A Business Network Member Celebrates 25 Years
Chester based corporate video production company, Knew Productions, celebrated 25 years of business, with a party for its film crew last month. The evening, held at the Grosvenor Pulford Hotel near Chester, marked 25 years of filming thousands of promotional videos for clients across a variety of industries from manufacturing, construction and pharmaceuticals, through to sport and education.
Initially set up in 1997, working on music videos, television for BBC and ITV Wales and corporate videos, the company incorporated to become Knew Productions Ltd in 2004. One of its highlights was in 2009 when it was chosen to produce recruitment videos for The Royal Engineers and The Royal Signals, with one of the videos going on to win Best Corporate Video at the Institute of Videography (IOV) Awards in 2010.
Filming has taken the ‘Knew Crew’ to many locations across the UK and globally, including Italy, Poland, Spain, France, Thailand and Australia. The team has also worked with numerous well known faces including Sebastian Coe, Andrew Marr, Michael Owen, Martin Clunes and Sir Lenny Henry.
Knew Productions enjoys a hard-earned reputation, its client base has continued to expand and includes companies like The National Trust, Savills, Tetra Pak, Boodles, Abbey Gate College and AstraZeneca.
Commented Richard Knew, founder and managing director at Knew Productions: “Knew Productions has seen a lot of change over the last 25 years, and it has been an exciting journey. Film making has advanced a lot in that time too, and we have adopted the changes as they have been introduced, embracing the digital transformation of the industry. Drone footage and animation now regularly feature in our finished product, something that would not have been possible without a huge time and cost attached to it, when we first started out.”
He continued: “We thought it was important to mark and celebrate our 25 years in business. Our talented, hardworking freelance camera teams and video editors are a huge part of what has made the journey so enduring and successful. And, as we embrace the new chapter in our story, we are keen to continue to develop the ongoing relationships with our clients, many of whom we have worked with repeatedly over the years. We thank them for their business and continued trust.”
