“We had been talking about using video for a while and exploring the idea of producing videos to improve our internal communications which is when we contacted John at Stephens Media to help us achieve this.

What can I say… John has been a pleasure to work with, creating high quality, engaging videos which have helped us spread messages throughout Old Mill via our internal social networks. We now do quarterly video updates, have had video featured in our annual Strategy Day and have also filmed our support teams and their key roles within the firm which now are part of the induction process. Everyone who has worked with John has come to life in front of the camera especially those who were particularly nervous. We have not just created video but have taken our communication a step forward here at Old Mill.

After seeing the benefits internally we have also produced a client testimonial video with our client about their use of cloud accounting software, Xero – this is now on our website and has been shared via social media.

If you are looking for high quality video with a professional and friendly service, contact John at Stephens Media – you won’t go wrong!”

The Benefits of Video

The Benefits of Video

“Google loves video, and they reward websites that use videos with a higher search ranking (that may have something to do with the fact that they own YouTube). Adding an explainer video to your site not only converts more visitors, it brings more visitors to be converted.

Why Video?

It’s your chance for your own tailored made video showcasing YOUR business with renowned business awards nominee (3 times!) and much respected food and drink Videographer John Stephens.

“John has years of experience filming and producing food and drink business videos and films.”

“He has also been in front of camera too in 2009 on tv with a food and drink BBC tv project and, in 2018 he had a 5 part tv food and drink documentary aired on Amazon Prime TV.”

What's in it for YOU then?

Well, an average 2 minute business video, including shorter cut Social Media video clips for Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube etc and, including a Video Marketing Guide with professional tips and advice of how to make the most of your video(s), including regular reviews with John, the price of the video package starts from £799.

Plus, you also (the video) gets the chance to appear in the online tv food and drink series, ‘A Taste of The West Country.’

What John can bring to your business is not just his creative innovative approach, nor his coveted qualifications but crucially his years of experience working within corporate and the food and drink film industry with major brands. 

His first tv experience was appearing as a participant for a food and drink programme on the BBC, this gave him the confidence, experience and understanding of what it’s like to appear on the other side of the camera. 

John started his career within the butchery trade, then hospitality as a trainee chef and bar manager, cleaning the lines and cooking late into the evening working split shifts!

John has a healthy knowledge in the food and drinks industry and when it comes to filming, his aim is to bring the very best out of people, and his goal is always to tell a good story on camera for the viewers to enjoy. He is active within social media with over 12,000 followers on his food and drink twitter account. He’s fantastic when it comes to YouTubeFacebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, (basically social media!)LinkedIn and with video marketing.

John is based in central Somerset and actively travels throughout the West Country in pursuit of excellent food and drink to film.
