A monitor to the right of the camera shows a live feed of the woman, and a softbox light stands on the right, illuminating the scene.

Why use video?

Scaling a startup business is hard. Whether you’re juggling customer enquiries, keeping on top of staff and customer training, or trying to reach new markets, the only way to keep everyone happy is to communicate effectively. That’s where video comes in.

By investing in video, you’ll receive an easily shareable, infinitely reusable asset that delivers the exact same message every time it’s watched.

If you’re looking for creative, social marketing videos that will help you sell your products and services, or you’re looking to make educating staff or customers easier, a well crafted video will deliver your messages time and time again, without letting you down.

First impressions count

Startups don’t have the same brand recognition as large, established companies. There’s a strong chance that every visit to your website, every trade show, and every investment pitch will be your first impression on someone. So it’s important that you’re presenting yourself the way you want to be seen.

That’s what we do at Southpoint Films. We’ll work with you to make sure that your first impression is the right one. Through our experience of producing videos for businesses of all sizes, we’ll make sure that your videos look amazing – and in turn, so does your business.

For example, Tom Gibson of Blackhill Studios used video to promote his recording studio. Immediately, his prospective customers knew what his business was about and what to expect from booking with him. In fact, one customer booked a session with him because he was wearing a specific band t-shirt!

Promotional Videos

It doesn’t matter if your business is already operating, or if you’re still in the concept stage, video can be used to promote your products, services or business in general. 

We’ve worked with startups to produce everything from product demonstrations, to “meet the founder” videos, to remote investment pitches.

Animation & Motion Graphics

Animation and motion graphics are fantastic tools for demonstrating concepts and ideas. We’ve used animation to help startups with pre-launch concept videos, showcasing what a business could achieve in the future, with the right investment and support.

Training & Support Videos

As a startup founder, you wear all of the hats. Which usually means that you don’t have much time to spare.

Instead of delivering time-consuming and repetitive customer and staff training yourself, we can work with you to create a series of videos that explain how your products, services or businesses work. 

These videos can be used over and over again, and can even be put on your website to reduce the number of customer support requests you receive.

Event Video Production

Video production can help you extract more value out of the events your startup hosts and attends. 

Many events, such as trade shows and exhibitions, are filled with customers, suppliers and investors. By bringing a film crew, we can capture testimonials and interviews with the biggest champions for your startup, all in one go. 

Other events, such as launch parties and customer demos, can also benefit from video. They can be used to promote your startup and its milestones – which can be great for PR – or recorded so that they can be reused later for training and customer support.

Rowan and the team at South Point were a joy to work with on the updating of our videos with the new version of the Care Friends app. Rowan is super proactive and contributes so much more than his technical and creative skills. He understands our product, the market and what we are trying to achieve, and made a very valuable overall contribution to the end result.
