Post Production

Post-production is where all the creative ideas come together — precision editing, well-chosen music, and engaging text and effects with clear calls to action will encourage potential customers to take the next step.

A well-crafted explainer video is a great way to communicate your service, product or idea in a streamlined and effective manner. Through careful structuring, scripting and editing, we’re able to break down concepts into understandable and easy to digest parts. In turn, this helps establish you as an expert in your field, and thereby builds audience trust and engagement.

Our experienced team can help you produce professional and innovative explainer films that make your brand stand out from the crowd.

Innovative and vibrant videos are a highly effective and flexible method to communicate your internal, B2B or consumer-driven messages. We’ll work closely with you to produce content which connects with your audience and moves the business forward.

Octopus Films can provide you with targeted promotional content, whether you’re looking for more sales, more clicks or more followers. Our team’s canny planning ensures footage can be re-versioned into many different uses, delivering real value to the client.

Video testimonials and case studies are a potent tool for connecting with potential customers. We can produce slick, persuasive and engaging content that adds authenticity to your brand.

A high-quality case study video is one of the most effective ways to influence the decision-making process of potential customers.

A genuinely satisfied customer talking enthusiastically about a product is a great way to reinforce your sales points and is far more convincing than any other medium.

We can provide you with a creatively produced testimonial film that adds credibility to your business as well as building trust with and attracting more sales from your audience.

Filming a live event is a hugely effective way of capitalising on its success, long after it’s over.

From conferences, workshops, exhibitions, product launches or team building days, we offer bespoke packages for events of all sizes in Bath, Bristol, and throughout the South West.

From affordable single camera shoots to large scale multi-camera live broadcasts, we can deliver a professional video solution that captures your event’s key moments.

We can also reversion the footage to create a high-quality promotional video or social media teaser to advertise the following year’s event, allowing you to maximise the content.

If you think TV commercials need huge budgets – think again – TV advertising has never been more affordable.

We’re always adaptable and work with businesses in any sector, crafting creative campaigns to suit your brand, budget and timeframe, that rewards you with a high return on investment.

Our expert team can produce high quality, effective TV commercials from just £5K, meaning we can help smaller businesses, organisations and charities get their message heard by the right audience.

Ellie. Creative Producer

We often work with people who are nervous about being filmed, but I’m happy to say just about everyone we’ve worked with has turned around at the end and said how much they enjoyed it! I love helping people relax and always strive to make a potentially nerve-racking situation as rewarding as possible.
