After completing A-levels, Ed borrowed a DSLR camera off his uncle and started to create video content by learning off YouTube.
He started approaching local businesses, offering video content as a solution to promote their business’s – It was at this stage an ‘expensive’ hobby.
Working from his Bedroom, Ed started to find paying clients and was beginning to see the benefits video content had for businesses with the rapidly evolving social platforms becoming ever so important to a business’s success.
Armed with a DSLR camera and some basic sound and lighting equipment Ed went off to Vegas with The Beefy Boys to document them winning the word food championships.
With confidence behind the business we took out a Virgin StartUp loan. The loan was used to invest in the latest high-spec equipment.
Stuart (Dad) joined the team, bringing his business experience to the table.
We were made Virgin Startup Ambassadors. This gave us our first opportunity to film Sir Richard Branson at his home in Oxford.
Now with a strong understanding of the business model we started to establish ourselves, working with a variety of global brands to small, local independent businesses.
We finally moved out of the bedroom office into our first brick and mortar office and hired our first full-time editor.
We also became partners with crowdfunding platform Crowdcube and began working on a large number of crowdfunding videos throughout the UK.
The team grew from 3-4 as we continued to invest in new equipment, constantly improving the quality of the content we produced.
From here we started to work on bigger, more creative projects for new clients of all sizes.
The team grew to 5 and in need of more space, we move office again.
We converted a new 800 square-foot factory unit into an office and took over an additional 1600 square-foot unit, converting it into a fully functioning studio for video and photography content.
