Selectamark have worked with Makinov Film & Video on a wide and varied range of projects over including conference, training, and product demonstration videos. We have always found Jonny to be highly professional, organised and committed to delivering on time and to brief. Makinov's account management is friendly and supportive, and Jonny always ensures that we are all in agreement at every stage of the creative and development process. More...

I cannot recommend Makinov Film & Video enough - Jonny is hugely creative, incredibly professional, and fantastic with people. He has worked with us to film a broad range of stakeholders from young hospital patients to national brands, and from large scale public events to interviewing high profile celebrities. He always takes the time to fully understand our vision, interpreting briefs to the highest standard and on budget. I've really enjoyed working together on a range of very successful marketing initiatives, with Jonny creating emotive and impactful short films which always result in high levels of engagement for our charitable organisation.

We initially used Makinov Film & Video for a training and promotional video for our company. Having never used this type of service before we were pleased with the professional approach to the project and creative suggestions of how we could make it the best it could be. Since that initial video we have used Makinov several times and wouldn’t go any where else. The end product is always fantastic and the demand on our time minimal. We would highly recommend Makinov Film & Video. More...

The video has provided great exposure for us and we would highly recommend Makinov Film & Video's services. More...

Q&A

It's ever changing. I get to meet new people to collaborate with on a regular basis and no two projects are truly the same. I've had jobs in the past that involved a fairly routine system to the point it becomes difficult to remember the unique moments. Working in video it's always new, I'm always learning, I'm always pushing forward and while I might have been doing this for past 6 years, it constantly feels as exciting as a first day.

I wouldn't strictly say I was inspired to start my own business as much as I was inspired to turn what I loved into a full time passion. Is it work? Is it business? Of course. Does it feel like work? I don't really have that distinction anymore. What I do have is the sense of how lucky I am to do what I love for a living and there's nothing better than sharing that with others to highlight their own passions and achievements.

I take the time to understand what my clients businesses are and where they're going. Typically it's not enough to know where a company is at when a project is in the making, you need to know where it's going to be in 6, 12, 18 months time so the film has value going forward. I treat each film like I'm promoting a part of myself, so going above and beyond isn't for the odd client, it's for all of my clients.
