We had the pleasure of working with the skills and education organisation, Go Train. They help give people the skills and knowledge to get jobs and build successful careers.
The videos were testimonial based, very simple in approach. We interviewed several learners from Go Train, separately, and then edited the footage into a series of video testimonials. As we’ve mentioned before on our blogs, each project must be looked at individually. Often a simple approach can deliver the message in the right way. We always look to make sure the aims and objectives of the video are met, which in this case were clear testimonials from Go Train users.
Testimonials are a great alternative to large-scale corporate video production (or alongside it, as we have done before with clients) and can offer the ability for fast turnaround.
In order to produce these films we met with our contact at Go Train, Rebecca, and discussed how the video production process would work. Rebecca then engaged with the various Go Train centres throughout Kent and got a shortlisted prepared of services users willing to talk about their experiences on camera. I then drew up a filming plan and schedule and discussed with Rebecca, keeping her updated on how it would work.
Filming went very smoothly with the key element being to help the interviewees feel comfortable on camera.
After production, we went through the editing process, which always allows for amends.
When finished Go Train was very happy with the final set of films – and hope to produce further testimonials to add to the video series in the future.
Below you can find a testimonial of our work by Rebecca.
“We used Wildwood Media to produce several short interviews of our learners, documenting their journey and success stories. Chris understood our brief from the very start and was in constant communication in the build-up to filming. On the day of filming, he made our very anxious learners (and myself!) feel at ease in front of the camera. We are so pleased with the results and will be definitely using Wildwood Media for future projects.”
