SOME WISE WORDS
1/4 – Duration
Often clients come to us with an idea of duration in mind, and how that time can be best filled. Often they’ve over-estimated.
We’re experts at condensing information into something punchy in as little time as needed, without it coming across like a jumbled sprint. Rest assured, if we think your ideas can shave off some time (and possibly money) we’ll let you know. But remember, it’s also harder to plan a 30-second video than it is a minute!
SOME WISE WORDS
2/4 – Complexity
When you require animation in your video, moving a box from one edge of the frame to another is straightforward enough, but making a character with limbs ‘walk’ the same path is quite different. That means if a short video is packed full of characters and movement you can guarantee the production time (and fees) will be higher. We’ll help you determine what you can achieve for your budget while making sure the video does what’s intended. But if you want something specific, let us know, and we’ll help you establish its feasibility.
SOME WISE WORDS
3/4 – Scriptwriting
Scriptwriting is the most integral part of the video. It provides direction, timing and a model for how your message is taken on board, emotions and all. If a script is uninspiring or jumbled, the video’s effectiveness will plummet.
We’ll ensure, with a few directions from yourself, that the script is created to a high standard and to a tone of voice your target market can appreciate, without losing your own brand’s personality. But most important of all, we’ll make sure that your viewers understand the proposition and want to know more.
SOME WISE WORDS
4/4 – The Art of Voice-Overs
Choosing the right voice-over artist isn’t rocket science, but an art form. They can add a lot of personality and clarity to a video, but they have to speak for you and to your viewers. If your market doesn’t speak in “pigeon English”, a well-pronounced “how do you do?” artist won’t help your cause.
Jammy Custard has spent years developing relationships with voice-over artists from across the UK and beyond, helping find the best match for any video and intended market.
Working with us
We use Basecamp
To keep project communication simple and well documented we use an online project management tool called Basecamp, where all aspects of the project are discussed. It also helps keep projects on track as we work towards that all-important deadline.
We can provide multiple user accounts to your business, so all team members can be keep track of progress, scheduling and when your input is needed, as well as uploading and downloading files – 24 hours a day.
All under contract
All our projects are placed under a contractual agreement, ensuring fairness throughout for all involved.
Rather than fuss with paper contracts signed using ink we use an online system called Signable, allowing you to receive a link to an agreement on a secure server where you can read and digitally sign. It’s instant, secure and legally binding – no paper or postage required! However, if a company policy needs us to get the quill and ink out, no problem.
Professional And fun
We realise how important this work is to your team, and we’ll ensure our conduct is professional and sincere. It is also vital that everyone enjoys the project.
Our ‘Brief Exploration’ workshops require energy and vitality to get the grey matter whirring, so you can be sure we’ll maintain a supply of treats to keep energy levels topped up.
“Jammy Custard have a great drive for results; keeping a tight ship on project plan and schedule.
The Jammies make sure they really understand the client and their needs; they really ‘get us’ and what we want to achieve, and each time have pulled fantastic results out of the bag.
I cannot recommend them highly enough and do so at every available opportunity. If you hire them you won’t be disappointed.”

4 Step Video Project Process
To start, we find out everything we need to know about your objectives, your audience and your offering. We use any number of techniques and strategies to gain all the information we need, and that’s when ideas start to form.
This stage is where the ideas are filtered down, and the core ideas become fleshed out. We’ll produce critical components like scripts and storyboards, and begin to plan whatever additional resources are needed.
This is where things really start to stir. This stage involves bringing the idea to life through filming, animating, cutting and editing the resources to form the final video content.
The final stage is creating the product, whether that’s getting a DVD Press unit ready, or getting a video uploaded to a video server and optimised.
Spreading the message with print
Supporting your video with printed materials can help keep your message front and centre for your staff.
Whether it’s a simple leaflet or poster around the workplace or a booklet filled with additional information that they can take home and read, it’s essential to keep everything consistent to strengthen your message. That’s why having our experienced design team on hand to produce both your video and print together is such a strength!
While it’s difficult for us to show pricing for bespoke projects, we do want to give you a good idea of the investment needed. We will provide a no-obligation quote after initial discussions and refine costs as conversations develop. If you have a budget and vision in mind for your project, let us know and we’ll work with you to realise a solution right for you. We’re also happy to discuss flexible payment plans.
We welcome the opportunity to develop retainer agreements to become your HR and Internal Comms trusty “Creative Department”. We can offer competitively reduced rates for an agreed level of work and with easy review and breakout clauses.
