I’ve known Dave Harries and his team at Communicate TV for some time and we’ve been filming regularly with them for several years. Their skill in harnessing the power of the professional broadcast interview is key to the effectiveness of their films and I would recommend them to any organisation that wants to communicate regularly and effectively with their stakeholders.
Grant Leboff, Managing Director
The NHS Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Screening Programme has used the services of Communicate TV for a couple of film projects involving clinical staff and patients. They provided a thoroughly professional and flexible service. They understood our requirements, adapted readily when plans needed to change and were easy to work with during both the filming and editing phases. We were very happy with the final results.
Mike Harris, Communications Lead, NHS Adult Screening Programmes
CommunicateTV were professional, patient and quick to understand the requirements of what we were trying to achieve. The filming was done in a relaxed but professional manner and I did not feel as if I was being put under any pressure, with any mistakes made along the way soon rectified with retakes. I would have no hesitation in recommending CommunicateTV.
Kay Watson ESVPS Company Director
Dave and his team put us at our ease from the outset with their relaxed but professional attitude as well as their excellent sense of humour which really helped us with our nerves. The process was seamless after we had got the ‘set’ right and despite initially having been aware of the cameras they were forgotten as soon as Dave asked the first question. The end product is excellent and we are using the videos on the homepage of our website. We would strongly recommend CommunicateTV
Hilly Barker, Managing Director
Filming took place on site with all the complications that location filming can afford – noise from trucks, weather – including a strong wind playing havoc with the microphones, time restraints due to daylight hours and not least, mud! Dave Harries executed the interview with practised professionalism and an understanding of the product he was dealing with. CommunicateTV understood and interpreted the brief exactly. They worked around us and delivered the finished product on schedule and within budget. Their team is archly professional, with consummate attention to the minutest detail. With the many very favourable comments from new and existing customers, I could not recommend them highly enough.
Fiona Benbow, Marketing Manager
Dave and his team offer a great service that we have no hesitation in recommending. Right from the off they responded quickly and professionally to our need for a fast turnaround. We felt they had a firm understanding of our business and the message that we wanted to get across via the videos. This allowed the interviews to flow and for us to get the best possible end result.
Hana York, Marketing Manager
The CommunicateTV team made us feel comfortable and at home as soon as we walked in to the studio envirnoment. We were all a little nervous of the lights and cameras beforehand but once in the hands of an extremely capable professional interviewer we all relaxed and started to enjoy the experience. To us, this is a great form of video communication and we shall certainly be using CommunicateTV again.
Matt Wheeler, Marketing Director
We have worked with CommunicateTV to create independent TV style interviews to convey our company principles and also a walk-through tour of our UK operation. The videos provide a useful insight into our business & convey honest opinions and views of our company by members of staff at all levels. We’re now looking forward to working with Dave and the team on a series of video sessions and new themes.
Paul Spencer, Head of Marketing
Our own requirements were for a Newsnight-style, interviewer/interviewee format involving the Fits.me CEO. Dave made an assured host; he absolutely looks the part and possesses the gravitas required to make the format work. Notably and evidently, he had taken the time to understand our business and products; this made it possible for him to react to answers and ask meaningful follow-up questions in real-time, ensuring a natural conversation and avoiding the pitfalls of over-rehearsal. Following the filming activity itself, Dave and his team turned the initial edits around very quickly; our comments were incorporated equally quickly, and final versions were delivered ahead of schedule. The real question is: did the videos work with their intended audience? Did they look right, such that they were attractive to view? Yes they did. Some of that is down to good planning, but the remainder is down to great-looking videos. So can I recommend CommunicateTV to meet your own corporate video requirements? Yes I can.
