As a business, we were getting to the stage that we felt we needed more presence online, and doing a HR 101 Toolkit for anyone coming onto our website or YouTube channel was the best route for us to go down.
After putting out a tender for what we wanted from our video project, we pulled together several quotes. While Pixelwave wasn’t the lowest of the quotes, it was the discussions with JP that sold it for us. He was able to answer all our queries there and then, as well as responding in a very timely manner to our email queries when we had more queries.
I also did research and looked at the videos of each company, and felt that Pixelwave offered the best quality content, as well as being closely aligned with what we wanted from the project.
During the planning phase, all our queries were answered well in advance, and the format of how the day and videos would look all put in place. Even with the restrictions that were in place for COVID, JP talked us through all the measures that had been put in place and we felt very comfortable attending on site during this strange time
On the day of filming JP was amazing at making us feel at ease and helping us through each video. As this was our first time on video, naturally we were very nervous but JP kept us calm, gave us great feedback and kept the schedule and day on track so that we didn’t get too tired and lose the energy we wanted to portray in the videos.
During the editing phase, JP was there every time we wanted to change something, making professional recommendations and ensured that the videos we received were of the highest quality and were exactly what we wanted.
I cannot recommend Pixelwave Creative and JP enough to people. They will always be the company we return to for any future projects we have, and who we send clients to

It’s exactly 12 months on from when we launched our new branding with the help of pixelwave creative. We engaged with their director John Paul with a brief to create a series of 18 info videos for our students aspiring to join the Armed Forces which would be used across our social media platforms.
Our plan was to put students and staff in front of camera to give information advice and guidance and speak about personal experiences in order to help new and existing students in their pursuit of a career in the Armed Forces.
Some of our staff and students experienced high levels of anxiety at the prospect of being filmed, however, JP and his crew were fantastic in putting everyone at ease and making the environment as comfortable as possible. JP had such a calming and stress free manner that we achieved our goals within the time allotted. His flexibility and adaptability were key to achieving our targets.
From the first meeting to receiving the end product JP was readily contactable and supportive assisting with the planning and staging of the video and we were more than delighted to see the end product.
The videos have undoubtedly helped not only students on the programme but helped with attracting further new business and many others aiming to join the Armed Forces but not eligible for one of our programmes.
We can’t thank JP and the Team enough for their hard work on this project which has given our branding a professional cutting edge.

I asked JP and the team at Pixelwave Creative to create a 10 year birthday video animation to celebrate the milestone. They produced a fabulous piece of content that contained all the main things we wanted to present and we got some great feedback from clients. Thanks guys, as always a great job, so responsive and lovely to work with. Gill There Be Giants

I have been wanting to create videos for so long although the fear of presenting, coupled with the technical aspect of it, always made me shy away from it. I wanted to boost our social media presence and deliver some stronger, more personalised messages and since meeting JP within our network groups and more recently, seeing his presentations within "Ask The Experts Hour", he totally inspired and encouraged me to just give it a try and gave me some vital tips (Do's & Don'ts).
JP gave me a true and honest assessment of my videos and discussed things like, camera angle, backdrop, content and lighting as I originally had my back to a window which shaded my face, and even said that keeping it real and being me, rather than trying to act, really made me feel more comfortable in my delivery.
So, within lockdown, I have been doing Recruitment Videos and our view rate has increased significantly from getting 50-100 views to over 1000 views per video which has blown us away. This has proved that the power of visuals and video is successful. We have re-connected with people that we havnt spoken to in a while as they saw me on video and we have won new business from them.
Thank you so much for your help and professionalism JP. We will keep learning and progressing our videos with your help.

We asked Pixelwave to create a video to showcase what we do at icon kitchen studio. JP is fabulous at his job, makes you feel as relaxed as possible when in front of the camera. He managed to splice some old footage with some new and the finished video now has pride of place on our website. Thanks JP !
I approached Pixelwave to do some creative work for our business as they had been so highly recommended by a lot of other local business'. I worked closely with John Paul over a matter of weeks to perfect this project as it was a highly important aspect of our business being sound and quality. The end results were amazing, we are so so pleased with what Pixelwave presented us with. We were consulted the whole way through our project and given options to choose from which I found very professional. We will definitely be using them in the future, and cannot recommend any highly enough to other business'. From one local business to another it was really important to us to support one another, which we did. Thank you for going the extra mile Pixelwave!!

Really enjoyed the experience of working with Pixelwave. We had seen some of the previous high quality work created by them so brought them in to have a chat about our project. We wanted to create a "mockumentary" style light hearted video to share more of our story. The team at Pixelwave quickly understood what we wanted to do and shared their knowledge and experience on how to make it work.
We were going to do the filming on a Monday but due to circumstances out of our control we had to change it on short notice. Pixelwave did everything they could to accommodate this for us and we're extremely grateful.
The team were great to work with, both full of energy but easy going. They equipment they brought to film was really high quality and we were fully involved in the whole process. Once filming was done, most of the work is then done by them in their studio. Communication was great at this stage and they got a first draft to us within 48 hours. At this point you can really see how well thought out the shots are to create that final product that the viewer will see.
Overall we're all really happy with the video which can be viewed on our Busy Bins Facebook Page. I would recommend them to other people on the look out for reliable and high quality video content.

We recently asked JP at Pixelwave to produce a show reel of a recent Charity Event we organised. We simply supplied a load of digital photos and from this they produced an amazing video production with music and additional graphics within a matter of days. This has been shared on social media. A 'picture is worth a thousand words' - so what is the value of professionally made video or show reel? Hard to say but I can tell you that we have had loads of positive feedback from our clients and guests. Steve Cadman, Munro-Greenhalgh Insurance Brokers, Ramsbottom.

Being in front of a camera can be difficult but JP makes it so much easier and works with you every step of the way. His skills made it a breeze to get what he needed and captured our business in just the right way. Would highly recommend Pixelwave to get your video done!

Being asked to be part of the Best In Bury Business academy video was an honour , but then it dawned on me, "I would be 100%" outside of my comfort zone doing it. Could I survive it? and more so, if I could ,how would I look and sound on video. The nightmares started.
The day of the shoot arrived, and I just wanted to run way, but no chance. JP and his team had arrived . Immediately he put me at ease and talked me through what was going to happen. His calming nature started to break down my barriers and concerns. An hour later he said "cut" for the last time. How had that happened. Not only had I survived but I realized I had actually started to enjoy my time in front of the camera. A miracle had happened and it was all down to JP and his wonderful team.
Having now watched the video in front of 70 strangers and listened to their fantastic feedback I can say I am very proud of my achievement. There is no way I could have done it without the fantastic JP and his team. If he can work miracles with me then he can achieve anything.
I would highly recommend him.

Reply from Pixelwave Creative: Thank you so much Sally-Ann for taking the time to leave us such a wonderful review. We understand that the majority of the people that we film with don't feel comfortable in front of camera, so we try our best to make the filming experience as easy and as enjoyable as possible.
We thought you did a great job speaking to camera and that certainly comes across in the final video. Well done you, and thanks again.
JP @ Pixelwave Creative
Pixelwave Creative have produced two animated videos recently. A fun Christmas message and a brilliant transformation video showing our old brand transforming into our new one. The videos were excellent and we received a lot ot great feedback. They displayed our message visually so well - a picture paints a 1000 words! They are a very professional team, their creativity and products are very cost effective and I would highly recommend them. We have been so impressed that we have engaged them to do our new corporate video for the new web site.
Reply from Pixelwave Creative: Thank you Niel for leaving us such a positive review. We thoroughly enjoyed helping you, and People Matters, to communicate with your audience on both videos. We look forward to working with you again soon.

JP is not only a fantastic videographer, he is also a mind reader. He knew exactly want we needed without us having to ask. He is a true 'Expert' in his field. 5 star service, highly recommended.
Reply from Pixelwave Creative: Thank you Phil for your positive review. It's always great to work with yourself and Debi.
PS JP's not a mind reader, but he's a great listener and takes his time getting to know his clients and understanding what they want to achieve.

Pixelwave Creative recently filmed with us for the Yorkshire Children of Courage Awards. Whoever edited the video was some kind of genius, managing to make a coherent message from the raw footage of me stumbling many words and hesitating! The video will be really useful for us in future to explain very succinctly what we do to possible funders and the public.

"I cannot speak highly enough of the team at Pixelwave Creative with the services they provide in the production of our Heart Award Nomination videos which are used at the ceremony. Their communication and planning is fantastic along with the positive attitude and conduct when onsite at the hospital.
Many of our staff members are apprehensive at the thought of being filmed but JP puts them at ease and ensures the experience is a fun one, whilst also being mindful of the sensitivities surrounding our patient care. We have a busy schedule of filming as we need to accommodate filming of 33 individuals or teams with a limited timeframe after our judging event but in time for the award ceremony, these are turned around quickly with a short filming slot, before moving onto the next department. Even with this in mind, the filming never feels rushed and the production is done to a very high standard.
These videos are an integral part of the award ceremony, giving insight into the shortlisted nominations. Everyone enjoys seeing themselves and colleagues on the big screens around the room and it creates a real buzz in the event. I would highly recommend Pixelwave Creative and am looking forward to working with them again in the future.”
This is our second time working with JP and what a fantastic service he provides.
He just seems to understand, he gets inside our head and knows exactly what we're after!! The video he created for our recent
Awards Event was very well received and we loved it.
Always a pleasure working with JP. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending.
Reply from Pixelwave Creative: Thank you so much Diane for taking the time to leave a review and for sharing such positive feedback.

Thanks so much for taking the time to leave us feedback. It's great to know that you enjoyed the filming process. We understand that most people we work with are not comfortable speaking on camera so we make every effort to accommodate this and to help get the best out of the people we are filming with.

I have just completed a day's filming with JP from Pixelwave and have to say he is a true professional. We wanted to use video to recruit our next intake of new start up businesses for the Made in Bury Business Academy, and what better way than to get some footage of our current group. JP made the businesses very relaxed and comfortable with the filming, he knew instinctively how to get the best out of them. I am delighted with the mini videos received and am looking forward to the final finished edited film. Thanks, Debi
Reply from Pixelwave Creative: Thank you for taking the time to leave a review Debi. We're delighted to hear such positive feedback. It's always a pleasure to work with you and we love to help promote local Bury businesses. Having met another 4 of your Business Academy members it's clear you're providing great value to these new businesses. We hope our videos continue to assist in your marketing campaign and wish you luck for your forthcoming launch event.

We wanted a video to give people a more intimate feel of what it would be like to have their child’s party at Running Wild. It's only open for private events, so has limited exposure and we saw a video as being an ideal way to increase awareness.
We looked at other work that Pixelwave had done and realised they would be able to produce the style we wanted.
We had a few conversations with JP and met him on site a few days before the film. He was keen to understand exactly what we wanted to achieve and to take us through how everything would work. This included the timescales for turning around the finished video.
The video was delivered on time and I can only say we are delighted, it was just what we wanted. The response from customers has also been excellent.
We would be happy to work with Pixelwave Creative again and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to others.

JP and the team at Pixelwave Creative were absolutely excellent throughout – professional, friendly, informative and very quick to respond to my requests for information. JP showed me examples of previous work, provided upfront costings and talked me through the process, always with extremely quick responses. During the filming, JP and the team were very professional and put everyone at ease. We had previously looked at the most suitable venue for the filming so things went nice and smoothly on the day. The staff that were in front of the camera were very happy with the instructions JP gave as he explained how to come across in the best way possible and adjusted the autocue depending on the speed that each person felt most comfortable. He was happy to stop whenever necessary and to repeat areas that needed improvement.The final film exceeded my expectations and everyone has been very impressed with it. I wouldn’t hesitate to book Pixelwave Creative again and am already thinking of my next project. I would definitely recommend JP and Pixelwave Creative.

Our services are based on using psychology in business, so it can be quite hard to quickly convey what we do. We wanted to find a way of getting the advantages across without getting bogged down in too much technical detail and a video is a great way of doing this.
Pixelwave Creative provided some background thinking and advice before we started working on video content – in terms of what we were trying to do and why, and also some of the potential pitfalls which needed consideration. The guys at Pixelwave Creative are very responsive and flexible, and open to feedback, so the process of liaison was very much two-way, which is how I like to work. The aim of our video was to portray professional credibility but also keep sight of the individual relationships we build with our clients. I wanted viewers to feel that I was ‘talking straight to them’. The majority of the filming was ‘to camera’ in a studio situation but Pixelwave Creative also came out to a workshop and filmed some live facilitation, capturing participant viewpoints and feedback. That has helped show how our work is actually applied in the real world – and also provided some real ‘live’ testimonials, which can sometimes look a bit staged.
We were very pleased with the final end products. The editing part adds a whole other dimension and Pixelwave has managed to maintain interest and a sense of both excitement and credibility throughout! We have other videos planned and would certainly use Pixelwave again. I think we got ‘a lot of bang for our buck’!
