studios.”

– Director, Binary Box

“Having thought about commissioning a corporate video we decided to and the hunt began for a credible supplier. We eventually found STANDBY PRODUCTIONS and from the minute I spoke with Simon it was clear this was the company we would end up working with. Ultra Professional in their approach and fantastic show reel to back up what they do! STANDBY  demonstrated a methodical approach to how the film should look, feel and tell our story in a detailed yet interesting way given its only 2-3 minutes long. Couple that with the latest HD filming equipment and the result was outstanding in our opinion. I would have no hesitation in recommending STANDBY PRODUCTIONS to anyone I know, their approach and creative flare is second to none.”

– Sales Director, Steel Dynamics Limited

“We used STANDBY PRODUCTIONS to create a promotional film for our academy which we use on our website and to promote the academy to prospective parents and pupils. In a very short space of time and with little notice STANDBY created a fantastic film for us which really captured the essence of our school community, our facilities and our vision. I found them to be extremely professional and there work was of a very high quality. I would not hesitate to use their services again and I would recommend them to any potential customers in the future.”

– Principal, Beamont Collegiate Academy

“STANDBY filled us with confidence during our first meeting as we explained what we were looking for – a promotional video for a new concept school to the Warrington area. STANDBY quickly grasped the concept and what we were looking for. We initially met on a Thursday and then proceeded with filming on the following Tuesday! We were really impressed with how reactive the Standby team could be.

When it came to filming both Simon and Ashley were very professional, yet great fun to work with.
The final film really captured the message we wanted to deliver with our promotional video and was a fantastic balance of footage and computer graphics brought together in such a way that meant everyone is completely hooked for the full 3 minutes of the film.

I highly recommend STANDBY PRODUCTIONS and have already recommended them to others.”

– Marketing Co-ordinator, Warrington Collegiate

“We were absolutely delighted with the work done by STANDBY PRODUCTIONS. Simon Owen was fantastic to work with, stuck to the agreed milestone dates, accommodated our requests – but only when he knew they would work. He really worked hard to understand the message Cygnet Group wanted to communicate.”

– Managing Director, Cygnet Group

– Project Manager, Aldelia

“STANDBY PRODUCTIONS have astounded us with the final product – their professional yet personal approach gave us every confidence our videos would be a success. They are always on hand to offer advice and assistance on all aspects relating to the project and I would have absolutely no hesitations in recommending them to others.”

– Marketing Executive, Citygate Automotive

“Great videos by a great team. I can’t thank STANDBY PRODUCTIONS enough for their excellent work. Choosing them for our first foray into website product videos has been the best decision we’ve made this year. So much so that we have booked them for another shoot – can’t recommend them enough…”

The major part of the film also has caught the party atmosphere in the huge marquees and reflects the laughter and joy visitors experienced. I enjoyed working with you.”

– Michael O’Hare, PR and Advertising, Didsbury Beer Festival
