Video Design & Production
Working with SPL Communications, has been an excellent experience. This was our first attempt at creating professionally produced YouTube videos. Ian Sandall's experience and guidance made this process stress free and the production seamless. We are delighted with the results. We will be using Ian again, and would recommend him without hesitation. More...
We were impressed with Ian’s grasp of the specialised nature of the copy we needed for our new site. His knowledge and obvious enthusiasm for the subject meant that the copy was exactly what we were looking for and we intend to carry on using him as the site develops.
His ability to incorporate SEO keywords into our copy was a bonus and will be invaluable to our business going forward. More...
We commissioned Ian to produce a series of testimonial videos of our dealerships.
Ian was amazing. He took into account everything we wanted to get out of the videos and delivered above and beyond.
During the whole process, there was clear and regular communication with various suggestions, additions and changes. All of which, helped elevate the videos even further.
He was extremely prepared and flexible due to lockdown concerns in areas where we needed filming. He made the whole thing effortless. Polite and professional all the way through. I can imagine we will be seeing him again for more. More...
Commercial, Movie, or Music Videography
I was pleased we selected Ian Sandall to direct and produce our recent film. We were all impressed by his understanding of our product and the requirements of the brief, getting up to speed quickly and even introducing us to other suitable suppliers for specialist work. The finished film has surpassed my expectations and gained many positive responses from our stakeholders. I’m happy to recommend Ian to any organisation requiring films for a specialised or technically-based product / service. More...
We asked Ian at SPL to make a series of videos to explain our proposition and record some case study testimonials. I must admit I had underestimated how much thinking has to happen to get a good result but Ian was totally on it. He really knows what has to happen to make videos which say what you need them to say. We are very pleased with ours. Top notch. Whether it's your own money or your marketing budget, you can relax if you get Ian involved. Thoroughly recommended. More...
My name is Patrick Gaydecki, Professor of Digital Signal Processing at the University or Manchester, and also Director of Signal Wizard systems Ltd, a spin-off company from the university that develops and commercializes consumer audio devices for the music industry and performance artists.
We commissioned SPL Communications to produce an official promotion video for vsound - an effects pedal for violinists - which is one of our flagship products. During our planning meetings with Ian Sandall, I was impressed with his professionalism, evident expertise and meticulous attention to detail. In particular, he asked many searching questions that subsequently proved to be of key significance in the shooting of the video.
Ian Sandall made all necessary preparations for the filming, optimizing the execution of the procedure and leaving nothing to chance. This meant that on the day of the filming, which took place in a recording studio, the various scenes were shot with efficiency and in a timely manner. It became evident during this process that he was a consummate professional with all aspects of the filming, addressing matters including scene setting, lighting, positioning, sound levels and sequencing with an expertise that was reassuring to his clients.
The final promotion video was released after several discussions that centred on the initial cuts that Ian prepared. We are very happy indeed with the final product, which is rapidly accumulating views – and likes - on our YouTube channel. The video is polished and engaging, with a fluent voice-over and narrative trajectory that is compelling and also intriguing. In short, within the space of less than three minutes (an ideal length for such a video) it tells a good story with impact and conviction.
I repeat that we are absolutely delighted with our video and we cannot recommend SPL Communications, and Ian Sandall, highly enough. More...
We were delighted with the videos produced by SPL which faithfully captured the essence and ethos of our company, its people and the innovative Arvia water treatment system. We were also impressed with Ian’s technical understanding of our processes, enabling him to ask the right questions when interviewing and then structure the videos to appeal to our target audiences. Personally I’m not really at ease in front of a camera but Ian made it painless for us all here. I can highly recommend SPL to anyone looking for a professionally-produced technically-based video.

The attention to detail from brief to final film from SPL is superb. Getting to grips with the issues, showing clear understanding of the task in hand and then executing it is rare and Ian managed to do this perfectly and quickly. His guidance and suggestions resulted in films for Solvo Vir that exceeded our expectations. I can’t recommend SPL highly enough. More...
