Telling your story succinctly, enticing an audience to care (in a rather crowded market), all while seeking an actual response (like a sale) is tricky to achieve. That’s where we live. In a world where the play button is the most compelling call to action, and yet 5-second adverts come with skip buttons; purpose-led, captivating and emotive content is key to getting your message across. We can help. ​When it comes to creating visual content (*aka great video) we take a simple, yet effective, approach. ​Every frame, every second of content must count toward the end goal of bringing hearts and minds - and wallets, together.

Industry Experience

our roots Back in 2012 Managing Director, Joe Murdie was a talented photographer and he needed someone to make a video. He knew high-quality visual content was a key part of a standard marketing strategy. But the process was complicated, the price point too high, and the output underwhelming.

Seeing that video content was becoming a key part of standard marketing strategy, he set out to change that – and joined a new-era of agile, conscious business operators striving to create a different way of doing things in the video production industry. Passionate about video and a firm believer in its engagement power, Joe wanted more than just great video – so he developed a business model that partnered simple yet quality visual content creation with a strong strategic purpose at an affordable price to ensure the end products created by The Film Crew offered long-lasting value and achieved beyond its objectives. Joe has since then become an award-winning filmmaker and has grown the business to include a team of, not-just filmmakers, who all have the same vision for producing high-quality content. We provide full end to end service from concept development, planning, resourcing, staging, shooting, to editing and distribution strategy.
