Welcome to Barford
Barford has over twenty years' experience making award-winning films for business, the public sector and NGOs.
Whether it’s videos for internal use or external facing webfilms, we provide a cost-effective,
pragmatic and creative approach.
Areas of expertise include training, communications, product and services promotion,
best practice and client testimonials.
Barford has also filmed at hundreds of conferences, exhibitions and away-days to produce captivating highlights films,
to ensure the investment in these occasions lives on far beyond the event itself.
Almost anyone can make videos these days just by picking up a smart phone - but getting them to really work
for you and your company takes skill, experience, imagination and a dedicated team of specialists -
all of which we have in abundance!
We will deliver forthright advice and ballpark budgets for any potential video production within hours of asking.
We believe that if a film is fun to make, it is fun to watch.
To produce corporate videos and webfilms that meet our client's needs, not ours!
To be cost-effective - as a small business we have small overheads - a benefit that we can pass on directly to our clients.
To recognise the communications power of employees, both senior and junior, to be spokespeople for your organisation - and we are expert at getting the best out of them.
To deliver creative continuity - we have an in-house director who is involved from initial briefing through to
final delivery of the production.
To allow you as a client to be as involved in the process as you wish - from totally hands-on to very hands-off -
we are more than happy to manage all stages of the production process.
To be efficient and low key - we are experienced at filming in busy and often sensitive environments -
and always minimise disruption.
To be engaging - with clients, crews and contributors – to get the best out of everyone!
People prefer to watch than read!
A video contains an approved, consistent and fresh message every time it is watched.
Video allows corporate exec’s time to work harder - so they can still be visible to their colleagues,
new recruits and clients - whenever and wherever.
Video can provide a privileged insight into a business without the cost, disruption and management of a real-time visit.
Video production can be more cost effective than you think - our prices begin at the £2k mark.

He has travelled the world making films, which his friends and family refer to as his “mini breaks”. Long may they continue!
