Documentary Filming Glasgow

Documentary filming in Glasgow is an increasingly popular format used for marketing. Done right, documentary video marketing is a highly effective way to attract customers into the sales funnel.  

A documentary video should ideally teach your customer something new and has to be story-driven. There are a number of universal conventions surrounding documentary video production that we follow according to each project. At Etive Studios, our primary objective in a documentary film is to maintain authenticity throughout the project, allowing the story to form in an organic process. 

Documentary filming, to produce compelling video content, is also powerful for leaving your audience with a lasting impression of your business. An effective business-focused documentary can help build employee camaraderie when the team can visually see themselves cohesively working towards a common goal. In addition, documentary filming – that is professionally filmed and seamlessly edited – can improve the credibility of your brand. Etive Studio has worked on numerous documentary filming projects in Glasgow, helping bring clients’ concepts into a strong, visual reality.

The Story

The essential element of a good documentary is simple: the story! In an increasingly noisy, overcrowded online and offline information space, audiences must have an intellectual and emotional tie to a film to be brought in and kept there to watch in full. Documentary filming must have this “pull” to get them to the end of the film, not an excuse to get away from it and move on to the next thing.
