“Working with Forward was great, they were able to go through the options I had available and make important recommendations for what I could achieve with the resources and budget available. Collaboration was key to the success of our short films and I couldn’t be more happy with the final results.”
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.”
The team’s technical expertise and storytelling skill created cohesive narratives from some challenging material. The resultant films are well-crafted, beautifully shot and moving, perfectly realising our creative vision and delivering a product beyond our expectations.
“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.”
“Forward were brilliant to work for from our first meeting to the brilliant end product. Tom was really knowledgeable and took our vision into consideration and we couldn’t be happier with the short video that was produced. The whole crew were thoroughly professional throughout filming but also personable and really great to work with, really recommend them for any production!”
“I can highly recommend the guys at Forward as they are truly one of the best production companies I’ve worked with. The shoot was well-planned, professional and everyone involved had a great time on the day. As we were shooting a case study, I was particularly pleased at how well the team handled my needs as well as my client’s. To top it all off, they absolutely nailed the final product. The whole process was seamless, pleasant and professional. “
