Breakthrough exports central to growth for Nottingham video production business

Recent contract wins from overseas clients have underpinned growth for Nottingham based video production company Page One Media, which saw a 30% growth in sales for Q1 2017-18 over Q1 2016-17.

Projects for Singapore FinTech firm Smartkarma (dubbed the ‘Spotify of Asian investment research’ by Bloomberg) and U.S. rail engineering company Harsco Rail, both embraced Page One’s Agile Production System. 

“Our Agile system has helped a number of UK firms to realise a quantity and quality of videos above what more traditional methods would have produced, and this is now being picked up by businesses further afield.” explained Doug Marke, Creative Director at Page One.

Page One’s production process was endorsed by Jon Foster, Co-founder & Chairman of Smartkarma, "We recognise the huge value of delivering our key messages and product benefits via video content, and Page One Media made the whole creation process streamlined, with a great final result."

Whilst SmartKarma’s project was a series of animations to be used across their website, Harsco’s project involved producing a video to demonstrate their rail maintenance equipment in use on the East Coast mainline.

Doug said, “You do a lot of planning when working on engineering projects, which often go out the window at the last second when working on a live site. Half way through this three-day shoot, we needed to make major changes due to operational changes on site. Our Agile approach allowed us to embrace this with no cost or time implications for the customer, whilst still producing a great video.”

Page One produce videos using a unique production methodology that leverages new technology and agile methodology to make the process of producing videos as easy and rapid as possible for clients.

“Instead of forcing customers into a set production system, our approach is driven by the customers’ actual needs, combined with leveraging new video production technologies.” said Doug.  

The company, which has enjoyed 21 years in business, is actively recruiting on the back of this growth, as well as rolling out new production technologies.

“Political developments are undoubtedly effecting the creative market, but we have a good product and a strong portfolio of clients, so we are continuing growing our capabilities in our team and through ongoing investment in new technology.” commented Doug.
