Matt Wain - Corporate Photography and Video
In the 20 years I’ve been shooting, I’ve made Paul Daniels disappear, been trapped in car in Iceland,
streamed 4G video a mile underground in the Arctic Circle, photographed a guy called Danny who survived the
7/7 bombings (truly humbled by his forgiveness), I’ve scrambled up water towers, dangled out of helicopters,
met some really great people and shot some amazing stuff.
In my career I've shot for everything from fashion to food - you name it, I’ve probably shot it! I now concentrate on producing creative content for business and industry in the corporate and editorial sectors. My passion is meeting real people in business and helping them tell their stories.
Work takes us all over the UK and Europe shooting within many business environments. We’re as happy in a cow
shed as a corporate boardroom and always approach jobs in a relaxed, but professional way.

About Video Production.
This year video will account for 69% of all consumer internet traffic. You Tube alone receives more than one billion unique visitors every month. When it comes to potential reach video is hard to beat. Producing a video
that engages your customers means they will spend more time interacting with your brand.
We want to learn what’s important to your customers, get to know you and what
you need to say. This helps us picture the best way to tell your story.
We can help with every aspect of the shoot, from initial concept development,
to scriptwriting or Q and A and all the way to subtitling.
Video brief and key messaging
You know understanding your audience and defining the purpose of the video you want to create is key. With ever decreasing attention spans, the length of your video is determined by your audience. We recommend most videos should
be kept to under three minutes, however more detailed explainer videos can justify longer run time. We'll work with you to keep focused on what the video needs to communicate and consider what is relevant to your audience at all times.
We love pre-production, it’s where the shoot starts to come together. The more effort put in here the better
the end result. We can help work out timings for the shoot – consider interviewees' availability, location availability,
noise levels, light levels and all the things that will add up to a video that looks great and delivers the
right message to your audience.
Before the shoot, we can help you with messaging, scriptwriting and Q&As for interviewees - so they can be relaxed on the day, ready to deliver the message.
If your video requires a voiceover, who will it be and what do they need to sound like.
This could be someone within your company or we can help find a professional voiceover artist.
The fun bit…Lights camera action…Need we say more.
Once the story has been signed off - any pick up shots, effects,
music, text can be added. We can source and direct CG artists and voiceover artists as needed. And we can help with translations and subtitling too.We can deliver the video in any format you choose.
Then when the complete video is approved, then we can render it to the required formats,
optimize it for the relevant host and translate / subtitle it if needed.
This is where your idea becomes the slick, professional and targeted video you envisaged
in your initial brief. A video that makes you look good.
