Video Success Stories

Scott Wilson-Evans
Strategic Head of Communications at NHS Wales

“Haydn and the team supported in the filming and editing of a campaign video for Building a Fairer Gwent, Commissioned by the Gwent Public Services Board, through Aneurin Bevan University Health Board. Haydn and the team were extremely accommodating and took the time to really understand our requirements. The end product was well received by stakeholders and continues to be used over a year on. Would highly recommend Black Swan Productions to anyone in need of a fab video team!"

Frank Meilack
Community Engagement Director at Memoria

“Very pleased to be able to say that I’ve been working with Black Swan Productions for the first 6 months of this year and we’ve done a number of things preparing professional videos and photogaphy for products that we’re about to launch on our retail webpage, films around our beautiful facilities, training videos and a number of other projects that we’re working on, and I have to say their professionalism has been absolutely outstanding, we are delighted with what they’ve done for us, and the end productions have been absolutely exceptional, highly recommend Black Swan Productions."

Clive Thomas
Managing Director at Watkins & Gunn

“We wanted videos to bring our business to life online as sometimes still images and text just don’t really get the brand and our message across. So, I approached Black Swan Productions to help us. They were very approachable and quickly understood the brief, and we formed a plan to deliver a bespoke video. Arrangements were very flexible, and we filmed at our offices. There were plenty of challenges as we as lawyers are not the most natural in front of camera, but they used their experience to put everyone at their ease and made sure that we had the perfect setting and backdrop. Black Swan delivered a high-quality product that we’re really happy with and I would highly recommend them. As a result, we’ve chosen to use them on a number of other projects and have been equally delighted with the outcome."

Jamieson Hodgson
Deputy CEO at Memoria

“Black Swan were professional throughout. They shot a 2-hour long training video for us which had to incorporate hours of old footage from 80s and 90s television programmes and then edit that into a long piece to camera which looked to replicate an in-person training session. I was particularly impressed by the work ethic displayed in identifying the older footage which was not an easy task. We then went through several edits in post-production – all of which were managed well and in a timely fashion. I would have no issue in recommending Black Swan to any organisation – large or small."

Shane Hyland
Co-Director at The Success Seminar

“We were looking for a great promotional video to promote our upcoming high-profile event in the Principality Stadium called The Success Seminar. Our original plan was to shoot a very quick promo with some smaller clips around the stadium, but after chatting with the team at Black Swan Productions, we collaborated on creative ideas to come up with something far more engaging and unique that has gone down really with with customers and been very successful in selling tickets. Deciding to film around Cardiff, walking and talking to the camera whilst highlighting various iconic locations brought everything together nicely. The overall planning, directing, cinematography, audio, editing and everything was excellent and we're all very happy with the videos provided, and looking forward to working with Black Swan Productions again, as they'll also be filming the event in September! We had a lot of fun during filming and highly recommend them.

Cerian Angharad MBE
Managing Director at See Science

“We had no previous experience of video production and were very lucky to have Black Swan Productions recommended to us! They provided much needed expertise, bringing to life what was previously a slide presentation with engaging footage targeted at teenagers in schools, adding information and figures with fun music and using the narration we provided. They were also patient with us, answering our questions and accommodating numerous edits in English and Welsh. We’ve had great feedback on the videos thus far and are looking forward to working with Black Swan Productions in the future."

Gavin Hill-John
Executive Director at BNI South Wales

“The team at Black Swan Productions have created a fantastic promotional video for BNI that really highlights the business opportunities along with the friendships made through networking. The quality of not only the production but also the scripting is outstanding. I’d have no hesitation in recommending the team to any business looking to market themselves through video.

Lucy O'Brien
Director at Watkins & Gunn

“We wanted to make a video to showcase our Colleague Wellbeing sub-brand and programme of events. We wanted the video to be a unique reflection of our firm's values and our collaborative spirit. Black Swan quickly understood the brief and were happy to offer us a live editing session so that we could work together to ensure the end product was exactly what we wanted. We're really delighted with the outcome and I would highly recommend them."

Emily Borghese
Wales Legal Awards

“On behalf of the Wales Legal Awards, Black Swan Productions created a fantastic video showcasing the ceremony winners and celebrations. We were thrilled with the outcome and would highly recommend Haydn and Black Swan Productions for any promotional videos/film requirements."
