I help Cotswold creative business owners and female founders just like you to show up online with style and grace, and share the story of their brand through beautiful cinematic branding films.

When the films arrived in my inbox I was lost for words.
The details Emma captured were beautiful, but what I was really taken aback by was the energy and warmth the film encapsulated.
It felt like I was transported back to that moment.

What is a Film Clip Collection?

  • Film clips are short but evocative films up to about 20 seconds in length, whereas cinematic short films can be up to 60 seconds.
  • They are perfect for website banners (see mine at the top of this page!) where they can play continuously on a loop.
  • They can be silent or accompanied by music.
  • They are also really effective as scroll-overs on your website, to add depth and dynamic movement to your site.
  • Use them on social media - video is such a key format at the moment - on the grid plus save them to your highlights as a mini portfolio of your services.
If you need a reassuring, calming and gracious presence, to help with the process of being photographed/filmed then Emma is who you need to book.
I absolutely promise you, you will not be disappointed.

Q. Why does brand storytelling matter?

If consumers made purchases rationally they would simply make buying decisions based on the pros and cons of a product/service.


But have you ever bought something because it felt right? Because your gut told you to? Because you 'needed' it?


We buy when we make a connection to a brand and its story.


A story has the power to engage our hearts as well as our minds and elicit emotion. (Were you ever read bedtime facts as a child?!)


By telling a story you're connecting with your audience and building trust.


Your unique brand story will set you apart from your competition and differentiate your brand.

Q. Why should I use video on my website?
  • Videos are masters of storytelling. Videos that engage people by telling a story in which people can imagine themselves are a super powerful way of selling the benefits of your products/services.
  • Videos keep people engaged on your website for longer. And Google likes 'dwell time'. Websites with videos keep people on average 60% longer.
  • People need information to make informed decisions. Video can capture the hearts and minds of your audience to empower them to make their choice.
  • People buy people, so video will help people get to know, like and trust you. It's a unique and powerful way to share your personality and enable people to get to know you.
Q. Why does Google love video?

Video is a powerful storytelling marketing tool. It can drive sales, engagement and revenue.


Google doesn't necessarily know that you're sharing a video, but it knows that people are more engaged with your content and staying longer on your site. Google likes pages where people spend time, and so it'll learn that your website is engaging and important, which ultimately improves ranking.

Q Is it better to embed videos or link to them?

It's usually better to embed videos into your site. This means hosting them on a third party website such as YouTube or Vimeo, then embedding them into your web page.


Benefits of embedding videos include that it creates a better user experience, it's generally better for SEO, it results in increased time spent on your website since visitors stay on your page (they don't need to leave your page to watch the film), and it can help improve the searchability of your video.
