Why choose Space City as your Video Production Company

Space City prides itself on supplying cost-effective top quality video production services. Much of our work is repeat business. This is because we work hard to make sure our clients are happy with what we deliver. Whether you need one video or an entire campaign, we have the expertise to get it done right. We’re not satisfied until our clients are happy and would be happy to recommend us to others.

What makes Space City different from other video production agencies?

Space City is specialises in TV commercials alongside other video content. We regularly use TV commercial directors and DOPs on social media videos, online content, interview videos etc. Involving someone with a TV commercial sensibility can really improve any project. Some jobs don’t necessarily require a TV equivalent crew, this is why we constantly tailor our productions to our client’s needs. We don’t work with egotistical crew, we’re only interested in friendly people who work hard and have the same ethos as us.

How long does it take to make A TV Advert?

Similar to naming a price, deciding how long a project will take to deliver is always based on the content involved. Space City can turn a simple one day live-action shoot and basic edit around in just a couple of weeks. We factor in progress and feedback during every stage of the production and post production edit. If you have a project in mind feel free to get in tough and we can give you a rough estimate of production timelines.

Can Space City write a creative script for me?

Of course, we have in-house copywriters and scriptwriters who specialise in copy for the screen. All of our scripts undergo a meticulous process before ever being seen by our clients eyes. We never suggest a script without running it past at least two producers who are Clearcast trained, to guarantee it’ll pass.

Being based in London, Manchester and Bristol, we can easily cater to clients a plane journey away but a little closer to home.

How do we work with clients?

At Space City we work in unison with our clients, this means that before we even meet to discuss your brief, we have researched your brand and attempted to understand your ethos and tone. Once we take your brief, we refine our findings to ensure your vision is seen through the creatives we pitch back to you.

We understand the importance of communication and collaboration throughout this, and the total video production process. We encourage our clients to be as involved or independent to the production as you would like. However we always recommend at least one representative of your brand to attend the shoot and edits, to ensure your vision is coming to life as you wish.

We always remain transparent with clients both in terms of costs and scheduling. During our pitch stage we present a bespoke deck which includes scripts, creative synopsises, storyboards, animatics, production costs and a schedule. All of our creative work is done free of charge so there’s nothing to lose by seeing us to pitch.

If you decide to work with us we then move full swing into production. Whether your campaign involves a live-action shoot, an animation or library footage, we take care all the editing and versioning work in-house to save time and costs. Finally, we implement a your transmission plan to make sure your campaign gets to where it needs to go.

We ensure we always stick to timelines and budgets. Schedules and costs will only ever change if our clients require significant changes to their production, or mother nature sends another global pandemic (or equivalent) our way.

What scale of companies does Space City work with?

At space City we work with all shapes and sizes of companies, including new to TV, challenger brands and household names. This gives us great experience, (over 30 years worth) of working with a range of companies with different objectives, some B2B, B2C, selling products, selling a service etc.

Whoever we are working with, our production team is always on hand to answer any questions throughout your production. A lot of our work is repeat business, which goes to show we’re pretty good at it too.

Is Space City expensive?

Space City are super cost effective for a number of reasons:

  • Our 30 years of experience means we have a meaty and loyal network of contacts, including directors, DOPs, casting agents, caterers etc. You name it, we have a contact for it, meaning you’re getting trustworthy, hardworking and cheaper labour.
  • Most of your production is done in-house, meaning we pass on those outsourcing cost savings back into your production
  • A lot of Space City’s work is repeat business, this means we save thousands on marketing and advertising for our company, meaning those cost savings go back into what really matters, ensuring our employees, equipment and knowledge are the best they can be for your production.
  • Because we are an independent brand with no parent company, communication between departments is quick and sign offs for projects are efficient. These quick turnarounds mean not running the risk of shelling out for late fees on things such as overtime, transmission, re-edits etc.

Who will I communicate with at Space city?

After meeting with our CEO Amii van Dunn to take your brief, we then decide which producer would be most suitable to your campaign depending on experience and the details of the project, i.e. comedic, animation, translated into various languages etc. Your producer with then be your point of contact throughout your entire production, they will communicate clearly at every stage of the project so everything runs smoothly.
