We don’t do dull, this isn’t off-the-peg stuff.
With video now the number one marketing tool, there’s a lot of video out there. At Canvas we make sure you get noticed. We don’t do dull, we don’t do off-the-peg videos or use a one-fit format. Our mission is to produce high-quality video content that is tailored to you, your brand, your values and audience. We use high impact visuals and refined story-telling to create original, engaging and effective content that delivers real results and makes you heard.
We love telling stories. We care about making a difference.
Formed in 2015, we are a studio of film-makers and animators with a broad background in TV, branded content and film-making with a passion for story-telling. We care about making story-led films that make a difference, films that move, entertain, inform and stay with you. This isn’t video making for the sake of making videos, it’s about high-impact content that creates a tangible difference.
Based in rural Hampshire in the historic City of Winchester, we work across the South and London, as well as nationally and internationally.
Each of our projects starts with a blank canvas.
As our name suggests, each project starts with a blank canvas. Everything we do is bespoke and focused on you and your outcomes. This isn’t off-the-shelf film-making, it’s tailored and shaped around you, your brand, your customer and your purpose. Your videos are your brand in motion, so it’s vital that they fully reflect who you are, your brand ethos and your brand identity through everything from the choice of music to the camera angles.
We believe success comes from thoughtful research, original thinking and a defined process to create video-content that works hard for you, that creates awareness and ultimately business growth. We understand that a video is only effective when it has a clear purpose and a clear return.
We also believe that a video shouldn’t just sit on your website, we believe in a fully integrated use of video, so we always offer the option of re-cutting your film for everything from email-marketing, YouTube pre-roll ads, Social Media to digital advertising screens to ensure you can fully reach your market in the most effective way.
The team really understand our business and what we were trying to achieve with our video content. Not only do they come up with different and creative solutions to our briefs, but the final videos produced are high quality and an asset to our communications, particularly in terms of engaging with our growing Facebook audience.
It was an absolute pleasure working with Canvas Films. Both James & Kate immediately understood what we wanted to achieve from our animation and managed to interpret our very vague ideas into something which successfully represents who we are as a company. Their enthusiasm and knowledge was indispensable in guiding us re content and visuals and in doing so they managed to make the creative process hugely enjoyable We are confident the video has helped raise market profile.
We chose Canvas because of their experience in making story-led videos in a busy hospital environment. Canvas understood our ambition to make films that genuinely involved our patients, holding a focus group so they could really understand patients’ issues and working with us to dramatically alter the focus and content of the films based on this.
The results were brilliant. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome of the videos, this one was very well received across the board. Canvas helped us to achieve our overall aim of educating Careers Adviser’s about the apprenticeship opportunities available to school leavers by connecting them directly to employers. We will look forward to working with Canvas again!
This was the first time we have used animation and it was really successful. The film gained a wide reach on social media, and has been used in presentations and at events with very positive feedback. It has been successful in making our campaign more active, engaging and fresh, and its longevity means we will continue to use it for the whole year ahead.
