We are a team of filmmakers, storytellers, animators and illustrators with a passion for video production and helping people connect. Good storytelling is what brought us together, and it’s always been the core of what we do. Every non-profit and charity has a story to tell, and everyone has a goal they’d like to achieve. Through video production, we help those two things come together. We create people-centric videos and animations that deliver important messages so that our clients can make things happen.More about us
Stories move people; it’s in our nature. Our minds actively seek them out and retain the messages contained within them. They help us form meaningful connections, relying on the power of human emotion to drive action. Video production and animation can give charities and non-profits in Portsmouth a unique opportunity to add richness and emotional detail to their story. With these at the heart of their storytelling, they can reach the people that matter most.
If you’re looking to create a video that really connects with people, then having a detailed and open briefing process is the best place to start. We ask questions, challenge you and learn as much as we can about you and your brief.
We love this part of the process. It’s the first opportunity in a project to think big and get creative. We take all of our thoughts and ideas about a project and combine them into an easy to understand document for you to mull over.
We’re planners by nature, which we use to our advantage when it comes to making a video. We don’t always strictly follow a concrete plan, but creating one in the first place means we can all be on the same page and pulling in the same creative direction.
This is what we live for; the part where we get to film, edit and animate your story. All of the thinking and planning culminates in the creation of videos and animations that you can be proud to share with your audience.
The project has come to an end, sign off has been given and we deliver your video or animation in an upload-friendly format. But your journey is just starting! Now you get to share the project with the people who matter most.
Simply put - they are the best supplier I have ever dealt with. Their professionalism, alongside their naturally infectious personalities made our projects run smoothly and in a really relaxed atmosphere. They really understood the brief too, went away and researched any gaps in their knowledge, and came back with a solution that fitted seamlessly into our branding and messaging. They were excellent with our students and staff - making them at home with a camera in their face is not an easy thing to do, but they work in such a way that everyone involved feels at ease.
I could not recommend Neck of the Woods Films enough! Craig, Tom and Emma are an exceptional team who have been a pleasure to work with. From start to finish they acted with an absolute, unrivalled passion to produce the best promotional film for us. Their professionalism and eye for detail have been second to none and we could not have been happier with the finished product.
We approached Neck of the Woods to produce a short animation for one of our programmes at Activity Alliance, and we couldn't be more thrilled with the end product. The team were very professional in all aspects of this project, from the communication, project planning to the creation of the animation itself. Throughout the project they were open to ideas and changes to make the animation more inclusive and accessible. Fantastic team to work with and they thought creatively to get the most out of the project.
We worked with Neck of the Woods to create a new, signature video for our charity and also social cuts from this. They were an absolute pleasure to work with from the very start and their professionalism and passion ensured that the end results were brilliant.
Working with Neck of the Woods Films is a delight. From the proposal and pre-production stage, all the way through to adding the final touches to the films, they are incredibly patient and ardent.
They passionately take on all elements of the project, engrossing themselves in the films and the work informing them. Neck of the Woods bring the perfect balance of experience, vision and trust of the client to deliver on projects that exceed our expectations.
