Testimonial Video Production in Bath, Bristol & the South West
Testimonial films, or case studies, provide transparency and authenticity to your audience. It’s an opportunity for a genuinely satisfied customer to reinforce your sales points and endorse your brand or organisation.
We weave a logical narrative within our testimonial films – taking the viewer on a journey by establishing the interviewee’s needs, how the client met them, what the working relationship was like, what the results were and above all, what values the client possesses that makes them unique.
For some customer interviewees, this will be the first time they have appeared on camera, and our empathetic and friendly team will prioritise relaxing them and helping them communicate effectively. We love eeking out genuine and powerful soundbites that help to bring the story to vibrant life.
How we create a Testimonial Video in 3 steps
We always take our time to understand the client’s business to help plan the shoot. As well as a well-composed interview, what else can we film on the day to make the film as visually engaging as possible and give the viewer a real sense of the client’s work?
Here it is a case of making the interviewees feel as relaxed as possible, as well as quickly getting to the heart of the story – illuminating why the business is unique and has gone the extra mile for the client.
Our editors always take time to cut out even the smallest ‘ums’, pauses or fluffs, and this attention to detail creates a much more persuasive presentation. Any edit points can easily be smoothed over with additional, relevant B roll shots of the clients’ premises or footage of them at work, creating a seamless, professional end result.

Frequently asked questions
How long does it take to create a Testimonial Video?
Testimonials can offer excellent value because it’s possible to film several in a day. Many of our clients invite several interviewees to one location on the same date, meaning we can typically film up to 12 individuals in a single filming day.
How much does a Testimonial Video cost?
A single, straight forward testimonial starts at £800. As the number of testimonials filmed in one location increases, the cost per film drops dramatically – please contact us for a bespoke quote, and we’ll be more than happy to offer advice.
What’s involved on the day of shooting a Testimonial Video?
When we first arrive our crew will want to check over potential filming areas to check for any sound issues (such as noisy air conditioning or humming fridges) and what additional lighting is needed to enhance the backdrop. Setting up the perfect interview shot can take as long as the interview itself, but you reap the rewards if you take your time here.
Most interviews take up to 45 minutes, depending on how confident the interviewee is. We don’t like to rush the contributors, as we find a relaxed atmosphere creates the most positive, engaging content.
We’ll also film appropriate ‘cutaways’ if we can – ideally ‘doing’ shots of the client at work, to help the viewer connect with the story.
Since we started using Octopus Films, we have not looked back. Their professionalism and ability to ease interviewees into the recordings have produced first-class content suitable for our selective audience of many of the FTSE 500.
