Bold, Exciting, Energetic and Daring.
This is not the place to come if you want very traditional, general, “play it safe” style video content. Clients come to Video Ink to get the exact opposite, because they want to make a big impact and stand out. It’s as simple as that.
Tip: Lighting has a huge influence on the overall video quality. All Video Ink lights are battery powered, so we can shoot pretty much anywhere, any time!

What kind of videos do you make?
While we have a strong music video background – we are not restricted to very niche video types. We carry over that highly visual style into branded content videos. Disruptive, risk-taking brands that attract some need to dramatise impact and entertain their audience are a perfect fit. The most popular videos are music promos, brand launch videos, explainers and demonstrations. In a non-boring type of way.
What clients do you prefer to work with?
Open-minded, risk taking clients who understand the need to do something different than the norm – and who also appreciate modern creativity and visual work for what it is: something very fun, very challenging and rewarding to do.
How much does a video cost?
There isn’t a set cost. because every brief is so different in scope and style, we can’t restrict the possibilities by having set prices that give you too little or too many options. You tell us what you want, and we’ll advise what’s best. (tip: videos ordered in bulk for longer campaigns are most cost effective than ordering a single video now and again).
What does a general video include ?
Well, you get the whole works. Under the same roof. Same team. Same vibes. But different videos everytime. We help create the ideas, we organise it all, we hire the talent, source the locations, shoot the video(s), edit, colour grade, VFX, sound, mastering, delivery. Everything. We even advise you on social media stuff, like putting your videos on Facebook and extending your reach. We’ll keep giving you more value, the more you come to us. Promise.
Do you have your own filming equipment?
We’ll say first that the creativity and ideas are far more important than the gear we’re shooting on – but that’s not to say we love our toys! Yes indeed – our filming equipment has been built to be very portable. Everything we have is battery powered. We can go anywhere, and light anything. It’s pretty sweet! We have cameras, lenses, gimbals, motion slider kits, lighting, editing and so on. Got it all covered.
Do you provide PR and TV submission?
95% of what we do goes online. We don’t provide PR, although we can point you where to go. We do TV submissions for music videos. We don’t manage anyone’s promotions on social media, but we do advise some tips if asked.
How many people are in your team?
There’s 3 main video creatives running Video Ink, with a network of regular freelancers who come on board and bolster the crew with different talents and skills. it’s great this way, as our clients are always dealing with the same people and know what to expect.
What type of videos will you NOT do?
Anything very boring. Extreme very niche things. Stuff that we feel doesn’t fit the universal nature of Video Ink, or is potentially or obviously offensive and immoral, can’t be doing that.
