Education video production

Is your institution embracing film to make a splash?

At Beeston Media, we create beautiful, informative education videos to describe every aspect of life at universities and schools. Our films glow with clear narratives, golden moments of real-life authenticity and passionate testimonials.

Our track record of creating videos for educational institutions is exceptional (we’ve made over 400 films for the University of Bristol alone). We’ve shot every imaginable type of film - lectures, course and institution promos, funding bids, research explainers, snapshots of student life, faculty announcements, training films for staff development, student liaison videos, university outreach videos, fresher vlogs and films accompanying executive summaries.

We also work with universities and schools to develop cohesive education video strategies. So do let us know if you’d like help developing a signature video style for your whole organisation.

Why choose Beeston Media?

We boast a true video-making expertise in the education sector.

Our first foray into this field involved us making video prospectuses for schools. Then in 2011, the University of Bristol asked as to produce 52 short films to kick-start its YouTube channel. Our bond with the University has grown ever since. 

Other education clients include Aston University, UCAS, South West Doctoral Training Partnership (Exeter, Cardiff, Southampton, Plymouth, UWE universities) and Bonas MacFarlane.

We’ve produced a wide breadth of work for higher education, working across faculties and departments. Our education films have ranged from simple lectures shot with a single camera to highly technical Multiple Open Online Courses (MOOCs). We’ve also helped advise central PR and marketing offices on wider matters of education video strategy.

Thanks largely to our background in specialist factual film production, we remain unfazed by technical speech - indeed we’re proud of our ability to distil esoteric academic facts and serpentine arguments into clear, simple films that resonate with their target audience and spark action. We believe it’s this strong editorial ability that makes us stand out in a competitive video-production market.

As well as our core service of education video production, we often take still images of a project, usually at the same time as the main film shoot. Shooting video and stills on the same day gives a project's creative output a uniform look and is good for the budget / schedule too.

  • "I’ve been lucky enough to work with Beeston Media on several projects over the past 5 years. The reason we keep coming back for more is their great professionalism, innovative approach and keen eye for detail. It’s always a pleasure to work with them and see their final outputs for a project - their work is always outstanding."

  • "Beeston Media's videos for our massive open online course (MOOC) had a great impact on our learners’ experience. Penny and Hamish were crucial in helping us scripting the content in terms of text, images and music. They were also great in finding filming locations and in working with academics, especially with those who were more camera-shy. I hope that I will have the opportunity to work with them again."
