We recently approached Picture Book Films and asked them to produce the promotional and online video content for the 2015 Brighton Marathon.
We were impressed with how quickly they got to grips with our ethos and approach, and their working practices allowed us to create fresh ideas and input energy to the way we showcase our events.
The videos they produced exceeded all our expectations and generated excitement and anticipation when used as part of our promotional campaign - exactly the reaction we were hoping for! Our pre-event video, for example, was viewed over 22,000 times via Facebook.
We can't recommend Picture Book Films highly enough and are looking forward to building a strong relationship with them for the 2016 marathon and beyond!

We have recently worked with the Picture Book Films team on the development, production and completion of a new TV Advert that will be aired on terrestrial TV this year.
The challenge for us was how to have a really impactful TV commercial that needed to be innovative, inspiring and highly original – the Picture Book Films team have exceeded all our expectations. We have an excellent TV commercial and are simply delighted with the results, and this has been confirmed by our stakeholders.
I have worked with several TV production and blue chip agencies in the past, but Picture Book Films genuinely stands out by virtue of the attention to detail, quick response, and professional passion that they apply to their work. They are also a great team to work with and I have no reservations in recommending them to other clients.
Brian Schubert, Director of Marketing Communications
Working with the Picture Book team was a fantastic experience.
The whole process from start to finish was very slick and the team brought a lot of energy and enthusiasm.
The kit was of the highest quality and the locations were perfect. They even magically transformed a small bar into an Ibiza nightclub!
The final result is beautiful and has been a great success for our company.
The Picture Book team managed to create a video that appeals to customers, investors and the public alike.
Tom Carter, Chief Technical Officer
Picture Book Films did an excellent job and were great to work with.
They understood our needs and produced a video which conveyed our message effectively.
We were very impressed with the final film - it is exactly what we wanted and showcases our work brilliantly.
Catherine Johnson, Training Manager
Commissioning a video production was a new experience for Freedom Leisure and we were slightly apprehensive about the process and organisation involved.
Picture Book Films provided a thoroughly reassuring service from initial discussions, throughout the filming and proofing stage, to the editing and production of the end product.
From our initial briefing of campaign and brand values, they interpreted our ideas, wrote the script and captured the essence of Freedom Leisure perfectly. We are extremely happy with the end product and the ongoing support Picture Book Films are providing with regards to showcasing our video.
Liz Groome, Marketing Coordinator
We are thrilled with the wonderful film that Picturebook Films have produced about Ceres Power.
Everyone who has seen it has commented on how well crafted and engaging it is, which is a great testament to James and Claire's skill and experience.
Despite a tight deadline, they took the time to understand our business and produced an inspiring film that tells a high tech business story in a compelling way. They were a pleasure to work with, going above and beyond the call of duty to make sure that the final edit was just right.
Phil Caldwell, CEO
Working with Picture Book Films has been a pleasure.
We asked them to create a television advert for a national campaign and the project was handled in a very professional way from start to finish.
The resulting TV advert was one of a very high standard, and more importantly, very well received by the client.
Rick Bywater, Account Manager
We had previously tried a couple of different companies but just didn’t get the right feel from them. Luckily we came across Picture Book Films and arranged a meeting with them.
We knew as soon as we met the team that they were the right people to make our website video. They were prompt on the day of filming and handled the whole day in an efficient and professional manner.
Both Clare and James handled our celebrity perfectly and he couldn’t speak highly enough of them at the end of the day. We received our first draft of the video about 4 days after filming and it was great, really good music and editing, it was exactly what we had in mind from the beginning.
I can’t tell you enough how impressed we were with Picture Book Films and we look forward to using them again in the future.
Matt Pemberton, Marketing Director
I recently asked Picture Book Films to create an online video for my new website. I was absolutely thrilled with the results!
James at Picture Book Films listened clearly to my brief. As a Personal Stylist I wanted to create a story about how I work with my clients, my personality and my style. Through his expertise James met all my objectives and the final product exceeded my expectations.
The content and visuals were excellent, professional and look very slick.
I really enjoyed working with Picture Book Films and I would definitely use them again.
The team understood straight away what my showreel needed to convey. The result was smart, fresh, beautiful and powerful.
Feedback from everyone who has seen it is hugely positive and, as a result of the video, the phone hasn't stopped ringing.
I've worked with other production companies before and never been completely satisfied with the result. But Picture Book Films delivered more than I could have imagined was possible.
