Positive relationships with our clients are at the heart of the Inspired way of doing things. We work with some great people and it’s always pleasing to get positive feedback about the quality of our work and the real benefits to our clients and their businesses. Here are a few of the comments we have had about people’s experiences of working with us and the films we produced for them.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say a massive thank you for all your hard work putting together the videos for the Celebrating Excellence Awards.
It seems like such a short amount of time since we had the first meeting to discuss them and watching them last Friday on the big screen at the event was fantastic.
We were seriously impressed with the films and you absolutely nailed the brief. We had some great feedback on the night from our directors too.
Thank you so much again and we hope we can we can work with you again in the future.
Staffordshire & Stoke on Trent Partnership NHS Trust - June 2017
The whole experience of working with Inspired Film and Video was excellent. They came to us recommended and lived up to our expectations. Dan and his team were very engaging and helpful at all times and the end result was absolutely fit for purpose. Thank you
University Hospitals North Midlands – Feb 2017
i wanted to say how much we’ve enjoyed working with Inspired and how pleased we are with the health literacy film that you made for us here at Stoke-on-Trent City Council. Your response to the tender was very professional and your track record gave us confidence that we were making a good choice. We particularly appreciated your flexibility and creativity in finding the right people and locations to feature in the film. Health literacy as a subject is not always an easy concept to share with people, so we were also very pleased that you took the time to understand the subject itself and make recommendations both from a content as well as a filming perspective. The film has already been shown locally, and is getting a good reaction and provoking discussions, which is what we had hoped for. It has also been seen by national and international experts in health literacy, who are keen to use it as a resource in their work too. I hope we get to work together again in the future.
Stoke on Trent City Council – Dec 2016
This is a wonderful production. Very moving. Poignant. Honouring. Sobering. You have captured the core aspects to this story and its historical and contemporary relevance extremely well. I enjoyed, and was held captive, every single minute.
Stoke on Trent City Centre Partnership – Nov 2016
Working with the team at Inspired is always a pleasure. It’s a ‘no fuss’ set up, the calm attitudes of the team make working together in sometimes stressful situations very easy. The expert knowledge of everyone at Inspired shines through when we discuss the initial brief – their enthusiastic suggestions about types of equipment to use and filming styles always impresses me. We’ve worked on several videos now with Inspired, some of which on similar themes, however each time they are able to include new elements and techniques to enhance the film and add new aspects. Editing and general turn-around times after the shoot are always speedy, and again done with no fuss or drama. Customer Service is delivered excellently throughout the process. Filming shoots – even the long ones – through the night, the crew remain professional at all times, communications are excellent and service is second to none. I would not hesitate to recommend Inspired Filming I look forward to working with you on many more occasions in the future.
CJ Retail – Nov 2016
It has been a great process working with Inspired Film and Video. What can seem like a daunting project was made clear and enjoyable from the very beginning, right through to the filming and editing stages. Inspired were also more than happy to make any amends we required in the final stages. It was lovely to work with everyone involved and we look forward to working with Inspired again in the future. Our films are currently live on our website https://www.ttpumps.com/how-to/
TT Pumps – Oct 2016
The Sir Stanley Matthews Foundation are delighted to work with Inspired Film and Video on our projects. They are professional, competitively priced but more importantly, they understand the brief that is provided and go the extra mile to ensure that everything is covered and everyone is happy with the outcome.
Sir Stanley Matthews Foundation – May 2016
Working with Inspired Film & Video was very much as expected based on our initial discussions. Communication was always timely and clear, and at the event itself the team slotted into place so seamlessly that those in attendance barely knew they were there. They went about their business on the day with the up most professionalism, understanding quickly what I wanted to achieve footage-wise. Turnaround of the finished product was faster than anticipated, again aided by Michael’s effective communication, and on the back of this I have already commissioned Inspired Film & Video for a subsequent project with more in mind in the future.
Develop Training – May 2016
It has been a pleasure working with the team. The finished videos are very professional and an excellent resource. The recording went very smoothly and the team were knowledgeable and flexible working around service user needs.
Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent Partnerships NHS Trust – Mar 2016
Slick, visceral, professional yet down to earth and warm, the whole team at Inspired Film and Video have been an utter pleasure to work with. The project from start to finish was easy, relaxed and straightforward- the results being exactly how we imagined, if not more. The collaboration has worked so well that we will be doing another time lapse video in the near future- and without a doubt it will be the team at Inspired doing it.
Aganto – Dec 2015
Inspired Film and Video did a fantastic job producing our Age Friendly City Celebration video in line with the brief we supplied them. Working with them was a pleasure and I was grateful to just be able to let them get on with their work, not worrying about micro-managing the project or chasing them up on anything. Sidd was a pleasure to deal with and did a fantastic job coordinating the filming at 4 different locations. The video was completed to the standards we wanted and within the expected time-frame, I can’t fault their service and would happily recommend Inspired.
Saltbox Christian Centre – Nov 2015
On behalf of Sir Bobby Charlton, my fellow trustees and the team at Find A Better Way, may I express my sincere thanks to the team at Inspired for the wonderful work you do for the charity. The films you produce are of the highest standard and Inspired are a pleasure to work with.
Find A Better Way – Nov 2015
Our experience with the Inspired Film & Video team has only been a positive one. We have worked with them on a number of projects now and found their creative direction, professionalism and level of communication to be their stand out values. Opportunities to provide input into the direction of the project are available at any stage and they are willing to make any change no matter the size or difficulty of the task. Their dedication to achieve their client’s desired output is paramount to everything they do. You’re guaranteed to receive a great video by working with the Inspired team.
Connexica – Nov 2015
Working with Inspired Film and Video has been a very rewarding experience. The crew were not only professional, but friendly and made our staff feel comfortable in front of the camera. The whole process of filming was fascinating, and directing guidance from staff was very useful. The editing and requested changes were completed almost immediately. Overall service was definitely worth recommending!
Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust – Oct 2015
Working with the Inspired Film and Video team has been a pleasure. From the very beginning of the project the entire team has been committed to ensuring that our vision came to life in film. The outcome has been a professional, well-thought out film which was a delight to show at our Annual General Meeting, where the film was met with compliments from professional colleagues and members of the general public alike. I’d highly recommend the team at Inspired, who became an extension of our team during the filming process. They are true professionals in all aspects of their work, and have the skills and professionalism to represent not only Inspired Film and Video , but our organisation when out meeting out patients and service users. Thanks so much for your flexibility and ongoing support throughout. We look forward to working with you in the future.
Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent Partnerships NHS Trust – Sep 2015
The end product is superb and will be a valuable learning tool for our transition process. The filming team was keen, full of ideas, unobtrusive and thoroughly professional. The crew put the students and staff at their ease and had an eye for what shots supported the School’s ethos and ideas.
Sheringham High School – Jul 2015
The film is great and is exactly what we were hoping to achieve. We want to use it as widely as possible and across many different platforms, sharing it with the companies we have engaged with would show how amazing it is. Thank you to Inspired for making this happen, it’s really impressive and I’m sure we’ll use Inspired again for future services! “This looks great and should be used as widely as we possibly can. Thank you to everyone who contributed – I think it is really impressive.” – Justine Alldritt Human Resources Manager “This looks fab, we’re keen to use this video on as many platforms as possible as we want to share it with companies we have engaged with”. – Diane Poulson Human Resources Manager “Fabulous this is exactly what I wanted, many thanks Dan, I am sure we will be contacting you again to do more excellent work for us.” – Gill Adamson Hospital Director
UHNM NHS Trust – Jul 2015
Following on from the film you developed in relation to ‘Living with Cystic Fibrosis’, I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank you for taking the time to educate the healthcare and educational staff. I asked the delegates to provide feedback and some of the comments included: “Amazing!, great Film, provided me with insight, great video! right length to give key facts and create intrigue. And the film scored an average 9.8 out of 10 amongst the audience.
UHNM NHS Trust – Jun 2015
I found the film so inspirational. It told the story of the strike through the eyes of adults but who were children themselves in the strike. It showed how they related to the issues at the time, how they felt about their parents role in the dispute, what they learned from their experiences and which path they took in their future growing up years. Very moving and a very well made film. A great piece of history seen through the eyes of a child.
North Staffs Miners Wives Action Group – Jun 2015
Inspired were incredibly accommodating from the very first proposal to the final piece which was produced. Throughout the production the level of professionalism was outstanding, no detail was under looked and they worked hard to make sure the piece was how we wanted it. To sum up the final piece I would say, inspirational!
Baxi Solutions – May 2015
For our 100th anniversary commemoration exhibition we wanted to bring to life the experiences of those who had endured the First World War both on the battle and home front. Inspired Film and Video were able to achieve this by expertly taking a range of historical sources and transforming them into powerful documentary films that accurately and sensitively depict the effects on those who lived, worked, fought and died during that time.
Brampton Museum – Apr 2015
The video Inspired produced is fantastic! I am amazed at what was achieved in the short time available. Congratulations to the Inspired team, having the freestyle BMX rider front the video was a stroke of genius and your entire team did a marvellous job!
Design & Technology Association – Apr 2015
We have recently worked with Inspired Film and Video on a project to capture the thoughts and experience of our trainee teachers as they took part in an extended placement in special schools. Inspired took some time talking to us about our project so that they were able to pinpoint exactly what we wanted. They were extremely helpful, professional and supportive. They advised us thoroughly, guiding us on how best to capture the information we wanted. The end product was a superb short video that really encapsulated the essence of our project. They are a friendly and highly professional group to work with and we certainly intend to work with them in the future.
Keele & NS Primary SCITT – Mar 2015
Our Pathology Service is a complex and multifunctional combination of laboratories which also includes Logistics, Point of Care and Phlebotomy provision; this presented a considerable challenge to Inspired Film and Video since we needed all aspects of our performance to be covered. We would like to emphasise how impressed we were that Inspired not only delivered a polished result but also took the time to understand our perspectives and were happy to re-edit until our exact specifications had been met. This, together with efficient scheduling, ensured a minimum disruption but with maximum output. The film was used for a Health Service Journal bid and the judges were most impressed with the video. Nothing was too much trouble. I would not hestiate to recommend Inspired Film and Video and this Trust continues to enjoy their excellent support.
Wolverhampton NHS Trust – Mar 2015
Our experience working with Inspired Film and Video couldn’t have been more enjoyable or professional. What made the process for me was the kindess of their entire team. I organised to have our video shot via email from the other side of the world, but their reponses were so quick and helpful it was like they were across the street. They then proceeded to pick me up from the train station, showed ridiculous patience during my piece-to-camera in horrible English weather, and were efficient in putting together a professional video that we’re proud to showcase on our website. Even though I’m back in Australia I’m trying to think of ways that we can use Inspired again for future projects.
Catapult – Feb 2015
We were overwhelmed with the professional approach taken by Inspired when working with employees from all areas of our business. They really understood the importance of our ‘Stepping up to the Plate’ Awards Evening, and made sure to convey our culture and atmosphere throughout the films produced. The brief was challenging and quite complex but the team worked really hard with Steelite International’s PR department to ensure sensational videos were produced and played throughout the awards evening, and the videos served as a brilliant souvenir afterwards.
Steelite International – Feb 2015
The thing that impressed me most about Inspired was their outstanding communication skills and their fast turnaround of the film. The content from these events is only very useful to us if we can show it quickly and the team quickly understood the importance of this to us and worked within very tight time limitations while maintaining the highest of professional standards. We were also impressed with the way that Inspired represented us on the evening making our partners, speakers and associates feel completely at ease when being interviewed on the night.
Smarta – Jan 2015
It is the overall high standard of service that has always impressed me most about Inspired. The level of professionalism they provide when representing us is outstanding, the films are always of the highest quality and the marketing support they provide both before and after the production of every film truly stands them out from the competition.
UHNS Charity – Jan 2015
We always appreciate Inspired’s help when we send our team over to the UK from Copenhagen. Our reporters find them extremely reliable and easy to work with and we have no hesitation in using their footage for national broadcast here in Denmark.
SBS TV (Denmark) – Dec 2014
From the first meeting, Inspired’s sense of passion and genuine engagement was evident. The thoughtful development of the brief and the care taken to fully connect with the school’s core values has led to a high quality completed project that will form the inspiring centrepiece of the school’s website. Inspired Film and Video have throughout been: committed to creative partnership, highly professional, organised, reliable, and responsive; ensuring this project has from start to finish been an outstanding experience for the school. I would unreservedly recommend Inspired Film and Video to other schools. You really have realised the vision and provided us with something we will remain very proud of. Thank you!
Madeley High School – Dec 2014
We came to Inspired with a really challenging brief. From our very first meeting with them I felt entirely confident that we were in safe hands and that they would help us find the best possible visual representation of what St Luke’s is really about. Inspired never wavered from their determination to work with us to get that message exactly right. They responded to our every need, talked us through the process of putting the film together and unquestionably went the extra mile to ensure that the film we now have is a brilliant reflection of St Luke’s. People wept after watching the film and for us, bringing that emotional intensity to what we do was something that I never thought a film company would be able to do. Our expectations were well exceeded. We now use this film at every avaliable opportunity and for me personally there is no better way of describing what we do at St Luke’s than showing Inspired’s outstanding work. I cannot recommend their services highly enough.
St Luke's Hospice – Nov 2014
I have worked with Inspired Film and Video on a regular basis for many years now. There standards are always extremely high and the work they produce is of an excellent quality – their films have helped me to promote my publishing business very successfully. They are a young and enthusiastic company of talented artists and technicians and will go far in a highly competitive industry.
Henson Editorial – Nov 2014
We were conscious that we were delving into an extremely sensitive and delicate area of work, and required a professional, patient, understanding and person centred video company to work with us and that is exactly what we found in Inspired. The Inspired team continued to consult and involve with us each step of the way, in order to produce the end product which exceeded our expectations. A powerful, professional and captive film which we hope to be the first of a suite of films. Thank you once again Inspired from all at Choices Safeguarding Consultation Group
Choices Housing – Oct 2014
As a company you have been really easy to work with. The team have been professional throughout and the end product has met and exceeded our expectations and we’d just like to say thank you for all your hard work. Spot on, 5/5!
Stoke on Trent City Council – Oct 2014
I just wanted to say a big thank you for your work on the DVD for our staff conference. It went down a treat and worked really well, with the right balance of emotion and level-headedness.
Aspire Group – Sep 2014
For the last two years we have held awards days where we celebrate the excellent contributions of our people to the services we provide. A vital part of those awards days has been the film – 32 of them in total – that we use to show what everyone does. This year we wanted to really challenge ourselves and a film production company to get the most varied content possible. Inspired exceeded our expectations. The films were absolutely fantastic and had a great impact on everyone who attended the event. They really brought the event to life. So a massive “thank you” from us. It’s been a pleasure working with you Inspired!
Cheshire West and Chester Council – Aug 2014
We gave the team a vision we wanted expressing in film and an impossible deadline in which to do it. They succeeded on both levels. Easy to work with, open, honest, friendly, professional and great at what they do, I am happy to recommend Inspired Film and Video without hesitation.
Staffordshire Housing Association – Jul 2014
The promotional films Inspired have made for us have more than doubled our sales conversion rates and the training video in the UK alone is saving us £50,000 a year in overhead costs. This is all without even taking into accounts the massive sums that I will save from using these films to grow my overseas share of the market. The payback on the investment has been counted in weeks, not years. The whole project was time-managed impeccably and I will be using the Inspired guys again in the future. I would have no hesitation in recommending the company
Skinbase – Jun 2014
It’s been great working with Inspired Film and Video over the past few months. Their proactive approach to understanding our business and accurate interpretation of the original brief ensured a hassle-free project and a wonderfully creative end result.
Sibelco UK – May 2014
Plinkfizz has worked with the team at Inspired on a number of different projects. Most recently, we created a unique collaborative partnership in order to address the technical and creative needs of a well known organisation. The team’s technical knowledge and recommendations proved invaluable during this process and I would not hesitate in recommending Inspired as a provider of good quality film production services.
Plinkfizz – Apr 2014
