Why Video?

International brands dedicate big budgets to film because they know it is far more memorable than any other media.

But with a good creative concept, a well crafted script, professional directing and cost effective production, a powerful short film is surprisingly affordable.

Perhaps the most valuable quality your film can engender in your buyer is trust.
A website, however good, is no match for your customer meeting you and your staff.

But an excellent web film is truly the next best thing.

Flying Image works with you to create a short film which reaches out your customers on line – the one place you cannot be to make a personal welcome.

As we say in the showreel, you can’t shake hands with your customers on the web – but it is our mission to make them feel that they have.

The importance of web video in your marketing strategy

Our Approach

We thought about what you wanted from a Web Video company.

Most of all we reckoned you want a film that is really attention getting, looks professional and comes in on budget.

So we put together a creative team who know how to produce eye catching images and sounds at the right price.

You may already know what kind of film you want…
in which case we will listen, develop the ideas with you, and make it happen.

Or, you may prefer us to work with a blank sheet – in which case we discuss with you to identify the strengths and passion of your company.We will then weave these features to make a video which transmits the excellence of your products and services.

We are happy to do either!

But to make the most of your video it must talk to your customers in a way that they understand.

So some marketing knowledge about you is just as important.

We need to know something of your business, your products and services, as well as your customers.
Where do you position yourself in your market?
Where are you now – where do you want to be in five years?

If your web video company knows nothing about any of this how do they design a film to help you get there?

Property Videos

Why Video?

Video is a powerful marketing tool to generate valuable viewings which are more likely to turn into sales.

Evidence from UK and international markets shows that film stimulates interest from buyers like no other media – it brings the property to life in a way that photography can never do.

In the internet age an increasing majority of applicants like to see video – not just text alone.

Property video reduces time wasting viewings because potential buyers have a much better understanding of the true nature of the property.

Having seen the video they are far more likely to offer if they choose to view. This saves your staff time and effort, leaving you to concentrate on applicants who are far more likely to buy.


We will work with you to make your property videos look and feel a unified part of your overall marketing approach.

The directors of Flying Image are both former property professionals with many years experience of the requirements of your market.

There are a number of elements we can weave together to make your video. These include: -

  • Video with scripted commentary to impart information
  • A video walk through to show the ‘flow’ of the layout
  • Careful use of background music to improve continuity and unity
  • Quadcopter aerial video shots when required
  • Use of a professional on screen presenter in selected cases

We usually recommend a combination of well chosen commentary and background music that express the style and character of the property.

Please have a look at the examples which run on this page.

We will produce your video with the minimum of fuss and with a quick turn round so you can get your listing in front of your buyers promptly. We aim to have your video delivered to you within one week of instruction (subject to weather!).

Above all we remember that your potential buyer is not just buying a house – their aspiration is a home and a lifestyle in equal measure. It is our task to portray these elements in your property video.

Web Content

Creation and Design

Your web video will make a big difference to your internet presence and profile. But you may wish to go a step further and revisit the look and content of the rest of your website.

To increase the power and reach of your image with your customers it is a great advantage if your site and your film ‘speak with the same voice’ both in tone and style.

A flair for graphic design and a dedication to modern crisp clear styling is at the core of our web designers approach.

Our sites open quickly and are simple and intuitive to navigate – the information you customer wants must be at the front of the site – easy to access and to interact with if necessary.
