What is the vision for your care home video?

The first step is getting to know your vision – how you want your care home (s) to be portrayed?  What are your expectations for the care home video?  

  • Do you want a longer, 3 – 5 minute video that showcases your care home(s)? 

    This is one of our most requested care home videos because it’s versatile.  Most companies use them for their website and then we can edit shorter snippets that can be used for social media. Care home videos can be sent to stakeholders or to the local authority to showcase your home for tenders.  They can also be used to support awards applications which can have an incredible impact on the local (and potentially national) PR for your home.
  • Do you want a care home video tour?

    Simply showcasing the best bits of your home so potential residents and their families can see it quickly and easily.
  • Do you want testimonials? 

    Let’s speak to your residents and their families about why they love living. This allows potential customers to hear it for themselves straight from the people who matter. Let’s also chat with your staff about how much they love their job to help boost recruitment. Or maybe you want to make an advert for your care home or service.

In our experience, the best videos capture a mix of the home’s architecture and design features, mixed with interviews from managers, staff members and very importantly residents and residents’ families. Throw in some shots of great food, a beautiful garden and some fun, interactive activities and we’re on to a winner.

We know what to look for – we know what makes a fantastic shot and all this will be discussed beforehand to ensure we have the very best chance of securing it on the day. The planning process is always tailored to you and your availability.

What happens on the day of filming?

On the day, our crew arrives with everything we need to capture the best possible stories including state of the art lighting and camera equipment.

We have filmed in hundreds of care homes (in fact our running total is over 300) so we instinctively know what we can and can’t film. We’ll also work with you beforehand to discuss any other sensitive areas that we need to be aware of.

We are very used to working with and interviewing residents and we have found that most people love having us there on the day – we have a lot of fun capturing footage and the video crew is used to dealing with everything from unexpected evacuations (of every kind!!) to amorous residents.

Post production

After we’ve finished filming with you – your footage goes straight into the edit to be crafted into your finished film.

In most cases, the editing takes much longer than the filming. This is purely because we need to go through all of the interview footage to pick out the very best bits from our time with you.  We then pair this with the best shots to help tell your story and colour grade it before it comes to you for the first viewing.

If you have any changes to the film, you have two rounds of amends included in the cost of the video. This is to ensure that you’re fully satisfied with the end result.
