Why Use Video?
Video has become the human’s preferred mode of processing information these days, and has now become one of the most powerful marketing and storytelling tools. Below we answer the question “why?”…
Why Use Video For Business?
If you’re offering a service or product video is an opportunity to show customers what you have to offer and stand out from the crowd. Potential customers can be welcomed ‘behind the front door’ and experience the quality of your work, your staff and the array of goods you have to offer… all from their armchair.
We aim to create marketing and corporate videos that are informative, creative, persuasive, inspiring, engaging. A great benefit for you is that producing this powerful content that can be employed on websites, through social media, and even in the cinema or on TV is now more cost effective than ever before.
Cinema has told stories and engaged viewers for a century and the best films capture ‘tone’ and ‘story’ and mix it with great scripts and engaging visuals. Whether your business is a service or a product, your loyal and potential customers want to know who you are and why you do what you do. If they are eating at a restaurant, they want to know that you care about their food. If you are an estate agent, selling their house, they want to know that you will sell it well.
There are further benefits to be had with film and video for increasing your visibility online and improving your SEO. Companies spend lots of money on improving rankings for Google (the biggest search engine on the planet) but how much time and effort has your business put into the 2nd biggest search engine, YouTube?

Why Should The Individual Use Video?
Maybe you’re fundraising, looking for crowdfunding, founding a kickstarter project or maybe you’re a singer, actor or musician needing a quality showreel… Whatever you’re doing, video can really help you raise your profile and tell your story.
We were delighted to have helped Russell Baylis to let people know about his endeavour to compete in a Kayak Marathon and raise money through sponsorship for an orphanage in Zimbabwe who had no access to clean running water. Russ hoped to raise somewhere around £2,000 for the Harvest Family Village but after the film was made, shared online and used as a counterpoint for appeals in person, Russ raised £7,000 to drill several bore holes, install pumps and piping and bring life-giving water to children that really needed it.

Why Use Video For Organisations?
Films and videos have the power to educate, enthuse and gather people behind a cause. Sometimes it’s about telling stories that resonate, real people sharing about real events, and other times it can be as simple as capturing and showing footage that demonstrates the heart and message in a nutshell. Whatever your organisation does, video can be the key to communicate the goals, values and truths central to the cause.
This can lead to fruitful outcomes in bringing like-minded people together, raising finances or reaching out to the very cause that your organisation exists for. If you need it, Fatcalf can help to distill the core message of what your organisation does and how that can be portrayed.
A few years ago the many Plymouth city centre coffee shops / cafe’s / restaurants were exasperated at the problems they were having with seagulls. Seagulls were, reportedly, becoming a real danger to customers, their staff, public walking by and to the businesses themselves. Plymouth City Council were petitioned after the local businesses had poured thousands of pounds into trying to ward off the birds and protect their livelihoods to no avail. We were commissioned by the organisation to gather evidence of the problems, document it and provide a way to present it to the City Council. After a few hours filming of seagulls dive-bombing many different people in lots of locations, Plymouth City Council agreed to spend up to £250,000 to change the city centre roofs and encourage the seagulls to nest and congregate elsewhere. It really is amazing what video can do…
