“I have used Forward on more than one occasion, for producing educational and infomercial films. I can thoroughly recommend them for their astonishingly professional approach – they have a lens for every possible circumstance. If you are looking to give a certain Hollywood sparkle to your filming project, then look no further.”
We worked with Tom and his team on our educational videos and brought in outside experts to be filmed over the course of a few days filming. I can wholeheartedly state that the entire process was handled with a focused and clear, professional approach which has produced some fantastic results. We are very happy with the produced videos and the process of tendering, briefing, planning, shooting and editing was brilliant. We were internally looking to increase the quality of our produced video and set some fairly lofty heights of the styles and quality we were looking for. Overall we found Tom able to match those requirements really well and are very impressed with the end product. To top this process off we were filming during COVID restrictions and requested that Tom and his team follow as strict guidelines as possible to ensure all of our safety. Tom carried this out fantastically and ourselves and the experts (medical professionals) felt safe and secure. All in all I would highly recommend Tom and his team for filming projects.
We have had some wonderful feedback about our perinatal film, commenting on how touching it is and how cleverly it balanced the many areas that we wanted to get across in a brief film. Without the creative experience of Tom, I am sure we would not have achieved such a lovely film. The overwhelming reaction has been tears, which I think demonstrates how well the film ‘talks’ to people. Thank you so much for all you hard work and patience.
“We couldn’t be happier with the production process and the end product from Forward. Tom Martin, the Creative Director, worked closely with us from the initial concept discussions right through storyboarding, shooting and post production. He gave excellent creative suggestions while also listening to our priorities and aims. Attention to detail and quality were exemplary and yet it all came in on time and within the budget agreed at the outset. We’re delighted with the result and we’d jump at the chance to work with Forward again.”
Choosing a supplier to create video content that would represent the brand and bring our new ‘We Believe in Brave’ strapline to life, was an important decision. It wasn’t just a financial commitment, it was an emotional investment too, and no amount of interviewing and proposal-reading changed the fact that at some point, I just had to take a leap of faith.
But working with Forward has been a joy, beginning to end. The importance Tom puts on the collaborative scoping process during which he listens, inquires, and respectfully challenges, ensures the end result is exactly what you as the customer is looking for. On filming days his team worked efficiently, safely, and everyone was committed to striving for perfection (even when we’d run over time at the end of the day.) And the end result…. well, it’s wonderful; atmospheric, textured, well-paced, and better that I could have hoped. I wholeheartedly recommend Tom, and his team at Forward, and already look forward to the next project.”
“An elegant and beautifully shot film. It is personal and inspirational; well produced and entrancing to watch.”
