A film is an effective tool for promoting your activities and delivering your message and content in a dynamic and engaging format. A film can also give your organisation something the written word or still image cannot always successfully convey - a personal and accessible human factor!
Digital films should form an integral part of your organisation's overall marketing strategy.

Types of film
Below are some of the types of film projects we've undertaken in the past but if you have something else in mind, we're happy to discuss your specific requirements.
A film is an effective way of providing a brief overview of your organisation and its activities.
The Axisweb team provide a friendly and professional filmmaking service. From researching candidates and arranging the logistics to ‘on the day’ filming and final execution – the team did it all. On budget, on time and to an incredibly high standard - we couldn’t have asked for any more and are delighted with the results.

Being interviewed by Axisweb was a comfortable
and enjoyable experience which has been very
good for introducing us to a larger audience. It was important for us that we came across as we are, human and approachable and the feedback we get as a result of the interview confirms this.
The interview has certainly helped boost our profile amongst curators and other arts organisations, who have since contacted us for projects or collaborations.

If you have an exhibition to promote, a film can act as an engaging and accessible 'way in' for your potential visitors.
I cannot recommend highly enough Axisweb's
filmmaking services. The Axisweb team meet the highest standards at all stages of production and bring a considerable range of skills to each brief.
The projects I have worked with them on have proved invaluable marketing tools raising the visibility and awareness of my organisation’s work in the North West region and beyond.

Artist and curator interviews
If you're an artist or curator who wants to talk about your practice or promote a specific project, a film is a good substitute for a statement or interpretive text.
I have been a member of Axisweb for years and find this a very useful service in relation to my practice.
I felt very relaxed during the whole filming process, and able to present myself and ideas relating to my practice thoroughly. I am extremely pleased with the resulting film and feel that it adds a valuable and interesting additional layer to my websites, and quickly allows someone insight into my work.
Being interviewed by Axisweb was beneficial as it made me think about a condensed explanation
of my working methods and conceptual
practice, forcing me to reflect on recent work and find ways to make it accessible to people not familiar with my work.
I've had a good year in terms of exposure, opportunities and sales, which I attribute, in part at least, to the Axisweb interview.
It was an enormous endorsement to be interviewed by Axisweb. It was hard to watch myself at first but then you start to think how you want to communicate with an anonymous audience as an artist about your work.
It was also a good opportunity for the viewer to get a sense of who I am as a person, through my facial expressions, voice and gestures – something which is usually hidden behind my work. In the film my character and the work start to blend into each other and creates one unique world that hopefully resonates with the viewer.
Being interviewed by Axisweb was a great experience as it allowed a wider audience to see my work and in turn has given me more confidence to pursue my goals.
It has helped raise my profile and has led to sales of my work and a number of exhibition opportunities including The Manchester Contemporary; 'Lost is Found' at Cornerhouse, Manchester and 'A Private Affair' at the Harris Museum & Art Gallery, Preston. I thank Axisweb for this great experience.
