Help us help
BOURNEMOUTH | POOLE | CHRISTCHURCH
We are looking for 35 local businesses to receive a FREE professional video
WORTH OVER £800 to help them bounce back after the Covid-19 pandemic.
Thanks to the fantastic BCP Business Support Package, we are offering our professional video creation services to local businesses. The packages will help support businesses by raising their profile and promoting their services, enabling them to bounce back stronger.
We ourselves have seen how difficult lockdowns have been on businesses; while the TV and Film side of our business has remained buoyant across the pandemic, our corporate clients have been hit hard and investments in activities such as video creation, promotion and marketing have had to take a back seat. This has then had a knock on effect. This initiative allows us to help businesses come back fighting and promote the great things they are doing, in the part of the world we love so much.
Call for businesses
So, we are excited to invite business owners, customers, friends and family to nominate local businesses in the BCP area who would benefit from a promotional video, shot by our expert team used to working with some of the biggest names in film and TV.
We will be filming for 2 days in Christchurch/Southbourne, 2 days in Bournemouth and 2 days in Poole, with a further day at Branded Studios in Saxon Square, Christchurch, for business without a fixed location. We will then use our in house post production suites and expert editors to create beautiful short videos of around a minute in length for the businesses taking part. These are perfect as adverts, social clips and corporate websites.
Charlotte Fantelli, Owner of Branded Studios said: “We’re delighted that BCP have chosen us to help deliver the Council’s plans to drive growth across the region and help local businesses bounce back.”
“This has been a devastating time for many businesses, lockdowns have piled on the pressure and that’s why initiatives such as this from BCP are so important. With the Business Support Grant we have received, we are able to offer our services to local businesses who ordinarily would not be able to promote their business in this way.”
This will ensure the continued vitality of the local business community and support BCP Council in its ambitions to promote a thriving and creative hub in which to live and work.
Councillor Philip Broadhead, Deputy Leader and Portfolio Holder for Economy at BCP Council,
said: “Following a competitive application process, we are pleased to award this grant to Branded Studios. This project is just one of many innovative initiatives that our latest package of discretionary business support will now bring to life. It will contribute towards Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole’s reputation as a place where businesses can continue to flourish and grow.’’
The videos will include shots of the business (at one local location) where applicable, an interview with the owner or nominated member of staff, an animated logo reveal and call to action with graphic end plate and accreditation plate.
We will be working with local business hubs, BIDs and communities to find businesses who will benefit from our services, but we are also delighted to hear from anyone who would like to nominate their own, or another deserving local business.
Closing date for nominations 27th June 2021.
If the business you nominate is successful, Branded Studios will contact them directly after the closing date.
