  • PROMOTION. We have helped dozens of organisations promote their product or service, utilising video to its full extent.

Corporate & Social Media

Corporate work

This can cover about half of what I do under the banner of ‘Ian Paine Creative’ from a simple talking head shot of a CEO to a full blown company profile with multiple shoots in various locations. 

Social Media

Needless to say that social media has changed the way that we watch video content. Keeping films short and adding text (the majority of these clips are watched without sound) has become the norm. But if you are contemplating hiring someone to film your content still bear in mind ‘what do I want the audience to know at the end of this clip’? You may get someone to watch your clip because it is funny or very visual, but then what? You need to convert this watch into something more. Hopefully that’s where I can bring in my skills as a story teller to transform that interest into a real contact.


Over the years I have worked with many organisations as a consultant, helping them get the best from their content, whether producing it for them or helping them by speccing kit and supplying training.

Green Screen Shooting

Sometimes you don’t always have the best location or background available. This is where shooting green screen comes into its own. I have a fully portable set up that can help clients to produce a strong visual brand.


I have delivered training sessions to a wide variety of client groups from Primary Schools to volunteer groups, helping them to get to grips with video/photo gear or get their ideas for a film down on paper in a script.

Photography Services

From headshots to documentary work, helping to capture just the right image for the client. Click here for more details.


I try to be as clear and transparent with pricing as possible, as ever it's always best to discuss a project beforehand to make sure that we can meet whatever the client's requirements are. So here's a couple of examples of pricing based on a simple shoot then edit structure.


Half a day shoot, followed by one day edit. Great for introduction films, perhaps MD delivering the ethos of the company, a chance to show your customers around your new premises. (Half Day shoot £250 and one day edit @ £450)



One day shoot with one day edit, a step up from the Basic Package, start telling your story using video, perhaps a piece to camera from your staff with some dynamic shots of your new product or service (£450 per day shoot, £450 edit)


Video Production

Full production service consultation, script, filming, editing, graphics and delivery to any platform. Example pricing based on one day filming followed by a two day edit (1 day shoot @ £450 per day 2 days edit @ £450 per day)
