Pension Transfers Video

Kevin O’Neill, Director of O’Neill Financial Services, wanted a short financial video to explain his pension transfer services to his clients. CreativeAdviser was happy to oblige, developing a concise explainer video to convey the firm’s services in an attractive, digestible format.

Using a powerful set of animations and soothing music, the user is carried through the video’s message in a comfortable way which puts them at ease. The result is greater clarity, trust and peace of mind, encouraging the potential client to enquire via the web form or by picking up the phone to an adviser.

Promotional Video

Bure Valley group is an investment management firm, working primarily in the field of EIS and SEIS. Their aim is to join sophisticated investors with innovative UK startups, especially in the tech sector.

Impact Investment Video

Worthstone were still in the early stages of starting up when they came to CreativeAdviser. They needed a high impact way of communicating a relatively complex, new area of investing (at the time) in the simplest way possible.

We created a very simple, cost-effective video to promote the work of Worthstone, who help to bring social impact investment to maturity among Independent Financial Advisers. The video consists of a blend of “talking head interview” and simple graphics to communicate the story effectively. Original music was then overlaid to create an engaging piece of communication.

Promotional Video

PerformIT, an IT services company which provides IT Support & Forensic eDiscovery services, approached us with a project brief to help them communicate the brand’s offering to a more specific target audience.

After storyboarding and scripting, we created original music and graphics after filming a series of interviews. This created a compelling and concise piece of film. Client testimonials were also used throughout the video to establish PerformIT as a credible, trustworthy choice.

Frequently asked questions

How much does your financial video production cost?

Let’s tackle the most common question head on! Costs for our financial video production service are influenced by a number of factors. An important consideration is the type of video you need. If you require a purely animated video then the costs are lower than a project requiring on-location shooting, a camera crew and complex editing. Animated videos start from £850 per video. For the latter project type, you are usually looking at an investment of £3000+.

How important are videos to financial firms?

Consumers are increasingly going online to educate themselves about brands prior to making purchases. The content they consume, moreover, quite often is video in nature. This is no less true in the world of financial services. Bluntly put, financial firms which neglect motion picture risk getting left behind. Indeed, it is estimated that up to 82% of web content will be video by 2021. Make sure you are speaking the language which everyone is set to speak!

What audio and/or voiceover services do you provide?

For some financial firms (e.g. large corporates) a voiceover can make a video appear and sound more professional. If you want voices, however, we tend to recommend involving those of your staff, directors, clients and stakeholders to provide an air of authenticity. Regardless of the type of audio included, the sound production will be edited to a high standard to ensure clarity and quality. We can also include background music where appropriate, as well.

What can I practically do with a financial video?

Videos are hugely versatile and powerful brand assets for any financial services business. Our clients use them, for instance, during client on-boarding meetings or during pension seminars. Others upload them to digital platforms to use in marketing campaigns, such as Facebook Ads or Youtube Ads. Educational videos can be a powerful resource on a services page of your website, moreover, to clearly and concisely explain a key aspect of your value proposition.

What type of file/format do your financial videos use?

All of our financial services videos are supplied in the industry-standard formats, such as .mp4 and .mov. This allows you to integrate and embed your video easily onto a wide range of media and platforms including YouTube, Vimeo and WordPress websites – viewable on mobile, tablet and desktop devices. If you require your video in a different file format, however, then please do let us know and we will provide it for you at no additional cost.

How do graphics and branding work with your video projects?

If your financial video requires bespoke graphics, then our digital design team can certainly provide these elements for you. This process might include a logo animation, for instance, or a set of transitioning infographics. If you have brand assets you need to include in the final video file (e.g. brand colours, styles and straplines) then we can also integrate these naturally.

What sort of timescales are involved in financial video production?

The answer to this question depends on the type of video you need, as well as how many you require. For instance, a purely animated “explainer” video usually takes less than a month to produce, edit and publish. A series of videos involving camera crew, multiple site visits, graphical effects and a significant editing and production period can span over 2-3 months. Please let us know ahead of time in your project brief what you need, and we can specify.

How does the video production process work?

Assuming our proposal and quote are accepted, all of our videos start with a discussion with you about the main video message, audience and purpose. From there, the storyboard and script are put together and sent to you for review. Once signed off, we proceed to the production stage which involves the physical filming, recording and graphic design work for the video. After this, we edit the file to optimise the audio and visuals before presenting it to you.
